The Spinster House


What a wonderful idea for a community!
I've always been happiest when I was one.  In fact the truth of the matter is, the only time in my life I was ever lonely was when I was married. (I've been divorced for a LONG time - so I am hoping one horribly rotten marriage won't keep me out of the club) 
The truth is I seem to do better on my own.  I like having a cute little apartment decorated the way I want it to be decorated. I can eat what I want for dinner, I can watch the movies I want,  (oddly enough I love chick flick movies.)  I like having my own life. It's small and it's humble, but it's mine.  I used to think it was because I was an only child. That because of that I needed my alone time more then other girls. Then I realized that I just really love my oneness.
The hardest thing for me is dealing with friends and family. Isn't it funny about how the people that have made the worst decisions and have "wrecked"  their lives  because the "needed" a man so badly  that it didn't matter if it was the worst kind of man they were getting are the ones that are the harshest?
So hurray - I look forward to being a part of the house! .

Welcome, welcome!

I agree with the friends and family bit, though you're right. It's funny that my (4th time is the charm!) married mother and my grandmother with Hitler as a husband are definitely the harshest when I'm alone. Dissatisfaction in their own lives leads to wanting to spread the joy I guess...

Welcome!!! My mother told my sister's in-laws at my nephew's b-day party, "Lori is still single!"

I corrected her by saying, "I'm single and NOT LOOKING." It makes a difference!!

Hope to have some great conversations here!

Have you ever heard the song "One Man Guy" by Rufus Wainwright? I recommend it - it totally describes how I feel about my solitude.
