I think it is amazing that you are not waiting for someone to complete your life. I am happily married and I still wait something or other to happen to be happy. It really doesn't matter whether you are single married divorced as long as you are happy with yourself. Only I am in charge of my happiness. funny why i don't do enough to make me happy

I came your blog courtesy of The Happiness Project and am so happy to have found it. I, too, am a single, 37-year-old Virgo living in a major city (though on the other coast). Several ideas have been percolating in my head (a big move? more school? single motherhood?) and, frankly, I often feel they are too big to consider seriously. I say good for you for making this decision -- it will definitely be difficult but very rewarding. I wish you much joy!

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
