never married, over forty, a little bitter


Always happy to see a new post on Gateway Women as they are very well-written:

why so scared?


When one of my friends who is single leaves me a voicemail or text, the message she leaves is ALWAYS along the lines of, “Hope you are out on a date having fun.”  She means well, she really does, but it annoys the heck out of me.

I am rarely out on a date having fun.  BUT.  I am often having fun, or at least feeling content, doing something else.  Without meaning to, she negates the rest (the bulk!) of my existence.
