Single people

No doubt some of you have heard this on the news today.

Emma Watson (of Harry Potter fame), is approaching 30 years old, unmarried and never had a child.

But unlike other single people, she does not think of herself as single, she has decided to call herself 'Self Partnered.'

Is the name of the future?
Will we soon see the option on forms . . . .

Marital status - married/divorced/single/ or self partnered?

Heaven help us.

Re: Single people

I heard that, Mups.
I wonder what sort of chats she has with herself...never mind anything else!

It seems the in thing, is to have a ‘label’!

Re: Single people

No way can you partner yourself !
Definition of the word is either of a pair of people engaged together in the same activity.
Has just made herself look stupid !

Re: Single people

Well she can always uncouple herself from herself easily if she wants to change her mind!

Re: Single people

More like 'Self Centred'

Perhaps that's why she is single.

Re: Single people

Self partnering....Sarah Hirigoyen..

Psychotherapist and Counsellor .

Self partnering is realising that you need to go within yourself to self soothe rather than do anything to try to escape how you are feeling....
Much more on the subject...just a little of what I read.

Re: Single people

I'm rather liking the old queer word, and it's back in!

I've decided everybody's queer, as queer as fcuk folk.
