Being Single Means Shaving Your Legs Is Optional

Sandra Prior

Friday, 5.00pm. I close down my computer and leopard crawl out of the office lest someone spots me and ruins my big night out. Yip. I am going to be spending time with six funny friends, seven if you include the bottle of Merlot, and yes, I do. Where might she be off too, you wonder? A club, some fancy dinner? Even a hotly contested game of 30 seconds. No, I am not heading for a big night out, but a big night in. Those 'friends' are Friends, the show. And you know what, I can't wait.

Not every girl wants to be out every Friday night painting the town red. Sometimes they just want a couch, TV and a guy to snuggle up to.

Being a single girl is not easy. My friends and I, 80% of whom are single (what's that saying, birds of a feather...), are always complaining that there are no good, straight men out there. But out there is the one place we ain't going. We go to each other's houses, drink wine, watch DVDs, sometime play Trivial Pursuit - always a highlight - and wonder why we are alone.

Sure, every now and then one of them breaks rank and hit a club or bar. Yes, they often get hit on, not always by a McDreamy, or even a McSteamy, but nice guys nonetheless. I too could meet such men, but that would require me venturing out the front door. Now don't get me wrong. I'm not averse to having fun. Yes, even fun that doesn't involve general knowledge questions.

It's just that after a long week of battling the forces of darkness at work, all I want to do on a Friday night is get into my pajamas and collapse on the couch for some brainless downtime. When I go out, coerced by a well meaning colleague worried about the only single girl in the office, I make the effort, get dressed up and hit the town. Okay, the local neighborhood bar, but hey, it's 'out'. Here's the thing; maybe I don't want to meet anyone - out there. Wait, hear me out.

Being single isn't that bad. The shaving of your arms and legs and down there becomes optional. Getting out of your old tracksuit pants or even washing off yesterday's make-up becomes unimportant. Also, I can eat all my favorite foods, without fear of having an orange tartrazine smile or garlic breathe. My free time is taken up by naps, reading and watching TV, all from the comfort of my couch.

But if I'm honest, really honest, Id like a big, strong guy to eat Chinese takeaway with me, share that bottle of vino and yes, watch Friends with. That's what I really want, a guy quite willing to hang out at home with a girlfriend who doesn't like to get out of her pajamas. Too much to ask?

There must be guys out there like that. Men who don't want the hassle of fighting for a drink at a bar and who think that a good night out is having dinner with friends at a restaurant.

But here's the other kicker; yes, these guys do exist - but they don't go out either. So how are we to meet? Like I said, being single is a struggle, but meeting the man of your dreams is still harder when neither you nor him ever leave the house.
