I know what it's like to be single in your 30s—most of the time, it's pretty great. Sure, there will always be situations and occasions that seem to draw a lot of unwanted attention to the fact that you're currently unattached (weddings, holidays, cooking for one, and figuring out how to best answer the question, "So, why are you still single?"), but for the most part, I try not to let my relationship status get me down.
Do I want to meet that special someone? Absolutely. Would it be great if he could hurry up and get here already? You bet! Let's face it: We're all human. We all just want someone to love and someone to share in this messy, beautiful journey of life.
Because learning to be happily single isn't something that's often spoken about, it's up to us as individuals to school ourselves on our perception of what it really means to be single and to choose to see things differently.
