I am because I choose to be

When did meeting somebody or going on a date become so complicated. What happened to the days of the boy calling your house phone and asking you to go to a dinner and movie on Friday night without all the mind games.

What the heck is wrong with a girl if she doesn't fall for all those stupid pick up lines guys use now a days. Just because a girl is single that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with her. What happened to having standards and not settling for less than you deserve. I am sure part of it has to do with what girls are looking for now a days. I hate to break the news to you sweetie, but you can't keep complaining about all the guys you find if you are not looking for the right qualities.

If you do happen to be one of those few who do not settle then you get hassled with all kinds of questions. Y'all know what I am talking about, you have all been there. Why are you still single? When are you getting married? Do you just not like being in a relationship? Oh you must be one of those girls who are more interested in school than boys? Well to answer all your questions....

I am single because I choose to be.
Not because I am not interested in a
relationship or busy with school,
but because I choose not to settle for less than I deserve.
I choose to wait for the guy that makes me the better me.
I know what I want in a guy and
I am not going to settle until I find exactly that.
Believe me, you should never underestimate
the power of a girl who knows what she wants.

My friend Miss Football had a great blog answering all those questions and that oh so familiar phrase you hear, "Hang in there girl and you will find somebody soon." She summed it up perfectly by saying, "I don't need to hang in there, I need a guy who can hang on and keep up." 


  1. Couldn't have said it better myself!! I deal with this all the time!!

  2. Love this, Lauren! You're so right!! You are amazing and deserve someone equally so. I love your line "I choose to wait for the guy that makes me the better me." Amen, sister!
