Why Being Single Isn’t That Bad

A few weeks ago I decided to try Tinder. Tinder is the reason being single isn’t that bad.

The above screen shot is actually three different profiles put together. Upper left is a guy posing with a horse that’s LICKING him. In the face. #NotAFetishImInto Upper right is a guy who clearly takes too many steroids. Next. Bottom left is Garrett. Poor guy. He’s been scammed too many times. But don’t worry. He “nos about scammers now.”

This guy is just amazing. I mean, let’s be honest. This is a dude you could really bring home to mom and dad.

He’s high, but he’s my soul mate. And Fabio’s twin.

Have speedo. Will travel.

When I showed my mom this one, she said, “So…you get the kid, too?” Built-in babies!

I “doesn’t” feel guilty about having sex, but I’m not really digging the abstract boobie art.

‘Female Freedom Has an Expiration Date’ – Being 35 and Single

This was beautiful and meaningful to me. I’m 33 and sometimes it does feel like female freedom has an expiration date. Doctors tell women my age that if they want to have more than one kid, they’d better start trying around 35 and if they want just one child, they should start at 38 or risk complications and miscarriages. Of course, there’s always one or two women who will tell you the story of how they gave birth over a certain age without any issue, but regardless, women seemingly have this choice to make: either live our dreams and be childless or make sacrifices so we can be mothers. Being a mother is a wonderful thing, I’m close to my own mom, but I’m not ready to be a mother.

But it’s not just about motherhood and whether we decided to mother or not. It’s that idea that women are incomplete without someone, without love, when we certainly aren’t. Few people worry about men who are perpetually single, but women who are face a myriad of questions.

Watch the video. It’s beautiful.

If I End Up Single…

If C and I break up, here’s my plan:

1. Send off my book proposal in the next year.

2. Raise my Credit Score.

3. Get a book deal.

4. Buy a house.

5. Have a baby.

 

All of those are pretty much the same “plans” but I wasn’t going to have a baby so soon. However, my clock is ticking and I really don’t see the point in waiting–especially if I’m not dating anyone.
