As the old year ends, I am still single. This is a pretty normal state for me regardless of the year. And it is one that I am okay with.

I have been "reminded" by some less than well-meaning family members that the next stage in life for me is decrepit spinsterhood. I shall reside in a creaky old house, alone, except for my plethora of cats and dote on them as the last vestiges of my life wanes away.

And to them and to all who look upon my aging and singlesness, as some sort of incurable and unspeakable flaw,http://i94.photobucket.com/albums/l117/regdog/finger6.gif

I have much to my surprise been defended by a family member with the declaration "That not every pot has as a lid and regdog is a happy lidless pot"

So for no other reason than I want to give those of us happy lidless pots a voice. I have decided to declare January 2 "Lidless Pot Day"

For those of us who are single and okay with that, January 2 is for us.

A day when we don't have to pretend we're interested in meeting "this great girl/guy so and so knows from work"

A day to tell eharmony, edates and every other dating service :banana: I don't need your stinking profile

A day to look back upon, when the sickeningly sweet Valentine's Day comes along and say. Hey we singles don't need your "Love Day" but we'll eat all your chocolate because we don't have to worry about our "loved one" noticing our weight gain.

A day to say, I'm single and it doesn't mean spinsterhood, just I'm single and happy being single.

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Sign me up!!

With Bells on!

I too, have no lid, and I don't need one. I don't disparage those that do, or those that want a lid, or that don't feel right without a lid on (though I think you should try and be your own person) <but that's not judgement.

**shake and shimmies on the stove, without a lid on!**

Oh, and not all pots are made with lids. And if anyone tells you otherwise, hit them over the head with a frying pan.

I have no animosity or grudge against happy pots with lids.

I just decided to claim a day for those of us who are single and content with it.
So join us, January 2 is a day to celebrate happy singleness.

I've been a shallow pot in the past, but I've resolved to be a deeper pot in 2010. "To be, or pot to be, that is the question . . . "

regdog
01-01-2010, 06:36 PM
I'm confused. How did you guys get anything negative from what I posted? It's a sort of stand-tall manifesto for being happily lidless, and a rebuff of those who think a pot needs a lit to be complete. I'm not against a day to proclaim proud lidlessness, I'm suggesting we do it everyday in our actions and attitudes, including those aimed at the people who feel we are missing something.

Read the post again, this time assuming that I'm railing against those who put down the lidless instead of assuming I'm doing the railing. If your automatic assumption was the latter, take the chip off your shoulder. A first step in being happily lidless is knocking off those shoulder chips (so I'm learning from experience).


I didn't get anything negative from your post.

Too many people in relationships make assumptions about how single people feel about being single. They assume we are all pathetic, lonely and desperate to be in a relationship. Far too many people in relationships look upon singles as people to be pitied. Not true.

I am saying I want a day specially dedicated to celebrating happy singleness, just as Valentine's Day celebrates couples.

We could start a list of things that are good about being a lidless pot (or potless lid). I'll start with one that I'm truly thankfully for.

1. On holidays you don't have to spend time with another family (including participating in whatever goofy family traditions they have, such as making a living nativity scene in the front yard in below freezing weather). Said family usually lives three states away and you have to spend half your holiday traveling back and forth.

3. You don't have to care how many shoes (or golf clubs, or power tools, or widgets) your significant others buys; it's not like you have to help pay for them.

Lidless Pot: I found this cute dress at Macy's, but it's four-hundred dollars. Do you think I should buy it?
Potless Lid: Sure, go ahead.

I was thinking about the OP mentioning dating sites which are basically scams - they advertise all gorgeous potential mates and when you join for the free trial send you fake date requests from fake profiles. For some reason it's the only advertising they show on Facebook, at least for me. Stop looking at my soul, Facebook!
At least with speed dating the date candidates are real. No one would make those people up.

We're not just potless lids or lidless pots. We're Faberge jewel-encrusted lids or pots who need shiny, shiny pots or lids to go with us. Is it our fault that so many lids and pots out there are just not good enough to go with us? I don't think so. I'd rather be a lidless pot than a pot with a lid that doesn't fit.

All lidless pots and all potless lids (except cray) should be readily accepted, regardless of situation, perpetration, abandonment, death, divorce, virginity, deception, falling prey to a con-man scheme, falling into a deep hole and being forgotten about by your villagers, or mail-order bride rejection.

As another year winds down, I'm still happily unattached. I am neither unhappy about this or begrudging those in a relationship their happiness.

There are many men and women out there who are happily single. We are not sad and lonely. We do not pine for someone to rescue us from our solitude.

Still not interested in trying an internet dating site or being introduced to this "great friend of a friend."

What will come this year, I have no idea, but I'll be here.

Can I join if I'm simply stoic and reasonable about my singleness? That I'm not desperately seeking someone, but still would like a partner at some point in the future?

It's kind of like, instead of a "Happily Ever After" singleness, I have a "Happy For Now" singleness.

Of course you can join. Being a happy single doesn't mean you're opposed to finding someone someday. It just means while you're single you're okay with being single.:)

As another year winds down, I'm still happily unattached. I am neither unhappy about this or begrudging those in a relationship their happiness.

There are many men and women out there who are happily single. We are not sad and lonely. We do not pine for someone to rescue us from our solitude.

Still not interested in trying an internet dating site or being introduced to this "great friend of a friend."

What will come this year, I have no idea, but I'll be here.

I always believed that it will happen if it's meant, unless you are a total hermit with no outside connection to anyone or you don't want it.

I had given up on love but then it happened. I had come to terms with my being single and I was perfectly fine with it. If I should ever become unattached again for any reason, I doubt that I would ever enter another relationship.

