In a few months, I’ll be turning 22. People around my age tend to have a special someone in their lives – except for me. People may find it weird that I never had a boyfriend and I find it quite alright. Yes it’s true that there would be times I would imagine myself having that special someone beside me and caring for me but at the peak of my life right now, I don’t mind.
Here are a few reasons as to why it’s alright to be single since birth :
1. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT TO DO
Want to experience solo travel? Then start booking a ticket to the place you have always dreamed of going to. Want to hang out with your guy friends? Then you are free to do so. Want to dress up casually? Then wear something you are comfortable with. Through these ways, you don’t get pressured at all to do the things that couples usually do.
2. You get to spend more quality time with your best friends.
Once you are in a relationship, you won’t be able to have the time to hang out with your best friends. You will always be with your boyfriend with whatever plans you plan to do. So while you are still single, take this opportunity to be with your best friends and do anything and everything under the sun.
3. You get to save money.
This is what I don’t like about dates. You get to spend – be it for food, movies, gifts, etc. When it’s your anniversary, obviously, you will be going out with your special someone and you get to buy gifts for one another. Being single gives you the chance to save money and you get to spend your money when you really need or want something.
4. You get to discover who you really are.
Through discovering oneself, you are able to achieve your goals and dreams. There is a sense of fulfillment in yourself that you know you are ready to commit being in a relationship with a special someone.
