To be single in the 21st century means being a liar.
We’re all just lying to each other. We lie about being the “cool girl” who can hang with the guys. We lie with our looks. We lie about not being like “other girls.” We just lie to each other all time.
But the number one single person lie of the 21st century is:
“I don’t want a relationship.”
I just want to be single we say.
I don’t want anything serious.
I just want no strings attached.
Please… since when has ‘No strings attached’ ever been easy.
I mean if you did want to be single then WHY ARE YOU DATING PEOPLE!
Loneliness is the human condition, so why do we deny it. We as mammals need other people, it’s in our nature. Even wolves mate for life.
And I know there are people out there who think that they are just too much of a mess or too shattered to be with someone. But how are you ever supposed to know if someone can help you put your pieces back together if you don’t try.
So date if you want to, be in a relationship if you want to. Maybe it won’t last forever but at least you’ll know you tried.
Because hope is also a human condition. You may get hurt from time to time but nothing can kill hope.
But please, stop lying.
