Did The Maths. And I've Decided To Stay Single

I am the only singleton in my group of friends. Some of them have mortgages together. They have all discussed marriage and kids. They are happy. Settled.

I know my friends would say they aren't settling, but are content. I can see that they are actually very much in love with their respective others and I'm happy for them, so this post isn't about relationship-bashing.

...Also, as a girl who previously stayed with their high-school sweetheart for 5 years, I'm not really in a position to be judging anyone...

This post is about how, from my very empty Singleton-camp, I won't be ready to go back to Relationship-ville for a while. It's about how I just can't relate to those who dwell there!

To me, picking a potential life-partner at this age would be like choosing the first option on a menu, without reading the rest. Or watching the first channel you land on, without flicking through the TV guide. Like only ever going to one country or shopping in one shop.  I mean, sure, Wagamama's Katsu Curry is the tits - but are you going to have it every time you go there or will you try one of the other 30 dishes on offer?

10 Things I'm Worrying About Today

In no particular order...
  1. Money (always).
  2. Attending my first ever Hen Do on Friday. Does this make me old? 
  3. What exactly my GP meant when she said I had a "weird" cervix.
  4. How much weight I'm going to gain since freezing my gym membership (because of lack of item #1).
  5. My friend broke my shower and I feel awkward about asking her to replace it.
  6. I haven't replied to any of my matches on Happn, which makes me a horrible person.
  7. Seeing Lips on Saturday.
  8. How I'm going to get my dysfunctional family together for Father's day.
  9. Presenting my business plan and financial forecast to the bank tomorrow.
  10. Competing with the BBC and Working Title for film rights next week.
