Singlehood. Love or hate it, it's something we all have to go through at some point. Sure, you're the only one you have to consult about your social schedule and the socks on the floor are always yours, but wouldn't it be nice to delegate dinner responsibilities to someone else once in a while? Or kiss whenever you darn well please?

Of course!

For some, singlehood only lasts a couple years out of high school. Others have to wait much longer to find that special someone. Regardless, everyone eventually has to deal with awkward first dates and weird pick-up lines and the first month are we or aren't we dance. Or the six month are we or aren't we dance. Meeting parents. The best friend test. The first road trip. The first kiss. The first fight. The twenty-fifth fight. The break-up. The first meeting after the breakup.

There are stories in every one of them, and we're here to document our experiences. The three of us have been friends for years, but are now spread all over the country. This blog will be a way for us to share our stories with each other and with you.

We do want to clarify one thing. Our marital status does not define us. We're many things other than singletons - we're daughters, sisters, friends, students, professionals, shoe collectors, pet owners, lovers of all things sparkly, Mormon (sorry, no sex stories here), writers, thinkers, etc. We have two Republicans and one Moderate. We're a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead (insert bad joke here).

We're very happy with our lives and the things we've been able to experience thus far, especially finding each other. If we don't have husbands yet, at least we have each other to celebrate and bemoan that fact with.
