I am almost scared to say it out loud but I like it, being single. I like sleeping alone at night, making snow angels in the middle of the bed. I like not having to compromise. I like going to the movie I want to see and the restaurant I like to eat at… I like sitting around with my hair a mess and no makeup on. I like smoking and drinking as much as I like… I like watching what I want to see on television. I like just doing what I want. So if I like being single so much, why am I looking to date online? Well I do miss having a man in my life, when I’m sick or when I’m going through something with my parents (in case you didn’t know they’re both sick). When something great is happening in my life or something I hate to do around the house needs to be done, i.e. trash being put out, the house needing to be painted, car washed, etc. I also like a man being around when I need to be taking care of, you know a bike ride.
The truth of the matter is as much as I would love to have an Idris Elba, Shemar Moore, Laz Alanso, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Columbus Short, or Mike Colter in my life, I’m not ready. I have a lot of things to work on in my life and a lot of work to still do on me before I can get into any type of relationship. So until I’m ready, I’m in no hurry. When I’m ready and able, I will be in a relationship. If I got into one before then, it would be like all the rest, when I meet the guy, instead of thinking of our wedding day, I will be thinking about how and when we will break up. I’m not ready. I think as women that is something we have a hard time adjusting to… we are taught from the minute they “it’s a girl” that we are supposed to be married and have children. We hear in Fairy tales and see it in teen dramas and later chic flicks. We are supposed to have a family and settle down. Well I tried it and I wasn’t ready. Even if the bastard hadn’t cheated on me, we would still be divorced by now because I wasn’t ready.
My advice to you single ppl reading my blog is get ready BEFORE you get in a relationship. You have nothing but time 🙂
❤ and Later Days,
