Yes, I am thirty seven and single. I have never been married, don’t have kids and have really never dated anyone.
I really think that because I have been overweight most of my life, I have put a huge wall around myself. This really became apparent to me the first time I lost a lot of weight, my personality began to shift a little bit. I definitely became a lot more extraverted and I was more willing to take a few more chances. I even went out on a blind date (which really ended up being a little bit of a nightmare but at least I got a good story out of it, right?).
Yes, sometimes I look at my friends who are married (really, at this point in my life, most of my friends are married) and want that for myself at some point in time. On the flip side, I’m sure some of them may look at my life and wish for the single life again :).
But what it all comes down to is I have to be comfortable and happy with myself before I’m going to be truly comfortable and happy with someone else. And that, my friends, I’m willing to wait for.
