31 reasons why being single rocks!

Happy Valentines day! Singles awareness day or Friendship day.
Whatever you want to call it today is to celebrate the special people in your life. In my opinion pets are included to this group. 
I've made a fun little list in lieu of this very special day!

1. Clean house. No one but me or the cats to mess it up.

2. Can rearrange the furniture anyway I want and not have anyone bitching about moving the couch.

3.Hogging covers and the bed.

4.I always get a hot shower.

5.Walking around the house naked.

6. If there is only a swig of juice/milk/pop I did it and cannot be pissed.

7. No towels on the floor.

8. Dye my hair whenever I want and can wander around the house. No one to complain of possible dye job drippiness.

9. I can buy what ever I want with out hear ’ How much did THAT cost?’


11. Go to bed after spending all day at the barn/gym and not having to shower. As nasty as that sounds… sometimes when you’re that tired.. you’re just that tired.

12. No difference in music choice. I can blare what ever the hell I want.

13. Dancing. No one to comment the lack there of.

14. Fantasizing about my imaginary rock star boyfriend, when real boyfriend is away doing something else for weeks on end or generaly pisses me off.

15. Never having imaginary rock star boyfriend and real boyfriend ever having to know about each other.

16. Decorating however I want. The girlier the better.

17. Sleeping in silence. NO SNORING.

18. No funny boy smells.(Except from my boy cat Fionn. But he can't help it. He's a cat.)

19. Being able to use any kind of tart in my tart burner with out hearing ‘What the hell is that smell? Burnt Skunk?’

20.I control the temperature in my apartment thank you very much.

21. I also control what’s on the menu every night.

22. And what I choose to watch on TV.

23.Shabby chic EVERYTHING! yaaay! :)!

24.Lounging in gym clothes for hours because I can for as long as I want.

25.Guilty pleasure shopping.

26. Cupcakes for breakfast.

27. Do what you want. Go where you want. No questions asked.

28. Ugly, quirky or weird flannel pj's. comfy always overrides sexy in my book. :)

29.No one can mess up your diet because they insist on having man food in the fridge. 

30.You can have as many cats/dogs/horses as you can afford no one will label you the crazy animal lady. well at least not to your face.

31. Celebrating this day your way and never having disappointment because you didn't get what you want.

These are all stupid generic reasons why being single is fun. Yea hahah I can dance around the house or even walk around naked and then mess up the house. But by the end of the day I'm still single and no one loves me (Family is a different kind of love and I don't count that.)

There is really nothing good about being single. Just pain and suffering and watching others snuggle while loveing each other.

Dear Anonymous,

These are not stupid generic reasons. I was being candid. I was making light of this day and I have no problem with any part of this post.If you do not like what I have to say you do not have to read this blog.

When you open up and realize that you need to love yourself, if you can't do that how the can anyone else love you? But when you see that all you really need is you and open up and understand this you realize how freeing it is.

Love starts from within my dear. Once you can accomplish this you can do anything!

I am very sorry for your pain but please realize that there are many people around you that love and care about you You don't need a boyfriend for that.

I have a very happy life. I love it and I would not change it for the world.

Having the ability to take care of myself is far more valuable than being forced to dependent on someone else.

You may not understand right now because you sound very young, but when you get to my age you will know a lot of married people. Some are in very unhappy and in some cases very abusive relationships. It's hard to understand but one day you will be envied and resented for your single status. free to come and go. Free to do whatever you want.

I wish you the best of luck in your endeavors. I hope you find the love with in yourself and turn that light on.

Love starts from with in. Believe in that.

xoxo ~Michelle

I love your reasons! I personally do not need a Hallmark holiday to remind me to say "I love you" to the people I care about.
Enjoy the day :)

Amen to that!! I really think you need to embrace whatever stage you're at. If you're single, there are so many great things to it. If you're happy in a relationship, there are many great things about that too. By being present, true and loving to yourself, great things will come to you.

Michelle said...

Aww Thanks!

Marina:It is very true to what they say. The reason why they call it the present is because this is a gift.

Janet: I'm glad you liked my list. I got the idea from and there list a was a bit barbaric. So I gave my spin on things.

I really hope everyone spent their Valentines day with the one they love. I chose to spend my day with my beloved mare Whisper. Gave her a bath, rode, and extra helpings of grain.

She was really happy after the bath part.

Nice that most of these are applicable to men, too. Most of my high school friends are married, and it's a life that I used to really want for myself, but the older I become, the less and less I really like the idea of losing my independence. Good job, you.
