dear spinsters, (vol I)

I would like to welcome all of you fellow spinsters to a new series on my blog called, obviously, “Dear Spinsters”. Here we can discuss the Spinster Lifestyle and the many perks it comes with. Yes, there are perks. We are not bitter, just salty. 

Volume I: Fuckboys

To my dear sweet (salty) Spinsters, I present to you le fuckboy. We have all experienced them in our lives, am I right? They text you late at night after three months of no contact. They want all of the benefits of a relationship without the commitment. They want their ego stroked, among other things. Fuckboys are well known and awful. But I have good news, Spinsters. WE DON’T NEED THEM! The Spinster Lifestyle does not require a relationship, especially one of the fuckboy persuasion. That is just the beginning of the perks.

Here are some things I like more than a fuckboy & even some salty responses to their texts (also applicable to fellow Spinsters):

  1. I would rather look at memes than pictures of your dong.

  2. Yes, “I’m up” but I’m too busy watching Netflix to be bothered.
  3. You’re not looking for a relationship? Neither am I so leave me alone.
  4. “Let’s just have some fun”. I find naps and books fun and you’re neither of those things.
  5. “Send nudes”. Send me a pizza.



Obviously fuckboys are the worst. I like to cut them off early. I would rather not entertain them. Although I am all for sending them sassy responses, but that gets old and tired, just like their games. You are a salty Spinster and you could not care less about a fuckboy. So the first ingredient to the recipe for the Spinster Lifestyle is throw away all of the fuckboys. Then add salt. Keep it extra salty my Spinsters.


Solo Nights Out.

The other night I went to see some live music, alone. Alone? You heard it right, folks. Well Katie, that is just sad. Is it though? You know what is sad, people thinking they cannot go out and enjoy live music just because they do not want to go alone. The fear of doing things alone should never leave you from doing what you want to do.

I do a lot of my own. I LIKE IT. However, sometimes it has deferred me from doing some things. I won’t lie, it has. I have been dreaming of Paris, France for years now and I have not gone. I FLY FOR FREE and I have yet to experience Paris in the springtime. I might as well go alone.

Why should I keep that on hold any longer? The answer is I shouldn’t and neither should you! What are you afraid of doing by yourself? I am not scared anymore.



I often get in these moods. Moods where I either crave pure adventure or complete solitude. I definitely need both for my sanity, but lately I have been having too much solitude. No I’m not depressed. No I’m not sad. I just thoroughly enjoy being on my own. However, I definitely need to add more adventure to the solitude. I need to start doing more of the things I enjoy. What is this life if it is not spent enjoying the comforts? What is this life if I am not taking advantage of the simple pleasures? What is this life if I am not fully living? “I wanna live before I die”. Sure, we have to work to support ourselves but work is not life. I repeat work is not life. Enjoy yourself. Enjoy this life. I am talking you. I am talking to me.
