Musings of a Single Gal

Musings of a Single Gal

Recently I was on the phone with a girlfriend who was lamenting being single. This got me thinking. I don’t begrudge my current single status. Do I want to be happily married with children? Yes, I do. But am I sitting awake at night worrying about this? Not at all.

As Patty on The Millionaire Matchmaker recently said – “You are 1 date away from a boyfriend.”

Since my last long term relationship I have been: to Greece (on my own); to Hawaii (with my Mom); to Vegas (with the girls); and had numerous overnight/ weekend trips to San Diego and Palm Springs (on my own). I’ve had 4 marriage proposals: one insulting, two sweet, and one Oh My God I Had No idea. I’ve had my heart re-broken by my ex. Broken again by my most recent lover. Been asked by countless men to be their girlfriend. And oh yes, had at least 50 first dates – some hilarious, some excruciatingly painful, and some nice, warm and fuzzy.

Being Single – Maybe You Are Right Where You Belong!

Being Single – Maybe You Are Right Where You Belong!

I spent over 3 1/2 years being single. And more than once someone would say to me “What’s wrong with you? There must be something wrong with you because you have been single for so long.” Sound familiar? In that time I had 4 marriage proposals, plus 3 other guys wanting to have children with me, and 1 “live with me long term, because I no longer believe in marriage” offer. And many others wanting to be my boyfriend. In other words, I was single because I chose to be single. Not because I couldn’t find a man.

Stop Waiting, Start Doing

Stop Waiting, Start Doing

I wrote this post two weeks before I was reintroduced to my soon to be husband. I can’t help but wonder if my shift in mentality (i.e. my increased ability to allow myself to have) had something to do with it…

In my early 30’s I kept putting things off, because I was waiting to do them/ have them when I was married or in a long-term relationship. I didn’t have the furniture I wanted, because I figured, why bother? I’ll be married soon, so put the money in savings. I didn’t go to the resorts I wanted to go to, because I didn’t want to go alone and didn’t always have a girlfriend willing or able to go.

Being Single and Feeling Lonely

Being Single and Feeling Lonely

Dr. Wayne Dyer once said “You cannot be lonely if you like the person you’re alone with” Hmm. Well, while in theory, this is a great quote.; in reality, I’m guessing the man has never lived alone for a few years, without family nearby.
