Being Single Is Not Easy

People are always bemoaning how bad they have it being married. The “ol’ ball and chain” as men call their wives. They are always complaining about how stressful it is coming home to the same woman night after night. They complain about how it’s extremely hard to stay faithful because it’s in their DNA to cheat. Women complain about how their men are never home or they cheat.

Well I’m here to tell you that being single is not all a bed of roses either my friend. We single folks have to deal with lying men that tell you they will call when they don’t. They tell you they love you just to get in your pants then drop you like a hot potato. They are married but tell you they are not. There are women that are total and complete skanks and will try to pin a baby on you when they know it’s not yours. Seen an episode of Maury lately? What about all the women that are gold diggers?

Add to the mix that we women go out with our girlfriends to a club and have to contend with some looser inevitably try and talk to us all in our personal space as if he had a secret to tell and his breath smells like week old scotch and beer combined. YUCK! Then he gets so drunk that he can’t stand up straight and falls all over you spilling your Shirley Temple all over your brand new green dress. This, my friends, happened to me this weekend and it was not pretty

Yea, we definately need to hang out!

Sounds like we attack the same men.

~nOe~ said...

on days like today... i'd like that drink spilled on my pretty dress.
:(

Melissa said...

I hear ya! I also can't stand it when married people tell me, "Oh, you'll find someone when you least expect it." Well, it must be when I'm going to be dead because so far, nothing and I mean to tell you nothing has happened when I've least expected it!

Personally, if I had a man who was my best friend, who I loved and they loved me, I don't really think I would be complaining about much of anything.

Season said...

I thought after my divorce that I would love being single. Yeah, not so much.

kay said...

ugh. it does suck being single. sorry that happened to you. i've had some whack moments too. will never forget the night some random drunk old guy put his hands between my legs. i almost burst into tears. people are nuts.

Queen-Size funny bone said...

Thats why there are so many Lesbians in the world. lol

Renaissance Woman said...

Amen... Being single is not all that perfect.

Karen said...

I think your first mistake was drinking a Shirley Temple. I could probably relate to the story if you were drinking a glass of red wine or something. ;-)

Nonya Bidness said...

No one's life or situation is perfect. Would my marriage be better if I didn't have in-laws. Hell yes! Would I trade the companionship of a man who loves me and I am completely comfortable with to not have them judging me. No.

I would not want to be single again for all the red wine in Australia. I would also not want to be saddled with some of the douche-nozzles my friends are stuck with. Double edged sword, my friend. The grass is always greener on the other side. And all that other nonsense.

StarrBURST! said...

Girl if no one feels you, I FEEL YA!! I agree with Melissa on couples or married folks saying that same ol' "Your mate is going to come along one day soon. Just u wait and see." STFU and eat glass is what I want to say back. Since when did couples write the book on how to be single? It's not as fun and carefree as ppl make it out to be! I'd give up this singlehood with the quickness for something REAL!

LiLu said...

Really? I, for one, definitely admit being in a relationship is easier...

After all, I haven't taken the garbage out in a year. ;-)

Hannah said...

That sucks that that loser fell all over you. A friend of mine told me that once a guy literally tried to jump on her while she was walking through a bar. Luckily, her guy friends prevented that idiot from hurting her.

Guys-If you're looking to pick up women, don't get so drunk that you pounce on people or fall over yourself. Have some self respect please! LOL

SMILF said...

I hate asshole guys when being single. I think marriage is way better and easier than being single...I have friends who disagree and sound like the ones you speak of, but I must have just gotten lucky!
Oh drunk people spilling drinks on clothing is just NOT cool. It makes me want to bust out a can of whoop ass.

FB @ FabulouslyBroke.com said...

Oh i'm sorry that happened to you :( guys are such jerks when you're single.. all the good ones are gone.

For me, the worst thing about being single, is not being hugged or cuddled on command. LOL

I seriously say: "CUDDLES!!!" and BF has to cuddle me, or face my wrath.

It's the best thing ever, and what I'd miss the most if boyfriendless.

Sandi McBride said...

Okay, and you really want me to believe you were drinking a Shirley Temple, right? Temple of Doom more like!
Silly girl!
Sandi

lisaq said...

Amen girl! My married friends and even friends in relationships are always telling me that they live vicariously through me. Please people! If you were really listening to what I'm saying, you'd value what you have. The grass is not always greener...

Nelia said...

Lilu : Re garbage. Amen!

Diva : Girl you KNOW you could get married anytime you WANTED to get married. There's plenty of fellas that would love to give you that ring. So I'm not buying it. I don't think the issue is marriage v. single. But finding Mr. Right v. single.

Ms Wensday Mourning said...

Life in itself isn't easy my friend. Whether one is married/single, male/female, gay/straight it just becomes more complicated as we get older...that all.
Cheers,
Wensday

Freckle Face Girl said...

Thanks for the soon to be divorced pep talk! :) Oh, I remember those days. I think I'll just stay single & celibate.

Liam said...

Sorry to hear about your green dress. I am definitely not perfect but I can vouch for some of us men out there. I can tell you with all honesty that there are men who care and know how to treat a woman. Keep your chin up. You will meet one.

B said...

Amen! Not to mention we're always asked why are we single, what about kids, do you even want to get married...and the list goes on and on!

The Ambiguous Blob said...

Here here. I like having a boyfriend. Now I just need the right fellow to be mine :)

Tanyetta said...

YOU'RE RIGHT!

The grass always seems greener on the other side.

Everyone should be happy with where they are in life and if they're not, make that chaaaaaaaange :)
