You’re single because you’re single. It’s not
because you texted too much or too little or waited 33 minutes to
respond because he took 23. It’s not because you met up
with your ex that night at 5 a.m. that no one knows about, or
because you kissed another boy after a date with a loser.
You’re not single because you spit food on that date or
tripped coming out the the movie theatre. You’re not single
because you hurt your first boyfriend really badly when you were
15 or because you have yet, to this day, to apologize. It’s
not because you were secretly jealous when your friend got a
boyfriend or that a guy you dated for two months now has a really
cute girlfriend and looks really happy. And you’re happy
for him. But still ill that he found someone before you.
You’re not single because you slept with your ex
boyfriend. You’re not single because half the world found
out when you didn’t even want to remember it yourself.
You’re not single because you think the guy your friend
wants to hook you up with is ugly or not tall enough. It’s
not because you’re not willing to put up with someone who
doesn’t brush their teeth on a regular basis.
You’re not single because your standards are too high. Good
for you for having standards. It’s not because you
didn’t like that really, really good guy who wanted to take
you on a date and you just weren’t feeling it. And
it’s not because you like to wear pajama pants as soon as
you get home and wash all the makeup off your face. You’re
not single because you didn’t learn enough from the past or
would rather chill on a Friday night with your blanket and a cold
beer than shower, get ready, and go out. You’re not single
because something is wrong with you.
You are single because you are single. It’s really as
simple as that. You haven’t made the connection with
another heart yet. You can get dolled up, dress cute, cut your
hair, dye your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, put on lipstick and
you may still. be. single. You can go out to a bar hoping to meet
the love of your life and not find a single one in the place
attractive. And it’s going to remain that way until
it’s time for you to find one. Stop hoping for it. Start
living the life that you do have instead of wishing for things
that you don’t have. There will come a time you’ll
meet a boy and you’ll have to give up some of this single
freedom you currently have. Start being more thankful. Start
doing that now.
