I’ve been really busy this month between my birthday, arranging summer activities and finishing a few projects. Obviously, the highlight of June has been my birthday but the down side to turning 37 is I’m still single! At 37 most people have a good sense of self and know what they want in a spouse. But why are there so many single men and women. Is there a lack of good men and women or is it because we’re dating the wrong type of person?
When you’re single people tend to offer their advice to try and make sense of why you’re single. The most common things I’ve heard are “it’s not your time,” understandable… “two is better than one” agreed… and “everyone needs somebody” ok simple enough…lets move on! I’m ready to be married and I enjoy my own company. I’m naturally a busy body and because of that people think that I’m too busy to date. I make time for what I want to make time for. Oh, and my least favorite is “you’ll meet someone when you lose weight” but not necessarily in that order. So, does size matter? I don’t accept this as truth. I think it’s important to be the best version of yourself for yourself!
It’s ok for someone to prefer a smaller leaner frame over my robust frame. I’m not offended that I’m not someone’s type! That would be ridiculous for me to be upset about something like that. I have preferences too which are probably border line and may be one of the reasons I’m still single 😊 The Media has great influence on how society views body image dating and relationships. Everyone wants to be someone they’re not. People are overly obsessed with body image. I’ll walk down my version of lover’s lane and you walk yours.
A few years ago, I took the Five Love Languages quiz. Which is designed to help you learn you and your partner’s love language. My top love language is Acts of service. I like being in relationships with people who like doing things for me. It can be as simple as taking out the trash without me having to ask. I found the quiz to be both entertaining and spot on. It perfectly summed up my love language. Not only does it help you learn things about yourself it helps with understanding some of your partner and children needs.
Until next time…
