Do single people have better stories?

While persuing my list of daily reads, there are always a few that peak my interest more than others simply because of the people who are behind these sites. Quite often, their lives are full of interesting experiences that perk my brain into reading more, and knowing more about them.

And, they’re usually single.

Because they don’t – normally – have the additional responsilities of partners/spouses/children, they’re able to live their lives for themselves. It may sound selfish, but they’re single, not martyrs.

At the drop of a hat, they’re able to do what they want and go where they please, without having to check in. You read of great parties, dating horrors, amazing trips, and all of the fabulous people associated with them. You can just imagine them regaling others at a soiree with tales of their escapades. It’s like a Jackie Collins novel coming to life.

It’s not to say that those who are coupled/married are bores. They tend to go on about the same things, and most of them involves their families (and mortgages - yawn). Personally, I find a poo story or renovation-gone-wild excerpt more entertaining than someone’s weekend of binge drinking.

Of course, those that I do read, I read them for a reason. They are interesting in their own way. If I didn’t like them, I wouldn’t read them, at all.

Single, or not single, it’s all a wash in the end. No matter your relationship status, if you’re boring, you’re boring. And, that's even worse than being married.

Well, I'm not single, and my life is kinda boring sometimes, but I would take boring over screaming children any day.

And I want to know what blogs you read because I know you have good taste.

Swear to God, I should just post a list of names of sites I visit that I enjoy. LOL.

Will that mea culpa stop the litany of e-mails?

You're right - boring is boring and I try not to be. Good writing can make even the most mundane tale lively, but we all have our own taste which leads to some loving Charles Dickens, others Stephen King, and still others in a steamy Danielle Steele.

I for one enjoy my periodic bits of Steven.

I know plenty of boring people who are single.

True, they may have a bit more freedom than your standard married person,but that doesn't mean they have more fun.

Life is what you make it...single or not!
