I’ve asked myself this often: “Is this blog keeping me single?”
But I’ve kept that little worry myself.
Recently, Jim — a charming, Jewish, divorced dad who often comments here — sent me an email, which made me look at this “single mom seeking” right in the mirror:
It has occurred to me that you may be violating one or more universal laws which prevent you from meeting that one special guy you claim to desire. Do you believe in the law of attraction and in universal laws in general (I’ll bet you do)?
Have you ever considered that your career and your life to a large extent is defined by being a single mom?
I am not saying that this is the reason you are still single, but it is definitely something to consider [for all I know there may be something seriously wrong with you… ]
But I doubt it.
You doubt it, Jim?
Well, you haven’t met me person yet, have you?
Seriously, by branding myself as a “single mom seeking,” have I doomed myself? I’d love to know how other single bloggers deal with this.
“Sometimes I wonder if being the quirkyalone lady will prevent me from finding a partner,” Sasha wrote to me in an email recently.
“I wonder if the outspokenness on my blog intimidates men. Am I just too honest? Do I give off the impression that I am completely content with being single?”
We both agreed that we feel ambivalent. On one hand, this is where we try to write honestly about our lives and relationships. On the other hand, we fear that we might be compromising ourselves — or scaring off men?
I’d love to hear from readers: Do you think this blog is keeping me single?
And I’d be honored to hear from men and women who blog about being single.
Do you think that your blog is keeping you single?
Here’s just a handful of bloggers whose brains I’d love to pick about this one!
And the rest of you, chime in!
Thanks to my friend Alan for taking this photo in Barnes and Noble!
