Jen S forwarded me this article after our conversation on Sunday.  I was telling my dear Jen that I told another friend that she should marry for money, not love.  Is it because I regret marrying for love instead of money? NOOOO of course not.  But I see now how much easier relationships can be if you had money.  I”m sure not all relationships are like that, but I can’t help but to ponder about these things, when I look at some women who married “up”.  Did they marry for love or did they marry for money?  And why do their lives seem so much easier than mine?  Is it wrong for me to question these things?  Probably….

In this article by the lady named Lori Gottlieb called “Marry Him”, gives you a profound and dauntingly honest view on marriage and relationships for the single ladies.   She tells you to settle because that’s better than being alone and being miserable.  She actually gives pretty decent support for her theory and rationale behind why she feels this way.  I have to say after reading this lengthy article, I think I totally agree with her on this one.   Would Rachel have been more satisfied in life with Barry instead of her on-again/off-again Ross?  Would Carrie have been more stable with Aiden than Mr. Big, the man who abandoned her countless times?  These are really awesome questions!

I guess that may be contradictory to my religious belief.  But I don’t think God wants us to sit around and wait for Mr. Perfect and put your life on a complete “hold” status or be in and out of dysfunctional relationships either…..

Saw this article on TIME titled, “Why Exercise Won’t Make You Thin“.  And it made me really curious since John and I were thinking about starting a P90X this week.  And trust me, the biggest reason why we are doing this is because we want to be thin.  Should I even bother at this point?

Saw this article called “A Chili Sauce to Crow About,” in NYTIMES.  It says that Sriracha has more than 120,000 fans on Facebook.  That’s how you know you’ve arrived in the world!

Bunch of friends forwarded me this article from CNN, asking me to write about it because they felt like the truth needed to be told.  And although this concept/theory does not apply to all single women and of course there are plenty happy single women out there, apparently there plenty of these types of women out there as well. 

And YES, I know some single women who are just MISERABBBLLLLLEEEEEE.  And because they are hating life, they try to make others feel their pain and smear s*** on the fact that I’m married and relatively happy for most part.   Maybe  they just need to get “some” or maybe they need to find a way to redirect their energy and attention to something other than their job and close friends, because it’s really frustrating being around these types of women and it’s completely emotionally draining!

Are all married women happy? Of course not.  Look at our national divorce rate.  Am I always happy of course not.  But I don’t try to manipulate every situation, over think every conversation, and pretend to be something that I am clearly not. 

ps.  the pix of natasha bedingfield at a concert in AC last year that I went to.  she seemed super happy to be single but here’s a song that she wrote that made me think about these types of women!

I’m sure we could use some “positive” news about the internet and how people are using this to actually help others right?  I mean, although I’ve personally sat through, not just one, but bunch of  “To Catch a Predator” marathons, how many more “a girl runs away from home to meet a creepo she met online” stories can we all take? 

So I read this article on NYTimes this morning on my commute this morning and it actually brought smile to my face.  It was titled Lost in the Real World, Found via Cyberspace.”
