I just read this article and it striked something worthy of a post here. 🙂
Single phobia (Click to read)
Years ago (when I was single) whenever someone approached me with the kind of questions “bila nak kahwin?” I would just glare at him/her and slap on an instant mask.
“Belum ada rezeki, kalau ada orang nak, dapatlah kad.”
Followed by a he he he (sengih kerang busuk).
It’s too bad that the society has an impression that matrimony is the be-all-and-end-all of existence.
Although it would be nice to have a partner, I have plenty of friends then and now, who are enjoying their singlehood and won’t trade their freedom for anything. My respect goes to anyone who wishes to keep their lives that way. Whenever I bring up the subject with them, it’s not to demote their preferred status quo. I would rather be with them than listen to incessant whines of someone with a miserable love-life. If you are happy, you are going to bring light to all those around you. If you are not, there’s no point marrying someone and make the worst out of that person, right?
At every turn of life, people will constantly pester you with “bila nak this, and bila nak that?” I hate the idea of building an institution for convenience-sake. I’m a sucker for love. You may think it’s easy for me to form an opinion just because I’m attached. I didn’t get myself attached without a series of heartbreaks. But I took my risk and have no regrets. My take on relationship is simple, *just be patient. And whatever you want will fall into place.* So to all the single ladies out there, the choice is yours, but you’ve got to be happy first before you take the plunge. Or else, just wait and see. Meanwhile, enjoy your Korean drama series, compile a library of chick-lits’ and shop to your hearts’ content!
