    Being Single Teaches You


    We all love to fall in love, don’t we? But then, how do we define when it’s love and when it’s not? This often leads us to being single for quite some time. Every time a relationship doesn’t work out, the sex feels the usual and there is no promise of the future, we choose to end things. And then begins what most people call “the cursed phase”, being single. It’s boring, you feel left out and jealous too, but being single isn’t as bad. There are many who actually enjoy being single and don’t see themselves as being undesirable or “out of practice” as many put it. Being single actually teaches you a couple of things about yourself and relationships that you will learn from nowhere else.
