So I have a guest blog to write.
About marriage/weddings/etc. My take on that? Yeah, how I feel about being the single girl… at my age… at every single wedding.
Hell, people don’t even say “you’re next” to me, it’s just that sad look of “oh Becca’s still single”
Hey people, deal. I do.
“Sure I’ll call”
… Hope he wasn’t waiting by the phone.
Small town living is… a little different. Especially when you’re not into that whole bar star thing.
… and there’s a good chance you’re going to run into that person in the grocery store, or Javamoose or that person turns out to know 3 of your family members and have 9869876 mutual friends on facebook.
I get that my lifestyle is different and obviously that’s going to take a hell of a person to deal with my crazy (… what? You thought I was talking about prep? yeah no)… but it’s just hard. Sure it doesn’t help that I date the wrong people (um… anyone else remember mr "it’s okay you’re chubby, I like you anyway”???) but small town living makes this a lot harder.
So to my single friends out there…. how do YOU deal with being single through wedding season. I’m really interested to hear from anyone a little older too… mostly so we can come up with snappy comebacks together.
My favorite will always be “if I wanted something drooling on me I’d get a puppy”.
Yes. I said that.
I actually kind of like being single. I admit it. It’s… easy. Does that make sense? I don’t need to plan my day around anyone else or worry about anything other than me. I can sit here in my housecoat drinking my coffee and yelling at fritz to stop chewing on my plant (again) without thinking “oh crap, do I have mascara smudged under my eyes and bedhead? mystery gone”. There’s no need to justify the gym or my meals or explain for the umpteenth time why I can’t have beer and pizza.
Yes, the right person will respect all of that, but I’ve been single so long it’s just habit. So any help or comments would be greatly appreciated!
