- You get the people that don't get it - they treat single like it's a disease and they can't understand why you have chosen it. Because being single is all up to me and there is no other party to consider. "Why are you still single?"
- You get the ones who think single-hood is the best place to be ever, and often they make comments about how they wish they too were still single. "Never get married."
- You also get those who are determined to say the ultra-cliche, super unhelpful things like "You'll find the right one when you least expect it." "When you stop looking, that's when HE will find you." Or my favorite "God is your husband. You're so lucky."
I never know how to act, you know, as a single gal. I'm young - twenty-three - and I know I have plenty of time blah, blah, blah, but the world has so many standards. It's hard to figure out how to be a lady in 2013 (or 2014, 2015....etc).
Society tells us to sleep around - try different things on. Experiment. That isn't my style. It's NOT my style. I can't even express how that is not me. I won't/can't/refuse to do that. It's not in my beliefs, my moral system, or my idea of fun. (Also, side note - women that DO sleep around as society expects are often called sluts after following the rules. Women who don't are called prudes.)
