As you may or may not be aware, me and Hannah are now both single.
The thing I always find so strange about being single, is that people seem to be in constant pursuit of trying to change that, when sometimes, being on your own for a while is the best thing to do. Being single allows you to be selfish, not in a horrible way, but you make decisions based on you, without having to factor in another person, and so you never end up resenting someone for not allowing you to reach your full potential.
I suppose it's only human nature to want to find someone to spend the rest of your life with, but I'm only seventeen and have a whole lot of life left yet.
I hope I don't come across as bitter because I really don't hate men - if anything I'm something of a romantic. I don't go for the soppy over-the-top stuff like those huge cards they sell in Clintons with love hearts plastered all over them, but I like simple things, things that show just how well you know each other. If someone knows me really well, they know that I won't want a big bar of chocolate when I'm upset, but I really want some Jelly Tots, or they'll know to buy me Company magazine rather than OK! and I hope that I would pick up these little quirks about the other person too.
All in all, I don't think it matters what your relationship status is: single, in a relationship or some complicated situation somewhere in the middle, as long as you're happy and no one else is getting hurt. That's all anyone can ask for, really.
