As of a few weeks ago, I can officially put my hands up to the Beyonce song - I'm a single lady!
The thing I don't understand is why everyone else seems to be worried for me - I'm happy to be on my own, in fact, I've been missing it for some time. People try to set me up on dates, constantly check if I'm ok and a bunch of other really unnecessary fuss is created around this life change.

Yes, I'm single, just graduated from university and don't really have a job lined up, but I'm happy...isn't that all that really matters?

Ladies, what do you think?

As long as you're happy that's all that should matter! Maybe people are just worried about you - some people handle breakups worse than others, so perhaps they are concerned that you are down in the dumps. And since you aren't, make it clear to them that you don't want to be set up on dates and really are fine!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being single, especially if you are in transitioning point in your life (finishing school, starting something new)!

I think its fine we all need me time for ourselves. Why rush getting into a new relationship. I find those never work. Rebounds,flings whatever you call it you know when you just jump from relationship to relationship like some sorta frog leaping into Lilly pads(hows that for a metaphor?)

I think sometimes people - well meaning though they are - forget that you are a whole person. You aren't missing anything or half of a person because you are single.

Being single isn't a bad thing and it certainly doesn't mean you are missing anything or doing something wrong. I think the best thing you can do is chalk it up to good intentions gone annoying. Try to tune out the unnecessary fuss and figure out what you want to do with your life (long term, short term), what kinds of experiences you want to have, etc.

Being single is a great opportunity to explore new interests, travel, start something new. Your friends and family only want what's best for you but sometimes people don't realize that where you are right now may be what's best for you now.

This is the life! on May 17, 2010 @ 04:58 pm

I think this is the perfect time for you to be single.
You are done school and are able to do anything you want.
There is nothing tying you down, so you can grasp onto any opportunity that comes your way.
Everyone needs sometime to just be a "me" instead of an "us".
It gives you a better perspective on what YOU want out of YOUR life.
Enjoy it!

Hi! =D

There's absolutely nothing wrong with being single so long as you're okay with it. I've been single for about three years after a horrendous breakup, and honestly, I just didn't feel like being with someone else afterwards. I'm still young, and I think it's really important to learn who you are. You can't love someone else if you can't love yourself and you can't love yourself if you don't know who you are, you know?

Hah! =D My friends try to set me up all the time too, I just tell them I'm good on my own, and so long as I have them as friends, for right now, I don't need anyone else.

Single and Loving It on May 28, 2010 @ 07:21 pm

I can totally relate with the original post.
I recently broke up with my boyfriend of 5 years. It was a very amicable breakup and I have nothing but great things to say about my ex. But it is almost like some people around me what me to be depressed and sad. But i do believe that some people expect you to act the way that they would if they were in that same situation.
I am very happy to be single and although I do cherish those five years with my ex and we remain friends, I couldn't be happier to be at this point in my life. I feel liberated and I am loving the my "me" time. I am in no rush to get into another relationship anytime soon.
People need to stop associating break ups with negative feelings and see it instead as the beginning rather than the end. Sometimes breakups happen for good and for me that is certainly the case.
