Relationships. One of the most confusing topics throughout our teenage years. They can be valued so highly that we often feel left out if were not in one. You might receive those dreadful statements such as “why don’t you have a boyfriend?” or “you haven’t dated anyone in a long time!” UGH. News flash: being single is perfectly okay! If you need some convincing, here are a few reasons.

  • Independence. Of course having someone to rely on is great but learning how to stand on your own is a good quality to have. If you know your worth, you can be strong and independent on your own.
  • Figuring out yourself. Being as young as we are, we’re still trying to figure ourselves out. Being in a relationship can alter the way you think whether you want to admit it or not. Learning to love yourself before loving someone else is a very important concept that most people ignore.
  • Less time-consuming. For teens, there isn’t enough time in the day. We have to juggle school on top of homework, sports, work, church, family, friends, etc. If you barely have enough time for yourself, then you won’t have enough time to devote to another person.
  • Less stress. Being in a relationship can be extremely stressful. Girls especially worry and overthink a lot. And the number one topic we do this over? Boys! Make sure you’re trusting and confident before getting into a committed relationship.

This being said, being single can get old at times! It’s nice to be in a relationship every once in a while as long as you’re ready. But just because you’re not in one doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing! Enjoy the single life!

Best Things About Being Single in the Fall

Its fall yall! It’s a great time to be alive…and to be single! Yeah, going to the pumpkin patch with a cute dude sounds super fun, but you know what else sounds fun? The stuff below! Here are a few reasons why being single in the fall is fabulous.

  1. Guys in flannels: fall = flannels, flannels + cute dudes = heart eyes emoji. And you can stare because you are single!single 4
  2. Guilt free PSL indulgence: You won’t have to worry about a guy saying “don’t you ever get tired of pumpkin spice..?”
  3. No cheesy couples Halloween costume: Yes, couples Halloween costumes can be cute, but they’re sometimes slightly obnoxious. Like, if I want to be Elsa from Frozen, no one can stop me! I don’t need a dude to sing “Let it Go” at the top of my lungs with. I’m a solo act.
  4. Candids.: You and your gal pals can take “candid” pictures of yourselves mid-laugh in the pumpkin patch, looking like Instagram models. You don’t need a guy to have a impromptu photo shoot, that’s what bffs are for. Guys are not so good at staged candids. “Look happy! You look mad. Just act like you’re happy then! Ugh, my friends are way better at this than you are.” That is how I imagine that conversation with a guy going.

See? Being single during the fall can be loads of fun. Having a guy is fun too, and there are tons of fun fall date ideas out there, but this post is for my single ladies.

Who says you have to have a boyfriend to make you happy? So many girls find their self-worth and happiness through the guys they date. I want to tell you that the single life is a GOOD life! Just because you don’t have a boy toy doesn’t mean you aren’t pretty or likeable, it just means God has bigger plans for you! Here are a few ways to be happily single.

  1. Enjoy your independence: When you have a boyfriend you aren’t just thinking of yourself anymore because your actions impact both of you. When you are single, you have so much freedom! Want to go out with friends Friday night? DO it! You won’t have a boyfriend competing for your attention! Enjoy this time with your girlfriends, because before long you will all be going off to college and growing apart as you grow up.FullSizeRender (8)
  2. Figure YOU out: These teenage years are crucial for us teenage girls! These are the years where we are figuring out who we are and what we are all about. Sometimes having a boyfriend can cause us to put our thoughts/feelings on the back burner and focus more on his. Be confident and sure of yourself and who you are!
  3. Trust God’s timing: I don’t stress about being single because I know that it is just God preparing the perfect guy for me. Plus, he is preparing ME for the perfect guy! You may feel ready to meet your prince charming, but God may have other plans. Don’t stress, just enjoy life where God has you. The perfect guy will come along when you least expect it. 

So, if you are single, just enjoy it! I know I do!

XOXO, Chels
