Not gonna lie to you. Being single sucks, in some ways. Some of the time.
(I have been “coupled,” as it were, & for many years, in the past. So I am entirely aware of what I am missing out on. Also, what I am not missing… :) )
& maybe, say, I get feeling a bit lonely sometime (happens to the best of us, no?)
& then, I go out to a restaurant
& I see (& overhear) some of the people some of the people there are stuck with
& I think
There really are much, much worse things than being single.
& wind up feeling very grateful indeed for my wee, dear, imperfect but very-very rich life.
p.s. hilarious Anne Lamott item about trying out the dating scene.
