halfling:  It was way easier to eat healthy when I was single and I spent a total of 2.5h or so in the gym 5-6 days a week, that’s no longer happening. Yes, I’ve put on weight but I am still reasonably fit and far more relaxed. Other than that, I just tell Fiance when I want to do something without him. He’ll survive.

Sure there are things I miss about being single, or “living alone” which is probably the better term.  Someone up thread said “not worrying about appearing lazy” and I think this is a big one.

Honestly in a perfect world my husband would go out of town a little more often.  A few more 4 day weekends alone would be great.

halfling:  wears early on in marriage but have been together Nearing 4 years and my best friend asked me that and I said no. I feel calm and content and we have so much fun and do young things together and go to festivals and journeys and just laugh. Single life I felt although a riot at times left me craving that love and comfort at the end of the day.

as for dressing -i dress how I want! He met me and my zany dressing style ever changing and that’s me. As for food he loves my food and only doesn’t like onions but unlike his mum who bans his dad from having it in the house I put it in my salad or put a pit without next to mine but he would eat it anyway but I do it out of love when I can be bothered lol. I love his presence in the house – being married doesn’t mean i had to change me and you shouldn’t either – it might not be him it might be you thinking that’s what you have to do ….

halfling:  There is nothing wrong with being frugal girl! With that said, both you and your man should spoil yourselves every now and again. You’re conscientious about not splurging which is very smart.

Fantastic that you’re making a skirt! Hey, that’s awesome about the skinny jeans and boots. Definitely do it! Oh and the v-neck too! Plus you can create lots of different looks with those essential pieces.

I definitely understand everyone’s thoughts about having alone time! I am the same way. Luckily my FH travels for work a lot (Disney yay!) and I know I’ll always have a lot of time eventually. It’s nice for a few days but then I miss him anyways. But it is hard when we are around each other 24/7. I like to just watch my own girly shows without him chiming in or just watch girly YouTube videos and it’s hard to do that around him. Not to mention making random foods like mac and cheese or eating a piece of cake after dinner with no judgment. Lol!

No, I wouldn’t say I miss being single. What I miss most is coming home to a house that I know is nice and clean and tidy because I cleaned it and it’s only my mess to care for, instead of coming home from work after cleaning to DH’s dirty dishes in the sink, uinform on the couch, tripping over his boots, lol. But aside from that I haven’t really changed anything of my pre-married life habits. The only thing that’s really different is if I want to make after work plans, I have to let him know instead of just being able to go, or if I want to make a big purchase I let him know. But, my husband is in the military so maybe when you spend 8-10 months out of the year apart from each other it gives you a different perspective.

The absolute only thing I miss about being single is that I wasn’t terrified of losing someone so much (I have anxiety issues). Being with Fiance is the absolute best thing that’s ever happened to me.

Other than that, no, nothing.

I’m not married yet, but I don’t miss being single. SO has really expanded my horizons. Almost everything but oysters that she has made me try I have loved! We are LD, but before when we were living together we frequently grocery shopped together, plan menus together, go to the gym together. We still had time with our friends individually, but we did (and when together now, do) a lot of stuff together. Especially in regards to food. We cook so much. When we do move in I imagine our food budget being nearly equal to our rent. But thankfully when I’m eating healthier, especially when training for a race, she accomodates to my needs as needed and we make it work.

And she does the laundry. I hate doing laundry so much. Living on my own right now laundry is such a PITA.

halfling:  My reply is more about the dating scene. Once in a while I do miss being single but usually not. I still have about 3 single friends who are registered in dating websites. It sounds fun and exciting when they meet someone new and gossip with me about it. But then again after 2 months or so, when those guys stop calling them for no reason or starts  showing them an attitude they don’t like and they vent to me about it, I am brought back to reality of how lucky I am to be with my SO. Sometimes too I can’t relate to what they tell me because I have been with SO since 2009 and our relationship has been comfortable, steady and we hardly fight. Our converstation usually ends with them telling me, “Trust me, you are not missing out on dating and I’d be happy to be in your shoes.”
