Reason #521 Why I’m Not Married
Well, it’s all part of the Plan B my life has taken. I never thought, as a young twenty-something, that I’d reach nearly 40 and be single. I never knew I’d have so much trouble finding a suitable partner.
But, here I am.
And because I’m a make-lemonade-out-of-lemons gal, after many years of flopped relationships and dreadful failures (which I am sure will be the subject of many-a-post), I turned to travel.
It’s not strictly a reason why I’m single per se, but more the result of it, I guess. But, it also leads to my point that I have been unwilling to settle.
I’ve watched my friends settle and divorce– or worse: stay in a miserable marriage. My life is too short with too much living to do, and marriage is hard enough with the right man; settling is not an option.
So, my unwillingness to settle–which I’m sure I’ll revisit–and its subsequent result: travelling is reason # 521 Why I’m not married.
