Relationships, single, What's your Number

Single Girl Problems

We have not been writing many posts related to relationships in Post Grad lately, and my older post about being Post Grad and Single is still getting a lot of traffic (thanks all!) so I figured it was about time to add another relationship post.

Now, I’d like to start off by saying that I love being single. I love the freedom and independence, not having to answer to anyone else or plan around anyone else’s schedule. I love the possibilities. You never really know when you will meet the next man worthy of a date, so you look at every single one you pass and wonder if something will change him from a stranger to a lover.
That said, being Single also has it’s drawbacks. The most prevalent problems I am facing are below:
  1. No one else is around to kill bugs/mice but me. And I will if I have to, but it is certainly nice to have a man around to be all tough and manly and just take care of it.
  2. I have no t-shirts to steal… I mean wear. For some reason mens‘ t-shirts are just SO much more comfy.
  3. I get self conscious about sex. Not the act itself, trust me that’s fine, but the potential numbers I’m accumulating while single. There’s a movie that just came out with Anna Farris called “What’s your Number?” where she finds her exes in order to avoid raising her number. Yup, done that.
  4. For some reason men like to be the one driving, which is fine by me. Especially in this city, driving is stressful. But alas, while single I have to drive myself around.
Now if those four things could be solved, AND I could stay single, I think I’d be a happy camper.

About Shikole

I just moved to Austin, TX after living in the DC metro area for 6 years. I love wine, writing, exploring and fun. When all of those things can happen simultaneously, I'm a happy camper.

  1. Shikole, do I need to remind you that the concept of a "number" is just the patriarchy trying to suppress you and manipulate your sexuality? 🙂
