Now I remember: the lonely nights, the weird men (and women) constantly hitting on me, no one to snuggle with and the fear that the next person I meet is going to be a psychopath, womanizer or worse yet, abusive and controlling forever after.
I hate being single. What I hate more is being a single parent.
You have to be so careful who you hang out with. Gone are the days of trying to get to know just anyone. Fear for your children takes first priority.
There is always the schmuck always hitting on you, always calling you sweetie or honey, trying to be a player because he thinks you are easy. There is always "Superman" who is so arrogant he thinks he is saving you from your "miserable life." There is the guy who plays nice to your face and then has five other women on the side. There is the guy who all he wants to do is play. Or maybe there is one who is all of the last three combined.
I just want to hurl. I hate being single.
Why can't there just be someone who likes to talk about life and drink cocoa? Why can't there just be someone who will go out on the town once in a while and introduce me to a few nice, unknown jewels?
I haven't even started dating (because the divorce isn't finalized and God knows I don't need anymore drama) and I am weary.
I hate being single.
However, it is definitely better than being someone's slave.
P.S. Freedom is awesome but what about freedom with someone who loves you? Can you feel me???
