      Lmao! Thank. U.. Nigerians & freebies. All of a sudden my BN sisters love to be single. If BN features a wedding in 1sec, they will start tapping or asking ‘ Oluwa the boo provider’ when is their turn ???.

      I love being single because it has brought me closer to knowing myself and it gives me the opportunity to be free and to also choose to sleep whenever I like with being obligated to go and visit a boo. I can travel anywhere I want without being questioned. The best part about being single really is the fact that I have become so aware of my self that I know what I want and what I deserve and what/who will make me happy when I decide to date.

      So bellanaija just discriminated against single people living out of Lagos. You just added singleness to our singleness. Lol! It is not only Lagos people that read BN o!
      Since, we are not in competition, I will still write, for fun sake.
      I love being single because I want to concentrate on school even though in truth I think I have a problem about thinking of myself in relationships. I am 21 and I get angry at being approached for a relationship. I really get angry at it. Well, I dont know what the problem is. But, maybe I want to focus and finish school with a good result. Or maybe it is a bigger problem I cnt explain since I love locking myself indoors when i am not busy. The only social life I have is reading and commenting on Bellanaija.
      I love being single because nobody calls and I dont have to call…. Lol,bye!

    Am a happy single cos am learning everyday at being happy with it while it last but most importantly am enjoying higher level of freedom ,self love, investment that would not come with marriage. i mean a committed marriage would most likely come with more sacrifice for others .

    I LOVE being single because……….

    well, I didn’t necessarily Love being single at first. But i broke up with my ex after he cheated on me with HIS “EX”. It took me a few months to stop being so butt-hurt/crying about it.

    When i finally did, my next and his next were already queuing. I decided to take a break, breath a little, get to know myself better.

    Well, two years later and I haven’t looked back.

    I’m in love with the woman I’ve gotten to know….. She’s strong, passionate, sometimes gullible, a little bit superstitious with the wildest imagination ever, and most surprisingly VERY VERY Verrrrrrrry PATIENT! My patience surpasses even my own understanding… guess I’m still a work in progress.

    Okies! so why do I like being Single because I don’t get to buy a valentines gift for anyone, I like to spend my money on me. But seriously I think being single just allows u enjoy the moment, no headaches, no heartaches. You can put all ur positive energy into fulfilling ur dreams. No distractions. I easily get distracted and it’s one of the reasons I decided to stay single for now until I build my business to a level. Relationships/Marriage will come so enjoy your Singleness while it last. Bia Bella I yam the winner o. I need a Laptop seriously for my business, that will be my best valentine gift. #Bellaismyonlybae.#Bellanaijaismyboofornow
    The comments keeps me entertained.

    I am happy being single because I have re-discovered myself, grown spirituality and appreciate much more than ever humanity and the beauty that lies beneath. I have had the opportunity to eschew bitterness and anger, pain and regret.l whilst growing my level of positivity and Optimus. It has developed strongly my faith in God and love, I have also had the opportunity to do things I love to do (I won’t have readily done them if I was with someone). Above all, being single has redefined what I want most from life and love and I have never being in a better state of mind and quietness than now

  43. Oladunjoye Olaide

    February 10, 2016 at 10:37 am

    Hello,Olaide is the name,a female.
    It’s sad that most people look at relationships like they’re the end-all, be-all of personal happiness. “I can’t be happy if I’m not taken!” seems to be the mantra of millions.I empathize because I used to be one of those people. Looking back a few years,I was insecure, unhappy, and I felt like the only way I could change all that was if I was dating someone.
    Well… My last relationship wasn’t exactly the healthiest and I wasn’t really happy. I don’t regret it because it taught me what to avoid in future relationships,but I shake my head when I think about the person I was then.I was so needy and dependent on the relationship that even while things were breaking apart, I desperately held on and tried to pick up the pieces that should’ve been left alone. My heart would be racing if he didn’t respond to my texts in less than a few minutes. I’d check up on him all the time. I was suspicious of all his female friends.That’s the sort of behavior that was normal for me. I couldn’t even imagine how it felt to go back to being… single,so of course, I kept holding on.
    Eventually, we broke up and I fell into what I call my darkest hours. I’d be trying to sleep and feel this intense pain throughout my body. My heartstrings felt cut,well that’s all gone.
    Now that I am single, I have the chance to build a better lifestyle, I am content with myself which I think would allow me get a higher quality partner.
    I am happy been [email protected] on IG.

    I love being single because… I don’t have to b scared of going out thinking I might caught by man,i love being single because at least I don’t burn my airtime calling someone who’s obviously cheating on me with another girl and still lying about it even after being caught, I love being single because I can for once be at peace and not wonder what he’s doing at the moment, I can freely walk and admire fine boys and compliment them (who sigh), I love being single because it gives you the time to heal and know exactly what you did wrong in the past relationship and b a better person for the rightful person, I love being single because it helps me concentrate, being single helped increase my sense of humor cos I laugh each time my friends complain about theirs and I thank God cos I ain’t ready for the drama lol. I love being single because now I do whatever I want…..

