What Is A Quality Single?

In my opinion a quality single is:

A person who is able and willing to support themselves.

Someone who has tended to their luggage, or past relationships in a responsible manner.

They have room in their lives for a partner.

They are not needy, greedily hunting for someone to fulfill only their own needs.

This someone needs to be a friend. Someone who is responsible is often honest, what is not to like.

The above ideas about looking for positive attributes of a partner came from my own experience, and long discussions with other singles who can't seem to make the right connections.

There were times in my life, that I would have considered myself a quality single, but truly I was not really ready to share my life and space with another human.

When I was younger, I did not consider myself Quality because I have always had a big booty, never skinny, not petite or blonde. These are the main attributes that many single males who live and float around my pond are looking for. It is unfortunate for any person to define their worth by this criteria.

Quality is defined as: "...quality a distinguishing characteristic, property, or attribute, 2. the basic character or nature of something, 3. a trait or feature of personality

This comes from the Free Dictionary by Farlex:


Dating - Throw Out The Book

For those who have been hiding from a potential mate. It is bad when a single will go to great lengths to avoid the standard "date."

You get a lunch break, he / she gets a lunch break. Meet a the buffet, or pizza joint. Sushi? A vegetarian brunch. No strings, no expectations. Can you stand the way she chews, is he rude to the waiter? This is a good and speedy way to check potentials of persons you may let into your life.

Lunch, Dinner or Coffee is a Good Time to Meet

Fishing In A Different Pond

Many of singles are hard-pressed, to find a way to meet other singles without resorting to alcohol, loud thumping music, and flashing lights. Although when a Seinfield episode told a truth about dating - I must admit there is a lot of truth in that when trying to meet other single men, alcohol would make a person braver and have fewer inhibitions.

Do mating, and bar-rituals work out? For some; the same ones who will probably get two million-dollar scratch-offs in one day, there may be success. Finding the love of one's life, in a bar would be beating some pretty hefty odds.

If you are tired of ending up with the same type of person; alcoholics, druggies, and cheaters, then it may be a good idea to fish from a different pond.

A Person Who Reads Avidly, Can Save The World

If you have not had a chance to read the Harry Potter Series, then you are not going to understand half of the references in this article. There are many literary notions that a reader follows, but J.K. Rowling has given us thousands of social comparatives, and one-liners that are classic to Potter-heads.

Realize, I am a fifty-five year old woman, who is not alone in her adoration for things Hogwarts. Many "book people," get it, and will understand the references.

Recently on Pinterest, there was a meme published regarding Hermione Granger, and how because she was such an avid reader, she was able to save the life of Harry Potter.

Who would you rather be stuck on an old country road with, someone who watches television, day and night?, or would you want to be in the capable hands of a reader?
