The world is full of married men….


Jackie Collins was on TV the other day and was explaining that her first book, published in 1968, was still flying off the book shop shelves – amazing! The book is called ‘the world is full of married men’, I guess its an opinion that many of us women share.

When I was snug in a relationship I never even noticed, now it seems they are everywhere, closing in on me. ;)

An example of this occurred a couple of weeks ago when Melissa and I and a couple of friends were joined on a night out by surfer dude and his friend, who happens to be my hot neighbour.

Hot neighbour is cute and apart from him thinking I was 22 (which I thought was slightly far fetched), seemed quite young and fun. I have seen him with his girlfriend a few times but for some unknown reason I had it in my head that he didn’t even live with her and that maybe they were just seeing each other, I love my wild imagination!

So, after talking absolute nonsense to him for 5 mins, I asked him something about his girlfriend, (I can’t even remember what, just small talk), he corrected me by saying ‘my wife’.  I tried to hide my shock by carrying on talking.

I could see out of the corner of my eye Melissa and my other friend trying to stifle their giggles. It took all my restraint not to shout in a dramatic movie style fashion ‘Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!’ I refrained of course.

I was then subjected then to a small lecture from Melissa (who I must add, is 12 years younger than me) that I must be more observant and that I must always look at the left hand. Always!!

But really….are all the cute ones taken? I am all for a happy ending and as delighted as I am for all these lovely married men that they have found theirs, I am starting to get a bit anxious when talking to a member of the opposite sex.  So many things to remember: look at the ring, make sure they aren’t weird, married, gay; the list is endless.  Being single is quite exhausting!

    I totally agree. Like you I never really noticed it before but they literally are everywhere. I seriously think there is a club which only a select few women get invited too whereby they can pick hot men and marry them before they get unleashed on the singles market!

    Every now and again the single guys are allowed out to play though… that's when you need to make your move! The key is knowing where they'll be – usually in the most unlikely of places….
