Why I’d rather be single than settle

    Oh I absolutely loved this! I cannot agree more – you never know whats behind the pictures. I know one girl on social media who used to post amazing photos of her life and relationship, until it came out that he’d been abusing her physically and emotionally. Like you have said – it is SO much better to be single rather than be with a complete twat.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Yes I’ve had my fair share of miserable relationships in the past so I definitely understand what you mean. It’s funny that now I’m in a genuinely happy relationship, I feel no need for Valentines celebrations or fancy gifts.

    My ex hubby always made a fuss and sent me huge bunches of flowers but it turned out he also cheated on me at least 3 times, so I agree things are not always what they seem. My new husband never buys me flowers but I know 100% he loves me and would much rather that then a fake relationship!! great post xoxo

    We actually wrote about really similar things today, because this is exactly what I was thinking today. Even though perhaps I wish I was in a relationship, I don’t mind because I’d much rather be alone than with the wrong person x

    I couldn’t agree with you more my love – I’m glad to be single again and only have to worry about ME. I don’t want to compromise anymore, I want to be truly happy. And if that means being alone and occasionally feeling lonely, then so be it. Happy valentine’s day you absolute babe. x

    You’re totally right — seeing it as a disadvantage is such a crazy way to look at it! Thanks for sharing such insightful thoughts!

    Firstly, the caption under the picture made me laugh more then it should of.
    You’re totally right about what people post on social media sites verses what actually goes on in relationships. I’m sorry the New York boy has cheated on you. Totally his loss as you’re such a catch!

    Even as someone in a long-term, committed relationship I highly agree with this. I can’t imagine settling for anything less at all – never once in six years have I thought that I could do better. Yes, there’s cross words, occasional irritation, but there’s no point staying in an unhappy relationship just because! x

    I’m so not into Valentine’s Day, I feel like it has become a massive exercise in ‘Keeping up with the Jones’ ‘ and so I’ve banned it for the last few years (from my house that is, not society) but I totally agree how true this is, I see so many people settling for second best or just not good enough and it makes me sad.
    I always think you should look back to 6-7 year old you, would she be impressed with the fella on your arm or would she be horrified that he’s actually not your prince but you’ve accidentally landed Jafar… This always helps me keep things in perspective.

    LOVE this Vix. I’m in a relationship but I have been in previous relationships where I haven’t been myself or it’s not been right & I stayed because I knew no different. This year I didn’t wake up to flowers, breakfast in bed, presents etc & you know what I didn’t give a flying f* because I didn’t ‘need’ or ‘want’ someone to feel they had to buy me something to show me their love.

    One day your ‘perfect’ man will come along until then kiss as many frogs as you want because it’s your life & you can do what the hell you want!!!

    I love how honest and thought provoking your posts are!! ‘Lily’ was definitely me a few months ago, except I was ‘seeing’ a guy for almost a year and half who didn’t want to commit and didn’t text me for days if he had better things to do but expected me to be there whenever he wanted me. I stayed with him as I always hoped and told myself it would get better but it never did and I was so scared of breaking up and being lonely. We broke up in December and yes I don’t have anyone to wake up with and spend lazy evenings with but I’m so much happier and confident than I’ve been for such a long time. Though I’m definitely not quite enjoying single tinder life as much as you are….why are all the super likers so creepy??

    Oh my goodness. I so relate to this. I wrote a blog post a couple of years ago called "Your standards are too high" – that was something one of my friends said to me in regards to my standards for dating someone, which to me are such basic things. I just refuse to compromise or lower my standards for the sake of not being single.
