I am learning to be okay with it. I would rather be single than be in a relationship with someone just to avoid being alone. Trying to learn to value my own company, keep myself busy, and find happiness without having to be with someone all the time.
The single life gets lonely a lot; especially around the holidays. The trade off being able to do your own thing whenever without having to explain yourself to anyone/anytime, which is kind of nice. Overall though I like being in a relationship. Companionship, regular sex, blah blah blah.
I'm single but only because I've weeded out a lot of guys that are high maintenance. While in these friendships (not with benefits!), I would get stressed out so much and now that I'm single, I feel liberated and able to focus on my homework and look forward to new things. It gets lonesome sometimes but I'd rather be alone than with bad company.
I'm choosing to not seek out or date anyone because #1 I'm unemployed. I wouldn't date a guy with no job so I'm not going to seek a man while I'm unemployed. #2 I'm in therapy for issues non traumatic and traumatic alike.
i was okay with it for quite a while but now i want a guy. it's been too long and i need a guy to date (and makeout with, lets be real here)
It depends. I like being single because it means I can hang out with a lot of girls and do whatever I want. But sometimes there aren't a lot of women around me who aren't always so busy and flakey. So that's when being single becomes lonely. When there is literally no one who will do anything with me. That probably the time to just get a good old-fashioned girlfriend.
Eh at times it's great, at times it sucks. It doesn't help that my friend's girlfriends hate me because I don't allow the conversation of feminist agenda when I'm around. But being single isn't as bad as it sometimes feels.
