I decided that instead of harping on how it sucks to be single, I’m going to highlight to beautiful things about being single.* Now I’m not daft, I realize that most of these reasons are going to be variations of the same underlying theme, “no longer having to compromise”, but let me have my fun.
The invention of DVR has become a blessing and a curse in a relationship.
If you don’t live together and spend extended amounts of time at your girlfriend’s place or just out being with her, you never have to miss any of your shows.
HOWEVER, if you live together or get married, the DVR is the source of many problems.
All the good shows come on at the same time (especially on Mondays and Thursdays). Now, it’s no secret how much television I watch. Could you imagine if I had to SHARE the DVR?
I’m sorry. There are wars a man can win in a relationship but if you think you are getting to watch Sunday Night Football when she wants to watch Desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters while taping True Blood and Entourage, you are sorely mistaken**.
Plus there’s the sharing of the remote issue and the “Why do you flip the channels so much?***” argument that you no longer need to deal with.
