I am 26 and I am single – and that’s 100% okay. I’ve had a couple serious boyfriends and a couple flings here and there. But for the most part, I’ve spent the past few years of my life single. I’ve learned more about myself and what I want in life in these past few years because of the experiences I have had while not being in a relationship.
A few months ago, I met this beautiful and confident woman. I had never spent one on one time with her, but while I was sitting alone on a Saturday afternoon, I decided to text her to see if she wanted to meet up for lunch. I ended up spending the next 5 hours enjoying the perfect breeze over lunch and beers with my new friend. We sat and talked about exactly what I stated above. Being single, has made us who we are today and made us so comfortable in our own skin. She said, “I’m not going to act fake or doubt anything I say or do, because I’m being myself. If he doesn’t like that, then we won’t work out.” Preach! Those words are key. I hear too many single girls my age saying how they are never going to find the one and too many single girls questioning every single text they send. While being single can be a bit of a struggle at times, you can’t have the attitude of never going to find someone and you can’t question your every word. I’m 26. I’m still so young and have so much time to meet the love of my life. So do you.
