I was single for well over a year, and I spent nearly all of that time reconnecting with my friends. When I started dating my most recent ex, I realized I missed not having to check in with someone all the time. I love not having to worry about jealousy, or the fact that almost all of my friends are guys. I hate the mentality of "Oh, he's a guy friend who isn't gay. You must be sleeping with him." I definitely don't miss all the drama associated with it! Simply, the best part of being single is all the freedom I have to do what I want to.
However, I really miss that intimate connection we had. I can't say I feel alone often, because I have some of the best friends ever, and we're pretty much all single right now. I do really hate seeing couples, though. They make me miss a lot of that cute stuff.
