I’m A Date-Free Zone And Here’s Why…
If you remember, I became quite the playa last summer and this lasted until Christmas, but something has recently changed…
I suddenly have no interest to date. At all. Seriously!
Now don’t get me wrong I had a great time dating various guys, some were just for fun and others had potential, but now I just don’t feel the desire to get dressed up and go out.
I think I went crazy for a while (funnily enough as I was approaching my thirtieth birthday) and I wonder if I have just got to the point where I’ve exhausted it.
Before you say it, no I haven’t recently been hurt by a guy and that’s why I don’t want to date, I’m just bored of it.
I just want to concentrate on my son, my work, my home and living my life, which I totally recommend to any girls out there thinking that they need a guy to be complete. YOU DON’T.
I actually find that my life now is so much less stressful (even with a hyperactive little boy!) without a man, which I never thought would be the case a few years ago.
When I look back to my time with sperm donor, I realise that the majority of it was very depressing for me. He caused me a lot of stress, and in a lot of ways he was really hard work (and yes I can be too). The thought of having to deal with a guy who could be lying, talking to me like dirt, going off whenever he feels like it and acting like an immature idiot is not appealing. I’m baffled as to why I kept going back for more, but happy that I got my beautiful son out of that carnage.
Clearly not all guys are like him (praise the Lord) but I genuinely couldn’t give two hoots if one came along or not now, as I like my life. Sure it would be great to have some help with my son, so that I could have a break (what’s that?) seeing as I work whenever he sleeps or is at nursery, or I get much needed chores done, but I’ve managed for nearly three years and know I can continue to do so.
I believe true happiness is loving yourself and creating a life you can love, whether a man is in it or not. If a guy comes along that would be a bonus, but my singledom is definitely not going to stop me from having the great, happy, love-filled life I currently have.
