A Single Life

Being single is a blessing, and certainly not a curse. Take it from me.

I know some of you will object, but finding your one true love isn’t meant to be rushed and does not have a deadline. So is marriage. Everything takes time, and patience is the key. And of course, there are people who would rather focus on their career than their love life. I find it amusing, to be honest. Besides, what’s the point of falling in love when you can’t even support yourself?

That aside, is there really a need to find your one true love? While some people are desperately searching for one, those who have are either happy to have one or not happy with the one they have right now. Come on, what’s the point of being in a relationship when your heart’s not in it? You know how relationships can be unpredictable, right? And you certainly knew how painful it is to break up with someone you’ve loved for a long time. Heck, even marriages don’t last and tend to end up in divorce.

I’m growing old now, and I know there are some people wondering why I am still single at this point.  Well, I was wondering why there are some people who wanted to get married so early in their lives. In the end, you can decide what to do with your own life and not let others influence you into doing the same thing, like desperately trying to start a relationship with someone who will break your heart in the end.  Well, why bother?

Does it really bother me that I’m still single until now? Of course, not. After all, relationships may prove to be difficult if you’re not prepared for it or your heart’s not really into it. Not to mention that your love life may restrict some activities you used to enjoy, such as partying at the bar and a boys’/girls’ night out. After all, having a relationship comes with a promise to remain faithful to your partner and certainly not to cheat on him/her. Of course, there’s also a promise to stay together ’til the very end. Oh well, it seems like I’m definitely not into having a relationship with someone, even if she appears to be my soul mate. Nope, I’m not that kind.

I’m not keen on getting married since I’m not capable of being a good husband to my potential wife. Not to mention that I don’t want to end up like my dad. And I certainly don’t want to be a dad. Sorry, but that’s how the way it goes. I guess you already know why I said this… it’s just that I don’t want to.

Now that I’m growing old, they would probably ask when will I get married. Well, I only have one answer, and that is… I’m not planning to. Again, that’s just the way it goes.

You know, being single isn’t really bad at all. You see, you’ve got all the freedom you need and you don’t have to stress yourself with lots of arguments and too many expenses during dates and wedding preparations. Oh well, I can’t believe I said such things, but I only speak what’s on my mind.

Anyway, there’s no need to search for your one true love out of desperation. Believe me, it will come one day… but until then, enjoy being single.
