As someone who grew up inhaling rom-coms and teen paranormal romance books (you know you liked them too), I always put pressure on myself to be in a relationship. Often, I felt like the main purpose of life was to find someone to be with. Writing this now, I realize how silly that is. I really like who I am and as I grow up, I realize that I like being alone. I’m the type of person that needs a lot of space and being in a relationship would inevitably complicate that. While I am sure I’ll be in relationship eventually, I am going to enjoy this time alone and focus on myself. Here are some reasons being single is amazing.
