We’re so lucky to live in a time where being single at 22 isn’t seen as a bad thing anymore. Back when my grandparents were my age, it was expected that you got married and had at least one child by the age 20! I honestly can’t imagine having to have found a man to tie myself to for the rest of my life and also have a kid to look after at this age…I can only just look after myself!
Now I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with people who do this, I know plenty of people my age that have kids, some of which are married too and they’re really happy. But that just isn’t for me!
Even thought things have changed and there’s no longer a stigma around being single, I still get people constantly asking me why I’m single and why I’ve not found a guy to settle down with yet. Simple answer- I don’t want to!
So I thought I’d make a post for all my fellow single ladies, and to show just how blooming great it can be!
Now I don’t know about you but I love to sprawl all over my bed and hate sharing it! Being single means no legs kicking you in the back and no one trying to steal your covers!
If you want to watch reruns of The Worst Witch and Charmed you can do, no one next to you moaning that they don’t like it and want to watch something else. As if it’s actually possible not to love The Worst Witch anyway!
If you want to just curl up in bed and have a lazy day that involves nothing more than eating your own body weight in chocolate, you can. No one nagging you do something when you don’t want to.
Or guys, whatever your thing is, you can have a random night in with your bestie…provided they aren’t like mine who doesn’t live near me and neither of us can drive…that one sucks!
Okay this one is probably just exclusive to me and my ex but he would go ballistic if I ate crisps around him, as he said he couldn’t stand the sound and would get really pissy if I did it.
Or more likely a big mug of tea, as I’m not really much of a drinker outside social situations. If you just want to lounge around in your comfies and have some “me time” you can do. No having to give someone else your attention, you can focus completely on you.
This gives you more money to spend on yourself, hello new lipstick! Or you know, more money to spend on your parents at Christmas which is what I usually do because I love treating them.
I’ll just leave this one here, if you know you know!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m a twenty-five-year-old digital media graduate with a passion for writing and a desire to change the way we view mental health and autism. I’ve owned jademarie.co.uk for nearly two years now, and its slowly changed from a place where I would brain dump whatever was going through my head that day, into a place where people can come for help, advice and hopefully a bit of a laugh. I do occasionally come out with a witty sentence or two. Mostly by accident.
