Single Isn't Just a Status

Single isn't just a status.
It's a word that describes a person
 who is strong enough to enjoy life
without having to depend on anybody else:)
So, I can't seem to get this out of my head so I am putting it down. Yes, I am 28 and single. No, I do not believe that "something is wrong" or I'm doomed to be single forever.  Some single people like to use the quote I put at the top.  I do enjoy my life.  Trust me.  Now more then ever.  At 28, I am in a lot better shape then I was within the last 5-6 years, I LOVE my job (both of them actually) and am genuinely happy.

I know that some people don't get it.  How I am ok with it.  I don't want to be single forever, don't get me wrong.  However, I want it to happen on its own.  I would like whomever he is to be enjoying his time right now too, that way when we come together, he's all in too!  A lot of people I know are having a hard time with this.  They have seen a lot of people in their life get married recently and wonder when their time is due.  It's coming. Don't wait for it, but don't rush it.  Don't settle to get it quicker either.

I remember being 18 and thinking Eric was EVERYTHING I ever wanted and needed.  Now I think about it and think how closed off we would have been.  Mom & I had a talk last night about how she meet my father at 15, was married at 18 and now divorced at 62 and living on her own for the first time.  She went on to tell me she thought I would have been married by now.  When I was in HS she thought I would settle for whoever and as I got older she felt the same. Now, she knows I won't settle but is scared I could be to picky.

Yes, I am picky but only because I want someone to be going as hard as I do.  I want someone who has the same interest as mine (not all but a runner or CrossFitter would be FANTASTIC) so we have some stuff to do together and some stuff to do separate. And clearly he has to be into sports with the Buckeyes and Bengals just being a major bonus ;)

Yes, I am 28 and single. And I really am ok with it :)

Love will find me when it's time:)