  52. oduks94

    February 10, 2016 at 10:44 am

    first and foremost i would like us to understand the two major concepts in the question i.e “Single and Happy”. let me start with happy or happiness: from my knowledge it is a mental state of mind where joy is a common denomination, i.e the mind is predominated by joy,a state of mind where you find rest, peace, joy, fulfillment,like,secured,hope etc. on the other hand single in this context is a situation where an individual is not in a relationship or in a relationship with commitments. Having briefly discussed the two major concepts, we are now fit to give a rational judgment on reason we are or as a matter of fact i am happy to be single, the following are the outlined points that will be briefly discussed
    1. lack of freedom
    2.relatively expensive to run
    3. time consuming
    4. emotional stress
    5. Academic distraction
    6.counter productive
    1. lack of freedom the day u start a relationship, that day u give way ur freedom, u dont have the reserved right to be at places u want to be because somebody will be offended, u always answer question like where are u ? what are u doing? who are u with? etc
    2. relatively expensive: being in a relationship is like is like maintaining a car, when you are not financially up to date dont even try it because you will be refered to as not being serious….
    i guess other points are self explanatory….cant carry on because of time

    February 10, 2016 at 10:46 am

    Why I am happy to be single?
    Hmmm…. Do I want to be single? The answer is no! I most definitely will love to have that ‘special someone’ in my life- to love and be loved. But until I meet the ‘one’, I’m happy being a single. I can post pictures of my male friends on my BBM dp without having to explain myself to anyone, I can flirt with that cute dude standing in line behind me while I purchase a movie ticket and I get to sleep with both eyes deliciously shut with no worries of the bootylicious pretty girl at bae’s office that has an insane crush on him.
    Apart from the daily stress of living in Lagos- traffic, work and all, my life is basically stress free, simple and not complicated by the complexities of trying to make a relationship work and keep him happy.
    I hope to met the ‘one’ soon, but until that glorious day comes, I’m happy, content and I live life the best way I can in emotional and mental development, better relationship with God and pretty much being fabulously single.

    I love being single because I am now self reliant (not independent), I can sleep in peace and I know what I DON’T want in a future relationship. Plus the good thing is I can flirt without fear and no one’s gonna question me if I’m away for days and my good friends can have more of me. I don’t lie anymore. Jesus is happy with me.

    I am happy to be single NOW ( I really don’t hope to be single this time next year even though I remain joyful irrespective ) because in my singleness I have had the opportunity to really discover and know myself intoto which am still doing now.I have also had the opportunity to mature… Bea 2 be has a very soft landing!
    In my singleness I also got to know that I can be single and complete!that I really don’t need a man, relationship or marriage to complete me, am complete and fulfilled in Christ!Which led to starting the #SinglenWhole movement.

    On a lighter note am also happy to be single because I don’t have to rack and Crack my head for valentine and gift ideas for the boo( am really terrible at this) my heart can be at peace and I can also channel the time and energy into other productive ventures.

    Am not anti relationship/marriage, marriage is beautiful and honorable!

    I am happy to be single for many reasons. Since I have been single, I have gotten better at socializing, I can actually enjoy a simple harmless conversation with guy when I go out without thinking my bf’s friend may be watching and misinterpret things then run off to do gbeborun. That freedom is like taking off my bra after a long day. And yes! guys do more amebo than women. I have learnt to be happy with myself, discovered my self, my dreams, my aspirations, I don’t have to consider aligning those things with a boyfriend’s life, opinion or requirements. I do more exciting things with my time, and money. That money one ehn, being single has taught to spend with sense (seeing that theres no bf to disturb when I’m broke). I actually prioritise and save. And most importantly, all these things have made me realise what I want whenever I decide I’m ready for a relationship, I will be able to make better choices.

    Single…. I doubt anyone enjoys being single or alone especially with a day like valentine coming up… they would rather be with someone they love and all that. But I am single and loving it, not everytime you get a do over and the chance to search for love again though it’s hard in this current time.. I am happy I am single and I love it cos I am getting to know me again, getting whole and learning God’s purpose for me so when the time comes to be in a relationship I am a complete person and whole not just an half to complete his half… so yes I love being single at this moment

    I love being single for many reasons;
    First, you get time to discover who you really are?
    Secondly, people around me in relationships can be used as a case study of what my expectations are when I get into a relationship (more of what I’ll be willing to offer or accept when in a relationship)
    Thirdly, because I honestly love my space
    Lastly, because Bella seems to feature all the hot guys with hashtags pre-wedding, engaged or married….you can try featuring some single ones too.???

