  1. I feel the same; I am happy solo for now. I would rather be single than be with someone that doesn’t deserve me.

  2. Great Post!!! I was single for a year!! Me time is always good. It helps to maintain the balance you need to be in a healthy relationship. And…you don’t have to compromise on where to eat or what to watch! I loved being in my pj’s and not worrying about what I looked like. Although, I’m married now and not much has changed….so perhaps it isn’t a valid point. Anyhow, enjoy it!!! Take the time for you!!!

    1. Haha that’s what I did when I was married.. pjs life is where it’s at.. However not sure I’ll be able to do that, if this blogger junk doesnt bring in income haha.. I’m actually looking forward to getting out of the house and working, sad kinda.. laying around in pjs blogging is a lot easier lol

  3. We get a lot out of our netflix and/or amazon prime, too. Especially with the “waterfalls” shows (just falling water the whole time) at quiet time when the kids are calming down for the evening 🙂

    I think being single is fine, like you said you are waiting for what you deserve.

  5. The year and a half I was single before I met my husband was definitely hard, and I feel you on the loneliness. But, you learn so much about yourself, grow, and – as you stated- end up in a better place than you were previously. While it is hard, you must remember- you are single for a reason, and that is because you choose to be. I guarantee you could find a boyfriend/husband/etc- but it might not be somebody who is actually good for you. I bet any of those tinder boys you could have hooked, but you CHOSE not to, because you deserve better. Keep reminding yourself of that!

  6. Being single can be tough when you are used to being in a relationship. However, it gets easier over time. I don’t do the dating apps thing because it is just a bunch of men up there who have no goals for their life and are just looking for one night stands in my opinion.

  7. Being single can certainly be so tough! I miss some aspects of being single, but there are many that I am so thankful to be past that point of my life. Hang in there! And kudos to you for knowing your worth and waiting for what you deserve!

  8. I know exactly what you mean my life now is work, home to blog, eat and/or watch tv and thats it nothing more. Its tough being single but as the quote says its not that you’re week just waiting for what you deserve. Things will love up soon, just continue loving you

  9. Being single does have its drawbacks, but it is also kind of nice! Even though you might spend all this time alone…enjoy it! When you get to be a wife and a mom, you will wish you had an hour of alone time! I only get alone time at 3 am haha!

    1. I am a mom.. a mom of four at that.. and i have been a wife… its okay lol

  10. 5 months may seem like a long time especially when you’re bored and thinking about getting together with other people to feel more complete. Anyway, everything you said is true. It’s just a matter of perspective. I guess we need to find things that make us happy and feel loved and special.

  11. You are so right to wait for the right person that deserves you. I was so happy single and ready to be single for as long as it took and then my husband popped out of the blue one weekend and the instant I met him, I knew. Before that I had wasted my time on men who, like you found, want one thing. It’s far better to wait – good things come to those who wait, and that needn’t be a man 🙂

  12. First of all, it’s awesome that you have your blog to focus on – it’s your baby, it deserves all of your well-spent attention, and you get the benefit of some wonderful interactions, I’m sure. 🙂 I hear you on the lowlights of being single… I’ve definitely spent time with similar emotions and circumstances. But depending on how you look at it, there are always benefits as well.. And without sounding too Pollyanna-ish, I think it’s good to enjoy the pros of your current situation. So, when you’re in a relationship, you have the best of that world, and when you’re not, you can binge watch your favorite show for 10 hours and eat/wear whatever you want (or not). 😉 Have fun!


  13. Awh, I’ve been there. When my oldest child was 10m old, to the day, my husband…my rock…my everything went to the store and never came home. He had me bake him cookies, kissed me good bye in the most romantic way and hopped a 4000 and some odd mile flight to the UK. I thought he had died. Then, I wished I had.

    I would invest your time in your children, so they remember a Mum who made them happy, even on the days when she was not. Rekindle an old spark in yourself, remember your old hobbies, passions and the qualities about yourself that you loved before you made someone else your priority– and find them all again. Read, lots. Get into a bedtime routine, with no lights on for an hour or so before bed and take some melantonin, if it’ll help you sleep (it won’t leave you groggy in the morning and it’s natural).

    And run. Walk, at first, but run.

    Those are just the things that helped me and, if you ever need to chat, you can always feel free to bend my ear. I went through hell but, fast forward 8 years and I’m with the first person that ever told me he loved me (before the ex hubby) and we have a beautiful family. Four kiddoes here too…so I feel ya on that one as well LOL


    1. WOW, just wow.. Thanks for sharing that with me, that’s crazy.. and thank you! I actually used to hate reading and I happen to enjoy that now. I live in no man’s land, no where to really walk, after I move though, I plan on walking all the time, I want to do at least one 5k, small goals for the year. I wish melantonin worked for me, but my body got used to it and it doesn’t work anymore. But thank you!

  14. I’m obsessed with Netflix!! Haha in with you on losing track of time watching things on there. There’s just sooo mannnnny choicesssss. You are so right, you have to learn to love yourself before you can open up and love anyone else!
