With spring just around the corner, it seems that love is starting to saturate the air. Valentine’s day has passed and with wedding season around the corner, many of my friends are wondering if Cupid will nip them in the bud this year. And it seems like every year, I have conversations with many eligible bachelors about what they would like in a woman. Qualities like “good cook” and “hot body” are always at the top. At some point, usually after some debate as to other characteristics does the topic of spirituality come up. The conversation then trails a bit and then usually ends up at some sporting event.
The interesting thing about this conversation is how quickly its dismissed. Obviously, it something that many people think about. But what isn’t is the joys and benefits of being single. And I wonder why that is.
What is it about being single? Is it taboo? If you’re single, it seems like you’re the only one. If you’re married, you can’t help but play matchmaker. If your dating, you look to couples for advice. I ask again: what is it about being single?
