Being single is like being a shoe...

(try not to go for the obvious one)

The more ground it covers the more worn out it becomes.

There's so many other shoes in the world, but only one matches.

Ok, that's the obvious one, but I think it is a big mistake. There isn't one perfect person out there and the rest don't match. There are just many people out there who you could make it work with if you both try hard.

I think besides for being wrong, it is detrimental to think like that. Because then you date and don't find anyone who is completely everything perfect in every single way (usually 🙂 ) , and you think therefore you can't marry them. Or, even worse, you get married thinking he is perfect in every way, and then wake up the next morning and he isn't, and you think you therefore made a big mistake. And you think that since he isn't your "match", you're doomed to misery anyway so no reason to work on the marriage.

So don't think that way.

Marriage is like a shoe. As long as both fit and are reasonably similar, you can get where you need to go, and that's what is important.

sorry, i didn't mean to be depressing. i was talking to an older friend and we were discussing what it takes to have a solid long marriage, which she compared to an old pair of comfortable shoes. maybe i should have put that up, instead of the single person, single shoe. and on that note, here's my take on it. A single person is like a shoe on display in a shoestore- set up with its mate by a salesperson and encouraged to look good so someone chooses it.

sorry but the OP didnt really leave me much to work with, she wrote "like being a shoe" so I tried to fit her words, if she said "like a shoe" it would have been easier and if you read some peoples answer in my opinon they only fit the latter...

“Being single is like drinking a slurpee, in the beginning its good but after awhile it melts and you want to throw it away (and get married).”

Wow...do you really believe that? Do you really think that you are completely worthless and have nothing whatsoever to offer the world until you get married??

being single is like being in a rainstorm-it's gloomy and dreary but then the sun comes out when you meet the one!
