How I Realized That Being Single Doesn't Actually Suck
There are times when being single might weigh down on you. Society makes people believe that the ultimate way of existence is in a couple. They might or might not be right, but one thing's for sure - sometimes, we can be perfectly happy while being single. You're alone but never lonely. See the difference? So here are ten points that made me realize that I actually enjoyed being single.
I never have FOMO
If staying in on a Saturday night used to make me sick to my stomach back in the days, today I'm totally comfortable with lounging in my PJs and not giving a single damn about anything. Watching other people's Snapchats and seeing them get drunk literally gives me gag reflex.
I'm no longer a serial dater
I actually ignore all the random thirsty messages from strangers on my social media. Who would've thought? In addition, I can go months without a single date. I'm congratulating myself on this achievement every day.
I value my family and friends more than ever
I finally realize how important my family and friends are. I love them unconditionally and treasure every moment we get to spend together.
I'm genuinely happy for my friends' engagements and pregnancies
I no longer secretly hate how my friends are advancing in life. Instead, I'm actually happy for them. I can't wait to be an auntie.
I enjoy doing things alone
Watching movies, traveling, eating... I'm my own best company. I don't depend on anyone and I love doing things my way.
I feel bad for people who hate being single
Like, it's fun, relax! I truly don't understand why someone would be in a rush to find a partner.
I don't try to desperately make plans every weekend
I still remember the days when I was making weekend plans on Mondays. Today? I don't mind taking it one day at a time. Friends are going out? Awesome, I join them. Nothing going on? Great, I don't mind staying in.
I don't mind being the third wheel anymore
Being the third wheel no longer seems like the worst idea ever. I enjoy seeing my friends happy and it's so natural for me to join them alone.
I realize that not everyone I meet is "the one"
I'm not in a rush to settle down anymore. If the right person happens to cross my path, I'll take that opportunity. If not, I'll still very well manage to survive.
I enjoy all the bed space
Like, a lot.
