People Who Mean Well.....
EDIT: I have since found someone incredibly special--just goes to show that when you aren't even expecting it, the right love can come along and ♥♥♥♥ I'm so glad I didn't rush, it allowed me to find the perfect guy♥
I have since left this group....... but go ahead and enjoy the story.
I'm tired of people looking at me in shock when I say I'm single. They always say the same crap, "but you're so pretty, surely you can't have a problem getting dates." UGH! Why does everyone assume I can't be happy single--as though I'm somehow incomplete without a boyfriend to latch on to. I'm not a barnacle, or some kind of fungus---I can survive on my own!
I like being single. That doesn't mean I never want to be in a relationship, but I'm certainly not going to rush into one at this point. In fact, a couple of months ago I decided to take a long break from dating--period. After a few emotionally draining relationships, I realized I kept picking out guys who are much more dramatic and argumentative than I am. I'm naturally a very laidback, peaceloving and I just like to find the humor in day to day life. Somehow I was getting mixed up with guys very different than me and it was causing me a lot of misery.
Well I am very happy when I don't have someone in my life who expects me to answer to him. I need a break to just focus on me, but when I am finally ready to put myself back out there, I expect a partnership, not a dictatorship----and I definitely need someone who doesn't yell or argue, but can rationally and logically express himself without being quarrelsome, manipulative, unreasonable or possessive.
Anyhoo, for the time being I wish people would relax with the baffled looks and, "but you're so pretty" crap. Yes I stay in great shape and I brush my hair and I even wear heels! LOL! Sheesh, taking care of yourself should not just be to lure a mate! I don't wanna look like crap, just for the sake of not looking like crap! Should I stop taking showers too? LOL ;-P
Meh, I know they mean well. It's just that I'm smart, I've accomplished some pretty cool things so far, and I have many more aspirations.....but all I hear is, "Wow, you look great--how come you're still single?" Arrrrrrrrrrrrrgh! @#&%*@!$#&$@%*^$@$%&@&%$%&!!!!!
