Being Single Doesn't Have to Be Sad and Lonely

Who says it has to be?

We don't understand why, until now, people still see being single as a sad and lonely time. Sure, we do most things alone whenever we're not in a relationship, but that doesn't mean we feel lonely.

Singlehood is actually the best time to get to know yourself and love yourself better. We do a lot of things we haven't done before, try out new activities, and get into something we're passionate about. It's a time of learning and fulfilling our dreams and goals. To give you a better look at being single and having fun while you're at it, just read what our Candy Girls have to say about it in their stories submitted to us via Candy Feels.

Alyanna Alvarez: "I Am Thankful to Choose the Single Life"

"It's really been fun, those years of being single. People actually said that my life looked boring and lonely, but it was way too far from that. I have lived the best years of my life being single. I don't need a man to light up my world because I have my own light from within. I don't need a man to keep the fire burning inside me. My entire being is enough to keep me going through life no matter how hard it gets.

"Those years helped me establish this kind of person I never thought I could be—a strong and independent woman who needs no man in her life. I am thankful to choose the single life. I never realized until then how important it is to spend time with yourself. Solitude will allow you to free your mind and allow it to breathe fresh air. It will also give you the chance to discover yourself. It gets tough at times but you'll overcome it when you finally realize the joys of exploring your life alone.”

Birdsxdandelions: Being Single Is Not a Disability

"Being single and blessed is a choice. There are times when I don't feel that it is, but I know that it is in fact, a choice. I don't know the minor supporting details of other people regarding this but we all have reasons for our choices. Some will not understand and others luckily will."

Maarrxxxx: How to Be Single and Happy

"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."

"Maybe your relationship ended because that is not yet the love story for you; you're not meant to be."

"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."

Tell us your stories, too, Candy Girls. We'd want to hear what you have to say about life, college, politics, and feminism! You can send us you submissions via Candy Feels.
