Being Single For The First Time In 5 Years


I honestly can’t believe that I have been single for 2 years now; wow! Anyway, this journey has been one of ups and downs. I always envied single people when I was in relationships; this should have been my first sign. I wanted to be alone, but I didn’t know how and I am a professional single woman convincing others to join me. Life is pretty funny sometimes.

2019 was my worst year career-wise, but at the same time, I grew as a person. I even from being a social butterfly to a somewhat loner, not in the sad sense, because I enjoyed my own company so much more. I lived with my sister, and when she went out with her friends, I was still thriving, never getting bored being by myself. I even dug deep into my spirituality, mixing some astrology aspects and Christianity to understand more about life.

Once the year was over, I now knew I was ready to date again, so I downloaded tinder as you do, haha. I met the weirdest characters on them, but I still wanted it to work for me. I deleted the app last month after 6 months of no success,


2020 comes, and I was still single, but I wanted to date, but when I got asked out on a date, I always said no for no reason. I always told my sister to go on dates, if not for anything, at least for the food, but I don’t know it was hard for me.

I started my evening classes around the same time, and I got a job, so it became even harder to meet new people or even hangout with old friends. Boom! Corona happened, and we had to quarantine ourselves, and here I am in 2021, still single, ready to mingle but can๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Being single is among the best experiences I have had, but relationships are not bad either. Maybe once this is all over, I’ll start saying yes more.
