Please Dont Judge Me Because I Am Single.........I am a 33 year old female and have had a string of bad relationships with men since I was 15 years old. The first boyfriend committed suicide, the second boyfriend was convinced I was cheating on him because his jealous friend told him so, the third boyfriend was an abuser of the very worst kind and the fourth was an emotional vampire. All relationships have ended horrifically. Yes, I know breakups typically arent nice but these ended with me being an emotional wreck. There are only so many times that you can pick yourself up and dust yourself off and start again.
I have heard this string of questions soooo many times (quite often from more mature ladies) :
"How many children do you have?" - "None"
"Oh but you are married arent you?" - " Nope'
"So your engaged then?" - "No"
"But you have a long term boyfriend?" - "No I dont"
Then the look of disbelief crosses their face.....''So you are single??"
But I ask what is wrong with that? I would much rather be single than stuck in a loveless marriage to someone. It is not a disease to be single. We are just like everybody else. There are many times that I crave the feeling of affection but I have come to the conclusion that I am much better off being alone than hurt in the long run. Everyone says " just take another chance" but Im not going to just hook up with someone for the sake of it, just to be able to say to people I am in a relationship. I think I am just one of those people in life that are just destined to be single and I will try my best to embrace it!!
