For the Single Ladies

It’s been a long time since I’ve been a single lady.  I guess that’s why I roll my eyes when the single women I know start ranting and raving about their lives and relationships.

Hey, I give you single gals credit.  It takes a lot to handle things on your own.  The relationships you have sometimes end in tears and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s.  The guy was a jerk.  He cheated on you.  He was a user.  Whatever.  And I’m sure you were perfect, right?

Ladies, get a grip.  Did you ever stop and think that maybe, just maybe, some of the problems in your relationships are partly your fault?  Why would you keep dating the same kind of loser over and over again?  Is your self-esteem that low?  If you keep having relationships that end the same way all the time, you need to evaluate yourself.

It’s difficult for women in successful relationships to sympathize with women in poor relationships because we get sick of hearing the complaining.  With the women I know I feel like throwing up my hands and saying, “get a fucking cat”.




I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!

Tell me what you think!
