Call me a shit talker if you choose. I don’t really care. But I have to address something I see quite frequently.
The person in the relationship/marriage, but is always alone at events.
Please tell me what the purpose of having a life partner/spouse is, if you have to attend all said functions alone. I don’t understand the alone factor. I’m not saying you have to be connected to hips in life, but when you are always at events alone, why even have this person in your life? Isn’t life about sharing events together? You create memories together and enjoy life together and clearly, this isn’t being done if you aren’t with your partner at events.
Especially the relationships with zero kids and only one working partner. I see this myself.
We shall call them Colleen and Thomas.
Colleen doesn’t have kids. Colleen doesn’t work. Colleen is a struggling POTENTIAL business owner. Like she has her talents for the world to see but doesn’t pursue said talent for a living. Colleen stays home and Colleen passes time. Colleen complains about not having friends but ignores any invite to hang out. Colleen makes her life her partner, Thomas.
Thomas works over 40 hours a week. Thomas travels around for work. Thomas has friends and a social life. Thomas is a very personable guy. Thomas is willing to leave all that behind to support Colleens dreams of her potential business. Thomas moves away for her.
Sounds like a great love story. But my question is…why is it more than half the time I see Thomas out and with friends, Colleen isn’t around? And yet Thomas has to rearrange things like flights, and life schedules, to hold Colleen’s hand on adult things, such as not flying alone?
Maybe I was just single too long. Maybe I was forced to be the six toe on too many events. Maybe I don’t take little things for granted. But I know my Panda did many things solo being single. I did too. So I know what it is like to have to brave solo and I know that feeling. And I have made a promise to never let my Panda see a movie alone again. Or go to a work company event. We are life partners. We support each other. You never have to enter a social event alone again. Even if I don’t like it or don’t want to be there, that’s what I feel partners do. I don’t understand how something as simple as not standing by your partner is so easy to do.
And for fucks sake, show off that handsome/gorgeous piece of arm candy that you call your own every single chance that you get.
