I wanted to share some being single quotes with you today as I feel being single has a label attached to it that fosters a 'pity' response, and it definitely shouldn't.
Up until the age of 32 I absolutely loved being single, I didn't care what anybody thought, I laughed when people thought they had to match me up with someone, I laughed when people thought I was gay, and I laughed when people tilted their head to the side in a 'Oh that's a shame' kind of way.
For me being single was a choice. Don't get me wrong I was always looking for 'the one' but she hadn't arrived for whatever reason, and I like to think I wasn't quite ready to settle down at 31 or 32 years of age.
The thing is I didn't panic about getting to a certain age and still being single, I sure as hell wasn't going to settle for second best. So I happily strolled through life, on the lookout but not desperate to find mrs right. She did come along when I was 32 and it was lust at first sight, and then when I got to know her personality it quickly turned to love. We've now been together for 18 years and have two amazing sons.
As I said I loved being single and I could quite happily have lived my life as a single person, but not a lot of people could understand why I was happy being single. It's crazy to think we actually need somebody in our life to make our lives complete.
So here are some quotes about being single that you might enjoy.
