Society is always putting pressure on girls to be in relationships. If you are 24 and single you feel like there is something wrong with you. People and family may ask you "why are you single?" It could be annoying but at the same time there is nothing wrong with being single.

1) You have your freedom. You could stay out all hours of the night and not have to explain to anyone where you've been.

2) You don't have to worry about someone cheating or abusing you. Not all relationships are great. Some people get into the wrong relationships for the wrong reasons.

3) You could flirt and date whoever you want. Flirting can be a lot of fun. You could flirt without feeling guilty.

4) You don't have to miss out on other guys. If you are with someone and another guy asks you out you have to say "I have a boyfriend." If your single you don't have to worry about that.

If your single today, don't let it get to you. The right guy is out there. Some people ask you why your single because they have nothing better to do. Maybe being in a relationship came easy to them. Always know that it is better to be single than to be with the wrong person. Never settle, just go out there and have fun. There is a right person out there for anybody. Don't listen to people who make you feel insecure. Being in a relationship can be great but it won't cure your insecurities. If you are with someone to feel good about yourself than you don't love that other person. As the saying goes "In order to find love first you have to love you." So have confidence, be around people who make you feel good, have fun and at the right time you will find that special someone.

      There is a typo in the first paragraph. I meant to say: "Also, having the concern or worry that the other person may/may not reciprocate the responsibility of love in the relationship does not exist. Being single also gives you the freedom to better yourself as a person which could lead to being a better candidate for relationships."

      --sorry for the confusion that I may have caused.

      Wow! This is a great article. I totally agree that it is nothing wrong with being single. As a single person, you have emotional freedom...or better yet, you don't have to be concerned about how the other person may feel about you. Also, having the concern or worry that the other person may/may not reciprocate the responsibilty of love in the relationship does not exist.could lead to you being a better candidate for relationships. People would ask me the samething as you mentioned in the article..."Why are you single?" I never understood why being "single" was such a bother.

      I also agree that in our society women are under more pressure than men to be in a steady relationship or married. I guess a single 20 something woman is too much of a "threat" to our society. "OMG, the single 20 something woman is going to take over!!" lol j/k.

      On a personal and serious note, no matter how much society may view single women like myself as "strange", I will continue to discover who I am as a woman and a person. I will continue to build my relationship with God and also try to be a productive person in society. Mr. Right or Mr. Right enough will come.
