5 things I hate about being single

1.)You feel viciously jealous when the phones of your friends keep ringing left,right and centre and you look gloomily at yours trying to think of the last time you heard your own ring-tone.

2.)When people(read lovey-dovey couples) are most likely dressing up for a date on Sunday you end up watching some shitty Bollywood flick(nothing better was on tv) with your mom because you're tired of watching movies alone on your pc.

3.)You get tagged along with your friend and her boyfriend on their shopping excursion(even though you had tried to wriggle out of it citing numerous lame excuses) and end up pretending to be invisible when they are having one of their 'us' moments.

4.)You have to come up with silly sms-es to forward to all your contacts to exhaust your sms balance that has somehow managed to remain half unused even 25 days after you got that promo.




5.)The last and obvious reason-you feel LONELY dammit! :(



5 things I love about being single

1.)Your tiny little world which had previously only housed both of you suddenly grows larger and your clouded vision becomes crystal clear.Now you can 'see' things that previously your eyes were blind to(like for example how good-looking a guy in your college is :P)

2.)You don't have to think of lame excuses for being late,forgetting to call...yada yada.You get the point right?You suddenly become free as a bird.



3.)When a random hot guy checks you out in a shopping-mall you can totally stare back without experiencing any pangs of guilt. *evil grin*

4.)You don't have to bother with remembering important dates or worrying about gifts,cards and other trifles.

5.)And the reason why I love single life the most...
You get lots and lots of 'me' time for doing things that you couldn't do while you
were with him-like finishing with 8 romance novels in a week(and actually enjoying reading them) or cutting your hair short(something he didn't approve of).


P.S: I'm working on a story that I'm gonna post soon enough but meanwhile why
don't you people read this post?(well if you're reading this line then you've already read it I guess -_-)Hopefully it will lighten your mood. :P

P.P.S:The idea has been borrowed from Aparna's (a talented writer)blog but the feelings are solely mine and based on personal experiences.

rofl... Was laughing while i continue to read this....and yes, they are true, and also, getting to have a lot of 'me time' is probably the very important thing....keep rocking :-)

Manju said...

Lol. what i hate the most are the freakin annoying ppl who ask you why you're single, as if you're deranged. well duhh i'm single and fabulous and that's by choice coz i've got standards. they should get a life

Guria said...

Hey It is always better being single than being with the wrong guy! :D

And whenever the first five happens, I can give you an advice: Put on an enigmatic smile (something like Da Vinci's MonaLisa) and a superior look! Works every time! :)

Cheers!! ^_^

P.S. I just can't read ebooks but I wish... :P
Thanks girl! You take care?

Nightwing said...

i totally agree with the entire post.....way way better to be single and happy...than be with someone who is not your type and be unhappy all the time...

btw,8 romantic novels a week can make anyone throw up....yuck!!!!!

SiMbA tAgO said...

every time u write sth.. i jus appreciate it.. its sop good... m single too.. but i think being in the commitment has its own flavors...and its really lovely to ask for excuses when ur late..really awesome...

Samadrita said...

@Ranjith:Haha glad you enjoyed it. :P

@Manju:Tell me about it.And some people won't even believe you're single and ask you the same question again and again using various tactics. :X

@Guria:I know.But you'd break up only if you were with the wrong guy right?
And I love being single really...except the occasional mood swings of course. :P
You too take care!

Samadrita said...

@Writu:Hehe well about the looking at a good-looking guy in college part...that bit was kind of made-up.
Hot guys in our college?...that's a good joke isn't it? :P

@Nightwing:Yea I know.And somehow I feel that romance novels make good reads when you're single.
AND THEY DO NOT MAKE YOU THROW UP. :X except maybe some which are way too mushy-mushy....

@SiMbA tAgO:I think being in a relationship kind of sucks most of the times.Life's better without any shackles.And thanks :)

Aditya said...

hehe that was hilarious-especially the random hot guy and stare back line :P ...

keep writing :D

wisewit said...

