While there may have been a time when you hated rolling solo and wanted nothing more than to find a nice guy to settle down with, you’re finally in a place where being single isn’t just OK — it’s actually a conscious choice. You’re enjoying life on your own terms, and being in such a positive place comes with a whole lot of amazing realizations.
You’re picky, and that’s a good thing.
You’re not about to settle down into a relationship with the wrong person just so you can call yourself somebody’s girlfriend. You’re ready to find The One and you know shacking up with just anybody isn’t going to help you land the love of your life.
You’re better off alone.
Half of people in relationships are unhappy — if they weren’t, the divorce rate wouldn’t be so high. You can be glad that you’re not one of them, wasting your precious time on something that isn’t going to last.
There’s nothing wrong with you.
Just because you don’t latch on to someone doesn’t make you a leper. You’re embracing the fish-filled sea and choosing wisely because you know deep down that being alone is much better than being with the wrong guy.
You’re too amazing to be with just anyone.
You’re smart, funny, beautiful and a million other things, and you won’t date just anyone for the sake of being in a relationship. You know that the key to a good relationship is respecting what you deserve and not settling for less.
You don’t need validation from anyone but yourself.
You can look in the mirror and see a knockout regardless of whether or not you share your bed with someone at night. You know just how beautiful a person you are, inside and out, and not needing anyone to confirm it is magnificent.
You’re happy on your own.
And it’s going to take someone as unique and beautiful as a unicorn to come into your life and mess that up. He could make your life that much better, yes, but you’re not willing to risk that for just anyone.
Being attached doesn’t make you a better person.
Just because your (ruder) friends seem to act superior because they have boyfriends and you don’t doesn’t mean you’re less than them. They don’t have something you don’t, they just happened to find love sooner. Your time will come when you want it to.
You’re not to be pitied.
You don’t feel sorry for yourself, and others shouldn’t either. When they do hit you with a condescending “I’m sorry you’re single” look, just remind them that you’ve decided you deserve the best when it comes to your life-long love.
You don’t need to be completed.
You’re already a wonderfully whole person and finding your other half just isn’t necessary. Others may not get that, but hey, it’s your life, not theirs.
You’re a hard catch.
And that’s the way you like it. Finding true love isn’t easy so you’re not going to pretend it is by falling for any guy that wants you. You know that it’s hard work finding a forever thing so staying alone is a way better bet until you do.
