Being Happily Single doesn’t mean you’ve sworn off love. It doesn’t mean that you’re ready to sign a lifetime oath of singleness, or that you’ve given up the hope of finding your Happy Ending. It simply means that you’re determined to have a Happy Everything. It’s recognizing that you don’t need or want to be rescued from your life by a handsome prince, because your life is pretty awesome as is.

Happily Single is traveling wherever you want, whenever you want. It’s doing Zumba around your apartment in your pajamas at midnight and eating ice cream for dinner if the mood strikes. Happily Single is devoting your time to your passions, dreams, and goals without distractions. It’s figuring out your path before you join someone else on theirs. Happily Single is refusing to compromise any part of yourself to fit into a mold someone else created for you.

Happily Single is also the precursor to Happily Taken. You simply can’t have one without the other. Happily Single is holding out for the best and letting go of the rest. It’s saying “I will and I can” to yourself before you say “I do” to someone else. It means you’re not looking for a Better Half because you are already whole. And ultimately, it means that someday when you do invite someone to join you on your journey, it will be because he complements your life, not because he completes it.
