Singledom

Ugh. Hooking up with sperm-producing individuals is so fraught. There is a lot more trust involved, and that makes me feel inevitably disappointed when their level of vulnerability does not match mine.

I had a date tonight with a slightly older woman, and it was wonderful. I’m tired of dating younguns who don’t know what they want. But I’m also tired of older people who don’t know what they want.

It doesn’t help that I’m not among my things, not living near my friends, and that my self-care routine is non-existent. Instead I drink, smoke, and date people who are as unhealthy as the food I’m eating. Only 2 weeks til I move and start fresh…

Basically, and I know this isn’t cool these days, but I’d love to either be alone or enjoy monogamous partnership. I’m tired of the in-between; it’s a young woman’s game, and it’s a waste of time. But then I get lonely, and one “hey what’s up?” later I’m giving space in my life to someone I loathe.

I assume this will get better when I move.

  1. The advice I have received when in a similar predicament is something you kind of mentioned in your post. Try to enjoy being alone for a while. But, I also don’t know what the hell that even means, or how to go about doing it. Especially when, as you said, a person isn’t living near their friends. Being single is a strange, strange situation, especially when you’re pushing thirty in a world where it seems like everyone’s pairing off at twenty-one for some inane reason.

    Sorry, I kind of went on a rant there. Hopefully things get a little easier for you and/or you meet someone who fits you well to be in a relationship.
