I am the single fish in my sea...


I honestly don't know if I'm ever going to find somebody again. I'm jaded and tired and just plain blah. I've determined I'm allergic to relationships. My friends (all married btw-they should just SHOVE IT) all say I'm a serial dater. Well, what is wrong with being picky? Am I supposed to just stay with anybody so I can be part of the couples clique? Uh-uh. Not going to happened. I did that before and all I got for my trouble was a divorce.

I feel empowered now. I am doing what i want to do, on my own time. My married friends are starting to be a bit jealous. They don't have that freedom and all I can say is haha! being alone isn't so bad. Its liberating, eye-opening stuff. I'm finally happy being me and to hell with all those who think I need a man to be special.
