Single as a Pringle.
One of the hardest things in life is being single. Some people are happy just being by themselves and living life one day at a time. The only thing that sucks is the societal pressure to have a love life.
I go up and spend Sundays with Grandma and Grandpa. I love them so much. After recently losing Granny I realized that I do not have that much much time left with them. I want to be there for them until they pass.
Every Sunday they ask if there is anything new in my life. This always leads to, “how is your love life?” My grandparents got married young. If I remember correctly, Grandma was 16 and Grandpa was 19. They have been married for 68 years this June. I am from Utah. People tend to get married young here. That was almost 70 years ago. My classmates from high school waited until after graduation.
I am happy being single if someone comes along that is great. I am enjoying life. I want to make something out of my life and have a career before I settle down and have a family.
I only want to be married once and make it last. In my opinion, there are a few things that I need to do to help me achieve this. To start, I need to know who I am as a person, what I want in life, and how I am going to get there.
Maybe my Romeo will walk into my life tomorrow. Maybe he already is in my life. No one knows. I am in no rush to jump into a relationship. I want to enjoy the time that I have along the way.
I want to enjoy the people in my life and live in the moment. The last thing I want to do is to not enjoy the life I have right now. If a man comes along I don’t want to be worried about a relationship, the future, or any of that mess. I want to enjoy the time that I have with them.
Life is too damn short to be worried about what the future holds.
