So I was reading my stats today for this site and noticed that someone found my first post about dating/relationships/being single… through searching “when to end a relationship”. I decided I would write a quick blurb on that query!
Here it goes!
You should end a relationship if:
1. You’re getting abused
2. You’re considering abusing/hurting your significant other
3. You’re cheating regularly
You should consider breaking up if:
1. You’re thinking about cheating and/or having constant thoughts about other men or women besides your partner.
2. You argue over the smallest issues ALL of the time!
3. You constantly get annoyed at anything AND everything your partner does, from the way they laugh to the way they chew their food!
Okay y’all. That’s it for now! I might add on to this later but only if it gets mad hits! If not, it was worth the try!
Get Smart. Just Ride Solo. Just Kidding. Or Am I?
So I told you guys I was coming back harder than ever right? Anyway, here’s one of the many topics I am going to attempt to write about upon viewers’ requests.
Today, I’m talking about Relationships. To be more specific, I am going to discuss the positive side to being single. I know you’re thinking “Unknwn… You’re too young to be talking about relationships! What do you know?”
You’re right, I am pretty young to be discussing the pros and cons to such a common occurrence in life. I don’t really know what I’m talking about! Well I actually do know what I’m talking about when it comes to today’s topic! Anything more than this and you may want to refer to a dating coach! Just kidding… I know a lot of stuff, I just don’t talk about it. But that’s why this blog exists, so I can share my knowledge with the world!
Anyways, I’m off topic! So, like I was saying I am going to discuss the good things about being single! Many people dislike being single and rather drag themselves through a hopeless relationship than just ride solo. I am one of those people. After a pretty horrible and dramatic two year-long relationship, I realized being single may be a better choice. Of course I had many thoughts running through my head. I didn’t want to be alone, I didn’t know how I would spend my day since it normally revolved around my significant other, so on and so forth. However, when everything was said and done I felt a sense of relief!
Think about it this way, you can go where you want when you want and do whatever you want with whomever you want and not have to answer to someone. That alone is exhilarating! Now, one may say, “That doesn’t have to happen only when you’re single. You can have that freedom in a relationship too.” Well here’s what I think: a healthy relationship is based on trust, but everyone knows even when you trust your partner, you don’t and won’t let them run around doing whatever with whomever, that’s just not how stuff works!
To me I associate the word “Single” with “Freedom”. That doesn’t mean I view a relationship as taking away my freedom but as I said above, with relationships comes restrictions. Being single is all about doing you and not focusing on someone else. I think it’s the best time to find yourself and what makes you happy. In the end, you have a better understanding of what you want in life and in a partner as well.
Now, does it always happen like this? No. Absolutely not. Some take the “Single Life” as a time to hook up with numerous people or drag others down for not being single just like them. Those are the reasons why being single looks so bad! Every person in this world has at least one single friend. You know, the one who claims he/she is so happy to be single but, every time you guys go out he/she is the first one drowning away their sorrows in ten shots of Vodka!? The one who makes you happy you’re in a relationship because you’re afraid you may turn out exactly like him/her!? Yea, do me a favor and get rid of that friend right now. He/she is a danger to any and all of your future relationships!
Please take my advice, if you’re single don’t feel bad, use this as anopportunity to get to know yourself a little better. Don’t waste your time abusing alcohol, drugs, sex, or any other addictive substance/activity. Yes, sex can become an addiction; just watch Jersey Shore!
Get Smart. Don’t Hang Around Depressed Single People. They’re Bad Influences. Enjoy Your Time Being Single. It’s Not So Bad.
