I will survive.

I had someone at work tell me that I needed to date someone who reads books. (Not the first time this has happened.)

I then had someone text me a picture of a wedding cake, and ask me what kind of cake I wanted at my wedding.

I don’t know what’s out there in the universe, but something’s up. I really don’t want to be bogged down with suggestions about my single-dom and how to fix it. I’m not sure anything needs to be fixed.

I’m not going to say that I don’t miss being in a relationship (some women, newly empowered with their “OH MY GOD I CAN SURVIVE LIKE THIS!” attitudes, will always say that). I haven’t been in a relationship for three years. I am just starting to believe I can date, but even that feels a bit weird (all of my relationships were long-term. All of my relationships were men who were friends before they were boyfriends. To go on a Carly Rae Jepsen “Hey I just met you…” sort of date? SCARY). Society says that dating means a series of montages in which you go out to dinner a lot, or you go dancing, or you get drunk and fuck.

…I’m not sure how I feel about that, either.

Anyway, I’m sure I’ll find myself in a relationship, eventually. I’m sure that when the powers that be deem me ready, they’ll practically throw Channing Tatum (or someone similar) in my lap.

    People can get unnecessarily weird about pressuring single people to date. Hang in there. I like your attitude about it…I share your sentiment that you’ll be OK.
