Still Single

Seven years now and I am still single. It’s Christmas time and the Hallmark Channel is playing movie after movie of finding true love at Christmas.

What if you don’t want it? Don’t need it.

What if you are perfectly content not being in a relationship? No, I am not spending time working on myself. Yes, I want to lose some weight-doesn’t everyone, but that is not why I am not dating. I just haven’t found anyone that has sparked my interest and being a parent comes first for me. Don’t get me wrong, I am not going to grow old and become the cat lady, but I am just happy being single right now.

I don’t think there is anything wrong with me. But you tell me.

I think I am a good parent.  My kids come first. Men will come and go, but my kids will always be my kids. My two grown children are funny, intelligent, independent men and my 12 year old speaks her mind appropriately and is becoming a strong independent young woman. I must be doing something right. Right?

I am attractive even though I have put on some weight. I am no longer the size 5 I was for years, but I am much happier now. Now it’s about being in the best health I can be, not losing weight

I am funny or so people tell me.

They miss me at work if I am sick or take a day off, or so people tell me. I have been at the same place of employment for 20 years so I would say I can make a commitment and I have a good work ethic.

I am positive, or I try to be, but I admit I have tried hard to get drama out of my life. Crisis, Men, more Crisis.

Maybe some people are just meant to be alone. I said alone, not lonely. I have been on my own since I was a small child. My mom died in a car accident with me at the young age of 3 and my father who was 20 years older than my mom wasn’t really sure what to do with me and my younger sister, but he did the best he could.

I guess I was raised to be independent and alone. Is that a bad thing by a single dad? I don’t think so.

I like to learn and I’m just about to finish my degree so maybe I will find I have time on my hands and will want to be in a relationship, but I doubt it.

Ok, honestly, I find most people to be too needy. Buck up we don’t need to be together all the time, do we? Hey, don’t get me wrong, I’m a hopeless romantic. You know the saying “It is hopeless that I will ever be romantic.” Just kidding.

I love watching movies where the guy and girl fall in love and live happily ever after, but does that really happen in today’s society? Everyone seems to have hidden agendas. I love getting flowers and snuggling every once in a while but it doesn’t seem to be a priority to me like I see it in my girlfriends.

I think that I have been independent for so long that I like the things I like and don’t want to have to entertain anyone else except my kids. Besides the three of them are so funny that they entertain me.

By the way I have a dog not a cat at the moment, so I think I am safe.

I am a single parent of three wonderful children. Two boys who are grown and live out on their own and a teenage daughter at home. I have gone through a lot of drama with divorce and sickness- just to start, but have found my way out of the shadows and I am ready to motivate and empower women with what I have learned. Being unqualified is exactly what makes me qualified. I work full time in the corporate world, I'm a parent, and I resell products on several different online platforms. Last, but the most important, I am a Christ follower at Church By The Glades.
