You know what? I have a pretty good life.
I’m going to be 33 in two weeks, and last night I realized something. I am set in my ways. I have a good job. I don’t really answer to anyone. I enjoy my freedom.
I had dinner with my friend, and then we went back to his place and sat on his patio for a while. It was really…nice. I enjoyed myself and probably could’ve sat on the patio for hours just talking and soaking the scene in.
HIs friend met up with us and we headed out into the city. We went to a newer place in Philly called Apothecary. You couldn’t just order a Heineken in a place like that. We ordered these fancy schmancy drinks and I was reminded of a spa. If they added shoulder massages to their menu, I probably would go there at least one a week.
As we were walking to the next place, I, once again, realized how many single women would probably fall over themselves to be in the situation I was in. Here I am, me, walking along in the city with two attractive men, one of whom is single, just letting life happen. I don’t take this for granted…ever. The thing is that there are moments when the reality of my life hits me, and all I can do is smile. And wish I wore flats.
I really like my life the way it is. I don’t want to date or get married to fill an emotional void in my life. I want to be in a relationship that adds to my life…someone to travel with, someone who I can call when my life is going exceedingly well, or if I just need to hear a friendly voice.
I have an aunt that we say is set in her ways. She’s in her 70’s, never married, lives alone. She loves being around people, but she loves going home to be alone. Who knows…maybe that will be me one day. I won’t have cats though 🙂
