Unico. Enda. Uno. Solo. Unique. Single.
What I often wonder is why people find it so difficult to view the state of being single as a period where an individual is happy to be without a romantic partner that they are enjoying the fruits of singlehood and self-company and even if that special someone does not come along, it’s still alright because they know and they are confident that indeed, love exists in way too many forms. It could also be a conscious choice to remain single because a person is perfectly at peace with whatever his/her current situation is and does not find it compelling and necessary to be with someone else. Being single doesn’t have to stem from any kind of commitment phobia or a deep-rooted hatred for the same/opposite sex. Their choice to be single doesn’t mean that they are not willing to ever enter a relationship. It just might mean that being single for them is a whole lot of fun or perhaps, they whole-heartedly and sincerely accepted the fact that working out a relationship is not everyone’s cup of tea
and to those who chose to be single, if you really are happy being single, you just have to stop treating 'it' as the annoying time that you pass between relationships and embrace it. Rather than focusing on what you lack, focus on what you have, You.
