We’ve all experienced it and we’ve all said it. Unless you’re one of those nauseating people that finds the love of their life in high school.
I HATE BEING SINGLE. I WANT A BOYFRIEND/GIRLFRIEND. PEOPLE IN A RELATIONSHIP ARE STUPID. MY EX-BOYFRIEND IS GAY.
Well maybe that last one is Chelsea-specific, but we’ve all been at that point where we give up and start looking for cats at the humane society. We begin to think that we’ll never find that special someone because we haven’t yet and we’re impatient.
Nonsense, children. The best thing about life is it has a master Writer who is taking care of everything. We can force situations and try to make things happen but it probably won’t work out. Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.
Love finds you when its supposed to. Not a second earlier or later. All we can do is enjoy life and youth and being single. Now I’m going to share some insight.
If your marriage/serious relationship/longterm FWB works out, you’ll be committed to someone more than half of your life. Which means most of your life will be shared with someone else.
Don’t get me wrong, I love sharing. It will be great to have a partner in life, but at the same time, I love me. I love doing what I want to do. I love not worrying about someone else. I love not having in-laws.
For example, my twice married mother has been a wife collectively for 23 years (today is actually her anniversary with my wonderful stepdad). And she’s only 47 (she’ll be 48 in six days). In total, she was not-married single for 24 years. That’s not counting engagements or serious boyfriends.
We only have one chance to be our own person. Someday it will be great to have someone else, but right now I’m enjoying my youth.
And I hope, for your sake, that you are too.
