"You are single because you are single. It’s really as simple as that. You haven’t made the connection with another heart yet. You can get dolled up, dress cute, cut your hair, dye your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, put on lipstick and you may still. be. single. You can go out to a bar hoping to meet the love of your life and not find a damn one in the place attractive. And it’s going to remain that way until it’s time for you to find one. Stop hoping for it. Start living the life that you do have instead of wishing for things that you don’t have. There will come a time you’ll meet a boy and you’ll have to give up some of this single freedom you currently have. Start being more thankful. Start doing that now."
You should check out the entire article by Amanda Crute that I have posted in the link above. It is a pretty enlightening, charming, and funny post. But more than anything, I loved how relatable it was - the moral being "you're single because you're single." That's just how it is right now - no karmic revenge for treating past relationships poorly, no cosmic negative energy for not accepting that blind date your friend wanted to set you up on. You are single because you are single. Because it's not yet your time, because perhaps you need more "me time" before you get to the "we time."
You're single because you're single.... and I like the notion that you should be thankful of this time and enjoy it. Yet I also like the optimism that being single is not a "forever" state, but rather a time to learn about yourself and grow ... a time to prepare yourself ... for the day that things do align and it's your time to fall in love....
It's your time to be a couple because it's your time to be a couple.
