It's been a really long time since I posted to this site... I haven't had a lot to say about being single lately. Don't get excited, it's not because Mr. Right finally showed up... it's just been a time of quiet reflection and moving to a new place.
Those of you who know me personally (which is pretty much all of my readers), know that I've left the lovely country of Turkey and am now soaking up the sun of Singapore. It's a great, metropolitan city with people from all over the world living and working. There is a lot on offer here in regards to life but as I am finding out, little in regards to dating and finding a partner.
I've just been here for 3 months and I've already taken to terming it the dry spell of my dating life. There are plenty of attractive men, but there are also a plethora of gorgeous, thin women to catch the eyes of the men. While I don't diminish my own adorableness, it's just not the right fit for the men of Singapore. I've also really had a change of heart and M.O. when it comes to my single life, but more about that later... Truth is, I just haven't seen a lot of men that have caused me to look twice and those I have seen have either been married or with a woman when I saw them... so I have a feeling that SG will be a place for me to really focus on me and get my life together (not a bad thing... but makes SG just another stopping point instead of a home... but things could change, I'm open to it).
Now, about that change of heart. Since leaving Turkey and moving to Singapore, I've had less of a desire to date just to date. Previously, I felt like the right way, the best way to find Mr. Right was to date lots of different guys and figure it out. But lately, I just feel like it isn't worth the time and heart wasted (on failed relationships) to date around. I'm just not interested. I've had an offer or two, but wasn't feeling it so I just ignored it. I used to feel stressed about life passing me by and now I don't. Have I given up wanting to find my life partner, no... just the opposite, I feel more ready than ever to have that life, but I just don't think me running around chasing men is going to invite the RIGHT kind of man in my life. Instead, I want to have fun with my friends, do a great job at my career and build myself into the woman that I want and have Mr. Right want to chase after me.
So there you go... the latest in the life of the Chronically Single... finally delighting in life and really and truly not concerned about being single... it's a GREAT place to be.
