iawtcsfm. i think there's this idea in our culture/society that if you're not constantly in a relationship, there's something wrong with you. ppl demonize the idea of enjoying/being okay with spending time alone and act like being single is some terrible trial when really, you can't be in a functional relationship if you don't know or love yourself. your relationships with others are a mirror. and anyway, when we're in our 20s we have a lot to worry about -- school, jobs, paying off student loans, figuring out what we want to do with the rest of our lives. i'm 22 rn and i could not imagine being in a real relationship when i'm already so busy trying to figure out my future.
