My Pledge To Remain Single

About five years ago I made a decision.  Well, I made a lot of decisions but one big one.  After a series of strange relationships and failed dates I decided that I would remain single for the rest of my life.  I didn’t plan to shun all women or stop dating completely.  I just realized that the chances of me finding a person to happily spend the rest of my life with were not very good.  So I stopped looking for that person.  I just went about my life and if the chance to date a woman presented itself, I would do so but I would have no expectations that it would evolve into anything lasting.

You know what?  It’s worked out pretty well for me.

I’ve stuck to my pledge, mostly.  I did make one exception, but that’s only because the girl was cool and funny and beautiful.  I’m referring to my wife, Dee.  She’s pretty awesome so you can see why I would make such an exception, but that’s the only exception I’ve made.  Otherwise, I’ve stayed completely single and I’m completely fine with it.  In fact, I’m pretty darn happy.

Who says you need someone else to be happy?

  1. Thank God you made that decision to let Dee be the exception- I don't think you'd be nearly as funny without her and then you'd never have met us and that would have been devasting for you, I know.
