I’m very single.
It’s not a surprise to people who know me because I joke about it (and I’ll be damned if I ever keep a relationship a secret again). And being a certified adult™, I have plenty of friends who are in relationships, engagements, or marriages.
Some more backstory, I went to a university was rampant. Like, 90% of the people I met there were already married or got married before graduation. And looking into statistics, the percentage is actually something like 70-85% marriage status. Yeah, everyone was getting married.
I was not.
But because of that whole 5 and a half year situation, I have made the unintentional habit of ring-checking. I can notice a wedding band quicker than anyone else. It’s awesome and awful at the same time.
But I was curious, am I the weird one or do others ring check?
So I thought I’d wear a ring for a while.
I wore it for three weeks everywhere. Work, rehearsal, the friggin’ library. I didn’t make mentions, I didn’t say anything, just wore it on my left ring finger indiscreetly. And you know what happened?
Not a single thing.
No one treated me differently, no one asked questions, the people I live with didn’t even notice.
What was the point of this post?
I don’t really know.
But experiments are meaningless without data or writing.
Your lesson of the post of the day (what?) is a person is not a relationship, despite what my old college taught me. Turns out to be my problem, and a problem at my old university. Notice a person before you notice their relationship status.
Man, this was a bad post, but I’m allowed some, especially if it gets a thought out my brain.
Thanks for reading.
