In time for Valentine's Day, here's my Flashback Friday contribution, circa 2007.
Buy lots of cats or personal ads: these are the options of singleness. I choose neither. I don’t recoil when love is mentioned, but the hope of marriage isn’t what wakes me. I want to desire marriage without being labeled desperate; I want to enjoy singleness without being labeled bitter. At the same time.
So I’m declaring a third option. I’m still working on a cool name (it’s not a legit group unless it’s named—preferably an acronym) for Individuals Who Desire Marriage—But Aren’t Desperate, and Who Enjoy Singleness—But Aren’t Bitter (or IWDMADWESAB). I’m open to suggestions because not only is it impossible to pronounce IWDMADWESAB, it doesn’t fit on t-shirts.
