8 Reasons Why You Should Remain Single Forever

November 16, 2021

We have shared reasons why you should be in a relationship, but what if it’s the opposite you need? Here are eight important reasons why you should NOT make the mistake of falling in love and finding yourself in a relationship.

In other words, avoid it like a plague.

1. What if you people don’t break up?

As in, you actually fall in love and can’t live without them. Bad bish like you? God forbid.

2. Relationships lead to “see finish”

No one needs to know so much about your life. One minute, you guys are all loved up, kissing, cuddling and doing all the bad bad things in the world, the next, you people fight and they go on Twitter to tell everyone that your snore sounds like I-better-pass-my-neighbour generator and you fart every time you get aroused.

3. Crazy people are everywhere

When Tems said, “Crazy things are ‘appening”, you thought she was joking? What if they turn out to be crazier than your crazy, and you had to deal with that every day? Please end that talking stage today.

4. To protect yourself

Not being in a relationship is the best form of self preservation. No one can hurt you if they don’t have access to you.

5. Dating is expensive as hell

The system is designed to finish your money – date nights, Valentines Day, birthday, anniversary… Wait, how much is your salary again?

8 Things No-one Really Tells You About Love And Relationships

6. Remember your last heartbreak?

Did you like who you were because of them? You want to suffer times two? Guessed as much.

7. You are usually the problem

Instead of looking for a brand new relationship to unleash your terror, fix yourself, before you traumatise another person’s child.

8. What if only one of you japas?

Love can be sweet, but distance brings a dose of bitter leaf to the mix. And that is what will happen if only one of you manages to japa. Proceed with caution.

If you still want to give relationships a try, here are vital things to bring to the table.
