DISCLAIMER: 'I' here represents the sentiments of many girls out there.
Did you get the context?
The minute I sit back and realize that in this modern world of dating I fall into the category of people who aren't dating anyone or are single, I instantaneously recall the questions that people throw at me.
And to all those people who have raised questions, all I have to say is that I'm single and it's working really well...
Believe me, I think I have found the one and it is none other than MYSELF! There's no knight in the shining armour who will be able to put up with a person like me (pun intended).
On that note, here are a few reasons why I would like to stay single (at least for quite some time or until my favorite character from a British classic comes to life).
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up for me. I can't date a dog... And men? Well, they aren't furry and cuddly. Are they?
There are no such obligations for grooming oneself. Getting ready for dates, taking showers in winters when I really don't want to get out of the rajai... Well, you get the picture.
That has to be the best reason.
Also, there's no 'WE' in the food. So, I can have that pizza, jalebi and yummy cake all by myself.
Giving little details on where I am going, what I am doing is just not me, so that drama has no room when there's singlehood.
And there definitely will not be endless romantic talks or cheesy chats which will complicate life even more.
Because that's enough and there's no need to have one more homo sapien who gets a chance to ruin my life and then comment on my clumsiness.
It is better, my friend, to take a safe road which leads to a happy and a peaceful life because people mostly expect a lot and then end up getting nothing.
In this world, everyone seems so busy with their daily chores that no one bothers about anyone. So, why commit yourself in a relationship where your partners are so self-indulgent?
You can flirt and hang out with as many people as you want and that too without feeling a sense of guilt or FOMO (fear of missing out).
And you definitely know what I mean by this!
Because there's no baggage and you can have everything to yourself, for yourself and by yourself.
Because, yes! The war of who's better a lover or a friend is never going to end but what I know for sure is that the relationships that I cherish today would help me in the long run.
Yes, I am already dating myself, so why go and hunt for a man or give importance to one?
That's all, people.
These were my reasons, if you have more to add to the list, please comment on the section provided.
