15 Things Women In Relationship Miss About… Being Single!
By- Shreya Sharma
Being in a happy and healthy relationship is wonderful. It is like the blessing when you love someone and have someone who will love you back. But even after being in a great relationship, we all have times when we miss our single life. Those were the times when we were not answerable to anyone, and our actions did not affect anyone. Here are 15 things women in relationships miss being single.
Earlier you could flirt with anybody without any guilt. But now flirting or stalking someone drags you through the guilt trip and you feel guilty about the kind of girlfriend you are.
Earlier your free time used to be dedicated to your books, you used to read your well-maintained book collection, but now you spend your time doing things with your partner.
Having one family to deal with
Earlier, you just had to deal with the complaints of your family and had to manage your holidays with your family and sickness. But now you have two families but the limited holidays that you have to manage between both your families.
Comfortable, ugly “Ghar k kapu”
When you are in a relationship, you feel like you need to wear the best of your clothes, even the night wears to keep the fire going. And earlier, you used to enter you home and change your clothes into your most comfortable rugged and faded pajamas and t-shirt.
Working for your own needs
When you are single, you just think about yourself and your needs. But when you are in a relationship, you sometimes have to miss out on the things you want in order to fulfill the things your partner wants.
Doing gross things
When you were single it was no less than a therapy to do the gross things like biting your fingernails, ear picking, scratching your scalp to look for dandruff and other things. But when you are in a relationship, you make sure your partner is away from you before you do any such gross thing.
Going days without shower
When you are single, there is no one to judge you for not taking the shower. You can spend your day lazing around in your home.
You are happy to be a part of the real world where fights are resolved with real discussions. But you miss the time when things were simple, clear and repercussion-free that was your time on Tinder.
Sleeping on the whole bed
Sharing your bed with your partner requires a lot of adjustment, especially when you had always been sleeping alone. Yes, you have to share your bed.
Waxing when required
When we are single, we wax, shave, get the threading done or the blackheads removed on the basis of our needs, particularly when we need to go out. But when you are in a relationship, you need to be groomed always because your partner will be there lying next to you.
When you are single, you can have alone time whenever you want. You can even pretend as if you are not at home even when the doorbell rings. But when you are in a relationship, it is hard to have some ‘me time’.
Hang out with your friends
When you are single, you have enough time to spend with your best friends gossiping about each and everything. But when you are in a relationship, it is hard to make spontaneous plans with your best friends.
The first kiss
First kisses are over-rated yet they are magical. You miss being single to feel your first kiss again.
Control over TV
When you are single, you have full control over what you watch and when. But when you are in a relationship, there are shows that you love but he cannot stand. Then there are shows you have to wait for him to catch up to watch together. Then there are shows you have promised to watch together, so you have to wait for them.
Not sharing your food
When you are single, you can have the whole pizza by yourself. But when you are in a relationship, your partner will be shocked if you give him nasty looks for eating from your plate or taking a bite from your food.
