The World of Singles

It is bad enough if you are lonely, but for me, that is farthest from the truth. I am not lonely. In fact, people annoy me. I am losing faith in our species. It does not make me cynical in demeanor, however, I actually find it to be a form of entertainment. I do not want anyone, what I want is to be left alone.

Couples make it difficult for me to live life without expressing this anymore. Before, it was a well-known fact just to myself. Now, I am forced to be painfully honest with humanity: I cannot even take myself seriously, so do not be mistaken in thinking I have high hopes for you.

It astounds me what people do the minute they get a partner--
They make singles' lives a living hell.

For example: I have a few friends who have entered the world of college and already have a steady boyfriend or girlfriend. Because of this, those aforementioned friends have morphed into the following:
1. Honeymoon Talkers -- the kinds of people who say they are far from being in love but always talk about their partner as if they literally know no other people.
2. Matchmakers -- Ah, my favorites... The I-have-someone-now-so-I'm-going-to-hook-up-all-my-friends-so-they're-as-happy-as-me people. (And most of these people suck at matchmaking or they're current hook-up was just pure luck so they really do not have the knowledge or skill to match their friends on the "eHarmony" level people have grown to acknowledge.) You all disgust me even worse than the Honeymoon Talkers. I can tune out that until something more relevant to talk about arises. I cannot tune you out, though. You are not just talkers, you are doers.

I am not saying I am never attracted to anyone. This is not true. I am not even a picky/shallow person. I have found myself attracted to several people over the years--even some people I probably should not have been. (I am sure we can all sympathize with that.) But people who worry too much on being with someone or who they are with lose what they have and who they are in the process... I am not going to be that person. Not to mention, I am just not looking for a relationship right now.

If some guy, right now, came up to me and kissed me and said, "I want to be with you," well now, who could turn that down? But I do not see it in my future--truth be told, most guys hate redheads--and I do not care if it is ever in my future. If I like someone, and it is appropriate, I tell that person eventually. I do not want my friends to hook me up. I do not want to hear about their partners all the time. I just want to hangout with you, not hangout with you and your partner in spirit. I just want to be alone until I find the right person for me.

I am not settling. And I am not even going to technically "look" for someone until I am out of this mindset. Which I do not think will happen anytime soon...

I am single and happy, okay? Get off my back!
