A while ago, I said that I had found a blogging challenge that I wanted to complete! Well, today is the day that I start that blogging challenge. What is it? It’s the Single Woman’s 30 Day Blogging Challenge. Go check it out and start writing!
I can’t pretend to be shocked when I hear this question being asked. I have heard it all before. I have heard it all too often, too.
Don’t get me wrong. I like being single. In fact, I’ve written about how being single is awesome. I’ve also written about what it’s like to date me, why being in a relationship is awesome, and a few first dates that I would like to go on…one day.
I’m not going to sit here and write some sob story about how some boy, Bob*, broke my heart and, consequently, I decided that all men are the spawn of satan. I’m not going to sit here and write out a mini pity party for my singledom. Nope. Sorry. That isn’t going to happen.
I have dated. Sometimes one person. Sometimes multiple people at the same time. Because why not? I can do what I want. I am a female. Hear me roar and all that 😉
That being said, my Facebook status still reads ‘single‘.
Even after seeing the same guy for a year (or close to it) and falling for him, my relationship status still read ‘single‘.
So, why am I still single?
I wish I had the answer.
I’ve written the last two-hundred and something words of ramble because I am still trying to figure out why I’m single myself.
I think we live in a society where it is odd to be okay with being single. Heck, look at The Bachelor/Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise. They are shows and spin offs that are based on people finding relationships and that ‘happily ever after’. And we lap it up. Clearly. I mean, who didn’t watch the finale of The Bachelor?
You, my friend, are a unicorn.
I’m still single because I like my independence. Too much.
I’m still single because I haven’t met anyone who ‘ticks all my boxes’.
I’m still single because I like dating a lot. Why do you want that to end?
I’m still single because I like being able to blog at 1am on a Friday morning and not be judged for it.
I’m still single because I haven’t tried to see a future with someone.
They sound like silly reasons, don’t they? In all honestly, they aren’t reasons at all.
A while ago, I did a quiz that determined my personality type. Apparently I’m an ISTP, which explains a lot when it comes to my dating style. I am all for relationships. I like them. However, I do like feeling like I have a little bit of flexibility when it comes to dating. If you happen to read my personality profile then you would see that ‘it’s a bit like nailing Jell-O to a tree’. If I like you, then I will do my damnedest to make it work.
Though my track record isn’t a reflection of that.
Why am I single?
Why don’t you mind your own business? 😉
