Is singlehood really that bad?

even with movies and tv shows that seem to portray the sex in the city lifestyle telling us that it is ok to be single, we are still continuously expected to look for Mr Right.
i mean honestly Aristotle with his we are all looking for the other half that god took away from us should be considered a thing of the past and an ideal irrelevant to our modern day society right?

sadly, even though i'm only this young, i'm continuously grilled by the nagging voice outside my head that wishes everyday that i would graduate faster get a boyfriend and get married.
this particular nagging voice has constantly reminded me of this:
women really don't have to be all that smart. as long as you're pretty that should get you a good husband so that you can live happily ever after.

i am graduating soon. i have a job that does support me at the moment and hopefully it looks good on my resume, and to top it off i hardly mooch of my parents (other than the uni fees)
still this doesn't make any difference. why? coz i'm single.

i use to believe that i still have plenty of time left. that i can still see the world and enjoy life. yet even Dr.K opposes this. he keeps telling me the height of your prime is when you're 25 and hopefully by that time you'll have a boyfriend that you have in mind to settle down with already
coz then you have 5 years to think about having kids. always try to have kids before you're 30.

geez. with all the work and study and what not, i still have to juggle a half-assed existing social life and still have time to date.
look at all the expectations to meet.
it's the age old modern day question that lingers. why is it alright for men to meet their prime at 40-something and have no nagging voices that keep telling them their time is coming soon!!!??

yes the world spins on an angle. nothing is perfect.
i just need to keep reminding myself that i'm not un-datable. i just don't have the time for it and i haven't found the right one. hopefully that pacifies that nagging voice..
