s1ngal’s How-to Stay Cool

15 Oct
  • If you want to stay single by choice, you must be absolutely as insane as me.
  • If you want to stay single because someone’s ditched/ dumped/ cheated on/ betrayed you, then I’m sorry for you but being single may not suit you.
  • If you want to stay single thinking it’s cool, then hell you’re right… and I’ll show you how.

First and foremost, you must think it’s cool to stay single. It is cool and cold. You become the “cold one”, not as cold as the Cullen Family I guess. I mean people will consider you cold and you must convince yourself that cold means cool. By now if you’re not convinced about the cool pack your bags and run to Alaska and just understand *cool* or row to the Arctic (if that’s what it takes). Now think – …how easy it is to just pack and go… Know why? Because you’re single. Now you get my point, don’t you? Duh.

The Coolest *Cold ones* ever 😀

Second reason it’s cool to be single is well… you’re always available. Especially for the hot ones. I mean, imagine being married [or in a relationship] and just then someone as hot and steamy walks up to you to warm that cold-ness you’ve so much prized… Sizzling… innit? So yea, being single leaves you ready to mingle. Ready as in when YOU are ready. How wonderful is that? Because trust me, as long as you’re single, there’s always a hope… a hope of someone really amazing bumping into you anytime, anywhere, anywhen and then sweeping you off your feet. 

I can spend all my life in singlehood, hoping to bump into him…

Reason number three: You can be broke and still be okay. It’s okay to be broke when you’re single because you can just sit it out – sit everything out. You can be home where you can be single OR you can be out and still be single. See??? No pressure!! If you’re too broke and you DO get kicked out of your rented apartment, crash in anywhere. Remember the *pack and go* benefit from the First reason. You can practically live off your suitcase. There, no pressure.

suitcase – your home!!!

Fourth reason why it’s great to be single is because it’s really great to be single. Wondering why? Well you can always dress to kill… Yes, you can always wear that low-neck very-revealing flimsiest-ever top/dress – the ones that your ever-jealous boyfriend/ ever-insecure husband would have NEVER approved of, yes the ones that make them jump and reach out for a stole to cover your assets. Darn!! Do you still not want to be single?

NO pho’os here, I’ll let your imagination do the talking :apologises profusely:

And now… Just Because, and only because I want this post to go in *MY5* category, am I going to present you the fifth and the FINAL reason why you should be single.

Need I say more…?

“She has been ranked the richest African-American of the 20th century… She is also, according to some assessments, the most influential woman in the world”. For more info –> go on wiki Oprah Winfrey and get inspired 😀

Meant to be

25 Jul

….there I was in the boarding school, looking up to the single Head Mistress and getting inspired to be single.

Along came my teenage years and it was as if I was meant to be nothing but s1ngle. I began worshiping who else but the one and only Oprah (to find out later – in my life – that she doesn’t believe in the “institution of marriage”).


However, I DO believe in the institution of marriage. It’s just that out of thousands of role-models to choose from, I couldn’t (still can’t) believe I found it in Oprah. Undoubtedly she is an ultimate success story of rags to riches, girl power and all that jazz. For me, she (or her life) is actually synonymous to a “second chance” or a “hope”.

She is one woman who, through her show, has (indirectly) been responsible for who/ what I am today. The fact remains that I didn’t look up to her because she was single. I looked up to her and she turns out not to believe in “marriage” (apparently making her single) – all adds to the fact that I am destined to be s1ngle 🙂
