Have you ever noticed that after you have had a few drinks some things seem to happen in slow motion? I sometimes notice it and think there is a corallation between that and the kind of alcohold I am drinking.
But that is beside the point.
The point I am trying to make is that this weekend I seemed to be overly sensitive to some comments my friends were making about me. Comments like, "I can't believe you are still single," or "really? you're still single?" and of course my favorite..."I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU ARE STILL SINGLE!" (which is similar to "I can't believe you're still single" only it involves yelling loud enough so that everyone in the bar can hear it).
These comments got me thinking.
Single is NOT a status! It is a word that describes a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others.
I am single because I refuse to settle!
I refuse to change my relationship status for someone who falls short of what I deserve.
I know my self value and I have chosen a spot in my heart for a real man. A man who is mature enough to understand that loyalty, commitment, stability and 100% honesty are all a priority for me, not an option.
So friends, I beg you...stop telling me I'm too picky! Stop freaking out because I am "still" single.
Yes, I want a man in my life who will love me and my kids unconditionally. No, I don't want to die alone. But I'm only 41...I have plenty of time to be picky, right?
