Somebody to love

When you are single, you feel a certain freedom: a freedom to go anywhere and do anything. The problem with that freedom is you may have to do these things alone.

A lot of single people do the same thing — talk up single life and talk about how fun it is to be young, wild and free. While there are some people who truly feel like being single is the best, I am not one of them.

My sophomore year of college, my now ex-girlfriend broke up with me. I wasn’t happy at first, but I told myself that the single life would give me more freedom and give me more time to do whatever I wanted.

After being single for a couple of months, I realized that being single isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

When I was single, I thought I would start to do more things: go to more parties, try to put myself out there more and get with more women, but I realized that I like being in a relationship more because I like to connect with another person. I am the type of person who wants to make a connection with someone and not just be with someone because they are attractive or are willing to be with me for one night.

Being in a relationship means you will always have someone by your side. They will encourage you and boost your confidence.

Yes, while friends can do that for you, most people don’t tell their friends what is truly wrong because they fear being made fun of or are afraid of being vulnerable.

A relationship gives you the chance to be yourself and the vulnerable person you are on the inside.

I have been in a relationship for two months now, and it has made me realize that I don’t need to be anyone other than myself to try to make people like me.

At times, while I was single, I would put on a performance while I was flirting with girls to try to get them to notice me.

The one problem with putting on an act is girls don’t want you to pretend to be someone else.

If you are talking to a girl trying to be Mr. Cool Guy instead of who you are, it is going to turn a girl off or you are going to end up with a girl who isn’t right for you.

Being yourself is one of the most important things you can do being in a relationship gives you that chance. The person you are with should be with you for you.

If you are in a strong relationship, it’s because that person loves you for you.

Being in a relationship gives you the chance to go anywhere and do anything, but you have someone to experience it with.

If you really want to be alone and do those things, then the single life is for you. But if you want someone to go with you on your adventures, being in a relationship will be the perfect solution to make you happy and to have fun at the same time.
