But all this is sort of beside the point, isn't it?
If you've been single for more than a week, you've already heard all this standard advice, the volunteering, the cooking classes, the nice boys Mama would approve of. Because it ignores the best part of being single: You get to do exactly what you want to do, exactly when you want to do it.
This seems to be standard single-person advice, for some reason, "just leave the house more, take a cooking class," but while you may learn to make something delicious, I guarantee you that you'll also be the only single person in a room full of mid-30s couples who have been together since college and are there on the advice of their couple's counselor, "testing their boundaries" and "learning new things together to strengthen their bond." In practice, this seems to translate to a lot of sniping at one another about knife skills.
The whole thing's pretty dismal, and if anything, will probably drive you further into singledom.
I will swear to you though that one of my friend introduced me to this one company called E***, it was totally a pyramid job, and the words they use, is just exactly the same..
"own your own business", "residual income", "dress professional" etc.
* Do I really enjoy my current occupation and lifestyle? * Would I like the opportunity to earn a substantial income? * National TV and print advertising * An outstanding compensation package where YOU control how much you earn * Potential annual increases (renewals) of $5,000 $10,000 * Exciting incentives and a stock bonus plan * Over 370,000 established payroll accounts nationwide this is what they put on the job search ad, notice anything?
all it does is ask you if your happy with ur life, and it doesn't say a thing about the job description itself..My son work for Aflac and when he finally landed a big account, 0,000 in commissions and future residuals,his bosses delayed closing the deal for about two weeks.My son pleaded with his regional manager to help him finalize the deal.If you're overwhelmed with where to start your own self-indulgence, I highly recommend it as a jumping-off point.And who knows, maybe I'll actually listen to my own advice for once and see you there!This is a rare and precious thing in adult life, and I think that the real answer to your question is to do just that, whatever makes you feel the most happy, the most at home in yourself, a little indulgence to remind you that you're a pretty rad person, worthy of the love of even the hunkiest sweaty farm boys.
