Yeah, I know what kind of question is that. I was just asked this question yesterday and honestly I get this question often.
BTW.....Current Status: Happily Single.
So, yes, I enjoy being single. Why? There are many reasons. For starters, I'm single, not fucking dead (🙄...quickly followed by... 😂). In all honesty, at this point in my life being single is certainly my choice. I use the term my choice because at some point in life it would have been easier to say "I can't find someone" and "dating is hard" while, that may be an underlying factor and 100% FACT, I'm actually choosing to not go in search of love right now.
Yeah, there are dating apps, but at this point in time, I'm just not interested. And guess what, that is allowed and okay! Ladies...we're allowed to stay single until we're ready. I'm interested in finding the right person and not just someone for the sake of being able to change my status.
Admittedly, sometimes, it's hard because all of my friends are married, with children, so they are not readily available. That's also another reason I tend to do a lot of things on my own, and another reason I started this site as well. While it's great to have a core group of friends, it's also nice to connect with others outside of that group who may be in a similar situation. Even if they are not, it's still nice to get out (IRL/Virtual) and meet new people. Find others with common interests and you never know who you'll meet.
At the end of this life reboot journey I'm on, I'd love to find the person for me but, until then I'm going to take the time while I am single and live. I'll continue to get to know myself and grow. I'll work on determining how this person will fit into my life when we meet. And, guess what if it happens, great! If not, then I know that I didn't waste time by not enjoying my one and only life.
One thing I have always told myself when looking for a relationship is,
I don't need someone to make me happy. I want someone who will add to my life.
So, for all my single ladies, do you get asked this question? Even if you're not single now, did you get this question when you were? How did you feel about being single at the time?
