I am a girl in my late 20s and I am proud that marriage is not my priority right now

Being single in late 20s...


Being single in your 20s could be challenging and confusing. Most of your friends are either getting married, stepping into new relationships (and posting about it in social media), traveling with their partners, or having babies. And let’s not even talk about parental pressure. But wait, instead of feeling insecure and cribbing about my love life, here are a few reasons why being single in late 20s is the best thing that has happened to me…


2. ​It’s my self-exploration time

​It’s my self-exploration time


20s is the best time for self-discovery, and to understand the purpose of your life. Rather than investing my time and energy in a relationship, I am spending this precious time with myself, and understanding what I exactly want out of my life.


3. ​My career matters

​My career matters


It is the best time to focus on my career as I am not burdened by any financial responsibilities, nor do I have any emotional hang-ups. I am exploring my full potential, and do not mind working a few hours extra in office every month.


4. ​I am my own boss

​I am my own boss


I love the fact I do not need to seek someone’s approval for doing anything in my life. Whether it’s catching up with a guy friend for coffee, instant travel plans or moving to a new city—I am the only one who’s going to take the final call.


5. ​Meeting new people

Being single comes with a lot of freedom! I meet new people every day, hang out with them and experience new things in life. I bet my committed friends secretly crave for this!


6. ​I am independent

​I am independent


Being single in my 20s has made me an independent person. I do not need a guy in my life for emotional support, pampering, paying my bills or dropping me home if I have got late. I can manage it all.


7. ​I am responsible for my own happiness

Till I don’t find ‘the one’, my happiness lies in my own hands. While my friends crib about going through a bad phase in their relationship, the annoying habits of their partners, being cheated, et al, I take a deep breath and feel blessed being single!
