ON BEING SINGLE

Hey everyone!

Valentine's Day is here, and I am still single. Although I do want to say it's okay to be single and focus on yourself, sometimes I can get lonely. I like to cuddle and my brothers are not cute five year olds who likes hugs anymore. As a person who likes to use physical contact as a way to show affection in a world where a lot of people mistake it as romantic affection instead of platonic affection, I am not getting a lot of physical contact. It sucks.

I like to roll around in my bed as a way to deal with it. I'm not sure why it makes me happy, but there you go. The strange habits of a strange girl. Besides that, since I've been single for a while, I've learned a lot about who I am, what I like, and what I dislike. It's one of the reasons why I'm happy that I'm single as I notice that once someone gets into a relationship, both persons involved start to imitate each other a little bit. It's kind of cute, but kind of scary. You can easily lose yourself in a relationship if you're not careful.

I've seen it happen in a lot of relationships, and if a relationship ends, the aftermath is horrible. A person ends up with someone else's little habits and ideas, and they don't know who they really are. That's why I advocate for people to take time away from the dating scene to be them again. You need to know what you want in life and in a relationship before starting over again. It's scary to be alone, but it'll benefit you in the long run.

Thanks for reading!
