Oy! I’m a statistic!
NEWS FLASH!!! According to recent accounts, there are 96 million people in America who are single! To put it another way 43% of people over 18 donâ€™t have mates. And yours truly is one of them.
Frankly, being part of the great uncoupled is a horrid proposition. (YES, I get plenty of those!) After my divorce 25 years ago, I was certain wedding bells would be ringing for me within a year. Well, the bells rang for my former husband, but theyâ€™ve remained silent for me.
I have no regrets about the dissolution of my 25 year marriage, but being a single woman really sucks. According to the approach put forward by feminists and liberated women, I should be reveling in my freedom. Iâ€™m not. Sharing a life with a beloved partner is, for me, one of the greatest blessings on Earth. I wonder how many of the 96 million out there share my view.
So, with this vile statistic staring me in the face, I decided to create a mantra to help magnetize my man:
â€œA beautiful relationship with my beloved is about to manifestâ€
I hope it works for me, and if/when it does, Iâ€™ll let you know. Then, if you chose to lower that percentage, go ahead and do so. Iâ€™m with ya!
