I can absolutely relate to Carrie Bradshaw in sex and the city as the single New York gal who doesn’t want kids and is seen as the odd one. Yea, most people I know are settling down, getting married and having kids and I get the feeling most people think I bury my feelings in my work or sex.😂
The truth is, I’d be a great father. I spent my childhood helping raise my brother and sister and now I’m home for the quarantine spending a lot of time with my younger brother and sister and being honest, it’s been great! I absolutely love it but the thing is, I still don’t desire my own kids. They can be my kids. I’ll be the fun gay uncle. When I’m working with them, I don’t think about being single. I see the those memes, once you realize what you deserve you’ll stop settling. I feel like they’re talking to me. But when I see that all I think is how some man is going to try and pin me down. When all I want I and have ever wanted is freedom and acceptance. I still want to travel
the world, learn about different cultures and then come back and share my experiences. The truth is, I’m not sad being single. I have really learned to be happy with who I am. I’ve spent enough time being a “dad” and I don’t desire to do it again. But a great older gay brother, I can do that. Perhaps single isn’t the right word. I have a lot of love in my life that works for me.
And please stop telling me to evolve. Stay on your side of the street.
