We all end up ‘single’ at one point in our lives or another, there is no proper way to truly avoid it. That being said, some people spend most of their lives single whether they want to be with someone or not, why might this be?
Well, people end up staying single for a wide range of reasons. Sometimes they prefer to be alone and other times they are as lonely as they could possibly be. Everyone is different and everyone handles things in their own ways. That being said, you don’t have to be in a relationship to be happy, you can be single and happy.
However, most people do not understand the world of single people. Even those who are single sometimes don’t truly understand it in the ways they wish they did. Below I am going to go over some of the reasons why you might still be single and what they could mean for you. These things can be applied to anyone so if you aren’t single, I hope they help you to better understand that single friend of yours.
9 Reasons Why You Are Still Single:
1. You have too much on your mind for a relationship.
Sometimes we just feel like we have too much going on in our lives for a relationship and there is nothing wrong with that. You shouldn’t bring someone into your life if you don’t want to. If you think you have too much on your plate or on your mind adding to that might not be a good idea.
2. You don’t want to settle for just anyone.
Far too often people settle in life and in love, you might not want to be one of those people. You might be searching for Mr. Right and refuse to lower your standards. While this can be both a good and a bad thing it is a very common occurrence.
3. You are too caught up in getting where you want to be.
You are busy chasing your dreams and striving for your goals. You don’t want to be in a relationship right now because you just don’t have time. There is too much going on in your life and there is nothing wrong with waiting until you have done the things you want to do.
If you are still healing from a previous relationship bringing someone else into the mess is not a good idea. Sometimes we end up being single for a long time because we have to really look back and figure out who we are in general. Life is never as simple as we want it to be.
Relationships can be drama filled, sometimes they go over well and other times they don’t. If you aren’t into this kind of thing finding someone to be with is not going to be easy. Drama is something everyone has to deal with on some level especially when it comes to dating.
Some people prefer being alone, and they are perfectly happy and content. You don’t have to have someone to love just to be happy. True happiness comes from within.
7. You’re just focusing on your friends and family right now.
If you want to slow things down and focus on your friends and family go for it. There is nothing wrong with taking a break from dating to reconnect with those who care for you on a deeper level. Don’t let people put you down for enjoying the single life.
8. You don’t want to be tied down.
If you don’t want to be tied down you don’t have to be. Dating is not for everyone and some people end up being single their whole lives. To each their own, do what makes you happy.
9. You’re trying too hard to find someone to love.
Sometimes we end up being single for a long time even when we don’t want to be this is mostly because we look for love in all the wrong places. Once you stop looking if you truly want it, it will find you. Don’t worry, everything will work out how it is supposed to in the end.
