The search begins

So, I've been thinking about this!! I work in a big City and must pass thousands of men a day. Now I'm not blinkered and do look around at people but maybe notice 2 men a week that I think 'yeah, hes attractive'. Now what are the chances that those 2 men are available? Slim to none, thats the chances. So my question is, at what point do you lower your standards and just settle for what you can get??

I am in my early twenties, but yet all but one of my friends are in a relationship and some of those have been in relationships with the same guys for 5 or 6 years. One set of friends have a mortgage, another is expecting a baby and all the others are just longing for one or both of those things.
Please don't be mistaken in to thinking that I want neither of these things one day. The truth is that I do. However, to have these things I need to start with a boyfriend first.
So, the search begins......

xx single girl xx

Here we are, day one of blogging!! Woohoo, get me ;) I've decided to blog and share my experiences of life as a single girl. I'm pretty sure that there are lots of you out there (somewhere? anywhere?) although all those smug 'in a relationship' types would have you think your some kind of freak of nature.

It's funny really, you get to a certain age (which is not THAT old) and suddenly you look around you and see friends with mortgages and babies and suddenly realise that everyone is doing the dreaded S word.....settling down!! But what about me?? I don't want all these things, so why do people still look at me like I'm some sort of sad act?? Family members start saying things like 'when are we going to get to meet your boyfriend....or girlfriend'!! HANG ON ONE MINUTE, just because I'm single it does not mean that I am gay!!

Maybe, just maybe, I don't want to be commited to monthly mortgage repayments, or to have to start living on a shoe string budget. I don't want to be up 7 times during the night because my baby is sick. I want to live like a girl in her early 20's, ALRIGHT?? There's just one small problem....... theres no one left to live like that with me because they are all 'growing up' and living life alone isn't much fun.......
