Yet another pros and cons list of singledom

Little Miss Independent has been kicked out of the writers seat for the night. A mini internal breakdown is currently going on and my rationality is out of order.


  • marathoning your favorite TV shows on DVD in your underwear is permitted every weekend. 
  • you can put on makeup whenever you want, and it's just for you
  • sweats
  • no one to pester you about the books you're reading 
  • you can sleep in whatever position you want in bed every night without having to worry about pulling blankets off of another person and all of the pillows are yours. 
  • You get to know yourself more. 
  • You get to shamelessly stare and flirt with other guys without feeling guilty about it. 
  • No one to judge you for eating a whole pint of ice cream in front of sappy movies when you've had a bad day. 


  • On those really shitty days where you just want to lay in bed and cry there's no one to put their arm around you and whisper to you that things will be okay. 
  • Every other one of your friend's on your Facebook feed is getting engaged, pregnant or married and your just there. 
  • Pillows are sucky cuddle-rs after a while. 
  • When you finish a book or some other big accomplishment that you want to gush about and your friends pr family aren't close you have no one to tell them to.  

  • no one to to help you with your car if you're not mechanically inclined. 
  • You have no one to stop you when you accidentally click on your ex's new girlfriend and see that she's mutual friend's with half of yours and your ex's sweetheart of a little sister and you break your own heart after keeping it held together for so long. 
  • No one to share books and movies nights with. 
Yeah, so clearly the last 3 or 4 months haven't really been the best for me. But they also haven't been the worst.  I'm not complaining because life is   just a series of trials and tribulations, especially dating. But tonight I was feeling especially lonely, so there ya go internet. 


  1. I understand and agree with this list and would like to add:

    Pro - No one to judge you for eating an entire jar of nutella in a day because it was sucky

    Con- No one to take you out for margaritas and then have hot sex with when all you want to do is forget the shit day you've had.

    1. Amen!! Thanks for the additions :)

  2. And you can wear make-up wherever you want - I'm quite partial to the odd moustache :P x

  3. You've picked a pretty good list of pros and cons. There are upsides and downsides to everything. I've been in a relationship for almost 9 months now...before that I was single for over a year. There are perks to my current situation, but there are times when I miss the freedom of being single. Pros and cons all around. No matter what, there is always green grass on the other side of the green is it? Well, that's your decision to make. I think you have a lot going for you, even if you do feel down sometimes. Enjoy yourself, be free, and trust that when the time is right, a new relationship will come to you :)

    1. Thank you Shane, I appreciate your kind words. I can't believe that you and Ramona have been together for 9 months! That's awesome, I wish you both the best :)


Thank you for leaving me an assorted thought of your own. :)
