I debated in titling this page “Singledoom” as a tongue-in-cheek homage to some people I know who tend to say: “oh, but why haven’t you ever been married” or “don’t you want to get married” or “are you gay.” The answers are: haven’t met the right man; I don’t know; definitely not although being bi-sexual might increase my chances of finding my soul mate.
Being single isn’t about being alone. It’s about the journey in finding a companion that will enhance my existence. That journey can be treacherous, comical and sometimes dull. I do thank the tender mercies of past loves because had I pursued a life with any one of them, I wouldn’t be the optimistic woman I am today. (Of course that optimism is sometimes laced with a little sarcasm.) The world is round, but people tend to think “square.” I want out of the box.
“…the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
I struggle daily to live up to this quote. What can I say … I’m a beautiful work in progress.Follow @lafemmeroar
