The mere act of living single is still considered a political or deliberate act in some schools of thought.

People assume being single is either an act of defiance – a refusal to follow society’s rules – or they think the opposite, and that it’s something to be shamed or a failure.  

But really, what if it’s neither? What if someone is perfectly happy being single, and just isn’t interested in mingling.

This is for those people: the people who are happy just being happy, waiting to see what life has waiting around the corner for them and no pressure for that to include love, marriage, and a baby carriage.
