A couple of other things to more directly address some of your interests.

Just about everyone in my family thinks I am a lesbian because I am in my 30's, well educated and single. My father, I think, is the most stunned by me and constantly says that "women are only truly happy when they have a husband and children" - the irony is that MY mom used to sit and hold a gun to her head when I was a kid. She was very happy - obviously.

It used to really bug me, but it doesn't anymore. The happier I got with my life, the less their opinion meant to me. He is a dinosaur from an age long long ago. I love him, but don't see him much.

I will admit that I have a lot of casual friends, but none that I am overly close to, or desire to become closer with. I don't call them to go do something, or just to talk. If I get an invitation to go somewhere, if it sounds fun, then I'll go. I usually have a good time, but I'm not a super social type person. I would never do something just to be around people. That's sounds like torture to me.

Some of the people I know are constantly trying to fix me up with people, which I find exceedingly annoying. There is only so many ways one can say "Thank-you, but I'm really not interesting in dating right now."

I once asked a very intrusive lady how she would feel if I kept trying to get her to divorce her husband because I was so happy as a single person.

Things like this are tough. I simply don't have a problem with the way they live, why do they care about the way I live?
