Peeling Back the Layers of Shrek’s Loneliness

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-birmingham-25484153
Before there were too many sequels that wound up making Shrek a bit of an annoyance, this movie was top notch. The first one is possibly one of the best animated films of all time as it took classic fairy tale aspects we’re all familiar with and made them come alive in a whole new way with the introduction of Shrek to a new audience. An ogre who lived in a swamp who had a face only a mother could love, he existed in solitude and was okay with that up until he had to save his homestead by retrieving a princess. Of course he came to fall in love with Princess Fiona but though she was far from his league. How could this beauty ever love a beast (another fairy tale aspect right there).

We’ve been here before and it’ll likely happen again, but my interview subject for this week wasn’t able to get their answers back to me. I can only hope it was because she was no longer single and was unable to fully relate to the questions placed before her, or she got busy with her kickass career as a legit makeup artist. Either is possible and either possibility is totally fine. It would’ve been nice to know though what a 20-something had to say about the reality of being single in a day and age where hook ups are more the norm than commitment thanks to apps making casual sex a-okay for most her age.

Like all things, there are two sides to the idea of being single. Some feel like it’s a blessing to be free and others view it as a curse worse than death. We’ve gone through everything in the dating realm from being in a relationship to the breakup, but this week we’re looking at those who aren’t tied down to anyone by any means. The single folk…some single by choice, others single well because…we’ll look at some of the reasons why.
