Oh I can hear the thoughts now, the compassion- cheer up Bobby, you'll find someone one day. There's someone out there just right for you. Everyone has a soul-mate Bobby, even you. Well thank you for the kind words and encouragement, but I had something different in mind when I said, "Being single really sucks!"
Being single really sucks, at least sometimes, because of the things singles have to deal with. Let me give you a few examples:
When you are perfectly content to be single, yet have everyone under the sun wondering why?
You tell people that you choose to be single and they wonder why. Is something wrong with you?
Singles don't get the same benefits, as say married couples ie: tax breaks.
Single people seem to loose life long friendships because, well, we may not fit in to our friends married lifestyle anymore like we use to.
The list goes on and on, but as I'm more of a relationship blogger (yeah, I know, being single is a relationship-with oneself), I'll steer you good folks to a few fantastic blogs that deal with this age old (problem?) of being single in a world full of couples.
Singletude is actually the singles blog that got me thinking about the world singles have to live in.
Onely don't you just love the name? This blog has two ladies that tag team the issues of being single.
Singlewomanrule is a collective of woman joining together to deal with issues that affect single woman.
Singlutionary is run by a lady with some very interesting, and humorous, perspectives on singles.
There are more links to some other good single blogs and sites on my side bar (go give a peek).
p.s. the McLinky you see here is a way for like minded bloggers to link together. I think it's a great idea :)
