Ohhh … So THAT’S Why (I’m Not Married)

Top 6 Reasons Why You're Not Married

Mar 2, 2011 by

If you are like me, you have some friends who you intangibly just sense will not get married, at least any decade soon. You can sit around a table at lunch and know that wherever they are in the dating cycle, be it flirting, passion or boredom, it’s almost mute to talk about because they will be back around again. And again. I’m also in this “mortally single” class of woman myself.

From observation I have deduced that this plight is not founded on looks or physical type. It is not geographical location. It is not even a specific career or education, though most mortally single women I know are smarter than the average bear. I have never been able to really put it into words very well, but read two blog articles today where women did.

I love this Tracy McMillan Huff Post article, Why You’re Not Married and love the rebuttal by my Funny not Slutty friend Gabrielle Birchak even more. So read first Tracy’s post and then click over to Garbrielle’s.

And you will have great insight as to why you are not married. Tracy lets us know the barriers to matrimony (whether it would be a good marriage or bad), and Gabrielle shares that married women have these same qualities; they just know how to hide it a little better. I feel a little more secure knowing that we’re all “shallow, selfish, no good bitch sluts” after all. Not just the single of us.

Both ladies emphasize something really important. Whether it’s to meet a man or accept a man, or just to accept yourself, it’s important to love yourself. So that’s the key. Love yourself. Oh, and if you are like me, it might be a good idea to also get out from behind the computer every now and then to actually meet people. But then, I would have missed two great discussions today…

  4. Thank you for shout out, Jacki! I completely agree with Mary. I think to couple up with “anybody” is a sure sign that we don’t love ourselves enough to hang out with ourselves. By embracing ourselves, we soon find ourselves with girlfriends and boyfriends who love us as much as we love ourselves, and as such, treat us like the goddesses that we are!

    A toast to the Goddesses!

  5. I believe that we ALL could be married…if we really truly wanted to be. But, way too many people couple up because they don’t want to be alone. They don’t wait for THE one. They settle for A one.

    (I had a starter marriage in my 20s; it didn’t take. I’ve been mortally, happily, extremely single for nearly 25 years.)

    And – yes – getting out of the house and meeting real 3-D people helps too. 😉
