There are several reasons why people want to be in a relationship. Being in a relationship means that you now have someone else in your life to help you through the tough times. However, there are so many people out there who would prefer to remain single. Why is that exactly? Here are 5 shocking reasons why you may remain single, until now.
- Freedom – Let's face it, being in a relationship means that you have to constantly check in with someone. You aren’t just responsible for your actions and how they affect you, you are also responsible for how your actions affect someone else. When you are single, you don’t have to worry about this. You can just do whatever you want and not have to worry about the consequences. Instead, you can go on with a peaceful life and not be tied down.
- You are able to be yourself – People may say that in a relationship you should be free to be yourself. That isn’t always the case though. As a single person, you will be able to do all those little quirky things you do, that others find weird. You won't have to change who you are to make people happy. You can be as lazy and messy as you want, or as clean and professional as you want.
- You have been through a bad breakup – One thing that majorly sucks about being in a relationship is that there is always the chance of getting hurt. If you have been through a bad break up, it might be harder for you to completely trust someone. Many people may think they are ready to go in that direction again, but some people do not realize how hard their previous breakup was.
- You are in love with someone already – Deep down, you might be turning down the chance of a happy relationship, in hopes that the person you already fell for will feel the same way. So subconsciously, you are not ready to open up that door and let someone else in. At least not yet. You may need to take time to get to that point. Eventually, if that person doesn’t already have feelings for you, then you will be able to move on and get over it.
- You are happy with the way things are – So many people out there think that a relationship will make them happy. However, sometimes people are just happy with the way things are in their lives. They are content and don’t want to change the way things are. So in the end, they decide that staying single is the best option for them.
People don’t always realize that these issues might be causing them to stay single. Although some reasons are obvious, others are a bit shocking. Do you have any other reasons why you might still be single?
