I'm single, a boss b#tch and I earn a six figure salary. I'm what you call 'intimidating' to a swipe right driven society. I'm told that I'm too confident, too independent and too fierce to be holding hands with anything other than my iPhone and Birkin bag.
Which brings me to question, why am I being looked at as an outcast because I chose to be career driven and goal orientated? I'm approaching my thirties and I'm constantly probed as to why I don't have a ring on my finger. Since when did my relationship status bother anybody other than me?
Not only am I going to be blatantly honest about the questions people ask and think but I'm also going to give you a few things to consider when this situation occurs.
At the end of the day, when it comes to being in a relationship or being single or whatever ones preference is, these are the top 7 things that should never be questioned because quite frankly, they annoy the sh#t out of people like you and me.
Does my vagina still work?
Of course it does. We live in 2015 people, if I wanted to have sex, then I would, if I don't - then the last time I checked, I had a purple battery operated friend who can help me out in that department.
Am I sleeping with everyone?
Just because I'm not committed right now doesn't mean I spread my legs easily (but so what if I did, it's my choice and my body)
Am I lonely?
Everyone gets lonely. But in a world of technology there's hundreds of apps to download where I can strike up random conversations.
Am I too complicated?
Maybe, but don't mix my singleness with being too stuck up to date men. Have you ever thought that maybe I've made a choice not to settle for an arsehole?
Am I worried about my eggs?
Please give me a break. Kids or no kids, I'll figure that out when I'm ready.
Am I the marrying type?
Seriously, this is no ones concern. When and if I choose to marry is completely my business. But right now I'm totally OK with being married to my career.
Am I happy?
Happiness isn't just found in a man. Let me leave you with this quote by Carrie Bradshaw, "Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with."
