”Happily Single”

 “I’m not sad about any of my life. It’s so unconventional. It doesn’t look anything like I thought it would.” ~Edie Falco. 


I’ve realized that it’s not my responsibility to reassure people that I’m normal even though I’m single. I am normal. I’m just not married.

Some people lead their best, most authentic, most fulfilling, and meaningful lives by living single. I call these people “single at heart.” They embrace singlehood and live their single lives fully, joyfully, and unapologetically. There may also be people who do not quite make it into the “single at heart” category but who, all things considered, would still live a better life by living single than getting married.

Deciding whether to stay single is no small thing: Getting married is no royal road to health and happiness, despite all the claims you may have heard to the contrary. And there are important ways in which single people fare better than married people, personally and interpersonally. But legal marriage does grant automatic access to an array of more than 1,000 federal benefits and protections. It also offers instant status, credibility, privilege, and respect. Even though more people than ever are living single. People spend more years of their adult lives not married than married, we are still a nation of matrimaniacs.



But marriage is also risky. A substantial number of people who get married end up getting divorced, often at a great emotional and financial cost. People who divorce also end up, on the average, less happy than they were when they were single. And staying married is no guarantee of emotional or financial well-being either.

So how can you know if you are one of those individuals who would live a better life as a single person than a married person?

  1. Being single since kindergarten gives me another perspective on being single. I’ve been asked to Valentine’s Ball in the 11th Grade by a very beautiful lady who I admire & honour for asking me, a guy with zero experience in relationships & yet the night was a success, it could’ve been better, but I think we both enjoyed it.

    Fast-forward four years later & I’m still single, I live life to the fullest & I do desire a relationship, & it’s something I know I do not need & yet I know my soul longs for a soul-mate. I think it depends on one’s perspective.

    If you think you don’t need it, then it’s a good thing to do some soul searching.
