so you're 25(ish) and single?

First things first. Do y'all remember "The Cheater" from this post?
Well, apparently  he didn't think the nickname I gave him appropriately described the situation. He's kindly asked me to change his pseudonym to "The Womanizer" or "The Player". So there you have it, you womanizer you, get on with your bad self.
 
Anyway, last night Steph (my roomie) and I were watching The Bachelor when one of the girls went into hysterics after being sent home. She was going on and on about never finding a husband and ending up alone, a bit melodramatic if you ask me. That's when Steph and I realized that homegirl was OUR AGE, which we believe is still pretty young.
 
Clearly girlfriend didn't realize all the perks that come with being 25(ish) and single. So, in honor of all my single ladies out there, we've decided to compile a list of all the reasons why it rocks to be 25(ish) and single...
 
+You're allowed to be selfish, about anything and everything (also known as, "I do what I want" syndrome = IDWIWS).
 
+You get the entire bed to yourself (and the puppies of course) every night. No fighting over the covers, or listening to snoring.
 
+You're free to stare at and flirt with as many guys as you want. On that same note, you can go on all the dates (good or bad) that you want!
 
+Not in the mood to be charming? No worries. You don't have to shave your legs or ditch the granny panties if you don't feel like it.
 
+Going to happy hour, having a drink (or five), and being home by 8pm is totally acceptable. No matter what day of the week it is. Blame it on the IDWIWS.
 
+Dinner time means you're free to cook/not cook, go out/stay in, wash dishes, or not wash dishes, as you please.
 
+You can pin as many "wedding ideas" on Pinterest as you want. Lucky for you, it's another milestone you still get to look forward to.
 
+Want a change of scenery? You can pack up, move, change jobs or cities without thinking twice. You're not tied down yet.
 
So, while we obviously don't want to be single forever, it's not so bad right now. Enjoy it, because we sure are, and have a drink (or three) for us!

I love how he thinks those are "better" than The Cheater! Great list :)

This one had me laughing out loud!! First off, the Cheater can change his name to The Pope, and he'd still be a cheater. What a turd. Secondly, I watch the Bachelor, too, and all those girls there are so much more enamored with getting married than they are with being in love with THE RIGHT GUY. Sure, Sean's hot and successful and whatever. But there's a lot of those out there and HE may not be the one for you!! The Bachelor is all that is fascinating and wrong with the world. Too bad I can't stop watching it every week. LOL. LOVED THIS POST!

One of my favorite posts. ;)

It's crazy on those dating shows how paranoid those girls get that they'll never get married! Some of them are 23! I never at 23 felt that way! They need to suck it up and go to happy hour!

Amy said...

Not gonna lie, while I of course want to meet my husband in the semi-near future, I am LOVING being single in my 20s!! It's the best! And I'm making SUCH strong friendships, because I can spend as much time as I want with my girlfriends!

Love the list :)

I have friends my age (21) who I have heard CRY because they aren't married yet or in a serious relationship. And here I am, like "YEH FUCKIN RIGHT" when my boyfriend brought up marraige last night. I have shit to conquer! People are in way too huge of a rush.

Sam said...

Sometimes I wish I were single so I could engage in some IDWIWS activities LOL

Southern Sass said...

AMEN! Found your blog on The Browse. New follower :)

Sami said...

Too funny! I just did a post like this two weeks ago! There are some great benefits to being single :)

lo @ crazy ever after said...

I met my husband when I was 25. I was deep in the throes of I Do What I Want syndrome. But the funny thing? I'm
29 and pretty much still in the throes of it. The key is being with a guy who doesn't ever stop letting you do what you want. Now. When kids enter the picture...I'm sure those sweet little assholes will have other plans. ;) Found ya through The Browse. Good stuff.

julia rose. said...

Lori said...

Love this list. It's definitely ageless though because those all work for me and I'm not 25 anymore! :)

Claire Kiefer said...

I say embrace it! I was single throughout most of my 20s and didn't start dating my boyfriend till I turned 30. My 20s were FUN and I wouldn't have had it any other way.

Lindsey said...

I love this post!

I haven't read The Cheater post yet, but I'm just about to. And I love the reasons being single rocks, especially the first one. I'm guilty of having IDWIWS!
