Being single can be an empowering experience and a moment of self discovery but, it can suck too.
As much as there are so many pros to it, it does come with its own cons.
Let’s explore them below
When you’re single, you’re most likely to feel lonely. This is be because you don’t have a go to person who you can share your intimate thoughts with. However, this is not true for everyone. There are a lot of singles who are quite adept at handling the loneliness well.
Feeling Of Isolation
You might feel isolated during social events that involves couples or people being with the romantic partners.
A lot of time there are specific events that are targeted at couples and as a single, you might feel very left out.
Oh! There’s definitely a lot to say about this one especially in todays modern era of intense social media.
Everywhere you look, there is a beautiful love story on the internet. Everyone on social media seems to have a beautiful love life and it is so easy to get pressured when you consistently feed your mind with things like that.
You might find yourself wanting to get into a relationship not because you really want to but because you want to get over the pressure you deal with every day.
Can be expensive
Here me out! There are moments when you’re going through really tough time and you just need someone to lean on. When you’re in a relationship, it’s easy to ask your partner for help during financial difficulties. They can easily assist you until you’re standing in your feet again.
Unfortunately, as a single pringle, you have to learn the art of independence even on occasions when you’re not financially buoyant.
A single person is most likely to go through emotional moments because they’re doing it alone.
When something really terrible happens to you, having that one person who loves you deeply and is always willing to listen to you makes you feel stronger and more stable when going through emotions moments.
Low Self Confidence
When you’re single, it’s so easy to wonder why no one wants to be in a relationship with you. You might start to feel that there is something missing in you which is why you haven’t found the one.
