I am Single.
It’s not an ailment, its a state of being WITHOUT a romantic love interest in one’s life.
<Advisory Warning: What you’re about to hear might shock and even offend you, specially if you’re in a relationship>
And guess what, it’s actually, OK to be in such a state.
If your life is marred by the companionship of another and you cannot but help for me to feel the vomit like conformity that you experience on a daily basis, take my advice and delay that phone call, ignore the niggling feeling you’re experiencing, much like an itch on the inside of your throat that needs scratching to ask me any of the following:
“So… you seeing anyone?”
“Wedding bells soon for you then?”
“Hey, so you got someone in your life?”
I’m saying something politely, and in many words that I would often say using 2 choice words. You’re intelligent, heck you’re married, why wouldn’t you be… Figure it out.
As for me, I’ve recently over come the emotional roadblock causing in me the longing to be one part of a happy duo. So thank you so much for your completely insincere and empty concern but I’m actually happy not being in a relationship.
Maybe one day, you will be able to see it my way.
Maybe one day you’ll realise that what defines you does not so another person. Maybe one day you’ll become conversationally mature enough to have a verbal exchange with another person about your mutual interests, rather than limiting the exchange to the 2 ideas that monitor your life. House and Husband.
Maybe one day, you’ll treat me the way I treat you, and maybe you might even see me the way I see you, as a multi-dimensional human being with more to offer the world than their life with a partner.
Maybe one day you’ll have something more to offer.
