Being Single

It’s hard to believe that being single IS A BLESSING
  • You don’t have to get up early in the mornings to care for a baby or the slamming of doors.
  • You’re able to enjoy life, e.g. not having to take care for your significant other and yourself.

Why most people get into relationships

Want a partner to benefit them

Boyfriends/girlfriends are able to benefit that person’s feelings e.g. Sammi is a very positive influence and she is dating Peter. Peter gets very depressed fairly easily, however, Peter has Sammi to comfort him whenever he’s down. The feelings you’re missing are hoped to be complete with that right influence by your side.

Learn to be fully content with who you are before jumping into a relationship. When you depend on someone for happiness and one day they don’t provide that happiness, you’ll end up feeling hurt. Your happiness and joy shouldn’t come from another person.

 

Wanting to fit into the “normal” or crowd
  • Your feelings for your partner may not be true if you’re only dating them because all your friends around you have significant others.
  • Seeing your friends relationships is great and all… but it may not be true. You don’t know what’s happening behind closed doors, so why would you want to mimic such unhealthy behaviour?

Panic button

Relationships are not on a timer. Recently, I was told that a man found his first love and married at the age of 40. Ludicrous I know, but it just goes to show you that LOVE is out there for you. Just live, chill and relax without the mindset of getting a boyfriend or girlfriend.

Β Being Single

Get to know yourself first
  • Figure out your likes and dislikes.
  • Spend more time being grateful – YOU’RE FREE!
  • Focus on your studies

 

It’s time now being single to discover who you’re and be more comfortable with yourself and your life path before entering into a relationship.

Time to prepare
  • Learn what it takes to be in a relationship.
  • Find what you want in another person’s character – by doing this, you’ll be more prepared and have a higher chance of a successful relationship.

    I love this post! Lately I’ve been thinking that romantic love is pretty overrated. Although love is a great thing, there is so much more to life than falling in love and getting married–and there are so many other types of love, too. πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you enjoyed reading the post! I believe in romantic love and I’m waiting on what, God has in stored for me. However, being single, I need to focus more on life rather than on dating, as only God can provide me with the right boyfriend.

      I think love is needed in a relationship in order for it to strive. Love is the glue to the puzzle pieces.

      Getting married or being single is FINE with God. 😊
