Today's Blogging Challenge: Your response to everyone's favorite question, "And why are YOU still single?"
I freaking hate this question.
Unfortunately, I get the question in two contexts. I occasionally get it from new acquaintances. Apparently, I meet a lot of people who either lack filters, or were raised by wolves.
I also get this question from men on dating sites, who (I think) think it's a compliment.
My response is the same for every situation: I'm single because I choose to be.
Let me clarify...
I do not necessarily want to be single. I'd like to be in a relationship. Or at least find someone with whom I could go on more than one date.
Still, I maintain I am single by choice because I could be in a relationship. I'm sure if I wanted, I could have finagled a relationship out of one of the guys I've dated in the last year who were interested.
But through all my ups and downs, confusion, and missteps, I know I haven't found the right guy. I have (for better or worse) avoided actually getting into a relationship with anyone.
So I remain single.
