So, this is not an in-depth observation about my love life, cause I won’t ever do that on here. But, it is a musing about the interest my love life gets from my married friends.
I was yapping with my friend over the weekend and she was telling me how, once again, our friend and her sister were bugging her about her love life, or lack thereof. I got the same dig when I saw her a few weeks before. I don’t know what it is with married friends or friends in relationships who keep bugging my single friends and I about our status. They can’t fathom that we’re happy with the way things are. My life is not defined by a relationship. If I found a great guy, then awesome. But, honestly, I think there’s only been one guy – maybe two – I’ve met in the past year or more who’s piqued my interest and put a smile on my face. I’m not picky, I just won’t settle. Would you?
I think the nagging is coming on stronger now because one of the single friends has just started a relationship with a great guy so now the attention is on us (although the poor girl is now getting the third degree about a wedding – will the nagging never end?!!). I would never think to bother someone about their relationship status. If they start the conversation, then fine. Maybe its just me, I’m not someone who probes my friends about their relationships because I think its no ones business but your own how the love life is going. And, I think it’s rather rude to make someone feel bad that they’re not in a relationship or that they need to be in a relationship for their life to have meaning. You can be happy and be single. Its possible. I’m living proof.
And, thankfully, I don’t have parents who bother me about my love life. If he’s important enough, they’ll know and they know that. For now, I’m just enjoying my life and avoiding the busy bodies. 😉
