Being in your 40’s as I am and single it’s not always easy to find a man. The one man that absolutely is the one you want to spend time with all the time, seems harder to find as we age. Are our standards getting higher as we get older, or are our choices getting slimmer? So many times, I get asked how come I don’t have a man in my life now. My reply is “Why do I really need one in my life right now?”
Seriously, where is written that men and women need a significant other to complete them? I know people who absolutely have to have that someone in their life because whether they choose to believe it or not the reason they need that other person is because they are afraid to be alone. I, on the other hand am not afraid to be alone. Do I want to die alone? I really don’t care, when it’s my time…I’ll go and I see who I need to see and I can be with who ever I want- whenever I want for as long as I want. to me, that has a much bigger security blanket than being in a relationship that could possibly fail, which statistically they all do.
Do I sound like a scorned woman? Perhaps I am, but you know what? I‘ve earned to feel this way because at least I know I still have a heart. That’s more than I can say for most people who end relationships and never look back on the life they once choose with someone they “loved”. Is it okay to be manless mostly in Toledo? Sure, it’s okay to be anything you want anywhere you want, as along as you’re happy. So, if I’m manless in Toledo, doesn’t mean I’ll be manless anywhere else, it’s just right now…I don’t need that significant other to complete me. The only thing that needs to be completed is this story…
Until Next Time,
