This is My Psychosis
“My bed is too big, I need a man!”
This line is not from a movie or a famous play or song. It came from my dearest aunt. I share her sentiment and although we both make jokes about our status in life, we both secretly wish we had a love life. We both want our men. Unfortunately, we’re drawing blanks.
Ah, you should hear my grandmother talk to me about my love life and she never fails to ask me “How come you’re still unmarried?” or “Your cousin already has children…” and the like. I just laugh it off and tell myself that God has a plan. But, I know that God will not do things alone -He will of course, hear my prayers. Well, I think one of these days, He will just send down an angel and tell me “Koi, He says that you are too picky and your standards are too high!”
Now, wouldn’t that be a laugh trip, huh?
So, I’m 31 and still single. Yes, I don’t have a suitor or a boy toy. No, I’m not a lesbian and I don’t do one night stands. I get indecent proposals from people because they look at my boobs before they look at my eyes. I turn them down. I don’t believe in sex outside a committed relationship. I don’t like dumb guys. I don’t like men with too much muscle. I do like nerds and funny guys. Am I particular when it comes to looks? Not THAT particular but in a way- Yes! I would like to actually like what I am seeing. I put more weight in intelligence and ambition than a great set of abs and a killer smile. Yes, i’m picky! picky! picky!
What is wrong with that? I mean, if it’s the only reason why I am still single now, at this point in my life, then I think life is being a little bit cruel! I’m sorry but I don’t believe that an ugly duckling should settle for an ugly partner. Besides, tell me a pretty good reason why I should settle for less?
