Yes. YES I am single but no, I am not looking to change that status anytime soon. A few months ago, I found myself on the verge of falling in love. I was so close but I crashed and burned before I even got there. That was the closes to being in love I ever got and it gave me an insight on how devastating unrequited love can be. It also helped me make up mind to finally face the person who has been waiting for me for over 8 years and tell him to stop but that is for another time.
Yes I am single. I am contented to be single because I realized that I should be loving myself first before letting others do the loving for me. Cliché but it is true. I see me friends and former classmates fall in and out of relationships faster than one changes their clothes. It’s both sad and exasperating. In my opinion, they have not realized what kind of desperate mentality they have set themselves in and they are so intent on having someone beside them believing that being in a relationship meant happiness and that they will somehow fall apart without one. It is like watching a train wreck about to happen. I am one of those people who prefers to stand by the sidelines and observe.
I am single by choice because I know that I do not need a man to be happy. I have a long way to self-discovery and learn more about myself. Until then, I am not ready for a man to love me.
Your pain in the ass,
