The single life is what you make of it

Being single isn’t really so bad. I always thought I needed a partner, but I am coming to terms with being single after a few crappy breakups. I have a decent job. I have a very supportive family. I can do what I want. I am healthy. I am learning to be thankful for the small things. If I am destined to be alone, I guess so be it. I couldn’t say that not so very long ago. I was so badly wanting a partner. I made it my mission to find someone. I gave myself a timeline. Big mistake. I am not looking for love anymore, even though I would welcome it if it happens. I am just not so sure I believe I will find the one anymore, so I am working on doing an alright job of going it alone. Wish me luck. I might need it.

  1. I am excited to not have to take care of an adult and only my children. Being single is great especially when you’ve only ever been with users and liars and grown children.

    For the first time I’ve ever seen a shoutout post, with sincere comments ever! Although, keep working on yourself to fix why you so happened to be single in the first place…

  3. It’s peaceful for sure, that’s a healthy way of looking at it,if it happens it happens if it doesn’t it doesn’t 🙂 can relate, take care of yourself what will be will be

  4. This post is arguably the best shoutout sudbury post of all time. It reflects my sentiments exactly give or take a few scenarios. Lol at society pressuring people to live a life you aren’t happy in

  6. Good for you! There’s nothing wrong with living life alone as long as you have the love of family and friends to support you and be there for you but if it so happens that special someone comes along then take it step by step and enjoy every moment as we only live once ❤️

    It’s totally amazing once you learn to be independent…and if someone adds to your life….go for it…just never fall in love with the idea of being in love!
    I had a friends group with a lot of men and ladies in your position!

    Good for you! Being single is awesome! Take advantage while you can. 🙂

  11. I know exactly how you feel! I have spent the years getting myself into rotten situations due to unrequited love and wanting a partner, and well, finally, it occurred to me that maybe I should try to enjoy being single and focusing on myself. I ended up discovering that I don’t want a partner. I might sit around sometimes and feel as though I want someone to love me, but the thing is, I don’t want to actually have a relationship — it took many years of poor relationships and then a few years of poor non-relationships to realize that the only thing I wanted was to feel wanted. And you know what? Friends can love one another, friends can make you feel wanted. So now, I sit at home by myself and enjoy the things I do because I feel wanted — I don’t need to force myself to have someone physically sitting beside me or taking me out somewhere in order to feel that.

    In the past few years, I’ve learned to love myself. And now that I do, I don’t want a partner, I just want to enjoy loving myself while having friends who have provided me with more love than any partner ever has.

    When you stop focusing on finding someone and focus on your life… You’ll probably find “the” one…. I’ve seen it more than once. I’ve been with the guy that I never knew I always wanted for 22 happy years.

  13. Jen Bertrand Jen Bertrand says:

    I know exactly what you mean. And I am finally accepting it to be forever alone

    Well said, I am doing the same..

  17. Been single over 20 years . Not so bad. I know what I attract and I don’t want it lol maybe 1 day you will meet your prince charming but theres alot of frogs along the way. Lmao

  18. Live life how it makes you happy. In the end, if you can love yourself, and find happiness in the small things, you are doing good for yourself. We all have different views of what happiness is. Do what works for you, and everything else will fall into place when it is meant to. At least, that is my belief. My life is great, and if someone joins it at some point, they will simply add to it. Regardless, I’m happy, and that’s what counts. 🙂

  19. You’ll never “find” that person, it just comes together through fate, where I worked the line stop button broke, they sent this cute electrician,talked for a couple minutes,,thought about her all night,,next day I took my hard hat n smashed the button,,in hopes they would send her again,, that was 12 years ago and not only is she my wife,she’s my best friend

  20. Ya I’m in the same situation and just like yourself I’m learning from my mistakes and growing as a person every experience happens for a reason best of luck to you

  21. Being single means loving yourself until the right one comes along. I actually enjoy it. Relationships are a pain in the butt!

  22. I agree the loneliness sucks but the freedom rocks! Lol

  23. I love being single but I get lonely sometimes but I get over it but that life
