"My only beef with the singles is when they go on and on and on about how much better their life is than mine, how much more freedom they have etc. Or they act like I've somehow offended Gloria Steinem by getting married (I asked, she doesn't mind...and I've followed her for years thank you), etc. I respect your choice, now please respect mine. It's all about our choices, and our freedom to make them as we choose.
Oh, and don't brag to me about the wonders of single life, then in the next breath start kvetching that you need a date, does hubby have any nice friends, etc....."
I agree. It really made me mad when some coworkers (who were single) and I were talking about going out after work one night. I had some reservations about going, and one of them said "Oh, but you don't have that sort of freedom, what with your husband and all." Eh? Actually, that sort of comment makes me laugh - my sweet, mild-mannered husband is no warden!
And about the last comment above - that's one (of the many) reasons why I hated "Sex in the City." They were all "woo-hoo, we don't NEED MEN!" and then 20 minutes later, they'd complain about being alone.
