Every person has at least one friend who has had more boyfriends and girlfriends than the amount of times you change your underwear in a week. It is bad when even I can’t keep up with every guy or girl you have dated in your life. I have a pretty good memory too. Are these people so afraid of being alone that they would rather be with all the wrong people? Or are these people just doing it for the fun and the perks of it?
I have had a total of five serious boyfriends in my life and I am 32 years old. I have dated and hung out with other guys throughout my walk in life. They did not get the label like the clothes that hang in my closet. I have not always had thee greatest taste in men. Out of the five boyfriends, I am only on friend terms with two of them. The other three could get hit by a car and not phase me. I am sure that sounds horrid, but they are a part of some reasons why I am guarded when it comes to my heart. The other reasons would be seeing other relationships and marriages. Those ones make me feel grateful for being single. I would rather be single and happy than with someone and miserable. I do not want to be the schmuck ever again. The schmuck who has their significant other cheating on them.
I am grateful that I am able to stand on my own two feet and say I am happy. It is an amazing feeling to say that and be sincere in meaning it. I have three jobs. I also have a fun hobby of writing. I just purchased my first home. It feels incredible to have all of that and know I am the one responsible for it and my happiness in life. I did not need a man to make any of those things possible for me. There are not many people who can stand on their own two feet and be happy with just themselves. It helps you get to know yourself better. It also helps you realize you do not “need” someone in your life to feel complete. You have to know how to love yourself and feel complete in life before you can find someone to “compliment” you.
One thought on “Alone and Happy”
Agree 100%. There is no “soul mate.” You don’t need anybody. You are in this life once, so be happy. If you find someone you want to “share” your life’s adventure with..then grab them. There is no “better half” and all the other cliched bullshit. Well said.
