You don’t need to have a boyfriend if you want to be happy and satisfied in life, and there are women who know that. Some of us are happier on our own. Sometimes, relationships are all about drama and it all seems too complicated to handle it.

For some women, being single is a blessing. They embrace their solitude and they love their freedom. There is absolutely nothing wrong about it.

So, I can list you 5 really good reasons why some women prefer ridin’ solo:

1. They don’t want to deal with the stress and anxiety of a relationship.

Let’s be honest—dating can be such a pain in the ass, and relationships are so freaking stressful. Some women simply decide they don’t want to deal with all that stress and anxiety in their lives. It’s completely normal that we don’t want to be hurt.

Some of us are not ready to risk entering a bad relationship because we appreciate our well-being too much. Fights, codependency, dealing with emotional baggage… They all come with prices that some of us don’t want to pay.

2. They are free spirits who don’t like routine.

Sooner or later, every relationship turns into some kind of routine. Some people like it—they find their comfort in it, but some free-spirited women can’t stand this idea. They are always looking for some new adventures.

Our society just needs to accept the fact that we’re not the same. Not all women hope and dream to settle in small suburban houses with their husbands and kids. Some of us have other plans and that’s okay.

3. They don’t like commitment.

Some single woman like dating, but that doesn’t mean that they plan to get involved in a seriously-committed relationship that leads to marriage or something like that. We all have our choices in life, and not all of us can imagine being tied to one person only.

Sometimes, we need more space, and commitment is not what we strive for.

4. They enjoy other things in life.

Single gals who enjoy their single lives understand that they don’t need a man to have a fulfilled life. They have other things in life to keep themselves happy as well as busy. When I say busy, I mean enjoying traveling, flirting, going out with friends, chasing a fantastic career.

All of us have different priorities. Conventional married life becomes a priority for some women after going through a long-term relationship, but other ladies don’t even think about it. They’re happy just like this.

5. They’re in a happy relationship with themselves.

The most important relationship you can ever have is the relationship with yourself. If you want to be truly happy, you need to love yourself as much as you can.

It’s okay to be self-sufficient. There’s less drama, less stress. I understand that some people feel they can’t be complete unless they have their significant others, but I’m still positive that maintaining a good relationship with yourself first is the most important.

I don’t need a guy in order to be his princess. I’m my own queen.

So, why are we single? BECAUSE WE CAN!
