Writer's Block: Go it alone

Do you think society puts too much pressure on people to be in relationships and/or have children? Do you think this ostracizes people who would be perfectly content to remain single and/or child-free? Is this pressure worse around the holidays?


Yes, yes and more yes. Holidays are engineered around consumption and feel obligation.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To society, for a 30-something year old woman, I am a complete and utter failure. And it's annoying to get constant reminders of that, despite how I may feel about it &/or my own personal successes. sux balls.

This is part of why I loathe family holidays. Hanging with 4 sisters with significant others and kids ostracizes me even further...

My lil' sis is pregnant, and the most popular response thus far seems to be "When are you having one?". NOT. INTERESTED!
