BEING SINGLE Is Being Normal!
 
  • Being single (hint: it's always okay!) is okay when you're supposed to be single--in your twenties.  Getting out from under parents, going to college, joining the military, or starting a full-time job is what you do in your twenties.  It's also the time for finding love.  Afterwhich, you're supposed to settle down and get married.  In the past thirty years, this has shifted only a few years (but still in the twenties) in the United States.

  • Being single feels less okay when you're in your thirties because you realize everyone else is not single.  Friends won't stay out late anymore, you find yourself the 3rd or 5th wheel at every get together, and every conversation is about baby food and diaper delivery.

  • It really begins to feel uncomfortable in your forties when all your friends are a distant memory; too busy due to their kids' schedules.  You start getting glares from suspicious 40-year-olds pushing miniature plastic race cars around in the grocery store.  You, on the other hand, are humming along with just a hand basket holding a jug of milk and magazine.

  • Anytime you swim upstream aganist cultural norms you'll feel uncomfortable.  The cultural norm is to be married, but being single is normal!  43% of all American adults are currently single!  200 million adults in the US and 22% never marry!  Of the 78% of American adults that do marry, 25% will divorce at least once (which is about 33% of all married adults).
