Where are you going, who with and when are you coming back? When was the last time you had to answer that series of questions? Sometimes when you are in a relationship it feels like you are being controlled and have no freedom. Single life is just the opposite. The only person you have to answer to is you.
When you are single you are in control and you can go places and do things with whomever you want (responsibly of course). Some of us are desperate to jump into a relationship just because we are lonely or because we want a title. We don’t care if it’s a healthy relationship as long as we appear to be happy. It’s okay to be by yourself sometimes. It gives you a chance to be free and have fun. There is as much joy in being single as it is to being married or in a relationship.
Choose to be single by choice. Enjoy it for what it is; a time to mingle, network and flirt without worrying about how it will affect someone else. Do things that are fun and adventurous and create some interesting stories to tell your next partner. Let them know that you had a life and you plan to still have a life while you are with them. An active person is more attractive.
Remember that bucket list and that list of things you like you wrote a few weeks ago. Check some of them off. Stop thinking about what is so bad about being single and think about what so good about it. You might surprise yourself and want to extend your single days and postpone rushing into a relationship. When the world finds out that you don’t mind being single, they don’t mind being in a relationship with you; it is funny how that works.
Single…Now That’s Presidential!
