Single, Party of One

Lately I look around and all I see are happy couples. I'm not sure if it's because Spring has sprung, but everywhere I look, they're holding hands, kissing, or some other version of rubbing my nose in their happiness (yes, I realize this isn't their sole intent, but that's just how I take it). I'm surprised Sammy doesn't have a little girlfriend - that would really be the final straw. The other day I was trolling around FB and noticed that the name of an old friend of mine from Utah had expanded - she now has three names instead of two. Curious, I looked into it (married!) and then looked up the rest of my single friends left in Utah - sure enough, ALL of them are now either married and/or engaged. It's like an epidemic!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not begrudging their happiness or wishing I was somehow under lock and key again (read: married), because I'm not. I'm quite happy with my life and my work and how everything is playing out. Sure, sometimes I wish I had that person to have debriefs with at the end of day, but overall I'm doing well. I don't need the drama. I don't need the stress. I have the rest of my life to be tied down if I so choose and right now is a time for me to be a bit selfish. Still....all these freaking couples - especially the ones walking on the beach - really need to scram. They're cramping my style.
