Do single people cram their lives full?

"Sadness is beautiful, loneliness is tragical."

Backstreet Boys, circa 2000

For those of you who don't know me, I'm being ironic here quoting a boy band, but I do think they have a point... I've noticed the differences in my life when I'm with boy and without. It's nothing to do with having time for friends (if you're a good mate you'll be there single or not).

Single people, from my observations, seem to have endless plans over the weekend and are out every night (I put myself in this category) whereas coupled up are good to chill at home even if it's alone or spend the weekend without their other half happy in the knowledge someone else out there is thinking about them.

Of course, being party girl or party boy is fun and interesting but is it some sort of cover up? A mirage to mask the loneliness that comes with not having anyone to say good night to, or to moan to or to care how your day was.

There aren't any prospects of dates on the horizon and I've already started jamming my life so full I can hardly think and I worry in some way it's because I want to hide the loneliness. Of course lots of people revel in singledom but a little part of me says if you're single you're most likely to be heartbroken pining after someone else or lonely, avoiding thinking about being without a special someone.

Right, best call the girls for a drink. Don't wanna sit at home alone tonight with my ready meal.


  1. different types of people recharge differently though. I go mad if I have more than 2 nights at home in a row, unless i've got friends over naturally.

    I still cram my weeks and weekends full but make Georgi part of those plans. I probably do go out less, but only because there were certain things I used to do just because there was a prospect of meeting single women involved... :)

  2. Don't be so bloody pathetic! I know a ton of single girls and that are happy and comfortable with their own company - to suggest otherwise is offensive and archaic.
