A (somewhat) honest look at what it's like to be a single, Christian woman in her mid 30s in Sydney who wants to remain true to the life that God has planned for her but doesn't want to let go of her dream of being in a relationship again and eventually being a wife and mother

-267 Facebook makes me lonely

Miss365's iphone
Reading Facebook check ins on a Friday or Saturday night is starting to make me really quite lonely. The trend of not only announcing to the world all your friends that you are at some exciting and fun place other than home ( and some of my friends actually check in at home and make that sound exciting ie. Miss M is at Miss M's Spa and Poolside lounge  ) but with someone is *sigh*worthy to us bored at home singles. :P

And I'm not Miss Innocent when it comes to checking in either. I love to check in when I'm doing something fun. Particularly when I'm with someone - and no not on a date - sheesh! - I would tell you if I had one of those!

But when you've been hanging out with The Ninjas with Migraine sticks and Flu nun-chucks all week it makes Miss365 more lonely than ever to read how everyone is enjoying their extra long Easter long weekend out and about with people. *sigh* I'm not jealous and I'm perfectly aware that I could ring people to see what they are doing but I suspect those who are coupled up are out and those who are familied up are at home getting the kids ready for bed and not really doing very much at all really. I really need to work on this. 

This is one of the sucky things about being single and mid thirties and living alone. My social life is really quite annoying it's either a flood or a drought. And it's also making me seriously wonder how much more of this I can stand and what I can do about changing this. The singles harbour cruise did not live up to expectation and that Meet Up group was a fizzer so back to the drawing board ( so to speak ). What next ? Any suggestions ? 

Edit : Ok so I just got a text from Bestest Bud wondering if I was free next Saturday night ( I'm not The Princess booked me for dinner about a month ago - see! Flood or drought!) because she's catching up with a mutual friend of ours that we both do camp with. I am selfishly slightly irritated because I sometimes feel like this invites are second hand and I'm like the afterthought. And I know I'm not and it's just a consequence of the three of us ( me, Bestest Bud & Bonsai Master) being thought of as a symbiotic entity that still does everything together but it still makes me sigh. Thank you to The Princess for inviting me out separate to The Crew. I need that once in a while :) 



  1. hang in there Miss365 most single gals feel your pain

  2. Thanks singlechristianwomen :) I'm hanging. ;) Thanks for your comment :)


  3. Hello, Miss!! I just found your site.

    I'm single, 30, and learning to CREATE the life I want.

    A few months ago, I read a pc of advice from Maya Angelou that said something like this: 'if there's something in your life you don't like, don't complain. Change it. And if you can't change it, change your mind about it.'

    What a powerful reminder. God has given us the authority to be creators.. It's up to us to pray for wisdom and then CREATE the lives we truly desire.

    Much love and looking forward to learning from you!


  4. Hi Mechelle. Thanks for your comment. And I've added your blog to my faves. Great tips on there.


  5. Yay! Thanks for stopping by! :) Any suggestions on how to improve what I'm doing?

    I'm going to do a book of 365 tips for singles realllly soon.. Very excited. God is moving!

    What one thing do u suggest I change on my site?

    Hope you had a great weekend, and thanks in advance!

  6. People have Easter holiday breaks?

    Anyway, around here, it's much of the same (being lonely, that is), so I can completely empathize. Currently, my writing projects have been zapping all of my time and keeping me indoors, so, please, escape and do something fun so that I can live vicariously through you!
