I'm Single and I'm Happy
Everyone is different. We all want different things out of life. There are lots of good reasons why you might not want a relationship or feel like you are not ready to have a relationship right now. There are also a lot of great things about being single:
- Your decisions only affect you and don't involve a boyfriend's or girlfriend's wants or needs
- You can concentrate on doing things you enjoy
- You can spend time with your friends and meet new people to have fun with
- Being single gives you time to reflect on your choices. There are plenty of other things that you can do, including spending time with other single people, joining a sports team, volunteering for a cause you care about, or other activities that would help you meet some new people.
