Up until a couple of days ago, if someone had asked me if I liked being single I would have given them a strong, confident, definite, pissed off “NO”. I was constantly judging every boy that walked past me, I was jealous of every couple I saw and I wanted a boyfriend so bad. Fast forward to last night, and I couldn’t sleep because I was up all night thinking about reasons why I should cancel on a potential date before the date was even in place. The thing was, I was chatting to this boy and it was all fun and games until I realised there was a possibility of it actually going somewhere. All of a sudden, out of nowhere, I start panicking and thinking about all the reasons I love being single. So, fast forward to right this second and I am telling you I have never been more happy to be single in my whole entire life. If you’re in a happy relationship you probably don’t need to read any further, if you’re single and want a boyfriend continue reading, if you are the boy I’m talking about, I’m sorry, it’s not you, it’s me.
First off, you can flirt with whoever you want and not ever feel bad.
You can take comfort knowing that every time a friend is having boyfriend issues, you’re not.
You can get with anyone you want on a night out (in other words, you can totally be a hoe if you want).
You don’t have to think about anyone else, your decisions are YOUR decisions.
You don’t have to shave your legs all the time.
You can wear heels and not worry about towering over the guy or having to bend down to kiss him.
You can make jokes about being single (I’ve made some bloody good ones).
You won’t be the friend that ditches everyone to be with their boyfriend (because you don’t have one).
You don’t have to worry about anyone cheating on you.
You can spread out in a double bed, no one will steal your covers.
You can learn to love yourself.
You can be a strong independent woman who DON’T NEED NO MAN.
And yes I know, I need to suck it up and actually go out on some dates but, and to me this is the most crucial part: you have a whole section of your life where you can settle down with someone, where all of a sudden your one woman (or man) show turns into a lovers duet so why not use this time to know who the phuck you are?
