Whether you're solitary by choice or simply unlucky in love, being single is complicated.
Marriage Is NOT the Solution
You haven't lived if you've never heard the saying, "all that glitters is not gold." But have you heard the other portion that it could be something ugly covered in brass. That's what dating or even marrying a man with issues is like. Sure, on the outside they seem charming, responsible, respectful. They are everything you've ever dreamed of but one day they fall from the pedestal and you are surprised to find an ugly, fractured trophy covered in brass.
From Family to Far from It
It's one of those days where again I sit alone on that special day that everyone loves so much, accept for me! You guessed it, It's Valentine's Day! Blah! I used to really look forward to Valentine's Day a long time ago when I believed in "love." But now that I'm much older it's even worse. I get so angry then so sad, and then angry again, and sad.
Wanted: My Boo Thang, My Love
What do the lonely, and not hooked up do? The assault – rude. The overbearing demand on my money – rude. Nothing cute about a fat baby shooting arrows at people. Shoot something this way partner and watch what happens. Okay, I may be bitter! Nothing cute about some fuzzy red or pink animal with some plastic flowers and bow stapled to it. Animal cruelty. That’s what that is. Except for the year my baby saved his allowance to buy me one. That was the cutest bear EVER.
Girls Better Than Me
I was walking from St. Jean Pied de Port, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, and nine days into the six week pilgrimage, it happened.
Why I Stopped Crying on Valentine's Day
Well, let's get to it. I have been single on Valentine's day since forever. Being single for a long time has made me think so many negative thoughts. I used to think to myself, "Am I not pretty enough?"
I Never Knew...
...I would feel this way about someone who could annoy me so much and who could be so sweet to every damn girl. I didn't realize that I was falling for you until one of my friends made me realize that the feelings were there... That what I thought was fake and unreal was actually true... It kind of hurts that I have to pretend every day now that I don't feel anything for you because when you found out you just left me... You treated me differently, you ignored me, you stopped caring about me, and you stopped talking to me...
Valentine's Day for Single People
Everyone knows that Valentine's Day is the day where couples go all lovey dovey and make it painfully obvious for the rest of us single people that we're alone. So in light of that, here's a list of things for an awesome Valentines day for that forever alone person.
Thoughts on Women: Journal 1-18-18
Women are awesome. Awesome in the true sense of the word’s definition. They leave me awestruck at the things they do, overcome and think about. From what I have observed about women (I am a man so I could just be talking out of my ass) they have a sense of equality amongst themselves. It takes both a man’s and a woman’s genetics and sexual reproductive organs to make a child, BUT women literally harbor life inside of them. They are one with their child, nourishing them until the day comes when their child enters into the world. On this day women go through unimaginable, excruciating pain, some even lose their lives; but they give life to a beautiful kids who are full of promise and potential to be good...
It Was Just Another Monday in August
To most people, it was just another hot and humid Monday in August. To me, it was my 22nd birthday. I had the day off from work, I was feelin' good about what I was seeing in the mirror, and I had some extra cash. So, like any devoted coffee lover (addict?), I made the decision to grab my favorite book and spend the morning in my favorite local coffee shop.
10 Things To Do On Valentine's Day If You're Single
Hello, fellow single individual! Are you aware of the upcoming "holiday" approaching oh so slowly? No? Then you're pretty good at ignoring the heart-shaped balloons, dozens and dozens of boxes of chocolate, and "Roses on sale" signs in every corner in every area in every city. But, yes, Valentine's Day is just around the corner and every time someone mentions the holiday, you can hear a groan somewhere far away in the distance by a single person. It's quite clear why single people are in utter disgust by the holiday filled with love and joy—they don't have a significant other to share it with.
Here's What You Should Do on Valentine's Day If You Are Single
Yes yes, we know, Valentine's Day sucks when you're single. You succumb to the scrutiny of your mother every year around this time about grandchildren and when she is going to get any. The glowing reality of red hearts and pink roses are everywhere, reminding you that you're still, after a number of failed attempts at love, very, very single. Or perhaps it was a choice—then by all means! But it doesn't mean that Valentine's Day will be any less frustrating.
26 and Still Up in the Dating Life Mix…Wait, How Do I Date?
Okay okay, I know I'm not the only one. You get on Instagram and five pictures in, I lied, maybe two, someone out there just got engaged! And in the back of your mind, it's always the one person you least expected. Then you're like damn, when am I ever gonna get engaged or married? Onto the next social media of Snapchat because you just realized after scrolling after so many photos on Instagram you realize you started to compare your life and demean yourself for a moment (while also being jealous of everyone's travel pics). Snapchat is cool and all, but it tends to be the same stuff. Someone is out eating, someone is at the gym, someone out there is taking selfies or on some random adventure. But then oh wait, there it is, your friends are out somewhere and you just felt like you weren't invited. The loneliness feeling continues to build. After two hours of scrolling, your eyes are tired and the feeling of missing out and being utterly alone just resides internally. Ahhh, the single life. The life where it is fun because you don't have to tell anyone where you are but sometimes it just feels like there is a void. Maybe it's because ever since we were young the thought of having to be with a significant other was ingrained in our minds.
