10 Things That Can Bring You Just as Much Happiness as a Relationship ...

By Holly

You don't need to date in order to be happy with your life. There are plenty of other reasons why you should get out of bed in the morning. That's why you shouldn't stress if you're single. Here are a few things that can bring you just as much happiness as a relationship can:

1 Your Career

Your Career Despite what some women will tell you, you should always put your job before your love life. It's much more important for you to find something that you love doing than for you to find a man that you love. After all, men can come and go. You might end up dating a dozen of them before you die. However, you should try to find one career you can stick with for the rest of your life and never leave it.

2 Reading Romance Novels

Reading Romance Novels You don't have to date, because you can read about fictional characters that are dating. Live vicariously through them. Even though you might be jealous of the good times they have, you won't have to feel the pain that they feel when their relationship comes to an end. Besides, reading about romance can prepare you for your own romance in the future.

3 Trying New Things

Trying New Things The best part about dating someone new is experiencing certain things for the first time. Of course, there are plenty of new experiences you can go through without a boy by your side. You can try visiting a new country, eating new foods, or learning a new hobby. Do whatever you can to bring some excitement into your life.

4 Taking Care of Yourself

Taking Care of Yourself Sure, it would be nice for a boy to buy you jewelry for Valentine's Day, but you know what's even better? The sense of accomplishment you'll feel once you're able to buy yourself something expensive. Knowing that you can take care of yourself will bring you the type of joy that no boy could ever recreate.

5 Getting Tattoos

Getting Tattoos Instead of finding someone to marry and vowing to spend the rest of your lives together, there are other permanent changes you can make in your life. For instance, you can think about getting some new ink. Just make sure that you think it through, because you don't want to end up regretting it in the future. Just like getting divorced, getting your tattoo removed is painful.

6 Your Friends

Your Friends You don't have to be in love with a boy in order to experience love. You've already experienced it! I mean, don't you love your parents and your best friends? Even though you don't have any romantic feelings towards them, it doesn't mean that your love for them isn't important. It is!

7 Loving Yourself

Once you can say that you're happy with the person you are, everything else will fall into place. After all, you've heard that it's hard to love someone else until you're able to love yourself, and it's the truth!

8 Travelling

When you're in a relationship travelling can often be quite difficult because you have another person's travel wishes to consider, but when you're solo you can go as soon as you're ready with nothing holding you back!

9 Being Independent

When you learn to love yourself, you're going to know that it's important to spend time with yourself and to practise being an independent woman. In unhealthy and toxic relationships you can feel suffocated or even trapped due to lack of personal space, which can definitely make it harder to do both of these things.

10 Making Your Own Happiness
