Feeling blue because you don’t have a Valentine? Maybe these funny & inspirational quotes about being single will cheer you up! Check them out, and remember, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine’s Day with yourself!
Love has never really worked out for me. I’m not feeling sorry for myself or anything, it’s just a simple fact. I’ve spent my whole life chasing after the idea of an epic love and it’s led me down some strange and bumpy roads.
I don’t have many regrets. Every relationship prior to the birth of my son put the pieces in place for his existence. Every relationship after taught me a valuable lesson. Even if Jake wasn’t a factor, I’ll never regret marrying his father. He’s the great love of my life and my soul mate in every way…except the one that makes it possible for us to work as a couple.
Still, romantic love and me? Not a good mix. So, I’ve given up on it. Again, not feeling sorry for myself. This isn’t an “oh, that poor girl” thing. This is a GOOD thing!
See, by giving up on the idea of falling in love and having a fairy tale happy ending, I’ve learned that I really am happier alone. I like having the whole bed to myself, making decisions without factoring in a partner, or even just watching what I want on TV every night.
