Do I Need A Man?
I would say by both choice and circumstances I am still single.
I say choice because I refuse to give any man that title just for the sake of saying “I have a boyfriend”. While I never really had a problem attracting men, lately my current dating situation appears to resemble an open casting call for “The Bachelor Rejects”.
I say circumstances because I am not living in a city where quality men are just falling out of the sky (not sure what city would). I’m not sure when the mass memo on INFIDELITY IS OKAY was released, but it appears men seem to not be concerned with the fact that they are in relationships any more. So should I feel privileged that a man is willing to entertain me on the sideline? I’ve been there and recently recovering from that. The shoe didn’t fit me too well. Or maybe I am a spoiled brat and just don’t like sharing some things (like a man).
While I do have sexual urges that can be unbearable at times, is tolerating some extra bullshit in my life worth a good lay? It seems like the majority of my friends don’t know what they’re doing when it comes to relationships. So why can’t I be still, live life, and be happy without equating a man in the picture? Because I like being in the company of a good man. I enjoy being affectionate with the right man.
There’s only so much my female friends can do for me.
