What?! Wait….Hold up…. You think there’s something wrong with moi?
Now at this point I could do one of two things: smack the shit out of her or listen to what she had to say. Well, if you know me, you know I’ve been working on being more patient…..so I listened. When she was done, I decided she was crazy to have even put these words together let alone say them out loud. I was told: You’re beautiful, a great Mom, love sports, successful, you like to go out and have fun…..why are you still single? See what I mean….cray-cray!!!
Why should something be wrong with me? What if I was one of those girls that was so jaded and never wanted to be in a relationship again? (btw..I’m not) What if I didn’t want to play the dating games anymore? What if I’m just enjoying the single life?
Here’s the deal: I have STANDARDS!!!!! I know I’ve been single for a while, but being in a relationship doesn’t define who I am. Don’t get me wrong, I go out every once in a while—who doesn’t? I don’t sleep around–never have. I actually enjoy spending time by myself—on occasion. I’m the girl who can dress up for a wedding and leave during the reception to catch a football game. The girl who can sip wine at a formal cocktail party and throw back whiskey shots during the big game.
I’m a Mom first, I laugh loudly, I drink socially, I love sports, and I curse like a sailor!
If you can’t handle the basics along with everything else, you don’t need to be around—point blank period. Why should I waste my time?
So no, my BFF, there’s nothing wrong with me. I’m exactly the way I should be: Single & Freaking FABULOUS! The only BS I need in my life is bags and shoes.
Although my facebook relationship status doesn’t mirror yours….I might actually be happier!!!
