5 Worst Times To Be Single

5 Worst Times To Be Single

When I see an elderly couple together...

Here's the thing: being a married woman and having kids is not something I aspire to. I am fulfilled spiritually and emotionally, and having someone to spend my life with is just a bonus. Yes, I am independent, I am making my dreams come true, I take care of myself financially, and have family and friends... but having a man to share all of this with would be absolutely wonderful.

Having a partner to share in my success, to eat Sunday dinner with my parents, to meet my Grandmothers and my sister... that's the icing on the cake for me. For me, it's about having the type of love that you can't necessarily receive from your family and friends. Your family can, of course, love and support you, but romantic love and partnership are totally different. As I approach my 34th birthday, this is something I have been thinking a lot about. I feel like I am now ready to share my life with someone and not because I feel I need a man, but because I am truly excited to give my heart to someone. When I see an elderly couple together holding hands, or laughing, etc. it definitely makes me feel hopeful for my future.