    So here it goes… I have a billion and one reasons why i am happy to be
    single but it doesnt go without saying that i have not always been this
    way, i was that sucker-for-love-kinda-girl (yea, i know rightttttt..
    Righttttt?!). So right now i am basically happy to be single because i am
    tired of guys taking advantage of my vulnerability. Happy to be single cos
    i get to focus on my self amd channel my thoughts and energy into doing
    productive things and the fact that i can see the rewards gives me
    LIFE!!!.. I basically eat and breathe happiness being single.. One day i
    may have to share this happiness with someone but for now i feel like i can
    do bad all by myself (lol) … It feels good, i feel alive. ( oh yea.. And
    i get to fart under the sheets without anyone running away)..

    love being single because its the journey am on right now. it the path before real life commitment, as a child I am unable t discover the true essence of my feminity ..I am on a real journey of self discovery, travelling and seeing the world with carefree heart only my status as a single woman can afford. I make plans that make me better off so one day which will eventually arrive ill be that person whom another individual can enjoy her company thoroughly and live unselfishly for others called kids… being single is living selfishly for that day I have to live selflesy

    Have u ever wondered what it feels like going out all on your own without anybody hovering all around you? Wondered how it felt the moment you want to get something for just you and then you recall ‘oh, it has to be for 2’. How about the days you wanted to go stay over and hang out with your girlfriends and he says ‘baby, what about me,’ can you recall how angry you felt?. How about the times you want just want to be all about you but it just can’t. I love being a single female because I’m in control of me. It’s just all about me. Nothing too selfish about that, huh?

Relationships are good but, but the best relationship is the one you have with yourself.

    I have embraced being single for some years now, and i tell you it hasn’t being that bad. i love being single because it has given me more time to grow and appreciate myself. The love that would have being shared between myself and a bae has all being directed to just myself alone. The fact that i go home anytime and do whatever pleases me without being answerable to any bae is refreshing. I also get to make decisions on my own without compromising. To crown it all, i think it has also drawn me closer to God. The way i pray now sometimes even baffles me, being single has thought me some life lessons that i wasn’t even aware of when i had a bae. Most of all, being single has made me so independent and if i had my way i wouldnt change anything, That said, doesnt mean i dont want a special someone in my life, i am just happy at this point in my life being single and embracing everything that comes with it…..on a lighter note, #bellaisbae 🙂

    Am i happy being single? oh yes! and how do i know this……. I have been in several relationships, some ending badly others not so bad, some reaching the “wear a ring” stage and know the difference btw appearing happy and being happy.
    I can be Me – flaws, curves, edges! without an apology, it’s provided a time for self appreciation, discovery, development et al. it’s been a time of reflection on errors of the past and working to correct same in a bid to be a better person.
    it’s also provided a time of renewed relationship with God, outside the illusions of church and society (trust me! we all derive a false illusion of what how relationship with the transcendent being should be)
    In acknowledging how perfectly imperfect I am, i have discovered depths of joy and developed a metric for managing expectations of others. i have learnt to do the right things at the right time not because of anyone or to please anyone but because i understand the essence of it.
    I have discovered i can not be an island on my own and need companionship …. those lonely moments are not funny! *deepbreathe*
    I am happy because i KNOW ME! my limits, priorities …..
    And on a lighter note, i can eat what i want, go to bed without having to clock in and out, scope guys without wahala, travel the world, shooooooop, shop and shop!….sleep on anyside of my bed, press my toothpaste from any side, watch African Magic yoruba all day saturday (hehehe), meet people ….. generally have FUN

    Sorry for the long story, but even if this isn’t the winning piece, it gave me an opportunity to really think about my being happy! thanks for the outlet, BN

    Oh also not getting any guy Falentyne gift ? I mean, I have pending shopping carts to check out ???.

    I don’t have to worry about choosing to watch soccer over my favorite weekend shows. ?? like please I know they add no value but also does soccer ? Let me enjoy my shows in peace. Who can relate to this?

    Lol Let me be serious jare^. I am basically enjoying my single season with less worries or stress. I am not holding out to love. Love is the best part of living, But at the same time I am very proud to be able to make decisions on my own and handle responsibilities. Knowing who you’re are and planning your future is the single season.. When you find love, it sort of just adds to the flow. ❤️

    Hmmm. I love being single cos this has taught me the one and only lesson I have neglected on all my years on earth. SelfLove. The only lesson that is so vital but has been neglected in the school curriculum. Self love.!!! I’ve neglected and under appreciated my self for the longest time cos I have been too busy seeking appraisal and love from my significant others. Now I have the time to appreciate the size of my forehead right when no one Thinks it’s cute.I call myself beautiful regardless of the size of my acne/black spots. So right about now #BellaIsBae. For all the goodies I look forward to enjoying with myself for I am no longer afraid to be alone or spend time alone by myself cos being single has made me appreciate my own company even more. I think “MySelf” is grateful that I have finally stopped to acknowledge the awesome goodness that is “Me”. Now i laugh at my own jokes and all the scenarios I create in my head . Lol promise I’m not even mad,

      Get up, get up, get up, get up!
      Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up!

