Hello!

So I’ve been single for nearly for years. Single mum
of 2 now and happy to be so!
But it infuriates me on the constant questioning I get –
well why haven’t you got a boyfriend? Your not getting any younger you know!
Why don’t you go on a dating website? Try speed dating.

NO!!
It’s like people think its a choice I’ve made on purpose – to stay single. It’s not! It just hasn’t happened yet, and I am fine with that!! For the first time in my life, I only have to worry about me (aside form my munchkins of course) and that’s actually a fantastic feeling!
Stop bothering me!!

  • I LOVE being single! Granted my past relationships were terrible, abusive, etc etc. but I feel minimal stress now compared to then. Just worrying about my kids and myself and being able to freely be myself is worth more than having a partner who’s less than ideal.

  • Maybe they are in relationships, know how good they are and wish fir you to experience it. I agree tho, some people try too hard. Once you’re in a relationship, the others start. When are you getting engaged, married, having babies, buying a house etc etc etc

  • How frustrating indeed! Glad you have the conviction to stick to your guns and live out life to how you see fit for yourself and your kiddies and you are absolutely right it will happen when it happens. Hope everyone backs off and gives you some breathing space with this subject, I’m sure if there were aspects of their lives that you drilled them over they’d get upset twice as fast!


    • Only just saw the date of your post :/ Hope its all worked out for you since then :)

  • I agree and your kids are better off with a stable parent rather then a string of others coming and going from their lives seemingly abruptly

  • Applauding you – very well said.

  • I think they are only wanting you to be happy & thats why they’re asking.

  • I think it’s that thing where you want people to be happy, but can only imagine happiness on YOUR terms. Most of them probably mean well.
