I really prefer to not be in a relationship. I hate saying this out loud because assholes are like, “Awww, but K! That’s not true! You just haven’t found the right person yet. You’ll find him/her one day and you won’t feel that way anymore!”
FUCK YOU. Don’t push your shitty lifestyle norms on me. I have dated more amazing men than you and although I respected them and they respected me and I loved some of them deeply and some of them loved me deeply, I am just not cut out for that shit.
God fucking dammit, I like being single and independently happy and dating or sleeping with whoever the hell I want. And I know you can have all of the above while in a relationship, but WHY THE HELL IS THAT THE STANDARD WE ALWAYS COME BACK TO?
What if I want to “die alone”? Why is that so sad to you?
To me, the only benefit of being in a serious relationship with someone is the constant companionship (meh) and cheaper rent/cost of living (awesome). And trust and all of that stuff, but honestly I have deeper, more meaningful relationships with more people when I am single than when I am in a serious relationship with one person.
I have such a loving, positive, fulfilling partner right now and I am so grateful, but I feel this urge to be single often. Not because of him or our connection, but because that is who I think I truly am.
And there is nothing wrong with that, assholes.
