I Am Single and Happy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 195 People

    Ever since I reach my 20.

    The most frequent question I get is “do you have a boyfriend?” Not only from my family members, relatives or classmates, but also from people who barely even know me like friends of my mom! It seems like whether having a boyfriend becomes an important identity for me. And...

    As posted before my boyfriend

    and I broke up a little while ago, and it a not that I'm overly upset about the relationship ending, I am genuinely happy being single but sometimes you just get lonely. And it's no that I don't have fantastic friends and family - I do, it's just I really want that extra and...

    I had a month-long relationship,

    and I think that's enough. I've found dating and whatever goes with it to be too complicated, so I think I'm happy remaining single for the rest of my life.

    I don't consider any relationship I've been in a relationship to be honest. I think it in some ways have to do with my mom, she wants to be in a relationship, and she always seem to get the wrong guys and they leave her and she get depressed to the point as a child I remember...

    I never thought I'd be

    so happy to be single. I don't need no man to tell me what I can and can't do. I do get lonely but I never stop telling myself it'll be okay. I'm truly happy with being single. ????

    I Love Being Free

    Love being single  I love being free. I love being my own boss. Why would I want to tied down with anyone?  I have friends for support, and I have friends for play.  I have a cat for companionship and when I want to be alone, poof I'm alone.  Its perfect.

    When I first joined EP I was in a toxic

    relationship with a sociopath. Now that I'm single and look back on my posts I feel so relieved to not be feeling those heavy sad and depressing feelings from knowing I was being lied to and cheated on. Now and then I have sad moments, but overall I am thankful that it's over...

    This 'happy To Be Single' Feeling Doesn't Happen Over Night.

    It may come from selfish motives, but man- being single during this time frame in life is so convinient and fitting to my lifestyle. No, not because I have the opportunity to hook-up with whoever, or spend less money on a significant other. But I've had the opportunity know...

    Tired Of Relationships

    I recently got out of a nearly 20-month relationship. This was the longest and the best that I'd ever had, but by the end of it I was feeling stifled. I realized that the romantic feelings of "love" that I thought I had simply weren't there, and so my then-girlfriend and I...

    Emphasis On "happy" Not "single" :)

    I've always been single. I've never had a boyfriend, and never been kissed. I'm proud of that too! I'm unique, there's not that many people like me, less that are my own age, and none near me. I have a heart too big to give to someone who won't appreciate it. This is like how I...
