I Love Being Single

Being single for some people means a total bliss, for others it is depressing. Regardless of one's point of view, being single comes with challenges:
  • dealing with uncomfortable questions from well-meaning relatives and friends;
  • the question of sexuality;
  • the hushed whispers; and more.
Sure, there are great things being in a relationship. But, there are many reasons also why I love being single. Many of them might sound really selfish, but that’s the point of being single, it’s about freedom.
  • When you’re single, you have the freedom to do whatever you want whenever you want.
  • The only person you are accountable to is yourself. Although, you are accountable to society at large.
  • You don’t have to remember birthdays, holidays, or anniversaries.
  • The single life allows you to experience everything for the first time, every time.
With all of these evidences, you must be wondering why single people can’t seem to find peace in their solitude.

Sometimes people truly believe that the “grass is greener” on the other side, some fear of being alone and others look for people to complement the qualities they themselves lack.

Are you single and loving it? Do you still have other reasons why you love being single? Feel free to post a comment.

Do I really love being single? Well, not really, not at all times. There are moments when it's a lot better to have someone to talk to. To help you make decisions. There are games meant for two players, I can't do it alone.


  1. Like--not having to ask permission or "discuss" my decisions.
    Not like--walking out to my car after church by myself while everyone else gets into a car with someone else.

  2. I know about the feeling freedom of not asking permission to anybody if we want to do something, but about discussing decisions, there are times when we need support or at least give us some light of things we haven't or missed to consider.
