Is it bad to be single?
Sometimes it feels like there are couples everywhere, and that there’s pressure to be in a relationship.
The truth is, everybody’s different.
Maybe you don’t want a relationship or you don’t feel ready for one. That’s ok – there’s nothing wrong with being single. You’re not automatically lonely because you’re not part of a couple.
And remember, being single is heaps better than being in a bad relationship.
Good things about being single
- do what you want when you want
- flirt with who you want when you want
- go as many dates as you want
- focus on other things like friends, hobbies, sports, and study.
The best way to find someone or to not mind being single for now, is to be happy with yourself.
Get to know what you want and what makes you happy.
Remember, it’s ok to be single.
