This is article 4 in the series, “Celebrating Singleness”:
It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it’s not a pretty thing. Every blue moon the question is asked (either by myself or by someone else) “Why am I not married?” So let’s start in with the excuses…

The funny thing is, I have actually used most of these excuses (except the ones about having fun and getting established — that has never been a requirement) and most of them are just fake. It’s almost like we make them up for not other reason than just to get done talking about it and move on. It’s like we have to satisfy some excuse god so we can maintain a balanced xi or something.
Really, though, get real. I’m not going to tell you why I’m not married. I’m sure there are reasons that I don’t even know. Until I figure all them out, I’m going to invent the most interesting, thought provoking excuses to throw you off and entertain you so we can move on to another conversation topic.
Oh, and how many times have I heard this old song and dance from my married family and friends…

Why do married people “worry” about single people? Really… I’m just fine. I promise. If I need something off of a high shelf, I just get a ladder.
I just absolutely love this show.
