I think its interesting the way people assume Im single by circumstance and not choice. Yes, I am now open to finding the "one," but that wasn't always so.
In the very recent past, I was dead set against a committed relationship. The very thought of sharing my personal space made me physically ill. My stomach would tighten and I would feel very uneasy.
That's why I like to move so slow, because I want to be totally sure that who I choose is worthy of me allowing them to use my bathroom. (I say that because I don't let guys use the bathroom in my bedroom. I make them use the main bathroom in the hallway.)
Anyway, I digress.
I've been posting my blog entries on different sites, and its funny the way people make comments like, "you'll find the one soon," or "you're too aggressive, you'll never find a man like that." The best ones are from people who try to tell me that I need to follow the rules of dating if I want to snag a man.
Sometimes I correct them, and sometimes I don't. But I just want to yell sometimes, "People do date for FUN, you know!!!"
Just because I go out on a date doesnt mean Im looking for a ring. And even if I were, it doesnt mean it's with each guy I go out with. I mean, look, Im single and I enjoy being single. Im open to a commitment, but it has to be with the right person. so, dating is fun for me. A free meal, and (hopefully) good conversation.
The only thing about being single is that it's lonely on random occasional nights. That's the only drawback I see at this point. Ha ha ha
And eventually, I will settle down, and I do want to work toward that with someone, but in the meantime, Im not down, Im not desparate and I can get married tomorrow if I want. I just have to WANT it.
Okay, Im done venting. That is all...
More stories coming soon. Just been super busy.
