First, let me say congratulations to one of my best friends who got engaged tonight. Now that the cats out of the bag, I can go back to conversations where my mind isn’t centered on one thing — not telling her!
This announcement got me thinking of my status and where I am right now. Single and currently on the floor in my bedroom writing this.
You see, I’m not the “typical” girl who dreams of finding her prince charming. I have never dreamt of my wedding day as most girls do. Hell, I’ve tried to avoid the marriage talk all together.
I don’t hold my breath for Mr. Right and I don’t get depressed about being single. To me, single means playtime. Fun all nighters with the girls and flirting our way into clubs and on multiple tables. It’s about living in the moment and being able to do whatever it is that your little heart desires. Not having to answer to a man is like being in heaven with tons of chocolate that can’t make you fat.
And frankly, I’m not even sure there is such thing as a Mr. Right, at least for me. See, I’m what they call a statistic. My parents were divorced; therefore, I am more likely to get divorced.
Breaking up is hard enough and I could never imagine splitting up with someone who I shared my life and soul with. Too me, it is better being alone then ever having to experience that.
So, before you get all sappy and feeling depressed for me, let me tell you of something I do believe in — Mr. Right Now’s or MRN’s as I like to call them.
They fit your lifestyle at the moment and the only aisle you can imagine walking with them down is the grocery store for late night booze.
These are often the guys that you don’t tell many of your girlfriends about and you never talk about MRN’s to your family — they will have too many questions and you won’t know the answers. “Where did you meet him?” –Oh what was that bars name again? “How old is he?”- At least 21, unless that was a fake id. “What does he do for a living?”-We were making out the whole time, never got around to asking. This is NOT the way you want a conversation to go when your dad and grandma are in the room.
Dating is supposed to be about testing the waters and seeing what’s out there, what works for you. I am not saying that marriage isn’t something completely sacred and shouldn’t be held at the highest level by any means.
What I am saying is that it is a personal choice. If you step in that direction, you better be able to handle it when times get tough. You chose this path because you wanted it — so suck it up and stick it out.
Unless he cheats on you. In that case, grab your girls, surround him and repeatedly take turns kicking him in the balls. BOYS…take note!
