While doing your Saturday morning shopping you’re surrounded by people. Couples walking hand in hand, smiling and chatting. As you look at them you wonder how they met. Were they shopping, doing the laundry or browsing an internet dating site?
And right about the same time you can’t help but feel that you want to be part of a twosome as well. Rest assured, you’re not alone. Lots of singles feel exactly the same way. You wonder why you haven’t found someone to share your life with. You always thought you would; you went to school, have a good job, but you haven’t fallen in love.
Nor have you gotten married or had children like you had planned. It would seem that Life has a plan of its own for you. But don’t despair! You can’t give up. Keep a positive attitude because it’s only a matter of time, and timing, before you meet someone to spend the rest of your life with.
While you’re on your quest for a partner, you still need to live your life to the fullest So take advantage of your single status and do the things that you might not be able to do if you were part of a couple.
1.Go on a trip on the spur of the moment. Let’s say your best friend has an extra ticket to a concert out of town; one that you really want to attend. Your single status works in your favor; no one’s feelings will be hurt if you pack an overnight bag and just take off.
2. You can date as many people as you like. As a single man or woman you can date a few people at a time until you make the choice to settle down with one person.
3. You get your whole living (and sleeping) space to yourself. No sharing the remote, no one hogging the blankets. You can stay up and sleep in as late as you want, and play the music you want whenever you want.
4. If your plans suddenly change because you have a last minute invitation to dinner or a party, you don’t have to phone home to let anyone know.
5. Though this will depend on your budget, you can cook or eat out as often as you’d like. Pleasing yourself also holds true for tidying up and cleaning, though I’m not suggesting you let your place become a dump.
Although many of these things mention above may sound selfish, they are things to consider when dating. Knowing that you can do what you want when being single and knowing this changes slightly when you are involved could help one know that life does change and help them to adjust themselves accordingly. This way, when you do finally meet that special someone you might be more willing to inform them of your whereabouts.
Reflecting on these points can also help you decide whether you really do want to be attached to one person for the rest of your life. It can be a wonderful experience, but it’s not for everyone. So make the most of your single life while you’re looking for The One.
