1. You feel the need to recharge your batteries
While some people get a rash when they even think of spending the weekend all by their lonesome, you look forward to it.
Netflix and chill accompanied with some snacks, a warm bubble bath and a glass of wine sounds just perfect. Who wouldn’t want that?
Sometimes, life situations and the people around us exhaust all of our emotional strength and we just need some time to unwind, talk to no one and enjoy our peace and quiet.
2. Staying in sounds a lot better than going out
It’s not that you don’t like going out and hanging out with your loved ones but from time to time that sounds like such a drag and you would prefer not to.
You don’t want to force yourself to do something you don’t feel up to. It’s better for you and everyone around you if you stay in. A lazy night is just what the doctor has prescribed.
3. Being in a crowd is not so appealing
Clubbing on a Saturday night isn’t your cup of tea. Crowds, being shoved around, getting your clothes wet because someone spilled something over them, listening to the flirting attempts of drunk people—none of this sounds too appealing.
You would much rather spend some time alone relaxing, reading, watching movies, stargazing or something of the sort and it will be all the partying you need.
4. You can’t stand clingy people
You don’t like texting 24/7, you don’t need to spend every waking moment with somebody you are into. You need someone who will be there for you but you don’t need them to be your shadow.
When it comes to relationships, you believe that making space for one another is extremely important. By having your own interests and alone time, you value the moments you spend together so much more.
Your desire to unwind and recharge, even if it’s for a couple of hours, a day or a weekend, has to be something that your partner can understand.
If they love spending time with you and spending time alone, you’ve hit the jackpot and probably found a person to spend your forever with.
6. You trust your gut
And it never fails you. Every time you decided to ignore that little voice inside of you, you ended up paying a high price for it. That’s why now you firmly believe in everything your gut is telling you.
Spending time alone has enabled you to get to know yourself and the people around you better.
When you are constantly by somebody’s side, you can’t see them clearly. That’s why distance provides you with some valuable insights.
7. Being single is not the end of the world for you
When you are single, you are killing it. It gives you the opportunity to reinvent yourself. You are allowed to dedicate all of your time to yourself and make the best of it.
You know what you deserve and you do not settle for less. Why would you, when you value your alone time and the peace you created for yourself?
You want someone who will add to your bliss, not someone who will make your whole life more difficult.
8. You are not scared of being alone you are scared of being with somebody and feeling lonely
You’ve probably had one relationship or a few relationships that made you feel lonelier than when you are alone.
You see, when you are with somebody, you expect that someone will be there for you to lean on. The moment when you discover you are, once again, your own rock is painful.
That’s why you are ready to wait for somebody who respects your alone time but makes sure you know that you are never lonely and that they are just a phone call away.
9. Doing stuff alone is a prize, not a punishment
Going on road trips, traveling, eating in a restaurant, enjoying a day at the beach or a ski trip are just a part of all the things some people refuse to do alone.
But you don’t mind it. You prefer it that way. At times it’s better to drift away into your world of imagination, read some good articles and enjoy the quality time you have with yourself.
10. You truly capture the meaning of life
You enjoy the little things. You spend a day in nature when it’s sunny outside. You love the rain too. Getting a bit wet won’t spoil your day.
But getting curled up in your bed and listening to the drops of rain on your window is something that money can’t buy.
You find magic in all the ordinary, everyday stuff other people tend to miss so easily.
