I have lost count of the amount of weddings I’ve been to over the years. Up until last night, the last one was about 3 years ago and there was not one single man there- none!
Getting ready for the latest wedding event, I suddenly thought
‘I might be the last single person left. What if the bride calls for the single ladies to catch the bouquet and it’s just me?!’
I tried to prepare myself for that moment and to find the courage to strive forward with conviction that I was single and proud. Luckily that moment never came. The bride didn’t throw her bouquet so we never had to find out who was still single. Let’s face it, why give away a gorgeous bouquet and the girl that catches it never gets married next!
I’ve written my own single vows.
I promise that I will never feel like half a person as I don’t have a partner.
I will take every opportunity to try new things, seek adventure, make new friends and enjoy the freedom that single life allows.
I will always love my baby, Sophie the dog, no matter how bad she smells and keep trying to find the source of her numerous allergies.
I will set myself up for success so that I can’t be a failure.
I’ve also imagined my partners vows! Yep, that’s what happens after hearing so many other people declare their love for each other’s little annoying personal traits or cute couple habits.
