Disclaimer: I am by no means a relationship expert nor do I claim to be. I am however fully proficient at being single having accrued many years experience.
Disclaimer Part Two: I am fully aware that there is nothing wrong with being single. Having a partner in your life is not the be all and end all. You do not need another person to validate your existence. YOU are enough.
Disclaimers aside, the last time I was single I felt a teeny tiny pressure to make out to the world that I was happy that way. My ego told me 'you'll come across as weak you daft loner' and 'the world will wonder what's wrong with you if you WANT a man but don't actually HAVE a man.'
