Since I have been single, its seems that on a daily basis I seem to see – adverts, movies, tv shows, books, music, social media - suggesting that life is all about being in a happy relationship with a loving partner.
As my circumstances have dictated, I have been on my own for nearly two years and I never thought that at this stage in my life that this would be the case.
Firstly I was relieved and I enjoyed my new 'single' life and it felt like I had come into myself and I lavished in doing what I wanted, when i wanted, remote control all to myself, no moaning about my dishes left in the sink from that morning, no socks and underpants on the bedroom/bathroom floor (only my own, which is okay :-).
I got a dog and that gave me a whole new direction as the dog needed looking after and every morning and evening i would walk the dog and at weekends I would walk the dog for hours. Having a dog opens up a whole new network, as people stop and talk to you and being a single woman with a particularly cute dog I get some quite cute men........stop and talk to the dog!!
I have had people who feel sorry for me when they hear I am single and others who judge me on this but I have learned not to focus so much any more on these opinions......
I have felt over this past few months that there is a 'shift' taking place and I will explain this in my next blog.......
Have a lovely Sunday evening, chat soon, Jacqui x
