Being single can be really fun. I mean, take it from me, I’ve been living the single life for over a year. I’m really good at it, too. (Although I don’t know how much longer it will last because I’ve got a major crush and things are great and that’s all I can say about that right now.)
Anyway, there are some things you definitely should do when you’re single, but there are plenty of things you shouldn’t do just because you’re a walking version of “Single Ladies”.
Check out these things you don’t have to do when you’re single:
Alert The World That You're Single
I stumbled across these bracelets called "My Single Bands" that are to be worn to alert others that you're single. Yeah...this is real. Don't wear these.
Go On Dates
If you want to go on dates, you should totally go on dates! I go on dates all the time. But you shouldn't feel pressured to do so just because you're single.
Hook Up With Everyone
You also don't have to go on a hookup rampage because you're living the single life. But if you want to, more power to you! Just be safe!
Ignore Your Friends In Relationships
Don't be annoyed with your friends who are in relationships when you're single. Don't ignore them and cut them out of your life just because they're coupled up. Maybe one of their BFs has someone for you to meet!
Don't go into a single-spiral of depression and stop doing things that you love.
Just because you're single doesn't mean that anything is wrong with you or that you need to change who you are. Take this time to find yourself, not change yourself.
Convince Yourself You're Forever Alone
Don't think that just because you're single now that you're going to be single forever! That's not the case at all.
