I thought I’d create a post on being single since a lot of us are and a lot of the time, it feels like we’re not meant to be. Who actually made it seem like we need to be in a relationship to be happy? I have no idea. But it was definitely a stupid move. I’d like to point out that these reasons aren’t to be taken seriously but rather just my own thoughts and whenever I see people being so happy in their relationships and seeing those mushy, annoying and endless things that couples post on Facebook ( you know what I’m talking about), I think back to these reasons and I remember why I’m so happy being single.

Bedtime

I think this is the most obvious one. If you’re in a relationship, chances are that both you and your partner like to take all the covers. And you also both like your own space in bed. Knee up against the small of your back, a hand flung in your face, snoring, goosebumps all over your body when you wake up in the middle of the night with no covers on you because your partner is in them like a wrap from Mcdonalds. Need I go on? So if you’re single, baby, you can starfish in that bed all you like. Arms, legs and hands flung out everywhere with no one to wake you up with their snoring. And best of all, you’re nice and warm with the duvet and every blanket to yourself!

Food sharing

I’m possessive of my food, I have to point that out. I share food very begrudgingly, as I’m sure a lot of us do. Especially when we’re at sensitive times or just need the food to keep us going through a long day. So why must partners insist on taking our precious food away from us? Granted, it’s never malicious and our partner probably thinks it’s cute to take the last chip or a bite from our burger. It isn’t. I don’t think I need to really stress how much more better it is to be single when you have a plate of food in front of you. Someone will get forked if they don’t stay back.

Alone time

I’ve been out with a couple of guys that never understood my need to be alone. I’ve always been a person who is just fine with their own company and I like to do my own thing, even as a child. The constant whining I got from guys whenever I only wanted to see them about once on the weekend or every two weeks just drove me crazy, I like my space! I know this reason won’t apply to everyone because obviously not all of us like having space from someone or like being alone, but I’ve never seen the need to constantly be around someone, even when you feel like you have to be near them. Being single means that I have no obligation to go anywhere or to even talk to anyone in a whole day. If you’re someone who’s always with their partner, try being spending some time with yourself for a few days, you could be quite surprised by how nice it is. On the other hand, if you’re getting a little bored from chilling by yourself, masturbate a little. At least then you wouldn’t be robbed of an orgasm ;).

Feelings

I’m not talking about anything specific here, but feelings seriously suck. I mean yes, they are nice to begin with, but have you ever thought how truly exhausting it can be to have feelings for someone? Just thinking about them 24/7 and not being able to function without a text or a call from them. It’s making me tired just thinking about it! I’m not one for feelings anyway so whenever it happens, it’s always so new and surprising to me and I never know how to handle it. When I became single after having so many feelings, it felt like a huge weight had suddenly been lifted, it was strange but also amazing. Plus it’s also difficult when they have feelings for you too. When feelings are involved, people often become clingy and when people become clingy, I feel like searching for some form of escape from them, like a walk in freezer to chill next to the packs of meat. So when you’re single and you see a couple that has their partner all over them, taking food from their plate, just remember that the non-clingy one is probably wanting to search for that freezer to be friends with a steak.

Friends and family

I’ve always noticed that when someone I know gets in a relationship, their friends and family always want to know who the person in question is. You’re probably thinking that it wouldn’t really bother you because your friends and family get on your nerves too often. But, just remember that if your new partner is somehow more accomplished than you in some way, you’ll feel extremely left out if all your friends and family want to do is get to know your amazing, accomplished partner. We all tolerate the people close to us on at least some level, but then instantly want them back to annoying us once their attention is towards someone else. Being single does mean that our family and friends are more likely to ask us questions that we don’t have the answer to, like “have you found a job yet” or “been on any dates lately?”. But at least they’re taking notice of us enough to bother to ask those questions. If you’re finding that your partner is getting too much attention from people you’re close to, then just..I don’t know..announce that you love Justin Bieber? I definitely think that would draw attention back to you. Foolproof plan!
