After my friend in a relationship was recently talking about how lucky our flatmate was because she just split up with her boyfriend and now she can go off and get with random people in clubs, it occurred to me that some people in relationships genuinely envy single people. Which is odd, but ok. I write this whilst eating a whole tube of Pringles without caring one jot whether it will put anyone off me or not (They're BBQ flavour, so they're fantastic). This isn't a "I'm pretending to be happy being single because I don't think anyone will love me" thread. Or a "All people in relationships are in the wrong" thread, it's just one for people who are happy just as they are.
People in relationships are also welcome to post and talk about how much they miss having an entire double bed to themselves or something. Although I like cute relationship stories so feel free to throw them in too. So yeah, if you're happy being single, come and have a dance around just because we can

I spent my 1st and 2nd years at Uni in a relationship and when we finally broke up, I went mental in my third year. Loved being single, having no ties, 'enjoying' myself more than was probably healthy.
Looking back, that was the best year of my life and I really enjoyed being me. Although I now wouldn't change it for the word I think I probably did all the major life-events too young. I had my first child (who sadly passed away) at 21, got married and had my second child at 22 and bought my house at 23.
There are times when I miss the old life but I suspect I am looking back with rose tinted glasses. Afterall the grass is always greener.
