“You’re happily single???”

Yes, I did have someone say that to me today. Why does it always surprise people that I’m happy with my life? people are always talking about their boyfirends and their ex-boyfriends and who’s dating who. I don’t care! And I’d rather not be gossip fodder. But seriously, why does it surprise people that I’m trying to retain what innocence that I have left. I know that a boyfriend isn’t going to fulfill my needs. I know that God has a plan for my life,and I know that when God has a man for me, he’ll plop him in my lap. Some things you have to work at, and others are just divinely inspired. I wouldn’t have my amazing musical ability if I hadn’t worked for seven long laborious years to get here. My way of “practicing” at relationships, is saving myself for one. Like, what would happen if ten years down the road the perfect man comes down the road and all four of my brothers like him. That’s like a green like from God, right? What if he looked at my track record and said “I don’t like the fact that you dated five guys in highschool”… that would triggor a really long idiotic and most likely painful conversation about past relationships. What’s the point? Why not let God take care of things, and just sit back and wait for the perfect guy to fall out of the sky? I guess in today’s culture it’s a sign of “being accepted” or cool-ness to have a significant someone. I think it’s a sign of maturity to live in a culture like this and NOT partake of it. It’s hard to have a relationship with someone, but it’s even harder to NOT have a relationship with someone when every one is pushing you towards it. It helps that I’m not a sucker for peer pressure though ;)

Well, that’s my little note for the day(just so you know, regularity is coming, I promise)

    Good for you! Trust me, it only gets worse as you get older. “You’re 23 and you’re HAPPY being single?” *grin* Sometimes it is fun just to see people’s reactions to such a truth. :)
    sure, you’ll have hard times and times you really wish you had a “boyfriend” (whatever that looks like to you) but it really will be worth it in the end. I’m proud of you!

    I’m not going to lie. I saw this and thought, “What? Happily single? My FOURTEEN YEAR OLD BABY SISTER IS TALKING ABOUT BEING HAPPILY SINGLE?” I’m just starting to feel like people will listen when I share with them about the experience of singleness–and I’m 23.

    How can anyone not be single at 14? (Of course, you know my strict adherence to the proper definition of the word “single”.)

    Words notwithstanding, I appreciate your position. Go for single girls everywhere! God made me this way, I’ll stay this way until He calls me another way.

    btw, the hot guy is a jerk, and just because I think He’s hot, doesn’t mean I’m going to…. seduce him or something. I’m not a normal girl you know ;)
