The Best Ways To Stay Single #9

Staying single

Every day many are having issues with their relationships. One however can choose happiness and stay single; avoid unnecessary commitments.

Being single is a choice although not many people would choose to be single. At times dating becomes a burden and so do relationships. 

Being alone is okay. Here are methods of staying single and this is how you can do it too: 

1. Acceptance:

This means accepting yourself and your life choices; don’t beat yourself about the head for not having someone. Besides, you made that decision yourself.

Don’t get someone who isn’t available or worth trying for. Make sure to get someone who values you and appreciates your efforts.

Don’t just get someone who always complains about what you lack. A relationship shouldn’t be one-sided; both partners should be on the same page.

2. Curate a social life: 

Make plans with friends, join clubs, and volunteer for something. Don’t isolate yourself from the world because being alone means you are a part of it. 

When you aren’t dating means you have plenty of time. Go out and have fun, learn a new game/skill and connect. Get to share with strangers.

Visit places you’ve never been before, meet and interact with new people. Don’t hide away; by all means, be social and active.

3. Keep busy: 

It’s very important. You can do this by staying active or engaging in work that requires total concentration. Find something that kills boredness.

When you get bored it leads to loneliness. Which you will get back to missing your ex… Keep yourself occupied by reading, visiting friends, and more.

Don’t be idle… “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop”.

4. Be your own best friend:

Your partner may have been there as your best friend but now you need to be better at it than any other person could ever be.

Besides, you know yourself better. Go treat yourself more than anyone else could and visit places you’ve wanted to go.

5. Travel often: 

This is another way to get out into the world regularly so don’t stay home all the time. Do save up some money and go on a trip, anywhere will do!

A trip can be just to a waterfall, dam, or a new scene that you haven’t visited. Going out there changes your mind and helps you think clearly.

Go somewhere new or try something different, this is another great way of getting out there. You also get to meet new people, know new things and more.

It’s a learning experience and prepares the mind for more challenges.

6. Accept that not everyone will like you: 

That’s just the way life is sometimes. If you can’t accept this, don’t venture out into the dating world. Acceptance is the first step. 

If you already have, I’m sure you’ll know what I mean when I say that saying no to everything can be a relief.

7. Don’t compare yourself to others: 

We are all different and we all have our own likes and dislikes so there is no sense in comparing yourself to someone else.

When you compare yourself you will not be happy. Neither will your partner besides, they may not even be happy with how they are either. 

Things don’t always look as they seem “Not all that glitters is gold!”.

8. Stop caring what other people think: 

Easier said than done. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks of you because they are not living your life and it’s impossible to know what is best for you.

No one knows you better than you know yourself. Stop letting people influence your life and how you choose to live it. Be your own boss!

9. Be selfish: 

Means doing things that make yourself happy even if it means neglecting others, step away from other people if need be.

Have time for yourself… 

These methods can help anyone who wants to stay single but there may be some resistance at first, that’s only natural because humans have an innate need for companionship but we also need space too.

Being alone gives one time to think, something one would lack when committed. Being single is not easy and it will never be the first choice but being alone is much better than being in a bad relationship or with someone who takes you for granted.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?  Has Your Partner Lost Interest Or Are You Overthinking?

Choose to be single if you are not being treated well. Happiness is more important than being stressed over and over again.

Stop waiting for him/her to call you, for that ideal relationship or in hopes of things improving. Choose your happiness and make it happen yourself. Happy living!

Just remember: Love is not a fairy tale. It does not start with ‘Once upon a time’ (OK, sometimes Cinderella does) but the stories all end with ‘And they lived happily ever after’, so we have to realize that’s just an ending. 

We have to prepare ourselves emotionally and mentally for this day… it will come one day… Make sure you are happy either way.

There are lots of ways to stay single and this article explores just a few of them, if you have any thoughts on the subject please let me know.
