    Still single but I'm not sure if I want to mingle yet because people are back to being nasty :s
    COVID restrictions lifted at the gym a few weeks ago, and people suddenly decided that it's OK to not wash hands after using the bathroom or wipe down equipment after use :|

    I feel like it needs to be a good week. Last week was pretty sucky.

    Currently reading 'single is your superpower' Very cheesy title, but the book itself has a good shift of perspective, which is needed sometimes.

    Ok, I'm not single so don't belong here. :( But I've often wondered why some people are very afraid of being single. Any comments on that? I feel if one has a fulfilling life, it can be a very empowering thing. Been married 43 yrs.(I think?) but was separated for 12 of them and I loved it. Coming from our own individual perspectives can make a world of difference, I guess.

    I love being single, only responsible for myself. I'm too independent, selfish and self-sufficient to be a good partner. That took me many years to understand. It would take a very special person to change my perspective at this point. I'm an old dog and I don't do tricks.

    I think it really depends on people's experiences as well as upbringing. Personally, I have both sides of the coin in my life. My father is from the Azorean islands and that side of the family is very strict and old school when it comes to a woman's role in life. Women are expected to find a husband and make many babies as soon as she legally becomes an adult. Once you've gotten past 21 without a husband, you start to become a black sheep.
    In addition, I find that people who come from big families keep that mentality moving forward with their own life, and they want that same thing for their own family.

    On the other hand, I am an only child, and I have always been comfortable living alone, vacationing alone and being single. I don't like the idea of settling just so that I don't have to be alone, however, when I look ahead and think of what my life will be like when I'm 60, I realize that if I'm still single, I will have very little family left. What will my holidays look like? What will old age look like since I will have no family looking out for me? I think that's probably the scariest part. Being alone when you're young and can take of yourself is easy. But when you're 80 with no kids, no nieces or nephews, no siblings, no parents.... it can be a frightening thought.

    I'm mostly okay being single. But I miss kisses and snuggles and other stuff that I can't do by myself
