The Single Woman’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge

The other day I came across this 30-Day Blogging Challenge and thought it looked like fun! So I’ve decided to do it, but on my own terms. Answering one of these questions every day sounds a little overwhelming (people do not need to hear about my sad singledom every day for a month, including me), so instead I am going to answer 7 or 8 questions at a time, once a week for the next month. Hopefully it will not be terribly boring or annoying or depressing. (All 30 questions can be found below).

SO. Post numero uno:

1) Your response to everyone’s favorite question: “And why are YOU still single?”

I have no idea. There are a couple obvious answer that I sometimes tell myself so I feel better, such as: “because guys suck” or “because I’m really too busy for a boyfriend anyways” or something like that. But the truth is, I haven’t the faintest idea. If someone else knows, I’d love to hear it.

2) Describe a moment or a day when being single really sucked.

Just one? No, I’m kidding. Mostly… Ummm, well, honestly, being single sucks a lot. Especially when your friends are in happy committed relationships.

3) Describe a moment or a day when being single was really awesome.

When I want to go have fun at a party and be able to dance with whoever I want. Or when I just want to have a night in with my girls and drool over guys in romcoms (aka what I want to do every day).

4) Your biggest fear as a single person.

That I’ll be single forever. Or not forever, necessarily, because I’m fairly confident that I’ll be in other relationships at points in my life, but single in the long run.

5) The biggest misconception you think people have about single life.

That all single people want to be in relationships. Even I think that about single people a lot of times, because for the most part it’s true for me. I have a lot of single friends, though, who aren’t at all interested in being in relationships. Lots of people also think that single life is all about crazy partying and hooking up with random people; believe me, we like sitting around and watching movies as much as the next taken person.

6) Sound off on the quote “Every woman has the exact love life she wants.”

Well, first of all, let me say that Dermot Mulroney, gorgeous man and speaker of this quote that he is, is my true love. Second of all, I think it’s bullshit. I think a lot of women settle for relationships they can find that they aren’t completely happy in, especially college-aged women. People have high expectations for their love lives that I think people often are willing to compromise what they are actually looking in exchange for what they can find.

7) Where you are in your life vs. where you thought you would be at this point.

I think I’m pretty much where I expected to be. At least as far as college/career stuff goes. As far as my social life goes, I’ve got great friends and I’m still close with those who I expected to be close to. And as far as my romantic life goes, I can’t really say it’s where I thought I would be, buuuuuut that’s alright…
