Being Single Is Not Bad

Why do people look at others who are single, as miserable, or feel sorry for them, or look at you like you're not validated without anyone? Maybe it's my perception but it's also my experience that I've had people come to me like this as if my life has no meaning without a man. Maybe the men experience this too and can chime in. I am focusing on fulfilling my goals, and building myself up, financially, educationally, and still just being a better me in all aspects, emotionally, and mentally. I would much rather be single than be in a relationship feeling confused, insecure,jealous, be wondering, or be unfulfilled in any manner. I am a very passionate person and can only be with a man I have a chemistry with and its usually strong and unavoidable which is why I've had so few. It's all or nothing with me. My point is you can still live a full life, and be happy even if you're alone. I'm a patient young woman, who still has a lot to achieve and I won't settle for less than I deserve, or want.

Good for you! I'm glad you believe this. It is too bad more women don't have this mindset. It took a few bad relationships for me to realize that I deserve a good man too and don't need to settle. Congrads and best of luck with all your dreams!
