On October 21st 2012 I ended my almost seven-year relationship with my partner (I remember the date because it was the day before Taylor Swift’s album Red came out, which became the soundtrack to my breakup.) Since then I have been single. This may not seem like such a huge deal but there are a few things you need to know.
My parents got married at the ages of 23 and 25 and they’re still together. I’m now 24 so there’s a bit of pressure.
Since I no longer have a partner I also have no one to move out with so I’m still living at home, which can make dating a little awkward.
Just because I fall for both men and women (so I have double the fish in the sea) doesn’t make it any easier.
These are just a few of my excuses, trust me, there’s a lot more where that came from.
One of the excuses I will not use is how I look because I don’t want this to turn into one of those blogs that attracts negative comments about a woman’s body.
So, without further ado, I give you the reasons I am still single.
It’s not just me, it’s also you.
