Dear Carolyn: Im single. Ive been single my entire 60 years. I travel alone most of the time, yes, even on vacation. Im sick of people being shocked that I drove cross-country twice alone. Im sick of people giving me odd looks and telling me, Your day will come, when I am alone on vacation, in the airport, on the plane, at the hotel, in the restaurant. I dont have a question, Im just tired of being regarded as bizarre. Just Need to Vent
Answer: Rightly so.
But I hope someday, if someone gives you the Your day will come line again, you say the same back to that person. Because, seriously, way more people manage to get married/paired off than have the courage to be alone with their thoughts, much less alone with their dinner, movie, long-distance drive or vacation.