There are also people like my mother who will never be single and never has. She had admitted she has to have someone in her life to feel whole. Personally I have issue with this because I don't quite understand it, but I respect it. It's her life.

Glad you're in a good relationship now, brainy.


I've had friends who became so dependent on being taken care of by their SO, they were unable to even think for themselves and never wanted to. And some who pretended to be helpless so they would never have to do anything for themselves.

And of course the celebration of Lidless Pot Day would not be complete without this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkkNEdwTmNo). (Safe for work.) I wish its image were better preserved, but it's still funny as hell.

According to 10 Resolutions You Should Never Make (http://shine.yahoo.com/channel/life/10-resolutions-you-should-never-make-2432350/) number one is:



1. Get Married by the End of the Year
Marriage is a huge goal, especially if you’re still single, making the odds of failing painfully high. Instead, whether you’re in a relationship or not, focus on what you like about your current situation — you’ve got enough pressure in your life.

So enjoy being single.

I have a "friend with benefits" but we're not dating. That doesn't count right?

Stop looking for someone online. That crap never works. I tried it for too many years. Online dating makes folks lazy, jaded, bitter, fickle, etc.

Follow your interests and meet someone that way. I'm not looking to date at this time but if I was that's what I would do.

BK, that's a great arrangement. I don't know why being regularly intimate doesn't "count", but I don't understand modern relationships in general, which is probably why I'm single.

Love your OP, love the idea of Lidless Pot day. :)

And I am married, have been for 8000 years. But everyone IS different, and we should respect the choices others make. We aren't living in caves, in need of numbers for protection.

If something were to happen to my husband, I would never marry again, and likely wouldn't date. I would miss *him* but wouldn't miss being married, if that makes any sense.

Tell your relative you're waiting for her/him to go first, and then give them a copy of Miss Rumphius (http://www.amazon.com/Miss-Rumphius-Barbara-Cooney/dp/0140505393).

That is really rather bizarre. She should meet my friend C. who owned and drove an RV all by herself for about seven or eight years. She lived in it and traveled back and forth across the country, camping out in deserts when she could. Most of the time she had two big ole Belgian Terverins (sp?) -- dogs -- with her, too.

But she got married after that, so no more wilderness treks for her! :D And getting married was what she wanted more than anything, so, go figure.

ETA: I suppose, to be completely frank, I ought to admit that if I ever were to find (read: spontaneously encounter) someone with whom a partnership felt right and sort of inevitable, I would peacefully turn in my Lidless Society membership card. I have just pretty much figured no such person is likely to turn up and I have no need to go on a hunt (as my friend C. did.)

I've been a lidless pot for the first time in years since last January. And I'm enjoying it. Other people can be such a bother.

Hmm. I suppose the reason for the sudden surge in singles and porn spam (View Hot Christian Singles! Sexy Wives Looking for You! Why Wait? Have an affair TODAY!) is to do with the impending Valentines Day thingum.

Maybe we should create a line of greeting cards for Lidless Pot Day.

:D

It's January 2nd where I am. Happy Lidless Pot day all!

I think I like the idea of this holiday more than NYE. If it stops raining, I might go shopping - alone.

I'm not against having a partner, but I'm in no rush, I suppose. Not until I get my own place, at least...

Same here. Nothing like trying to date while you still live with mom and dad.

I don't get the lidless pot analogy. Is it the old saw that the pot needs the lid "to complete itself?"

I think that's nonsense. You should be "complete" on your own before you meet another. Who the hell wants to date, or marry, someone who is incomplete, or Needs (capital N) someone else to make themselves feel whole?

That said, I noticed Valentine's Day crap on the shelves of stores before Christmas was even over.

For me, it's the "sex" aspect. I don't want to be having sex while acutely aware that mum is about 5-10 metres away from my bedroom. Ick!

This here. And overall privacy. My mom has to know what's going on all the time.

That's exactly where I got Happy Lidless Pot from. Not all pots need a lid to be complete. Lots of pots are just fine on their own. Society just seems compelled to insist there is something wrong with a person if they're single.

Yeah, it's not what you might call anatomically suggestive.

Which is kinda nice, akshally.

My ideas right now are along the lines of getting other people to have ideas. :D

I was really sort of joking about the line of cards, but then again, it might have some potential!

I'll have to think too. :)

Ah yes, that time of year again, to celebrate loneliness and getting old. Luckily, wine is on hand.
(Sorry, I need some help getting into the spirit this year. Anything, people?)

Going on year two of being a lidless pot. Some days I don't mind, but then I have those days I wish I had someone to nuzzle.

This may sound contrite and I certainly don't mean it that way,, but you have to be happy with yourself to be a happy lidless pot. There are days we all feel lonely and wonder "what if" "I wish" but you can't let those moments drag you down or make you feel like you're lacking.

Oooh, I've got you beat. I'm approaching the three year mark. ;)

Dogs and kitties are great for nuzzling 'cuz, y'know, soft. And they tend to smell better. :)

*ahem* 10 years for me. Of course, not all of those have been "happy" lidless pot years.

You know, I was just thinking... I wonder if anyone's ever written a Lidless Pot Day movie? Y'know, like those Valentine's movies, except in this one the two protagonists don't get together, yet are happy anyway.

If nobody's written one, then I'm sure someone in this thread could get stuck into it. ;) *nominates Kyla, as she didn't do the cards idea* :tongue

I had a not-exactly-date six years ago, but in terms of actual relationships, it's coming up on fourteen. Yeah, it'd be nice to have someone around, but I'm not going to settle.

Our mother tried to instill in us the belief that a woman is worthless without a man. My sister bought into that, but I never did. I still don't. Then again... asexual.
