“What is a reason you are glad to be single?”
Why should I not be down in the dumps?
Let’s find out!
1. All-around good.
All of them. I am single for the last 10 years +-.
All my money is mine. All my time is mine. All my attention goes where I want it to go (minus distractions, hi Reddit).
In my view the planet is over-populated, so there is no serious thought of reproduction.
I just try to get fulfillment in life.
2. Whatever I want!
I can do whatever I want, whenever I want without checking in with anyone.
Also no woman should have to be subjected to my toxic family
Christmas is coming and I have no stress and it’s not expensive
4. A pain to pleasure.
I’m naturally very empathetic and a people pleaser. It’s a part of my brain that goes into hyperdrive when I’m with someone I like.
It’s not even conscious most of the time, but it can be exhausting. It’s nice that my brain can turn that part off when I’m alone.
Also I can wake up and go to sleep at any time I want without messing up my SO’s sleeping patterns.
And middle of the bed! And not needing to check in with his plans.
5. No guilt.
I can do whatever I want and not feel guilty about spending time with no one
6. Free for all.
F*cking freedom I love the single life
7. I’m enough.
Learned to love myself without needing anyone else’s words of affirmation after being single for the first time in a few years.
8. Out the other end.
As someone who got out of a 3 year long relationship about 4 months ago I would say one of the biggest thing I’m glad about being single is being able to see myself clearly again, you don’t realise how much being in a relationship can blind you to how you’ve changed, or how love can numb you to certain things, when I got out of that relationship and once the ential crying and being depressed phase ended I slowly realized how much happier I was and how much I’ve changed, some of it good and some bad, but it was like being able to see myself through a clear lens and not through a distorted one
9. A bad engagement.
I was engaged but broke it off in July after putting up with a lot of disrespect from him and his family.
I had quite a bit of money saved aside for our wedding but now I can spend it on things I’ve wanted for a very long time.
I am finally taking care of myself and learning more about who I am as an individual instead of being someone’s fiancé.
10. A clean break.
My apartment is clean and neat and most importantly, 95% empty
11. What a drag.
No longer feel like I’m dragging a dead body behind me through life.
12. Safe from hurt.
No one can cheat on/ abuse me.
13. Too much to take.
I don’t want to take into account someone else’s wants and needs when making life decisions.
I just graduated from college during Covid and I’m so lost so I don’t want to have a partner until I’m less lost.
I learned who I am after I decided to stop dating. It’s been 4 years being single, and I really love who I’ve become.
I was able to establish myself, my goals, and who I want to be.
Not having to deal with partners leaving you completely unfulfilled and always putting their bullsh*t above you.
Not having to argue to exist in the ways you do because their insecurities and lack of self worth smother your joy.
I guess it’s not all bad?
Are you single? How do you feel about it?
