Let’s face it, this generation’s dating scene is absolutely ridiculous. For some people, the thought of being alone is too much to bear. They will go to any length to avoid it, even if that means being with someone that isn’t right for them. To people who feel like this, being with the wrong person is better than being alone.
But I’m different to people that feel that way. I’m okay with being in my own company, and I don’t need anyone there to distract me at any cost.
Here are reasons why I’m not afraid of being alone:
I don’t mind doing things without company
I’m fine being by myself at any given time, no matter what I’m doing. I don’t mind eating alone at restaurants. I don’t mind getting coffee alone, or going to the movies, or going shopping. I’m happy being by myself, and that’s okay. This independence means I don’t need anyone to be there to make something worth doing. I fully enjoy things when I do them alone.
I know the right person will come along eventually
I’m in no rush to be with someone. I know that when the time is right, the person meant for me will come into my life. I’m not in any hurry – I know everything happens in its own time. Until then, I’m happy to wait patiently and get on with doing my own thing.
I don’t need anyone – I’m enough for myself
This is the big one – although being in a serious, committed relationship with the right person would be incredible, I don’t need anyone in my life. I am enough for myself. I am complete by myself. I am happy, I am fulfilled, and I have purpose all by myself. Another person wouldn’t bring those things into my life; they’d just be someone to share those things with.
Being alone gives me more time for myself
I really value my alone time. I like to spend time and energy on the things that interest me, or help me to progress and develop both as a person and in my career. Being alone allows me to focus on these things, without having to make sure I leave enough time to spend on another person.
I don’t want to be with the wrong person
Although a relationship with the right person is a very attractive prospect to me, a relationship with the wrong person is something I desperately want to avoid. Sometimes, it can be all too difficult to know the difference until you’re knee deep in the relationship. After all, some people don’t reveal their true colours to you until you’ve been together for a while. As nice as being with the right person sounds, jumping into a relationship with someone I’ve just met, even if they seem great, just isn’t worth the risk. I like to take my time, and I like to take things slowly. That way, I can for the most part avoid a lot of the risk of ending up with the wrong person.
