    If I could choose, I would say because of Ben & Jerry's. But I'm eating pints of ice cream whether I'm single or not, so...

    I like to think that I'm a character in a tv show that's being watched in another world.
    Are these my thoughts or is this part of the script? I don't know.

    I'm single because I have a lock on crazy, and I just don't care to compete with someone to see who is nuttier.

    I am NOT emotionally complex. I'm just crazy. Probably crazy enough to need to be caught with a net and taken away to a place where I am never seen again, but they ain't caught me yet ;-)

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    My grandson informed me that I am too young to date, and then he tried to fix me up with an old widowed man he met in the park.

    Because I have no idea how to talk to women. I just try and have normal conversations, but apparently that's far too boring for most women.

    Apparently because I did not follow the instructions of a chain letter I received in middle school. I've been going through my things, and found a letter that read "If you will copy this letter and give to five different girls in five days, at the end of the week, a boy will either say he loves you or wants to go out with you. Here are the rules: (1) do not tell any boys about this letter (2) do not give this letter to the same girl more than once (3) if you do not follow the directions, a boy will not tell you he loves you or wants to go out."

    On the outside of it, I had written "Who cares?"

    Oh, how short sighted I was in the seventh or eighth grade! Condemned to singleness due to breaking the chain.

    Ben & Jerry's would probably be fine, but there are several chocolate-making companies (national and local) that would suffer terrible financial losses if I wasn't single!

    Seriously, I think that I'm still single because I'm fiercely independent. I have a younger sibling with special needs and so growing up, my way of helping my family was to take care of myself as much as possible. Add in jobs that have put me in leadership roles, and I tend to be pretty self-sufficient. Unfortunately, some of the guys that I have dated have had a problem with this. I've been trying to work on being more accepting of help, but it's a fine line for me because I'm proud of being a strong, independent woman.

    I once told someone to give them their blood. Then they called the cops on me.

    why am I single??? hmmm good question.
    I don't have an answer but very good question indeed,someday I may have an answer,but most likely I'll get that answer when I'm married so I won't be able to answer it because I won't be single,so I guess either way you will just never know the answer!

    I just tell them I haven't met the very right person. Then maybe they think I'm a little picky. I don't want to settle for someone who I don't love and who doesn't love me. Now, let's turn our eyes on Jesus.
