21st Century Spinster

Last week I stumbled across the link to an article about 21st Century Spinsters - since I pretty much fit that description, I couldn't resist clicking over to give it a read.  I didn't have high expectations, I assumed I would come away feeling slightly sorry for myself.

Instead, I found myself celebrating, if just for a few minutes, my spinsterhood.  While I do wish, like one of the women interviewed in the article, that I could brag about dating guys from every continent, the truth is, in most other respects I live a pretty amazing life.  I get to live in and travel to amazing places.  I have a job that sounds really cool (and, most of the time, is somewhat cool.)   I have the independence to live life on my terms and spend my time doing the things that I enjoy, which typically means wasting too much time on the internet and listening to music.  I can waste money on cute shoes and jewelry with only a little guilt.  And I have an amazing family and friends who support and love me just as I am.  So, yes, I life a pretty good life.

That being said, I, like many of my spinster sisters, still hold out hope that around one corner I'll find that guy who could be an amazing partner.  But until that time comes, I'm going to keep celebrating my spinsterhood - and I'll live it to the fullest.

Good for you, you sassy spinster! Yes, there are perks of having a husband and family, but I'm so glad that you appreciate the things that your life is offering you. I could use a cute pair of shoes...sans guilt!
