Do we really need relationships or romantic love in order to survive or be happy?

Anonymous

It is such a freeing feeling for me to have given up completely on finding love or seeking relationships. I’m a 23 years old female virgin who never been in a relationship and I’ve recently decided to remain this way, maybe forever and it wouldn’t bother me.

I realised it is not worth the trouble, and I’m very high on the soul, and I realised that most people only care about the external compared to the internal. So it’s not something I want to seek anymore. « Yeah you’ll find the right person, there are people who value the same things as you » yeah yeah or maybe there isn’t? And I don’t want to live my life seeking a fantasy.

It’s like a weight have been lifted off my shoulders, I no longer live through the male gaze or seek validation, because I no longer desire relationships with men, unless it’s platonic friendship, so it doesn’t matter to me anymore.

I found there is so much more to life, travelling, studying, doing art, nature, museums, friendships, meeting new souls every day. I don’t know why there is such a big emphasis on romantic love and on sexuality. I honestly feel way better off without it.

Anyone feeling the same way?
Anyone who is older than me and lead a celibate life so far? How’d it go?
