I was done! After years of feeling like I was the one at fault in dying relationships, I had decided to take a break from dating and chronicle my journey of Singledom. And this wasn’t something I would have told the guy with the rank breath sitting next to me on my commuter train, despite the cinematic Meg Ryan scenarios that played in my mind and his not-so-sly glances at my iPhone.
I had contemplated having a year of Singledom before my last breakup years ago, and after ending another “friendship,” I had finally decided to do it. I was done. I needed a break. After all, I figured it couldn’t hurt to concentrate fully on myself at the time – without guilt – for a year.
So with a big F-U I said, “Adios!” to the rank-breath-man on that train, the game-player and the married guy who still wasn’t sure where his life was taking him. I was done. I took my year.
Now that my year is over and gone, I can honestly say it was the best move I ever made. It was like finally trimming off the dead ends of my hair. Like finally sticking to the healthy fitness plan. Like finally buying those $200 jeans. I took the year off, and the whole world opened up to me. This was just the start of my journey. You’d be happy to know where I am now. I took that road less traveled, and yes, it made all the difference.
