15 Real And Honest Moments I Wish I Was Not Single
“Why haven't I got a husband and children?" 
mused Greta Garbo to the Dutchess of Windsor, 
"I never met a man I could marry.”
-Greta Garbo



Here's a confession: there are moments I wish I was not single.

Sure most days I revel in my glorious single life. But there are moments when I wish I was so NOT single.

From really serious to downright trivial moments, sometimes I wish there's someone with me.


15 Real And Honest Moments I Wish I Was Not Single


1.  When I have to carry my laundry bag to and from the laundry shop because it didn't reach the minimum kilo requirement to avail the free pick-up and delivery service. They're heavy! And I have a back problem.



2.  When I'm really exhausted that even going to the spa to get a massage is tedious...but my body's aching I really want a massage and couldn't find a home service stat.



3.  When I'm too lazy to run some errands. I wish I have a personal assistant.



4.  When I buy too much that I need someone to carry my shopping bags.



5.  When I went to the hardware and bought Venetian blinds for the first time. Clueless moment.



6.  When I tried installing the Venetian blinds myself and everything, uhm...fell and disintegrated.  I was so frustrated I almost cried. True story.



7.  When I couldn't unscrew anything or loosen a tight cover. I have a strong and brave heart, but the skeletal muscle is another story.



8.  When I'm sick, but have to get up and buy myself medicine and prepare me some nutritious meal so I can recover quick.



9.   When I feel a little lousy because of PMS, and there's no one to reassure me I'm okay or at least someone I could unleash the hormonal monster inside with. Because like he has no choice but be a punching bag every month, but not hold a grudge against me because he knows it's just the hormones talking. Ladies of course knows what that means.



10.  When my back really hurts but I need to go somewhere, and I don't want to leave the house without my essentials. Even when I try to remove a few things, the bag still feels heavy. Back problem is no petty thing.



11. When I have to travel alone and I feel paranoid and vulnerable.



12.  When I want to watch a movie and all my friends are not available and I'm not in the mood to watch it alone.



13.  When I need to share something too personal to share with friends or family. Or petty things even friends and family will find too trivial. I know a significant other wouldn't mind.



14.  When I need some minor repair around the house that I am clueless with. Google has become a consistent boyfriend for the past few years. Only that he does the dictating while I do the doing. That is the exact opposite with a real life boyfriend.



15.  When I'm being a scaredy-cat and it's too inconvenient or too late to call someone to sleep over or at least keep me company.


15 trivial yet valid and simple real life first hand experiences when I couldn't stop wishing I have someone at the moment. At those moments.

If married couples have their "I wish I was single" moments, singles have their "I wish I have someone with" moments too.

I am in a state where I can look you in the eye and tell you honestly and sincerely that I am absolutely genuinely happy being single. In fact, I'm getting too comfortable it's a little alarming.

Human as I am though, I still have moments when I wish to fill the emptiness in me.

Normal emotional single and hormonal moments though, not despairing desperate and suicidal ones. Thank God.

These moments make me realize a few things:

That PMS really sucks.
That the desire to have my own family and raise champion kids is still very much alive in me.
That I am still normal!
That I need people in my life.
That every human indeed has an emptiness in their hearts that no amount of earthly treasure can satisfy.
That the cliche, 'all we need is love' is true.

That I can't live without God.

You know what? That moment passes, and I'm okay again. Back to my normal happy single and comfortable life. Like nothing happened.


Christ indeed is enough for me.

  3. Hmm, I think I need to share this list with hubby. #11 and #14 are the only ones on there that I was like "yeah, that's kinda nice" and for #14, it usually involves more work on my part to get it done anyhow. I could definitely stand to have someone around with that foot bath!! :)

  4. Thank you for visiting my blog "paulinescountrytales" and commenting about my first great grandchild. Even though I'm older I can relate about being single as my husband died when I was 50 year old and I lived alone for eight years. Interesting blog you have here. Paula from south Texas

  5. Few of them sounds like you need more of a personal assistant than a boyfriend :-/

    1. And that's because a boyfriend is no necessity as of the moment. Personal assistant is. ;)

  6. I think it is great that you enjoy being single... there good things and not so good things to both sides of the coin... I have been married and I have been single and even though my marriage didn't work out, I still desire that partnership with someone special... xox

    1. That's true. Happiness is a choice.
      I always am honest with my posts. I owe that to the people who stop by and waste a few seconds of their time to read. That's the least I can give them back---real story with lessons to learn. :)

      Thanks as always for visiting!

  9. I enjoyed being single. I dated some pretty okay guys and then I found my soul mate. I can't imagine being single now. You'll find the love of your life when you quit looking.

    Have a fabulous day and thanks for visiting Comedy Plus. ☺

  20. I love that you're real, my super friend. Being authentic about where we find ourselves in life sure beats wearing a mask and pretending that life's problem free.

    I hope your weekend gives you moments that make you smile, and good friends to make you laugh out loud.

    Blessings, friend ...

  23. Thank you for letting us married folks know what you singles struggle with. I am clueless in Hardware stores too!!!!!

  24. There are gadgets to help you unscrew a lid and reach high shelves, but it is nice to have someone who can do that for you. I am sure I would not know how to install blinds either. I enjoyed your 15 reasons, and then your declaration that being single can also be nice. Thanks for sharing with us here at "Tell Me a Story."

  25. I have several single friends and there are times they know I envy their singleness just as they envy my marriedness. The key is to use what ever status one is in to glorify Him. Become an others person is not based on whether we are married or not. Enjoy it until someone special comes along.

  26. Thank you for sharing with us here at Tell me a Story. Being single has it's advantages, but then again so does being married ! May God grant you the desires of your heart.
