Now that I am single, everyone has been telling me that things are going to look up, that I will find the right girl and get married. But, now that I am single, I quite enjoy the solitude. I have less responsibility, more free time, more money and I get to watch UFC unleashed all afternoon. So, why is it so important for everyone else that I jump back into a relationship, or even start looking? Misery loves company, well so do people in relationships. I think everyone wants what they don't have so if they see me being content with a single life, they somewhat envy the freedom. Moreover, they want more soldiers in their army. Well, I think that there is something to be said for someone that does not find their happiness through others, but through themselves. Maybe its evolution or natural selection. Maybe my kind is being slowly weeded out until everyone is coupled up. I used to be a hopeless romantic. I used to believe you had a soulmate, or atleast would find that one that would erase in other potentials. I now believe that everyone is lost and scared. People are frantic to find something to hold on to, someone that will remember them when they are gone, someone to carry on their legacy. This causes people to continue on with terrible relationships and to lose respect for themselves. I think that the biggest cynics are carved out of hopeless romantics. Sometimes though, people can just "be" without having to be with someone.
