Lately, I have seen a lot of memes across various platforms directed exclusively towards ridiculing people who are single. It’s almost as if being single has become a taboo. What people don’t realize is that it can be a choice too, rather than a chance. I strongly feel that being single doesn’t mean that there is nobody who wants you; it means there is nobody worthy enough who can get you. If you’ve too found yourself wondering why you are single, let me confirm you, it’s not always the wrong things that keep you solo.
Here’s a list of all the right reasons that make you independent and keep you single.
1. YOU HAVE GREAT FRIENDS
Shopping, movies, parties, night-outs? You already have your own wolf-pack to go with. Even if you need someone to fall back upon emotionally, you always have your friends around you. You never felt lonely, and the need for being in a relationship never struck you.
2. YOU DON’T FIND SETTLING A PRIORITY
With so much to focus on your life right now, you don’t feel the need to settle down with someone yet. For you, settling down relates more towards your career and not with another person.
3. YOU ARE HAPPY AND CONTENT
Your focus is ‘you’. You are already having the time of your life and are loving every moment of it. For you, staying focused on your life, career, and family is more important; a relationship is nothing but a distraction.
4. YOU DON’T LIKE TO BE CONTROLLED
When someone tries to control you, you feel exasperated. You want certain things according to your needs and thus don’t want the baggage of being controlled. You love living independently and don’t like being instructed a lot.
5. YOU LOVE EXPLORING THE NEW
Meeting new people and exploring new places is what intrigues you the most right now. You love to break the monotony of life by making new friends and travelling to unknown places. Settling down with someone seems like a nonchalant thing to do.
6. YOU HAVEN’T FOUND THE ONE YET
You know what you want from your future partner and haven’t found him yet. Most of the people you meet, are not exactly someone you see yourself with and thus, you want to wait for your Mr Right. After all, the right person is worth the wait. Why settle for less?
7. YOU AIM HIGH
Right now, you know what you want from your life. You peg yourself as someone who can achieve a lot if you focus on your career. You know this is the best time for your career and don’t want to be held down by commitments which are hard to keep.
8. YOU DON’T WANT ANY EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE
You have got a ‘To-Do’ list and don’t have a lot of time explaining yourself or your acts to others. Carrying unnecessary heart-rending baggage, which is always there in a relationship, is not on your mind.
9. NOBODY CAN MATCH YOU
Whenever a guy meets you, he feels awestruck with your confidence and your wits, which may make him think twice before approaching you. Don’t lower yourself down for someone and continue to be the best version of yourself.
Being single is not a bad thing; being in a relationship isn’t the best of the things either. It’s all about what your heart wants at a particular time. So, follow it.
