Specials for Singles.

June 12 is Valentine's day in Brazil. It's actually called "Day of Boyfriends/Girlfriends" (Dias dos Namorados) The way it's written can be considered both girlfriend and boyfriend. I hadn't thought much of it, until today. My parents and I went to eat out at the mall (one of the many things you can do in a city... ha..) I was in a really great mood for some pasta. My dad and I moved towards this great little pasta fast food, and my dad saw that there was a couple's menu. He wanted to get the couple's menu, because it would come out cheaper. Then as I was waiting for the food, I glanced towards another sign where it said, "specials for singles!" I stared at the poster for a while and thought, "unbelievable!"

I'm not sure why I reacted that way. I've been single for a long time and I enjoy single life. There's always someone or something trying to destroy my little world of singleness. It's not that I don't want to find someone, I really do, but sometimes I want people to know that I'm perfectly happy being single. I think it's important, to feel security about yourself and your status before you get involved. People just assume that if you're single, you must be miserable. I'm not, at this moment I'm perfectly content. Of course, I have my moments, but who doesn't? I think it's a matter of knowing yourself, before getting into a relationship. So many girls don't feel they have an identidy without being with a guy and I think that's sad.

That's my little ramble for today. I assure you, I'm very much ready for someone to enter my life. I just know that I need to wait a bit longer.


  1. wow that is so ridiculous! and I agree with you completely! Being single is a great opportunity to get to know who you are in Christ and in him alone!
