You are still single, because you are smart enough to say goodbye to toxic boys. You don’t hang onto unhealthy relationships. You realize that you’re better off on your own than dealing with someone who is only going to bring you down.

You are still single, because you are careful with your heart. You don’t hand it over to anyone who gives you a little bit of attention. You are selective about who gets to stay in your life and who gets to leave.

You are still single, because you know what you deserve. You understand that you are a catch and that you should be treated as such.

You are still single, because you have seen the people you love slip into toxic relationships. You have seen how easy it is for attraction to eclipse common sense and for a good person to end up in a bad situation. So you’re extra cautious. You tread lightly.

You are still single, because you have high standards that you expect your partner to reach. You refuse to settle when it comes to your career, your friendships, and especially your relationships.

You are still single, because you aren’t embarrassed about living and eating alone. You don’t mind being the third wheel and showing up to weddings without a date. You’re unashamed of your status, you wear your single title proudly.

You are still single, because love isn’t your main focus in life. You have better things to do with your time than to sit around, swiping through dating apps and forcing conversations with people who will leave as soon as they get what they want from you.

You are still single, because you’re actually happy being unattached. You enjoy your independence. You aren’t the type of girl to mope about how you wish you went on more dates, about how you wish someone would come and rescue you. You’ve figured out how to rescue yourself.

You are still single, because you are comfortable being alone. You don’t have a problem sitting in silence, enjoying your own company. You would rather spend the night inside on the couch than out at dinner with someone who doesn’t care about what you have to say.

You are still single, because you understand that romantic love doesn’t have any more value than the love you receive from your friends, your family, and your very own heart. You already have so many people who care for you, who want the best for you, so you don’t feel like you’re being neglected in any way.

You are still single, because the peer pressure hasn’t gotten to you. You aren’t going to jump into a random relationship just so you can brag about it to your friends and post pictures on Instagram. You don’t feel the need to impress others with some cutesy relationship.

You are still single, because you haven’t found the right person for you yet — and you don’t want to waste your time with the wrong one.

You are still single, because you are smart enough to wait for your forever person to come along. TC mark
