the single life [challenge]

I'm linking up with Fal from Fal Finds Happiness for her I Challenge You series. My challenge is the single life...

I've always been single, and have always been completely ok with that. I think it comes from being an only child, I'm used to being on my own. I've never been the type of girl that had to have a boyfriend, had to have constant guy attention, hey I never even had a date to a high school dance. I was a late bloomer, and really didn't start to receive attention from guys until college.

When I really start to peel back the layers of why I'm ok with being single, I'm finding that I might just be scared. Since I've never really had a boyfriend, I don't know what that kind of life would be like, and that unknown can be scary. As I'm typing this, it seems kind of ridiculous, but sharing my life completely with a guy freaks me out. 

Lately, I've been meeting a few guys who seem genuinely interested in me, and I'm not quite sure what to make of that. Maybe, I'm just really guarded. There was a guy back in college who was really into me, so much so that it turned me away, but he always said that I had all of these walls up. Thinking back, I'm sure he was right, and saw things in me that I couldn't even identify at such a young and transitional age.

But, I do enjoy my single life. I enjoy the freedom of doing what I want, the excitement of meeting new people, and the fun in just having a good, carefree time. Do I want more than that? I'm still not sure.

  1. you go girl! I wish I had a friend like you around where I live. I need a single girlfriend. I am the same way right now. I have people interested in me, but at the end of the day I am really OK with being single right now. And I have walls up...higher than anyone can even imagine!!!

  2. So glad you're linking up with me today. I completely understand the single life challenge. You're not alone girl!

  3. I'm also single and have been for a while now, I got through spates of not having a boyfriend for a few years then dating a bit - this has happened a few times over my teens and twenties. I would love to settle down now but it will need to be an awesomely special guy to make me happy to give up my single life where I am who I am and I don't need to answer to anyone!

  4. It's great that you embrace the single life because then you can be as "selfish" as you want to. It sucks sometimes having to compromise when you're in a relationship and you can't always have things your way because you have to worry about the other person's wants.

    Once you find a guy you really like, you'll know it and it'll be worth not wasting time with all the losers that are out there.