Well, I kind of agree with Nightwing about romance novels, but I'm not going to push the point. I really want to to say something about #3 in the first part. . . . There was this girl a few years ago who was sort of interested in me, only, partway on, she got a crush on some other guy but kept insisting that she wasn't all that interested in him and was really more interested in me (Yeah right!). I had a hard time getting her to let go of me until one time when she and the other guy were going to give me a ride home. I'd been through that once before and really didn't want to ride in the back seat while they were having their own conversation in the front, so I said, "No, don't bother, I'll just walk!" Well, it was late at night in a not particularly safe part of town and that was a half-hour walk. They must have thought I was crazy, but she finally let go of me! :) The amazing thing is that were're still friends--although I don't talk to her all that often.

As a Con! --- Whats up with the world!! Why is it upside down??

Aparna said...

samadrita....let's join the single's club !

Samadrita said...

@Aditya:Lol it's good to know you liked it.Thanks :)

@wisewit:Well I don't mean to sound rude or anything but your lady friend is sorta weird don't you think?I mean what kind of a girl tells a guy she's not 'all that interested' in another man and more interested in him?
For God's sake....make up your mind first.
Anyway good to know that atleast you're friends now. :)

@Mural!-Well I didn't quite get your point.Can you explain please?

Samadrita said...

@Aparna:I'm already in it girl! :) :P

Akansha Agrawal said...

Aha... loads of reasons to get a boyfriend... ;) and even more to stay away from one, till you find the right one of course... ahh confusing!! :P

But till we are single, it rocks... ;)

Samadrita said...

@Akansha:Yea absolutely.Single life gives one so much more freedom.

Yadayada said...

hahaha, definitely made my day ;)

Sid 'Ravan' Kabe said...

Oh awesome...u have noted down the points precisely...

not to mention..sometimes u have to watch Soutie flicks poorely dubbed in hindi becos hindi films remind u of loved ones!!!

yenna rascalla...


btw... u r tagged...

Deeps!! said...

I loved it!! and to be in a similar position i totally relate to it!! I'm joining you and aparna in the single's club!!

Samadrita said...

@Yadayada:I'm glad to know that! :)

@Sid:Lol I'd rather drown myself in a bucketful of water than watch those Southern pot-boilers. :P
Ok I'll work on the tag soon enough then. :)

@Deeps!!:Hehe welcome to the club. :)

atindriyo said...

Aye !

wisewit said...

Just to be fair to that lady (and I really should try), she didn't actually use those words. I was trying to summarize the drift of several conversations over an extended period of time. I could say more, but since that girl is still a friend, I probably shouldn't. Anyway, things are OK between her and me now (meaning we're "just friends"), so it doesn't really matter.

Mural! said...

Well the fourth point is a good con for guys.....but for gals......eye-opening!

then why should we be worried about remembering all the insignificant dates :D

Karthik said...

8 romantic novels, did you say? Mills n Boon, i guess. :P Yucky!
Well, on the contrary i admire you, coz' one needs lots of guts and bravery and what not to read such books and that too 8 in a week.. Phew.. :P
Coming to the post, i had tremendous fun reading it. I'd never thought about pros and cons of being single until I read this. Maybe because I'm still busy having crushes, so practically I might be single, but theoretically I'm not.. :D
On a serious note, your blog is fabulous and so are your write-ups. Will visit again soon to read more.. Cheerios! :-)

Samadrita said...

@Mural!-Ah okay.Well this is just how I feel.Donno about other women.
I'm a li'l insensitive no? :P

@Karthik-Okay why do all men hate romance novels so much? :X
And no they weren't Mills n Boons but Harper Collins books and I enjoyed reading them.You know some romance novels aren't all that mushy.Try Nicholas Sparks and find out for yourself.
Anyway thanks for those kind words abotu my blog and do come again.Stay in touch! :)
