Another month is upon us already, so it’s time for another questionnaire. I did the first questionnaire last month, and everyone seemed to enjoy it, so I plan to keep it going. Although this little series is titled ‘Blogger Questionnaire’, everyone is welcome to participate, even if you don’t have a blog. (Sometimes questions might be about blogging, so if you don’t have a blog, you can just skip those).
As I stated previously, I’m going to be picking a different theme for the questions each month. Since Valentine’s Day is coming up, I figured love would be a good theme this month. (Plus, it’s such a broad term.) I hope you all will participate again this month and leave your answers in the comments.

I know I wrote a post recently about why I love being single. It’s true, I really do. However, there is another side where I sometimes get really down on myself and feel like I’m going to be single forever. Maybe I will be, and maybe that’s not such a bad thing. I mean if I’m happy by myself, then why do I need to worry about bringing another person into the mix?
Sometimes I think it has to do with society and how it seems to be expected that you find someone to be with, and also how it seems like single people are looked down upon. Especially if you’ve reached a certain age and have not yet found someone to marry, have kids with, or just generally settle down with. Society also makes it seem like you’re a pathetic person if you’ve been single for years, like myself. I actually read an article once that basically looked down on people who stayed single for more than a year.
I’ll be 29 in a few months and I’ve gotten the many comments, such as, “Are you just going to be single forever?”, “When are you going to get out and meet someone?”, “Are you ever going to get married?”, “If you want to have kids, you need to find somebody soon.” Aside from those comments, I also get comments about how young I look for my age. Several of my family members were joking around recently when they said, “The reason you can’t find a boyfriend is because you look like you’re 14.” I know they didn’t mean anything hurtful by that, but it just adds to the internal struggle I face.
