If you’re a close reader of my blog, you probably know that I am a big advocate of being single. I’ve been by myself for pretty much eight years now and for the most part, it wasn’t an issue, at all. I’m a true believer of “I don’t need a man to make anything happen” and it’s true, I really don’t, but I admit that I have my moments, where I think that it may not be so bad, after all. It probably has to do with me turning 30 and also with having my life at least halfway in order. Furthermore, almost every single one of my friends is in a relationship or married and I guess it does something to me. The winter season is also not very helpful, with Christmas and all.
So for once, I thought about why it wouldn’t be so terrible to be with someone, assuming it’s healthy and doesn’t make me feel terrible, all the time. Been there, done that. I mean, being single was a personal decision and not because I couldn’t find someone who wanted to be with me. There was just never someone great enough to make me change my mind. Even though I’m considering it now, he still has to be pretty amazing to make me fall for him. But maybe the following realizations will then remind me of why it’s not so terrible to have a boyfriend. And yes, I have friends, I have a family but it’s just different. I’m sure you know what I mean. And I’m also not as selfish as I may sound. Everything listed goes both ways, of course.
