Being single is talked about negatively way too often. Whether in movies, in the media, or just in passing, those who are single — whether by an intentional choice to be so or not — are sometimes looked upon as people living less-than-desirable lives. But why do people think being single so bad? Why does not being in a relationship automatically qualify someone as being lonely?

As a young 20-something who is just entering the workforce full time, in addition to being in the midst of completing my college education, there's a whole lot on my plate. Finals, deadlines, applications, a social life — it's often hard to remember everything I have to do in one day. And so, because of this, it's hard to even imagine myself dating someone as my time is limited and I'd never want to be in a relationship where I wasn't giving my partner my all. 

I'm A Balding, Middle-Aged Bloke - Here's Why Demi Lovato's 'Sober' Speaks To Me

  I'm A Balding, Middle-Aged Bloke - Here's Why Demi Lovato's 'Sober' Speaks To Me As a balding, middle-aged bloke who works for the Mental Health Foundation, you might not think I have a lot in common with American singer Demi Lavato - but her new song ‘Sober’ speaks to me. Despite our obvious differences and means of expression - you really don’t want to hear me sing! - we share the shame, confusion and sense of powerlessness over our addiction to alcohol.In it, Demi describes relapsing into problem drinking after six years of sobriety and - as I reach my own nine-year anniversary of abstinence -  her words are a warning.

Being single can decrease the stress in your life.

So for starters, those who are single are not always lonely because, quite frankly, they have a ton going on in their lives. While dating can bring much pleasure, it often can feel like an added stress, and for those who are already stressed to the max, it's just not an extra thought they want to take on.

Being single also gives you the time to focus on yourself.

At the same time, one may choose to be single in order to focus on self-discovery or increasing self-confidence. I've very open about my body image issues and how deep rooted they truly are. In high school or even just a few years back, I could never even imagine having to be completely vulnerable in a physical sense to a significant other because of my utter lack of confidence.

And so, my teenage-self choose to be single and it turned out to be the best decision for me at that time. Living the single life allowed me to focus on myself and my insecurities and to learn, through a long process, how to love my many imperfections. During this period, I wasn't lonely at all; I was finally learning who I was and wanted to completely focus on that.

Have you realized "Damn, I ' m lonely "? Here are 10 sad but truth things single people never talk about. Can you relate? They don' t understand that I ' m lonely and what it means to be so. But, allow me to tell you.

Of course, singleness can cause loneliness for some.

But, of course, not everyone chooses to be single. At times, you may find yourself unwantedly single which may make you feel, to some degree, lonely. If the desire is there, this is understandable. And, frankly, why is it so bad to feel lonely? It's a natural feeling that some who aren't dating will experience. But what's important to note is that being single and feeling lonely are not mutually exclusive qualities.

Like me, you can be single and not be lonely. Or, like some others, you can be the opposite. Neither one of these situations is unbelievable: some have the desire to date and some do not. So, it's never okay to assume that someone who isn't in a romantic relationship is feeling alone or abandoned. Although these feelings may appear, they certainly don't for everyone, myself included.

Things You Only Know If You're Single & Over 35 .
The following is an extract from I’m Absolutely Fine! by Annabel Rivkin &amp; Emilie McMeekan. Why is it, in this enlightened age, that 'single', with all its freedom and opportunity, retains the suggestion of pity?&nbsp;Why is it, in this enlightened age, that 'single', with all its freedom and opportunity, retains the suggestion of pity? Maybe it’s the word. It implies being left: 'still single'. There’s no active choice inferred by 'remaining single'. We are all born single and single we stay until we are chosen. Alone. A problem waiting to be solved.
