First of all, thank you for reading my previous post. I really hope the message I was trying to send was clear. Ironically, only one person posted a comment haha...
Secondly, in my attempt to share different resources, anecdotes, and research, I want to make sure that the different groups of individuals within my audience are being addressed. So, as you sit back, drink your morning coffee, and wait anxiously for the clock to chime "freedom," let me share something with you. This is something for all us singles, especially all of you that are recently single. This is something that I communicated to someone I am very close with, and I saved it. At the time, she just got out of a long relationship, but has since reconciled, and is even happier.

So, that's some of my own advice for singles, and especially for newly singles (after all, you are "single and ready to mingle").
But since we're on the topic... I have some things i want to ask, perhaps even verging on contentious. I'm going to ask, and feel free to respond. You can comment as yourself, or anonymously, but just remember: it's ok to be single. It's ok to NOT be married by 30. It's ok to live your life. It's ok to have a career. And it's ok to want someone. To long for someone. Never let anyone rob you of your own desires.
- How long have you been single?
- Do you like being single?
- Do you want to be single?
- What do you think are the pros and cons to single life?
- What are the obstacles to single life in Lebanon or wherever else you are from?
- What kinds of pressure are put on individuals that are single, both in Lebanon and outside?
Spread the love,
