Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and for some people that means a romantic nice day with the boyfriend/girlfriend doing nice and romantic things. However, for me that is not the case, nor has it ever been on the 14th February. Every Valentine’s Day that I have been alive so far has always consisted of me, myself and I. I am very much a single pringle. I’ve never had a special someone on Valentine’s Day that has been able to buy me flowers and other things that people may want on this ‘special’ day. However, I’m ok with that.
I have never really understood Valentine’s Day, as in my opinion you should celebrate love everyday, not just one day of the year, however, that doesn’t mean I hate on someone else’s parade when they say they have Valentine’s Day plans, in fact I love hearing about them as I love seeing people so happy and excited and in love (but it also doesn’t mean that you need to rub it in my face!)
I have never been one of those people that sits on the floor eating a tub of ice cream crying that no one has asked me out for Valentine’s Day. I’m not that pathetic! Don’t get me wrong I would love boyfriend as I am in love with the idea of love, however, I am not actively looking for someone all the time as I really like being single, therefore here is a list of why I am perfectly happy remaining single (for now, I don’t want to be forever alone 😂).
This is a really important one for me, I love spending time on my own. In fact I need time alone! I like having my own space to just do things that I like. I can do what I want, when I want, and that is something that I’m not ready to give up.
When you first start dating someone, the dates normally follow as, going out for dinner, cinema trips, days out and many other expenses such as birthdays, Christmas’ and anniversaries. You can use that money and spend it on booking a trip to Disney (or maybe something like clothes or shoes, but lets be real, another trip to Disney is better than all that 😂).
I don’t know about you, but I have a pretty busy life. I feel like that you have to book time to see me like a year in advance to make sure that I am available. With everything that I do I get booked up very quickly! If I did have a boyfriend/partner, I don’t think I could fit them in, and any time I do have for myself I like to do things that I want to do.
Taking my Time
I can take as long as I want in the shower! There is no one there (apart from my Mum) who can hear me singing awfully in the shower. I can take as long as I want doing my makeup. There is no pressure to hurry (unless I’m running late for college and then I do have to rush my makeup!)
I can watch all of my favourite TV shows without worrying that my partner hasn’t watched that episode. There is no guilt (ok little guilt) about clicking next episode when we are supposed to be watching it together.
There is no one to share a bed with! I can have my king size bed all to myself, and let me tell you, that is the most wonderful thing.
Focus on You
Most of these reasons are about me and doing more for myself, so I guess thats the real BIG thing why I love being single.
Don’t get me wrong, if I found someone tomorrow that I thought was right I bet all my ideas would change and I would want to spend every waking moment with that person, but as I am right now, I am loving this single life!
