Catch Me Elsewhere
People ask me why am I single all the time LOL! They say you’re pretty, smart, and educated so why don’t you have a man? Oh you must be crazy??! Some people contribute my singleness to me being too picky (which I’m definitely not!). My response to people concerned with my relationship status is that I’m single by choice and I’m content with it.
Society makes women feel like we have to be married by the age of 25 and start pumping out babies before we are 30 because our “biological clocks” are ticking! I think this is why divorce rates are so high. People are rushing to get married without really getting to know the person that they are with because they feel like their lives are on a timeline.
Honestly I’m not in any rush to get married or have kids. When I think about marriage I think about forever and that’s just something I’m not trying to put a time limit on. If I decide to get married I only want to do it once so I’m taking my time, exploring my options, and making sure that whoever I decide to commit myself to will be able to love me unconditionally and for me to be able to do the same for him.
I do date from time to time but I haven’t met that guy who I want to commit myself to fully. Most of the relationships that I’ve been in from my past have brought negativity to my life and have broken me down spiritually. During my time of being single I have been able to discover who I am as a person outside of a relationship; I’ve also discovered my self-worth and I will no longer let a man define who I am as a person.
Many people act like being single is a bad thing but it can actually be very beneficial to your life. Although I’m single I’m really enjoying my life at this point! I recently moved to a new state and I’m enjoying meeting new people and living in the moment.
Right now I’m focused on achieving my goals, having fun, and embracing all that life has to offer! If my soulmate happens to find me along the way I’m cool with that and as far as my biological clock goes I’m hitting the snooze button on that bad boy! LOL!
