My Nana suggested to my Mom this week that I go join a writing group or go hiking to meet men.
I am starting to wonder if people think I am unfortunate because I am about to turn 30 and am single?? Especially when my Mom’s MOM feels I need help on the dating front.
Half the reason I avoid my family sometimes is because I don’t want to deal with the questions; Who are you dating? Is there anyone special in your life? and the statement; Don’t worry it will happen!
Ugh, I almost just vomited in my mouth.
I am fine until I start listening to other people. I still feel young and am not at a point where I would be ready to have a child BUT I am definitely ready to meet someone. Although I love men, I don’t walk around on a man hunt! I don’t go into the grocery store thinking “am I going to meet the one?”
I find the pressure to meet someone doesn’t come from me, it’s from society, friends and family. Most of my friends are still single and don’t have kids.
I get anxiety going into family situations though where I feel I have to explain myself. The fact of the matter is I DO want to meet someone, but the right someone. It’s not that I want to be “alone”, it just hasn’t happened yet.
These are the times I think most people settle, the times where you feel discouraged because it has not happened and everyone is starting to notice.
Let me put it this way, those that do settle in these situations will be getting divorced when I finally find the RIGHT one and get married.
There is nothing wrong with being single at almost 30, I know who I am and what I want 10 times more than I even did 5 years ago. Now is the perfect time to meet my life partner.
