Her: “Wait. How many guys are you dating?”
Me: “Zero. I went on a few dates.”
Her: “What about that guy you were seeing? I thought you loved him.”
Me: “It didn’t work out. I’m single. I date, but I’m not dating anyone.”
Her: “Oh. Okay. It’ll be alright, girl.”
What? Single isn’t cause for a sympathy card. I’m okay.
People break up, don’t work, and move on EVERYDAY. It’s not the end of the world. He decided I wasn’t who he wanted or what he wanted. His choice. Okay. Did it sting? Yep. Am I sad? Absolutely. Do I miss him? Sure do. Did I die? Nope.
I’ll be okay as a single woman. Many woman do the single gig everyday. Don’t cry for us; set us up with your man’s single friend.
