Isn't anyone else single???

post #1 of 74
Thread Starter 
I sure see a lot of talk about marriage etc., so I'm wondering if anyone else is single around here or am I the only one??? (actually, I'm divorced, but it's almost 16 years...):rolleyes:

:lol:

I think that 16 years divorced can once again constitute being considered single!!!! :)

I think I'm permanently single.





and permanently confused, bewildered, aching, sad, hopeful....

I think there are several of us who are single, but the topic makes it look a bit like a "pick up" joint. It might make some people more hesitant to post.

Personally, I do think that this thread is way off topic and should be closed. HEY NICKO!

Change the topic to "cooking for one, any suggestions?" :)

Cooking for one? Anna Maria II Pizzaria 212-555-1234 :)
I rarely can get fired up enough to cook for myself. There are too few Ooohs & Ahhs :)

Yeah Kyle, I know what you mean. I'm married but occasionally find myself alone at a meal time. I usually end up with oatmeal or a ham and cheese sandwich (not even grilled!!!) :(
Cooking for one? Sounds good to me.

As above

Being single is one of the drawbacks of the hospitality industry folks. We tend to spend too much time at work,my ex-girlfriend thought i lived there!!

We are in a business where we are working when other people are doing things like enjoying themselves.
It`s hard luck on us,we chose to join this industry.Does anyone believe there`s such a thing as a perfect job/career? I certainly don`t,but then again,i`m slighty cynical.

We can`t have everything in life,if we could what the heck would we do with it?

:D :chef: Leo.R.

Um, I'll raise my hand, I'd like that challenge Leo. I find eating out is so much easier than cooking for one....it's soooo interesting to see who's making what and watching others work. I love to sit and watch the front of the house....it's all too fun having friends cook something special or eating sushi<can you imagine making sushi for 1>or just not cooking after cooking with/for others.

I'm beginning to feel like a weirdo for actually liking cooking for one. There is nobody saying "eww vegetables" or "I don't actually have to eat those ??? Right mommy?" Plus I get to be creative. Like my Mango Salsa with Toasted Pita Chips. Less bowls for the dishwasher and my mom gets to feed the heathens.:D

OK, sometimes I DO cook for myself. But It has to be something in bulk, that I can eat several more times. Paella, gumbo, a roasting pan full of braised lamb shanks. Stuff like that.

:D I sort of thought so too - thanks!


(I know how you feel...I truly do!)

One does get used to it though - and it's nice not having anyone messing up the apartment - although there are times when I'd give anything to see a mess. The place stays so perfect it's darn near superficial!!

As for cooking - well, the upside is, I don't have as much trouble watching my weight when I'm alone like this! I make big batches of things at once and freeze them in individual servings - works great because then I just heat and eat with paper plates and plastic cutlery - no dishes! :) Good and bad with everything, I guess.

Heavy Sigh.

Were you serious about that?


I thought this WAS the place to come for any topic...hmmmm.

Well, if you were serious, then no one can talk about marriage, either...


I'm so confused...:confused:

Starlite - We recently had a bit of a dust up regarding non-food related posts. It seemed that some had lost sight of ChefTalk's original mission. You are correct. Late Night Cafe is a place for general ramblings. I would only ask that you be aware of the recent todo and understand any hypersensitivity :)

Okay, since this IS the late night cafe, I repost what I had deleted earlier.

I'm 48 and single - no kids either. There's nothing wrong with being single. Just take a look at some married couples; there, one can see loneliness, too. It's not confined to single people. A person can live alone without being lonely.

What sucks, however, is the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday. After work I come home to an empty apartment save for Chocolate, my long haired manx catster. Although he's good company there's noone else around for warmth and company. TV doesn't get it. It's just not like going to someone else's abode during the winter months and being greeted with apple cinnamon aroma when their front door opens. Homey.:rolleyes: :look:

Well, according to my horoscope....my relationship energy has just been really low lately. This, of course, explains the break-up, the oh, no, we're talking again, and the why the heck was I ever with you in the first place....

sigh.


Glad you re-posted that kokopuffs. I understand about the cat. Mine is not even good company as she has been officially diagnosed with "Berserk Cat Syndrome." Seriously. It is a real diagnosis.

I affectionately call her psycho-kitty.

Will mail her to you if you'd like an extra kitty.

Starlighte, your topic is fine. It is fun and it would seem that was your intention. Yes there are a lot of married people here but there are plenty of single people to. I never was big on cooking for myself like Kyle said I prefer the oohs and ahhs of another when I cook.
Thanks,

Keep YOUR cat, Nancya. You raised the animal. Besides, krazy cats are neato.

Tell me about BCS, never heard of it.

Berserk Cat Syndrome

Her skin starts twitching...her head spasms from side to side...she starts biting at herself...then races around the house bouncing off of walls and furniture. You certainly can't touch her...I was bandaged from wrist to elbows on both arms when I tried.

Scott, our vet, says that he thinks it's psychological. Personally, looks like neurological to me. Reminds me forcibly of Tourettes. I think she is probably swearing during these fits too!

Catnip a la valerian root.

How much and in what form?
post #24 of 74
Valerian root is a muscle relaxant used both for sleep inducing and PMS. Catnip apparently smells like cat hormones/pheromones. They may mellow kitty out. However, I was only joking about the combination. Dunno' if they've been tried on cats.

Ah....I see.

My hopes are dashed.

She does get catnip which may help some. At least she doesn't go completely insane on the catnip which another cat I had did. She starts completely insane and just stays there.

Thanks for the thought anyway.
