From Our Readers: How to Be Single and Happy
Everyone thought being single and happy at the same time takes a lot of work. The truth is, it's really not—well, based on my experience. It really has to begin from somewhere, like accepting the mere fact that you're single. Being sad or crying about it won't help anything at all. Whining about it won't turn back time and won't give you a boyfriend in a blink of an eye, so don't drain yourself with such foolish acts.
I've been single for almost a year now, and I don't even see myself dating or being in a relationship any time soon. I'm still enjoying my single life, and I'm patiently waiting for the right person, the right time, and the right place for love.
So how do you stay single and happy? All you have to do is to look at everything in a positive way. Maybe your relationship ended because that is not yet the love story for you; you're not meant to be. That's just the way it is. God is probably writing the best and perfect love story for you. All you have to do is wait and trust Him.

When you're single, you can talk to a lot of guys and hang with them. No one's going to ask you who that person is or tell you that you're off limits and you can't talk to him. No one's going to tell you that because you're free, you're single.
When you're single you can save all your money for the things you want to get yourself. You can go shopping whenever you feel like it. You can buy tons of things, like your favorite clothes, food, books, and other things you like. You can go places and see a part of the world.
Sometimes, being alone makes us realize a lot of things and appreciate life even more.
If you're just like me and you have guy best friends, you don't have to worry about anything. Because again, no one's going to get jealous and question why you're talking to them. You can chill and talk to them like you normally would.
Make the most out of your single life. Get to know yourself a little bit more, because that will make you stronger and wiser the next time you find love. Don't rush things. You're alone right now because of a great reason. Remember that the things you get instantly somehow vanish in a snap of a finger. Aim for something worth keeping in a relationship because at the end of the day, it'll be worth the wait. That, I promise you.
