Yesterday, on my Facebook page I posed a question: “Those of you in relationships, what do you miss most about being single?”
Of course, I’m very happily married and wouldn’t trade what I have now for anything, but there are times I do miss the convenience and simplicity of being single. Actually, what I really miss when I miss the single life isn’t so much being single — I kind of hated being single, to be honest — but being in a long distance relationship. I mean, yes, eventually being in an LDR sucked donkey balls, but for a while it was sort of like having the best of both worlds: I got the joy or knowing I’d found someone I really, really liked and the anticipation of where things might lead, AND I still had lots of time to myself to do whatever I wanted (which generally included many drinks with friends, too much bad TV, tons of bike rides, and entire summer weekends spent at the beach).
So, now I will ask you: if you’re in a relationship, what do you miss most about being single?
