How to Get Out of Your Single Gal Funk

How to Get Out of Your Single Gal FunkWhen I am in a single gal funk, I get low and funky. It goes a little something like this.

“Woe is me! I am single!”

“Woe is me! Where is he?!”

“Woe is me! All my friends are in relationships and I’m hotter! When is it my turn?!” (I told you I got low and funky.)

This goes on until I’m just about sick of my whining. How do I pull out of my single gal funk? By remembering a few of these amazing things about my life and single status.

I can watch whatever I want on TV.  When I was with my ex, I missed watching The Bachelorette and Pretty Little Liars. He loves college sports and I don’t care for any sports. You can imagine the conflict. We practically dove for the remote control. Now, as a single gal, I watch marathons of Mistresses and even (gasp!) The Real Housewives of Orange County.

I have not settled. Not to say that those in relationships have settled, but I know women who marry because they loath being single. They could no longer stand being alone. The next man that came along who wanted to commit was “the one.” I choose to wait for the right one for me. No one is perfect, but I refuse to be with someone just to be with anyone.

I have lots of love in my life. My family and friends adore me. So what if a man isn’t head-over-heels in love with me? I have other loves in my life. When he comes along, he’ll add to the love that’s already present.

I have a great career. I love what I do. Not many people can say the same. I work hard and have lofty goals. No matter what my relationship status, no one can take away my level of success and fierce ambition.

I have faith in God. The man upstairs will provide me with a long-term romantic partner when the time is right. I just have to ask for my soul mate and wait with patience, faith and conviction. He will come, and when he does, my single gal funk will be but a distant memory. And so will MTV Catfish marathons.
