Saw this last night and it really echoed with me. I am genuinely having the best time finding new pals and new experiences that I would never have sought out if I was coupled up (shout out @braveburds for their part in my random activities).
Most of my first year of being single, well meaning questions from friends/family about how I was spending my time, who I would go on holiday with now I was "alone", "you'll find the right man soon" and all the other stuff that was meant as supportive was actually patronising and demoralising as hell! .
So I'm ridiculously glad I decided to just say fuck it to the "norm" and just do what I wanted, even if it was uncomfortable at first doing them solo (Roll on Japan 2019)
Being single is not a death sentence and not to be pitied...it's liberating asfk! Even if it does mean borrowing a pal's puppy for the occasional cuddle when needed haha.
I share a lot of the online dating shit on my stories because I find them mostly hilarious and want to share the ridiculousness with people, and the number of folk DMing me to react or comment on them shows it's not just me being easily offended lol. I am not desperate to be wifed up because I'd need to stop being selfish and thinking just about only my happiness....,having said all that, I do miss a nice coorie in on the couch of a weekend and am open to meeting a non-arse hole 😂
