“Being Single is not a Disease”

You’re single. You’re friends are all into committed relationships. You feel you are in a healthy and committed relationship with yourself. Life seems easier being single; there’s no one to argue with, no one to leave the toilet up and no in laws you have to “fake like”. Sadly your friends and family see you as a hopeless romantic, always pressuring you to get out of “singleness”.

Since you are a great looking person; inside and out, it’s hard for people to understand your choice of being single. It’s your choice. Whenever people do find out your relationship status it’s always this shocking statement “You’re Single?!!!”, followed by “Why Are You Single?” then “Well what’s wrong with you?” People seriously begin to look at you as if you have this “Single Disease” and you must either be cured right away (hooked up with someone) or be quarantined (friends begin to stray away).

The worst thing you could do in this situation is fall into the idea something is actually wrong with you. Being single is not a disease, it’s a personal choice which is perfectly fine. You know what you want, when you want it and with who to share it with. Your surroundings can’t understand these terms thanks to society. If you aren’t posting pictures your #ManCrushMonday or #WomanCrushWednesday, you’re now the outsider.


The best part about being single is the confidence you gain with loving yourself first. Usually us single folk are focused on bettering ourselves before we can give ourselves to another person. What happens next is a true genuine happiness we can share with that special person when ready.

  1. Great article and being single is courageous..you do learn and know what you truly want and you won’t settle for lesser standards-for the sake of saying you have a boyfriend/girlfriend..you must love and like yourself before getting into a relationship period.
