The Joy of Singlehood

When a girl reached 30+++ and still single, there is a greater chance that she ends up living alone, unmarried and successful but maybe, not quite happy.

I am not yet 30 (will be in a COUPLE of yearssss) but just thinking about it (30++, single, unattached and hopefully rich) scares the hell out of me LOL. I just have this feeling that when you’re nearly crossing the finish line, you’re bound to  be single for the rest of your life, I am not generalizing of course, esp. now that many career women prefer to marry  in their 30s, but survey showed that very few male respondents felt okay to marry a 30-year-old. Alright, I sounded really desperate saying that hahaha.

Seriously, my dream of becoming the perfect bride, wearing the perfect bridal gown, bridal jewelry and bridal shoes from is yet to come because I am still enjoying my singlehood. Instead of romancing another person, I’m happy spending my life romancing life for all its worth.

I know it’s kinda pathetic, but being single means I don’t have to keep stalking YOU in Friendster. I love it that I can go out anytime I want, whenever I want. I love it that I don’t have to suffer from the annoyances of having a partner who keeps on asking my whereabouts. I am not pressured on being in my best and sweetest self all the time. I don’t have to worry if my nails aren’t polished, if my hair is frizzy, if I eat a lot or eat less, if I partied through the wee hours of the morning (which I don’t do), if I don’t textback or callback, if I roll on the floor laughing out loud, if I speak in chenes-tongues,  if I walk the streets of Carriedo/Quiapo/Divisoria for hours etc. Plus, I’m saving myself from insecurities, heartaches, headaches and the green-eyed-monster. FREEDOM IT IS!! I’m single and I’m fine, thank you for asking.

Don’t get me wrong here. I do not detest happy couples. And if you’re in a bllisfull relationship, I wouldn’t want you to get out from it. I’m getting there sooner or later but for now,  I’m quite happy that I can do MOORREE by just embracing my singleness, like:

1. I can stay in front of the computer for straight 15 hours

2. I can do DVD marathon for straight 12 hours (CSI Seasons 1-5, Prison Break 1-2, Ugly Betty, Kyle XY, korean flicks, Meteor Garden, Hwang Jini, Jang Geum, Smallville, Grey’s, OTH)

3. I can stay awake the whole night just blogging, youtubing and partly chatting

4. I can watch 5 movies (straight) during rest day

5. I can stay at home couched at the sofa for hours doing nothing

6. I can read books from cover to cover several times, to the point of memorizing the lines

7. I can survive without using cellphone, landline but spare my DSL connection, ok.

8. I can spend many many hours with my gurlfriends eating out, watching movies and talking loud at each other

9. I can go somewhere else without ever worrying if YOU have eaten your breakfast, lunch and dinner

10. I don’t feel crying over petty things

Plus many many other things. Yah know, it’s great to be single. Boring? Am I missing anything? Nope. I’d say, I’m living my BEST LIFE NOW whether YOU believe it or not.
