So you’re single, congratulations! Sort of…

Today is the last Saturday of the year and if you are still single, (cue panic attacks) I guess that’s another failed resolution for 2013. If your mother like mine has tired of trying to U-Haul you out of being single, not to worry, I got your back. By the time you are done with this article, you will still be single (come on, did you really think getting a partner was that easy?) but you will have learnt to love your status and your glass will be forever half full during the season…

First off, this is not the time to set boring goals and resolutions on how to bag someone in 2014. Just because everywhere you look is filled with smiling couples doesn’t mean you have a bad deal; the grass always being greener on the other side and all that. Instead, we’re gonna spend quality time counting all the great things in your life starting with (drumroll please)

  • You’re not in a bad, loveless, abusive, crazy assed marriage
  • You’re not in a bad, loveless, abusive, crazy assed relationship
  • You are not in a cheating, relationship full of lies and unfulfilled promises
  • You are not simply a part of someone, expected to turn up and play your role
  • You don’t have to meet boring pretentious couple from last year just because your partner knew them from way back
  • You don’t have to go to that awful jazz bar you hate just because someone wants to
  • You can sleep as late as you want to and not have to politely meet some long lost friend despite your cold
  • You can eat all the Christmas cake, chicken, and all the goodies you want without anyone making you feel guilty
  • Speaking of Christmas goodies, you don’t even have to share with anyone…
  • Remember that cheesy red sweater your aunt Hanna gave you? You can finally wear it. Everyday till spring if you wanted to
  • You don’t have to spend bucket loads of money buying gifts for someone (I’m just saying…)
  • You don’t have to pretend to uhh and ahh at a gift you clearly hate
  • You’re yet to meet the fabulous person you will spend the rest of your life with
  • You can hit all the clubs you want, dance with all the hotties to your heart’s content and not be guilty of ANYTHING!
  • single + mistletoe. You do the rest…
  • Then all the new year’s parties. The list is endless…

If all these fails to raise your spirit, convince yourself that you are in a long distance relationship because your partner is in the future. And if you’re still single on 14th February, I will edit this article and publish it again. I’ve always been very good at recycling…
