Why do some people always make it seem being single in your 20s is the worst thing you could possibly do? When I was younger, I said to myself at 25 I would be married and have children. I am now 26 and I have no husband or children, and you know what, I am totally fine with that. I'm not preaching that being single in your 20s is the best thing, but for me, it is. I can be completely selfish with every aspect of my life. My decisions won't affect anyone else, and that's exactly what I need right now.

Once you've passed a certain age and are still relationship-less, (even though it's by choice) you get thrown into two groups;

1. You're being to picky. I didn't realise having a type was a bad thing? And what's with all the rush? The world isn't suddenly going to run out of men. I'm not at a restaurant where they've run out of my 1st choice meal and I have to quickly find something else on the menu I kinda like; this is somebody I'm planning on spending the rest of my life with. I will take a long as I like.

2. You must be doing something wrong. The only thing I'm doing is not looking for a boyfriend. I'm not in a hurry to settle down. Atabsolutelyfinding out who I am. I can barely commit to a series on Netflix, let alone be committed to another human being.
