So what I really want to know is when exactly are you meant to be thinking am I ever going to find Love?
I ask because I am a 20 something female, single, living on my own, never been in a long term relationship and find myself in constant situations where I am asked, "Will you ever start dating?" Will you ever have children?" "Will you ever get married?" And I can assure you, that I am probably not the only single person in the country who constantly gets asked these questions, and from time to time us singles often want to vomit in our own sick because it's not as if we are running away from these circumstances which often married people/people in a long term relationship question..Make sense?
So for inspiration for this article I took to the dating websites...Oh yes, the websites which make you question should I or should I not. These websites often promote that they can guarantee to find you love and I am sure they can but not for all. Yes I am one of those few women who are 100% fussy- "Below 5'5? NO. Smoker? NO. Children? NO. Student? Retired? Married? NO NO NO NO! How can I put this....I want something special! Although I have not been on these sites for long, I questions whether they work for someone like me. I mean, don’t we all prefer the old school traditional route? "Hi, My name is so and so, would you like to go for coffee with me?" Or is the new method of sending 'winks', 'pokes' and maybe even a virtual kiss the new way to date? If so, maybe I am out of the game.
Often us singles get made to feel that we are not putting ourselves in circumstances to be chased...yes we are now talking Lady and the Tramp...but what if we are? And yet, what if Love still does not arrive? Do we wait? Do we question? Because I guarantee you, we were not questioning ourselves before we were being questioned by the others.
