Beware the single bridezilla

Anita Chakraburtty: no ring, no husband, but big plans

Single bridezilla (n) –  a women who has her entire wedding planned out, without a fiance with whom to complete it.

A Sydney woman has made Australian headlines as she searches for the perfect man, before April 7, 2013.  She’s picked the date, the location, the dress and even invited her friends and family but she isn’t even dating anymore.  An astrologer, she’s convinced that the stars will align for her within the next few months and she’ll have a ring on her finger by April.

“Astrologically I’ve got quite a lot of activity happening in October and November in my charts,” she says. She picked the date of the “because it has once-in-a-lifetime planetary alignments favoring relationships,” and its her birthday. Wisely, her friends have refused to book their flights until she at least starts dating.

Trends like this worry me.  What kind of society do we live in where women plan major life milestones without any semblance of them actually happening? I mean, I fantasize what it would be like to win the lottery, but I’ve never picked a day to do it.  I know it’s common for women to dream about their wedding but to actually put plans in motion is insane.  If anything, it probably would scare potential dates off, knowing she has an expiration date in mind.  See ya later commitment-phobes! I’ll be watching the stars to see if this chick can get hitched in time.
