Recently, I read an article of a similar title and that had me pondering about my perpetual single-hood, which is what prompted me to write this post. I wasn’t sure if it qualifies as an appropriate fellowship blog post. Nevertheless, is a reflective piece of writing.
I have been single for the last four years. Well, mostly single. And I’ve realized that I share a love-hate relationship with that status. While it is great to take your own decisions, I could certainly use some help at times, or even have someone take them for me altogether! I enjoy my own company, love making plans on my own or sometimes have no plans at all! But wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to meet after a long day at work, make impromptu travel plans or simply spend a relaxed weekend watching movies and cuddling?
Of course there are times when I can’t thank the good heavens enough for not having to deal with all the drama that comes with relationships at times. A couple of trials and errors in the past have only made me realize that I can’t handle the mushiness and clinginess. But I also know people who are in mature and stable relationships sans the drama and insecurities. Being single and independent is great, no doubt. But I don’t want to miss out on the perks of being in love any longer than I already have! I have known that feeling and yearn for it sometimes. I guess I just have to wait for now. Don’t you worry child, heaven’s got a plan for you – I tell myself!
Well, now that you’ve got a sneak-peek into the mind of a perpetually single girl – always having ambivalent feelings towards her single-hood, why all these thoughts suddenly you might wonder. Well, the whole staying away from home, having to deal with workplace issues all by myself, not having a go-to person is really difficult to deal with at times and is making me go nuts at the moment! A companion would’ve certainly made the grind easier! For now, let me drool over Richard Gere occupying all that space in my hard disc. Here I come, Pretty Woman!
