Is Being Single Really That Bad?

Is Being Single Really That Bad_

Relationships are a big deal. Talking to people, dates, getting into a relationship, getting out of a relationship (or not if you’re lucky enough to have found the right person.) It’s a normal part of life. It’s as though we are constantly looking for our romantic soul mate in the midst of dealing with this thing called life. It’s understandable – people don’t want to be alone for the rest of their lives.

But, being single really isn’t as bad as it seems, especially in your younger years. I feel as though there is always some sort of pressure, no matter how small, to be in a relationship or to be talking to someone (although the pressure may not always be constant.) Family members always seem to ask if you’ve found someone yet. Peers seem to be in great relationships which can make you wonder why you haven’t found somebody yet.

Being single is perfectly okay. I can tell you that as a fact. Whatever age you are, it gives you time to develop yourself and who you are as individual on your own before you get into a committed relationship. It’s a chance to discover yourself (or re-discover yourself), being able to focus on yourself and only yourself throughout that period of time (however long it takes.)

At nineteen years old, I’ve been single for the majority of my life – I’ve had very few relationships (so much so that I can count them on both hands.) But that’s not something that gets me down, I mean, why should it get me down? There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being single. In fact, I would say that I prefer being single. Being single is something that I’m used to and it’s allowed me to be independent rather than having to rely on others. In all honesty I’d prefer to depend on myself rather than having to dependent on others. At this point in my life, having friends to depend upon is more than enough for me.

You are the only person that lives with yourself forever, so why not become comfortable with yourself first. Being single can be just as enjoyable as being in a relationship without the constraints. It’s easier to put yourself first without feeling guilty for it. You can simply enjoy yourself with friends and family without having to think about your significant other all the time.

Basically, what I’m trying to say is that being single really isn’t the end of the world, no matter how much you might think that it is. Being single isn’t as bad as some people might make it out to be.

All in all, being single isn’t bad at all. It’s as great as you make it out to be. But don’t get me wrong, being in a relationship isn’t bad either if it’s a good relationship.

  1. I feel like being single is made more of a big deal than it actually is. I feel like I used to care a lot about this when I was in high school. Now, I’m so happy to be single and go out with my friend. Now is the time to be “selfish”. I am actually talking to someone right now that has potential to be my next boyfriend, but I am in no rush to be tied down. I actually have learned so much about myself because of the fact that I am single. Great post xxx

  2. I love this post! I’m almost 21 and have never been in a relationship but don’t see a problem as that is all I’ve ever known and to be honest I love it! Xx


  3. Well said. I enjoy being single. Though I do worry I will never find someone to start a family with because I’m about to turn 29 in a little over a month and I’ve been single for the last 4 years.


  4. Omg I loved reading this! As someone in their third year at uni, it’s so weird to me that I can see people pressuring themselves to get into relationships and settle down! In my head, 21 is still so young, and if you haven’t found the right person yet, why force yourself?!


  5. I LOVE being single! I’m so set in my ways now. I used to be so hung up on meeting ‘the one’ and now I’m just like cool, if it happens it happens, if not, my life’s pretty sweet!


  6. I love this post! I’ve pretty much always been single and there’s always such a pressure to be in a relationship. I mean, sometimes I do feel like I’m missing out but most of the time I’m happy to be with myself and enjoy putting myself first right now 🙂
