there was a recent article on io9.com that living alone leads to an early grave. i won’t go into the detail of the article since you can read it for yourself, but as a single man who lives alone i am happy most of the time.
first off, i can do what i want when i want to do it and not worry about hurting my significant other. granted i may let my apt slip into a messy state, but it’s never dirty plates in the living room or glasses by the bed. for example, if i should clean my apt on tuesday, i let it go to thursday.
last week, i went to see prometheus on wednesday and mib 3 on thursday by myself. i didnt have to confirm plans with anyone or explain scenes from each of them.
today, i planned to see Beasts of the Southern Wild, but it was sold out. now if i was with someone, i’d have to call and tell them, then decide on new plans. instead i came home and went for a 2 hour bike ride with a dinner break in between. i had as much fun on my solo ride as i did with brian and kim this past weekend.
after i wrote this article, i rejoined match.com
