Excuse me? I am far from alone or lonely.
If I wanted to reactivate my dating profiles on all the dating sites, I’d have no end to the dates. No kidding, I had dated 13 men thanks to those sites, in a very short period of time. The Count being number 13, evidentially he is NOT my lucky number guy. OR maybe he was, he showed me I was still caught in the cycle of being a pleaser and that had to stop. No more bending me to mold to someone elses specifications. I could start that whole saga again, many of those men would still love to be on my dance card. I know this due to the sudden influx of communication when I changed my status in life back to single.
I have a multitude of friends, both men and women. At any time I can find a male friend to go have a beer, a sporting event or something a bit more intimate. I have girlfriends I can call to go hit a movie, dinner or a cemetery tour (don’t judge, it was by full moon and very cool). My kids love to do many of these and other things. My Divas, yes we all love this and more. I have plenty of people in my life to fill any need I have on a friendship or social level. If I stay home and do nothing, it is my choice!
Single does not mean lonely or alone. Single = FREEDOM! INDEPENDENCE!!
Other than my work responsibilities, I can come and go as I please! I see who I want, when I want, do what I want when I want to do it!
Alone? Really? Nope not at all.
If I want to sleep next to someone, that can be easily arranged too. Yes, I have friends I can call if I want to spend the night in the arms of someone special. Believe me they need to be special to make that list.
My point is: being single doesn’t mean I am lonely. It simply means I am not committed to anyone….but me!
In the new year I plan to write 365 reasons that being single ROCKS. I know that is a huge undertaking but I think I can do it! Every day I will find some reason why being INDEPENDENT is awesome!
