A Male Fairy Tale:
Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful princess, "Will you marry me?"
The Princess said, "NO!"
and the Prince lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and had sex with skinny big breasted chicks and hunted and fished and raced cars and went to naked bars and dated women half his age and drank whiskey, beer and Captain Morgan and never heard bitching and never paid child support or alimony and kept his house and guns and never got cheated on while he was at work and all his friends and family thought he was cool as hell and he had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up.
I find it very amusing)) Especially being the 'princess' who said 'no' a few times. I do believe I did those 'princes' a favor by refusing. Not that I'm sure they're all leading exactly as happy a life as described above , but I'm almost sure whatever life they're having is still better than it would have been with me in it.
I had those 'episodes' when I believed that maybe I'd actually enjoy living 'happily ever after' with someone, but I kept getting back to my predominant state of being happy without what they call 'a committed relationship'.
Toilet seat was never an issue though. I never understood why they make such a big deal about it. Ridiculous.
But besides my tolerance for any position of a toilet seat, I don't have much of it for lots of other stuff. I like things to be a certain way. The only difference between me and 'the marrying type' women is that I prefer the solution of living alone to living with someone and bitching about everyday life issues.
I love being a singe woman. I probably wouldn't have, had it not been a choice. But luckily, it is.
Being financially independent and single is one of the best things in my life. It is exciting.
The funniest quote I've heard so far on marriage for women is "When a girl marries she exchanges the attention of many men for the inattention of one" by Helen Rowland.
