This myth reveals more about the person who says it, than who they’re saying it to. If you believe that true happiness is dependent on another person, then you don’t know what true happiness is. I truly believe that if you cannot be happy alone, then you aren’t really happy. Reflect on your own thoughts. Listen to your own needs. Realize that your wants matter. You can be single. You can be unhappy. You can even be a single person, who happens to be unhappy with life. HOWEVER, being single does NOT mean you’re unhappy. They are NOT directly relate(d). This is not a cause and effect relationship! *in my best mean girls voice* The limit does not exist!
So early this summer I was eating lunch at an Austin restaurant alone. I moved to Austin by myself last summer, and I didn’t know my roommates enough to hang out with them, so I ate alone. But anyways, this guy decided to come up to me and start a conversation:
Him: You are way to pretty to be eating alone
Me: Hmmm well at least you have good taste
Him: Are you single?
Him: Well today is your lucky day, I am just the guy you’ve been looking for
Me: *hysterically laughs* Who lied and told you I was looking for anyone
Him: *awkwardly chuckles*
He was cute, but wrong…just so sooooo wrong! *snaps in z formation* Why does everyone think that “single” is synonymous with “searching”. I am single, but I am not on the hunt. It’s not mating season. #letmelive
*face palms* There is a difference between being alone, and being lonely. I really, really like being alone. *Kanye shrugs* Lol I know that sounds weird, but I enjoy my own presence. I love being surrounded by my own thoughts, because let’s be honest….i’m hilarious! *twirls* I thinks it’s funny when people in a relationship call single people lonely, because there are few things lonelier than being in a one-sided relationship. Have you ever been in a relationship where you were the only one in love? Have you ever been in a relationship where you were the only one that cared? Have you ever been in a relationship where you are the only one that tried? Well…I have. Being alone while you’re in a relationship is the worst kind of lonely. You can be single, without being alone. #leavemealone
I HATE when people say this! #juststop Let me be clear: If a man has a problem with my career goals, or is intimidated by my drive; then I don’t want that man!!! *snaps in Z formation* I believe that everything happens for a reason. I shouldn’t have to change my dreams to get a ring. If it’s right(,) it’ll happen. #imnotbossy #imtheBOSS
I have an Aunt that thinks women my age who choose to be single are “loose". Well….then. *side eyes* What you choose to do with your body is you choice, and it is none of my business. However, being single is not synonymous with being adventurous with my body. My perfect #sassysinglesaturdaynight is laying down in my robe and binging on “Friends” and “Girlfriends” on Netflix. So let me live! It’s my life…and my body!
People get really angry when I say that I want to be older when I get married. “Do you not want kids?” they yell. Hmmmmm I’m sorry…since when did my ovaries become any of your business? What’s meant to be will be. So mind your business! *snaps in Z formation*
