I’ve been asked this question more than once and today my coworker asked me it: “Have you ever had a boyfriend?”
I used to be ashamed to say the answer but i’m not anymore: no. And now i’m sat here writing this blog post and thinking of reasons as to why i’ve never had a boyfriend.
I admit that my standards used to be high but i’ve come to accept that there is no perfect guy out there. That doesn’t mean that I now set my sights on every guy that shows me the slightest bit of attention but instead i’ve learned that my life ain’t a Disney movie and I’m not Cinderella, or Sleeping Beauty, or Snow White. And partly because no guy was ever as chivalrous as Prince Charming (just kidding, maybe).
I think another part of it is that i’ve spent my teen years working on myself as a person. How could I have completely been there for someone if I’m still not completely confident with myself? How could I figure someone else out if i’m still trying to figure myself out? And how could I make decisions on the behalf of someone else if I couldn’t even do that myself? (shit, I still can’t even make decisions for myself!). My point is that it’s important to become your own person before you decide to devote yourself to another person.
And call me heartless if you want but i’ve always seen relationships as two things: you either break up or get married. And at this age I don’t think anyone is ready for that. I understand that you definitely learn from relationships but I never wanted to spend my youth regretting things i’ve done or people i’ve been with because now is the best time to be free of all worries until shit in life gets real. Maybe that’s just me having my guard up but i’ve learned vicariously through my friends and if there is one thing i’ve learned from relationships it’s to know your self worth!!! And honestly if i was in a relationship in high school I don’t think i’d have enough self-preservation to realize any of the things that I do now.
Idk. Maybe this is all me trying to justify that i’m not a prude but I don’t care anymore. Im not going to lie and say that I never wanted a relationship (what girl hasn’t?!) but I never saw it as a necessity. I never wanted to depend on one person to be the source of my happiness. Never wanted my life to revolve around one person which, at this age, shouldn’t be the case. This may be all one-sided and you may think that just because i’ve never been in a relationship that my perspective isn’t valid but i’ve learned a lot from being single my whole life. I’ve learned my likes, dislikes, who I want to surround myself with, who I don’ t want to surround myself with, and have become more comfortable with myself.
I know one day i’ll come and read this and think “wow what a bunch of bullshit” but for now this is my answer as to “why I’ve never had a boyfriend.” And I know that there are always exceptions to the rules. If and when a guy comes and changes my whole perspective on this at least i’ll have something to come back to and laugh at but for now, I’m content with my status and wouldn’t have had it any other way.
