It’s been a little over ten years now since I was in a serious relationship. Though I’ve managed to have a few adventures with a lover here and there, much of what I do is done alone. That’s a state with a very bad reputation. Being in a romantic relationship is treated as a signpost that life has finally begun because there’s someone else there to witness it. Until then, you’re just kinda waiting, hoping you’ll get to do all that stuff someday.
And that’s a terrible way to spend your days. Couplehood is not guaranteed. Even if you find a relationship, it might end before you get to your bucket list. You might even discover that there were some things you missed out on doing while you were single because you were so busy looking for that relationship. Life is meant to be lived, not waited on. If you’re single right now, here’s some stuff you shouldn’t put on the back burner.
