Brunch Opinion: Single is a good place to be

I’ve never been a big fan of being single. It’s just very nice to have someone text you every morning or every night (depending on their sleep pattern). In fact, some time last year, I even wrote an article listing all the reasons why it just sucks to be single (brownie points if you remember it)!

But, in the last few months of being completely unattached, I realised how wonderful it is to be on your own – for now. The trick is to not be in between anything. No casual relationships, no crawling back to exes, no daily rituals talking about “us”.

You need a few good books, a hard drive full of complete seasons of every kind of TV show and fun plans every weekend. It will take a few weeks but it will happen – you’ll fall in love with yourself. And you’ll get so much work done too! This Valentine’s Day, I’m redoing my room. What are your plans?
