I just remembered a (male) friend say to me a few months ago that he wasn’t into relationships (he had been married for many years now divorced). I just thought (as most people would, Im sure even most people reading this) that he hadn’t found the right person or was somehow at fault himself.
I didn’t think that soon I would have more insight and understanding into what he said, and realise what he was talking about – of being single as a way of life, not anticipating & assuming an inevitable coupling off. Of being OK, happy with this life.
I kind of think of these as the old and new paradigms – theres those that know and understand the new paradigm – a life which doesnt assume and work towards ultimate ‘coupledom’ (plus kids most likely).
And, well, then theres those that dont.Follow @singlefemaleblg
