Five Ways You Know You’ve Been Alone For Too Long

Five Ways1. You can carry a freezer up the stairs by yourself because you have to.

2. You can climb on the roof and adjust the satellite, repair some shingles and why not fix the bricks on the chimney?

3. You have sweatpants for every day of the week and sexy tights for Saturdays.

4. You stop flirting, start making true friends and real connections. Some with other women and their spouses, people bake stuff for you!!!

5. You walk into your own home and think “This place is so pretty, it’s exactly perfect for me.”

That’s when you know, you have truly evolved.

I have cats too, lots and lots of cats.

  1. Love this and so true! I can move large pieces of heavy furniture up and down stairs all on my own to the amazement of my friends (even their husbands!)….I love having to figure out things on my own and think it’s one of the best things about being single :).

  2. 😀 I’m not single but, when you make friends with other couples, they totally do bake stuff for you! Weird. Also, I don’t bake (or cook) so it’s mighty awkward when I don’t reciprocate. Then I lose brownies and stuff. It’s sad. I love #3 & #5–one I have, one I don’t.

  3. First time visitor here (I follow you on Twitter)…

    I can relate to all of these. As a matter of fact, I’m sitting in my sweats as we speak. The same sweats I’ve worn all weekend… but that’s a different story.

    I’ve assembled every piece of furniture in my house, including the sound bar I attached to my 50 inch TV last night. I almost threw my freaking back out but, hey, now I can watch “The Golden Girls” in surround sound.

  4. cats are important. and it’s not true what they say about cats and women. that the more you have, the more likely you’ll stay single. we just happen to be good and sniffing out trouble for you and then use his leg for a scratching post…

  5. Single and proud of myself for doing my own DIY. Also loving not having to share a wardrobe. It is going to take a lot for me to give up my wardrobe space and organisation.

  6. I have been single fo over twenty years and although if I have a freezer that needs moving, I will pay someone to move it for me. I may get a cat if the cat can feed itself. I’m a Florida beach bum so I have no sweat pants, and most women flirt with me, however, I do not recognize most of their flirtations. Great posting!

  8. Hi, I’m visiting from the BlogShareLearn Linky. Though I’ve been a fan for a while now. Even though I’ve been married forever, I love your humor & honesty. I’m sure many people feel exactly the same way but don’t have the courage to say the things you say. Thanks for sharing & always providing me with a good laugh!

    Have a great week!

  10. You mop the floors naked and don’t give a f*ck. Wait, I don’t live alone. Maybe this is why my 16 year old thinks I’m insane. Ah, well, body shame is lame. ha ha.

  11. I’m there after seven years–with the dog. I can hang out on the backporch naked and load the woodstove from the woodpile on the front porch wearing nothing but snow boots. Can’t carry the freezer, but I know who to call for heaving lifting.

  15. Love this! I just painted my home by myself with a 16 foot roller in a day and had a beer and still felt sexy! Love my life…lost 280 pounds when I signed the divorce! Lol. My women tribe keep me real and have never been suicidal either!
