Well, it's not even 9:15 a.m., and already I have been invited to dinner 3 times to be 3 couple's 3rd wheel! Like what gives? If this is such an important and intimate day then what the heck would they want to drag me along for? LOL, I can't seem to make people understand that I love being in my own space, alone, and I actually enjoy it! Yes I do! There is a huge difference between being lonely and being alone. Trust me I have been both at different times in my life!
I've had lots of men in my life, bless them! I was even married four times, yes four! So you see I do like them, I just don't care to have one. You would think they'd understand that the way I live now is a "life choice," not a punishment?
I do not now or ever had the need for anyone to complete me, buy me chocolates once a year, or be nice every so often, as I can do that for myself every single day, and do.
Life is about choices, and I sure wish people would respect mine! I don't need to meet a man you know, have dinner, or be felt sorry for. There! I thank you so much for your ear. I exit now stage right, feeling just so much better.
I think I will wait until tomorrow and get myself a box (or two) of those great chocolates on sale, then quote Forrest Gump in the back of my mind while eating each and every one of them. Another perc of living alone, you get ALL the good chocolates.
Now all you lovers, please enjoy your day, and make it an intimate thing between two as Cupid intended it to be, wontca?
