Single, Single Fo Fingle


Eek, jeepers and good grief, I’m paraphrasing my actual thoughts. So many people are really down on the single life lately. Worse, I’m noticing married friends vaguely insulting the single people.

Ok, look, I’ll admit it, it’s NOT all frigging roses over here. My life can be extremely lonely, I’m currently watching Seinfeld reruns and I hate that idiot. I can go out, but I’d have to put a bra on, no thanks bra, just no thanks.

I don’t pretend that I’m happy, I am currently very content with my life. I am enjoying the silence that comes with being an empty nester and it hasn’t been that long. However there are moments that I truly wish I could share, like when I make something especially delicious, but I’ll eat it all easily enough.

Loneliness can be debilitating but being with the wrong person can be deadly.

Damn this is all so depressing, I’m putting the bra on.

  1. Here’s a pro-single life story: I went to the supermarket this morning, Crazy, crowded Market Basket on a snowy Sunday. I overheard 3 or 4 couples arguing as I wove my way through the aisles with my little basket of groceries. I got what I wanted and got out of there with a feeling of freedom so beautiful, it but a bounce in my step — and this was before coffee.

    Enjoy your resentments, couples of the world. I’ll have an extra-helping of singledom, thankyouverymuch.

  2. It’s not rainbows and butterflies on either, huh? I suppose it comes down to one’s preferences – like picking b/t two poisons.

    “Loneliness can be debilitating but being with the wrong person can be deadly.” I found this particularly interesting b/c I always thought it was the other way around. Also, just b/c someone’s not single/lonely doesn’t mean they’re with the wrong person. Least I hope not :p

  3. “…being with the wrong person can be deadly.”

    So true! Before I met my husband, every relationship seemed to suck the life out of me. Ultimately, no one was happy because my lifelessness wasn’t what they were looking for either.
    Being single was much better than being “trapped”.

    Luckily, I’ve married someone who never makes me feel trapped and lets me have my freedom and make my own choices (unless they affect him too).

  4. You are hilarious! Even when you’re depressed. You’re absolutely right that being with the wrong person is worse than being without a person. Bra or no bra, the right person is out there somewhere and he’s looking for you too.
