Single and proud of it!

"You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never lose." - Jo Courdert

I have to admit that I am the type of person that looks upon those sweet couples with disdain and a hint of jealousy. I always end up asking myself why I dont have that? Asking myself if there is something wrong with me and trying to figure out what it is so I can quickly fix it and move on with life having a boyfriend. The truth is that I personally could have a boyfriend, Ijust havnt had the opportunity to be with someone that I truly want to be with so I end up running away from the other boys because i know that somewhere out there someone better is waiting and searching for me too. So, I have decided to comprise a list of reasons why the single life isnt too bad, in fact it is better than the alternative.
