Is anyone who reads this blog single?

As in not married or seriously attached?

I just thought I'd ask. Seems to me sometimes the blogging world is overrun with married or LTR people.

Or is it just me?

Single, sweetie. As in not married, not separated, not seeing anyone single.
I'm a sibilance!

Am single darling.

Himself and I are no longer (though we do still involve in random text messages).

Well, ladies, we sure aren't getting an overwhelming response here. Either married people are at home more and can blog more, or...I don't know what else.

Thanks for making me not the only single blogger.

Though, DN, I bet you hook up with biker guy soon and leave cuddleslut and I all on our lonesome.

And where are the single male bloggers, I ask you? Is it only femmes? Really, we need at least three now. Preferrably six or more, though, so we three can mix and match.

I'm guilty. I'm a LTR gal. :S

Oh, but back in the day...I was a deliciously sassy single blogger!

*whine* biker boy...*whimper*
No, seriously. I would really rather just have friendly relations with him, not do the whole 'boyfriend' thing. I'm still "Relationship" shy. And yes, that IS in quotes and capitalized for a reason. Don't want to go there. I want Heinlein's world. I want to pick and choose and have everyone in the polyandry get along just fine with no jealous trips of the head.
But that would be Utopia. And that doesn't exist.

I'm single! So single that I have spent the last few days obsessing over my new blog template. So sad. So very sad...

So very, very, very seriously single.

But I know what you mean. I imagine most of my readers all happy loving couples, sharing intimate dinners, having wonderful sex lives, waking up together in the morning all fresh minty breath and terms of endearment, chatting about the books they enjoy, the crazy blogs of single women they read together and shake their heads in condescending pity over, taking long walks, trading gentle jokes and humor, sharing the tv remote in an equitable fashion.


I've got 9 dogs, 11 cats, 3 kids, a ferret, 3 geese and a whole bunch of chickens... all together in a LTR... Does this count?

Okay, so it looks like there's single straight women out there, and no one else is single. And in fact, all cool, smart straight women, too. What's up with that?!?!

Rural Observer: Thanks for saying hi even if you defy the demographic. :)

Darkneuro: Yeah, I know what you mean. Some days I feel like that. (What was that Absolutely Fabulous quote? "Take it away, and bring me anotha lovaaaah....") Many more other days, though, being solely adored seems like a nice option. I don't get enough of that. I like feeling special.

Brooke: Guess what I'm planning to do this holiday weekend? Call me sad girl l#2. Okay, well today I went to a festival and a film. So maybe only pseudo sad. But the REST of the holiday weekend: toying with the blog and WAY too late spring cleaning.

AAG: Membership has its benefits. ;)

But then again, it also has its sexless nights. Though I know that's not all that uncommon in relationships, either.

Circe: Well, um, I've heard that videos exist that depict "intimate acts" with dogs and chickens...heh. But nah, I don't think even that counts as a "relationship."

Seriously, though, good point. There are a lot of other relationships in one's life that are worthwhile besides the romantic ones.

As darkneuro said... uh... I'm not married, not separated, not seeing anyone, though I guess I kind of have a nonexclusive fuckbuddy. Since that relationship's just sex, I suspect that I still count as single!

Tory: Yep, the odds are definitely in your favor. More's the pity.

A: Yeah, I think that qualifies you. Wish I could do the nonexclusive fuckbuddy thing, but I don't seem to be equipped for it. I get attached too easily.

you know, i always thought that about myself (that i got too attached too easily). then i got out of a long term relationship that was extremely serious and realized that i didn't want to go through that again anytime soon. i was really surprised at the defense mechanism my psyche came up with this time. i'd never thought i'd manage to disassociate sex and love.

now i just hope i can learn to associate them again when the time comes.

Happy, satisfied, and whole in a LTR. It is much like Circe described, except we do not judge blogs or those that write them. The only internet topics I can remember ever discussing came from either MSNBC, Slate, or Yahoo finance.
Also, after consulting with her about this earlier - no matter how much we floss and brush neither of us has ever awoke with minty fresh breath. But she has never had a cavity and the only dental work I've required came last year when I cracked a molar on a Nerds candy.

NotCarrie: Likewise.

TheRetropolitan: So, um, are you single?

(Look at all the hot single women above you can choose from. Get in there!)
