Being Single. It's okay!

'Oh you're single... *sad head nod*...don't worry, there's someone out there for everyone'

Cheers then! This charming sentence was patronisingly thrown my way recently. I didn't ask for it, I wasn't whaling about my incapability to attract a partner and I hadn't downed a bottle of Chardonnay and grabbed a mic for a screeching rendition of 'All By Myself'
Being single is odd. Friends take an even keener interest in your love life, and suddenly transform into Cilla Black with a gaggle of single guys/girls keen to be your 'other half'. I've been coerced into joining an online dating site just so my friends could take a look at the singles hanging around my local area (Blimey, how dodgy did that sound!) They are content and thoroughly loved up in their relationships, but it's still fun looking out for people you may have spotted in the supermarket or that you used to go to school with isn't it!
 I'm the single detective people. 
But being single is also amazing. I can do what I want, when I want without concern over whether my partner will throw a shit fit if I choose to go to an event/all night rave/orgy rather than 'snuggle up' and watch a movie. Now I know, not all relationships are like that and most have a mutual appreciation of having time apart and your own interests, however I've yet to find a guy who is happy about that. Sure they think it's cool to begin with that their girlfriend isn't clingy and won't need to be called 'snugglepuff' and showered with 24/7 attention, but in practice most can't deal with it.
And please don't see it as a threat ladies in relationships, I don't want your boyfriend/husband/life partner. Just because I'm single doesn't mean I have the morals of an alley cat. I can hold a conversation with a guy and not want to have sex with him. Amazing isn't it! I recently got glared at for an entire evening whilst working at the pub because a group of girls had decided I wanted their boyfriends. I'd given them beer, they had paid me. Clearly well up for it.
I'm pretty independent so doing things by myself has never been an issue. I'll happily walk into a party on my own, and if I want to see a film at the cinema but can't find someone to go with, I'll go with me. I don't chew loudly and I know to put my phone on silent. Everyone's a winner. So until someone special comes along and can make me laugh till it hurts and is amazing in bed (not at the same time preferably) I'll happily stay single thanks.
(but if you are reading this Aidan Turner, 'pick me! pick me!')

*Being in a relationship is also okay, do what you want people!*


  1. Hey Lady

    I was just thinking about you yesterday and how I wanted to comment on your breaking up post - and then I read this one today.

    I split up with my ex of 8 years (almost 6 years ago now!) and it was the best thing I ever did. Oh my god, it was so hard. The single hardest decision I ever made but the minute it was done I knew I'd done the right thing.

    The freedom with being able to be selfish and live a life just for me was so liberating. I bloody loved being single.

    So just wanted to say, good on ya girl. xxx

  2. Incredible points. Outstanding arguments. Keep up the good
