Rough week...

I think the hardest part about being single, is not being anyone's most important person. Not having that one person who is there for you no matter what. Who you can call in the middle of a tough day at work, or in the middle of a scary episode of criminal minds, or when you don't quite know where you are, and are trying to find a meeting.

Not having that one person who is there for you. Who calls in the middle of the afternoon to see if you want to have pancakes for supper. Or if you want to stay home on Friday and watch Dexter, instead of going to that house party that you were invited to, by the people who you don't really like.

I think that is the hardest part of being single.

Since my LSAT studying is complete, and I am almost finished applying to law schools, my life is becoming clearer. I don't have anything to focus on, and am starting to realize what my life really looks like right now.

And it is starting to feel a bit empty. A bit lonely.

I am leaving to go on vacation this morning, I am going out west to visit my sister for a week. I am excited to get away, and take some time off from work. It will be nice to get away from my life right now, and spend some time with family.

Hopefully this feeling that I have been having this week will subside.

Do you miss having that one person? Cheer me up, what do you love about being single?


  1. You have been feeling the negative side of being single, which is how I feel as well just now.

    It is a difficult feeling but I know that it does subside.

    For me, it's when I'm enjoying the small and big things in my life, plus a little bit of excitement for the possibilites to come.

    Some of my married friends say, this is it for
    them, my life could change at any moment. Of course we make out own changes, but I know what they mean. You and I are going to have a first kiss again, hopefully fall in love and all that brings. Think about that and being single is exciting.

    Gosh, saying that to you has just made me feel better. I hope you do to :)

  2. Sweetie, married people sometimes wish that they were single again, think about that. From my point of view you are very lucky girl. You have the chance to meet somebody and live everything from the beginning. The love, the excitement, the very first kiss. Things happen for a reason. Enjoy it while it lasts.

  3. I agree, it can be hard not to have that one person who is there for you and only you. But, I'd rather have the right person in that role than just any person, I think. You need to find a single friend and you can be that person for eachother :)

    And for things that are good about being single, did you see this post of mine from a while back? These are my favorite things!

  4. Nat, Thanks for the support, as always!

    ladystou, Thank you. I think I really needed to hear that.
