I have a few friends who are in relationships who always tell me how much they want to be single and I look at them and think why, though?
I firmly believe they don’t understand just how dire it is to try and date in London in 2016 (or maybe I’m just looking at the wrong places to meet nice normal guys but we will get on that in a future post).
It might be because I’m a hopeless romantic but I still have hope that one day I will meet someone and everything will just fall into place. Because honestly isn’t that what we are all looking for?
Some people may think I have read way too many chick lit books (which I probably have but they are enjoyable reads), and watched way too many Disney films and romantic films (again probably true).
However being single for a certain amount of time I can honestly say I am bored of being single. Don’t get me wrong being single and all is fun. Having the freedom to do what to want whenever you want without having to worry whether your actions are upsetting your significant other half, directly or indirectly. But after a while going out most weekends to clubs gets boring. Super repetitive and I can’t be asked with it anymore.
It might be because we are well and truly into the winter months now but it would be nice to have more nights in with someone I am really attracted to and can genuinely get along with. I’m not saying all I want to do is just that because you know you need the balance. You don’t want to be that friend who was always available then as soon as they get a boyfriend they are nowhere to be found.
I guess as humans we are conditioned to want the things we don’t have. Like my friend put it the other day “So fresh and so much greener” in reference to what being a relationship feels like to us singletons. I suppose until l get on the other side of said grass, I’m just going to keep enjoying the single life!
