Now that I am firmly sitting in the spinster category, I am starting to get the questions about my panic button. It is the breaking point all single women reach when they realize they have 2 working ovaries left and they have no husband, therefore, no babies. Of course, this panic button mainly exists in some people’s imagination, but it is enough to warrant a discussion about what happens if you don’t meet the one.
Call me crazy, but I think what happens if you don’t meet the one is the same thing that happens if you do: life goes on. I am not one to extoll the virtues of living single forever but I also don’t fear it. That doesn’t stop people from projecting their fear of dying unmarried and alone on to me though. It’s kind of hilarious when you think about it, though. A lot of married people want to be single again, yet many attempt to make single people think they are missing out on a great life.
I have always said that if you are miserable single, you will be miserable married. What I fear is not being happy – single or married.
If you desire to get married one day, do you ever worry that marriage is not in the cards for you?
