I admit, being in a relationship has its perks. But then again, there's some sort of freedom you're never going to get when you're tied up with someone else. I don't think a lot of people realize that.
Your money is your own.
Forgetting someone's birthday is not an unforgivable sin.
You don't have to ask for permission to have fun with your friends.
I'm not promoting promiscuity, but you have that option.
You're not forced to endure hours and hours of window shopping.
Yeah, there's no kilig and you don't get to hold hands with someone and yeah it's nice when you wake up and you're still beside the person you slept with, but that shouldn't stop you from being happy.
There's a reason why we make friends with other people. So that we'll never be alone. And if you chose the right people to be friends with, then loneliness is not going to be a problem.
I read this whole entry back, and I know I kind of sound like a selfish brat. It's just that I'm enjoying being a free man. And it's not going to take away the things that will make me a great partner or boyfriend. My being happy as a single guy does not mean that being the other half of a couple will make me miserable. Like I said, sometimes we need to feel the jitters.
I'm just making the most of what life hands out. I decided that I don't want to spend the last years of being in my twenties feeling miserable. Sulking is for superheroes. And I'm not a fictional character.
