I’ve Been Single Forever & I Like It That Way

I’m single AF and I’ve been this way for quite some time. You’d think I’d be out every day looking for the love my life is so desperately lacking, but I’m not. The fact is, I’m just not ready to start looking for my next relationship. Here’s why I’m comfortable with my life as-is:

I love my life the way it is. The truth is that I’m happy on my own. I don’t need a man to bring me joy because my life is amazing just the way it is. I don’t feel like something or someone is missing from my life. I don’t feel like half a person. I don’t need someone to complete me because I’m already whole. I love my life the way it is, so why would I want to risk my happiness on some guy?

I’m still getting over my past. Just because I’ve been single forever doesn’t mean I’ve never been hurt before. I’ve suffered a broken heart and trust me — it’s not something I have any interest in doing again. Being single is easy but relationships are hard. If my path is any indication of the future, love just isn’t worth the pain.

In all honesty, I want love to find me. I don’t want to have to look. It’s not that I’m just lazy, it’s that I don’t want to waste my life looking for something I might never find. The reality is that some people do end up alone and if I’m one of those women, so be it. I’ll still have my friends, my family, and myself. I won’t look for love, so if love is really meant to be in my life, it will find me.

I’m way too busy for something serious. I might be single but I still have a life — and a busy one at that. I have a career, friends and an extremely close family. I don’t just sit home every night and cry about how I’m single. I go out and live my life. If I’m this busy on my own, how am I supposed to throw a man who brings his own set of friends, family, and obligations into the mix?

I love my independence. I enjoy the fact that my life is entirely up to me. I’m free to do whatever the hell I want whenever the hell I want with no one else to consider. My life is completely my own. I may not have a partner but I don’t need one. I’m a truly independent woman and I don’t know if I could give up my freedom.

I’m too young for happily ever after. I’m still in my 20’s and just because I’m way past college doesn’t mean I’m ready to settle down. I still have so much life to live. I’m not ready to just be some man’s wife. I’m not ready for my story to be over. Happily ever after is an ending but my tale is just beginning.

I don’t want serious but I also don’t want a f*ck buddy. That’s way too casual for me. I wish there was an in between. I’m single AF but that doesn’t mean I want a relationship just for the benefits. I don’t want to date someone with no purpose but companionship, but I’m also not ready to sail off into the sunset. I’m simply stuck somewhere in between.

I’ll never be ready to get my heart broken. Love is rare and love is risky. There’s no guarantee that if I give a man my heart he won’t give it back in pieces. If I don’t look for love, though, and I just stay single, then my heart stays intact. Unless love finds me, I’m not going to go around gambling with something as fragile as my heart.

I might really be better off alone. Being single is what I’m good at, so why would I want to ruin a good thing? Adding someone else into the mix could throw off my whole equation. I’m happy with my life despite not having a relationship. Maybe I’m just one of those women who truly is better off on my own. What would be wrong with that?

Modern dating is too much drama for me. Between guys who ghost, guys who don’t text back, and everything in between I can’t deal with all this modern dating bullsh*t. The single life is just so simple. I don’t have guys that make me miserable. I have a life that makes me happy. So until the dating game becomes less dramatic and more fun, I’m in no rush to start looking for love.
