a94030ab-7ea1-4261-ad21-3e60413a823b

Can you imagine that after a 3 year hiatus, my first blog post is about FAKING a boyfriend? I completely understand… the whole idea seems a little ridiculous, but here me out. I was inspired after reading an article by Cosmopolitan writer, Hannah Smothers who faked an Instagram boyfriend in one week.

Just one week? Challenge accepted. More

Terminally Single 004: Taylor Swift

Once upon a time there was an aspiring country pop star from Pennsylvania. She dreamed of fame; she dreamed of money; and most importantly, she dreamed of boys!

She got her fame and her money, but she hasn’t quite found the guy. We certainly can’t say that she hasn’t tried.

The Deal-Breakers

I know, I know… It has been forever since my last post. Honestly, I have no excuses. BUT these last couple of months have opened me up to new thoughts and ideas to share on my blog.

Damn... I thought he was 'The One'

Damn… I thought he was ‘The One’

Before starting, I would like to remind everyone that even though I am single I still have eyes, I still have ears, I still have likes and dislikes. There is nothing wrong with having certain preferences. It doesn’t make me a picky person. A picky person is someone who has requirements, not preferences. Usually these requirements are stricter than a background check for the CIA. If I were you, I would avoid having lists like the one on the right.

Putting requirements aside, sometimes there are deal-breakers that you just can’t get around. You should be able to have these preferences without  assuming the label of being picky. As usual, I will give you some of my deal-breakers so you don’t feel abnormal.

Terminally Single 003: Betty & Veronica (Archie Comics)

After my picture-book phase and before my interest in short stories, I was obsessed with Archie Comics. I had an entire collection and traded older issues with cousins and friends. Like most children, I took everything at face value. Archie is a popular guy in a small town. Betty is the friendly girl who proved to be talented at everything. Veronica fits nicely into the spoiled rich girl archetype, but still maintains likeable qualities.

Now that I am 22 years old, what has changed about my opinion of Archie comics?

Archie Andrews is the ultimate player! More

What Does Single Mean?

In June, I treated myself to a visit to Chapters book store. I call this a treat because I was in the middle of summer school, and I had no business reading anything that was not mentioned on my class syllabus.

Maclean's June 2012On my way out the door, a magazine caught my attention. “The majority of us are singles. So why do we still live in a couples world?”  I had a wisp of realization. The article was talking about me! Okay, maybe it was not talking ABOUT me, but it was definitely FOR me. I snatched the magazine from the stack and flipped it open.

The entire article is an interview with Brian Bethune, a university professor, as he shares his thoughts and opinions on the stigma of being single. He points out some concerning issues about how society reacts to single people: More

The Single Sibling Syndrome

No one ever likes to be last.

This is no different for relationships. You don’t want to be the last single person among friends, the last person with a date for prom, or even the last one to get married. The worst is between siblings. It is easy to become jealous of a relationship your sibling has, especially if you don’t have one. Jealousy is just one side effect of something I like to call the Single Sibling Syndrome (SSS). More

Desperation: Just A Hop, Skip & Jump Away

“The trouble is not that I am single and likely to stay single, but that I am lonely and likely to stay lonely.” –Charlotte Bronte

Loneliness.  When I hear that word, I think of solitude, isolation, single, alone, sad, and desperate. Loneliness feeds desperation. Be careful! Desperation can cause the most level-headed people to make the stupidest decisions. Take for example Bachelor Ben Flajnik choosing Psycho Courtney as a wife. I can only account desperation as the reason for Ben’s huge mistake.

Everyone has a breaking point. Luckily I’m not there yet… well I don’t think I am. But it happens. If you are single and longing for a relationship, please be aware of the signs of desperation. More
