Curse Of Single Syndrome

So I got a phone message two days ago from some lady saying I won a prize I entered. I have zero memory of this but I guess I must have. I don't usually enter mall type giveaways but it's not out of the question I suppose. But I was completely skeptical. So I stalled calling back for two days. I just finally worked up the nerve and called. The guy on the other end of the phone said I won one of the top four prizes as long as I confirmed the correct info. Enter super skeptical KK. But it actually wasn't super personal. Until he asked if I was married/living with my significant other or just single. I said single. He said,"what?" I said again I am single. To which he replied, oh well this prize can only go to someone married or living with a significant other, sorry. So once again life slaps me in the face because I am not effing married! It's not about the prize. I don't remember entering and was disbelieving the entire time that I actually won something. But to be told once again in life that I can't play in the cool kids club because a guy isn't holding my hand really bites. I should call back and say I now live with my life partner and share the prize with Bestie or something. Being single really sucks lately. Like waaay more than it ever did before. Hmpph!

aww that sucks! It was probably a scam anyways. I think you are perfect just the way you are :)

KK, that was the biggest deadgum scam if I've ever heard one and I know you don't want to hear this right now, but being single might very well have just saved you a lot of time and possibly money than you can imagine. Thank your lucky stars that you answered "single" and that they didn't try to scam you any further. Being married might have been the curse in this case.
I truly believe that God makes everything possible and beautiful in his time. I also truly believe that the right man is going to come along when you are aren't looking.
Hugs to you my friend

Just to clarify, I am in no way upset about any sort of mystery "prize." I was skeptical from the get go and never gave away more than my name,which they had already. It was the fact that once again I was left feeling like a big single loser.

Oh boo! If it had been legit I say you should have lied and taken a friend!

It's like being in a cab and having the cab driver grill you about "why don't you have a husband? Boyfriend?". There are just some places where I don't need a big slap in the face to remind me that yes, I'm single.

STOP IT, STOP IT!! You're far from being a loser. I'll say it once and I'll say it a thousand times. Hay you are who you are. You don't need anything to be complete. GOD made you that way already. Be comfortable in you and everything that IS you. If anyone has a problem with that, then OOOOH WELL. There is a reason that more than half of marriages end in divorce. Some people enter into it with the wrong reasons.

And then when yo DO get married, if you don't have kids you'll be the odd couple out....
Yep, I know this all too well.
I wonder what it was that required a couple to claim the prize.
