Am I Normal For Wanting to be Single? By Rachel Russo

Question: Am I normal for wanting to be single?

Answer: Totally normal! Not everyone needs to be in a relationship in order to be happy. In fact, being in a relationship will not make you happy for the long term if you aren’t already happy.

While we all desire love deep down, it is totally okay to not have romantic love and give and receive love to your friends, family, and self.

Don’t let anyone make you feel there is something wrong with you for wanting to be single.
