Ok so rather than dwell on my rapidly loosing faith in the males of our species (so not fair cause I know for every creep out there there has to be at least one good guy), or whinge and moan about being single (wich I have no reason to do its only been a few months)
I thought I would ask all the women here who are single (or even if your not) how you manage to survive in singlesville?
what are your tips, hints and tricks to getting through life as a single woman?
and for dealing with the creeps in life??
I am all for learning some new things and thought we could create a survival guide of sorts to help us navigate the shark infested waters of singledom
Here's my take, albeit from the dark side.
Men will never be interested in the person before the body. If the body is not inviting (meaning not dressed to kill, so to speak) they won't be curious. There's the obvious flaunt it if ii got it idea, and there's the be modest and get nothing one. If you choose to flaunt it, be appropriate to the place or event. In other words, it may be tempting to wear our overly flattering concert gear to a first date, but that may not work out if the date isn't to a concert. Should you choose to be modest and not wear tight things or show skin...well, let's all hope you're good enough looking to compensate.
As far as surviving singlehood goes...all I can say is life goes on. I have been for entirely too long and there is no end in sight. It is easier to stop looking, or pretend to let fate or destiny do the work. I just accept it. I mean, of coarse I'll go out if I'm asked. I'm not actively seeking a companion anymore. Too many dead ends, wasted evenings and deleted phone numbers.
I also feel that getting married has become a social thing. It used to be necessity back in the days of women not working outside the home and raising the kids. Our parents, many of whom were stay at home boomers, took it upon themselves to beat independance into our heads. So now we all live as individuals even after we get married. I guess what I'm saying is this generation was raised to be single. The more time one spends in the dating pool the more obvious it becomes. I don't think the majority of men are assholes, but I do think thy are picky. And they can be--just was we don't need men in our lives, they don't need women, either. With that in mind, I say again: for the most part, dating is a waste.
That's my rant. I hope it made sense to someone.
