The A Through Z's Of Single Life
Single life is a mixture of sweet and sour, with a whopping dash of plain ole ordinariness thrown it. There are many things to love about single life, but there are also circumstances that can be challenging, if not inconvenient.
You'd have to be over 30 and single to truly understand that it's not all lonely, nor is it all pleasure and indulgence. It just is what it is, the A through Z's.
Autonomy. You reign supreme
Barrage of personal questions about your dating life
Cereal for dinner #awesome
Dry spells of dating
Eradicating bad habits and trying to create better ones
Fighting for control of the remote isn't an issue
Girls/Guys night out is pretty much every night...with yourself
Heel kicks of joy that you're not in a bad relationship
Invisibility. You're legit sexy, but seems you're presently the only one noticing
Journeying into another year with uncertainty about your future
Knowing exactly what you want and what the exceptions to the rules are
Lots of late nights at the office? No problem. Next up, promotion!
Me time for doing what makes you happy
No tax incentives
Options. The benefit of choices
Pride and trust in yourself as a person who stands on their own two feet
Quiet time for relaxing
Regret about the one that got away
Shared bills? Nope. All you, chief
Trying online, blind, speed, co-worker, and traditional dating
Unshaven body parts for 3 days too long. No one's there to notice
Valentine's Day depression. "No one loves me," you cry!
Wealth of perspective gained on life, people, and on re-imagining purpose
X-rated. The type of mythical dating experiences that you never have
Your quirky obsessions and hobbies don't get side-eyed or discouraged
Zzz...sleeping in whatever ugly pajamas you want. Wild morning hair. Snoring. Drooling. No judgement. Sweet!