      Oh, baby now let’s get down tonight

      Ooh baby, I’m hot just like an oven
      I need some lovin’
      And baby, I can’t hold it much longer
      It’s getting stronger and stronger

      And when I get that feeling
      I want sexual healing
      Sexual healing, oh baby
      Makes me feel so fine

      Helps to relieve my mind
      Sexual healing baby, is good for me
      Sexual healing is something that’s good for me

      Whenever blue teardrops are fallin’
      And my emotional stability is leaving me
      There is something I can do
      I can get on the telephone and call you up baby

      And honey I know you’ll be there to relieve me
      The love you give to me will free me
      If you don’t know the thing you’re dealing
      Ohh I can tell you, darling, that it’s sexual healing

      Get up, get up, get up, get up
      Let’s make love tonight
      Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
      ‘Cause you do it right

      Baby, I got sick this mornin’
      A sea was stormin’ inside of me
      Baby, I think I’m capsizin’
      The waves are risin’ and risin’

      And when I get that feeling
      I want sexual healing
      Sexual healing is good for me
      Makes me feel so fine, it’s such a rush
      Helps to relieve the mind, and it’s good for us

      Sexual healing, baby, it’s good for me
      Sexual healing is something that’s good for me
      Well, it’s good for me and it’s so good to me my baby, ohh

      Come take control, just grab a hold
      Of my body and mind, soon we’ll be making it, honey
      I’ll be feeling fine,
      You’re my medicine, open up and let me in
      Darling, you’re so great, I can’t wait for you to operate

      I can’t wait for you to operate

      When I get this feeling
      I need sexual healing
      Oh when I get this feeling
      I need sexual healing
      I gotta have sexual healing, darling
      ‘Cause I’m all alone
      Sexual healing, darling
      Till you come back home

      Please don’t procrastinate
      It’s not good to masturbate

But Let’s face it, I still get butterflies when I got through Bellanija and Hope one day that will be me.lol

  103. Eyerene

    February 10, 2016 at 11:15 am

    I have loved being single for the following reasons;

    1. I used to think that the love a man will have for me, will help me understand the love God has for me. Being single had taught me that God loves me far beyond any man can ever love me and I can only use God’s love for me as a yardstick for my future Bae. He needs to love me unconditionally.

    2. I used to be a “he must be a this and he must be a that” kind of girl… But being single has made me ask myself very pertinent questions and has made me build myself towards being Mrs right.

    3. Being single has taught me so much about self esteem. The need to build your own portfolio, your own brand, your own strong personality… As most of the time, all that really matters is self confidence. You really want to go into a relationship being a strong and confident person.

    4. Being single had taught me the importance of friendships and family. Your friends and family never leave you. Never. During holidays etc, while others are getting baed up, I family and friend up. Lol

    5. I appreciate the fact that I truly enjoy being single. Like people don’t understand why I seem to say this a lot, even guys. I guess I have come to the point where I love myself too much and treasure myself way too much to only let in things that will improve me.

    Some years back when I was in relationships, I truly would not have thought that it was possible to draw strength from within than always looking to your Bae to give you strength. Being single had made me a stronger person as I now know that I can do all things, if I want to and I really do not have to base my success and happiness on another human.

Hopefully this doesn’t look like I’m doing the most or trying too hard . I’d be thrilled to be really happy this valentine. I’ve wondered for the longest time, how gloomy valentine might just be for me this year.

    I love been single cause its Stress-Free…trust me, relationship a-times brings headache! i don’t have to worry if i haven’t called BAE! Am more focused on improving myself and becoming a better person. Am loving myself more each day, not until someone tells me “i love you”. No one to spoil my mood or make me feel less of myself. Am now happier! i don’t also have to recharge my phone so much, to talk for hours with BAE at-least for now i haven’t borrowed credit from MTN in a while, lool! I can also hang out with my friends anytime i want to and i don’t have to snap with them to prove to BAE that i didn’t go out with some random dude!
    The craze of pleasing someone and displeasing yourself and changing who you are is OVER for me. Relationship is basically over rated! its just me, myself and I and am loving it, TRUST ME!

    follow @opssyangel on any social media(twitter, IG & snapchat), but please only if you are cute and you wont give me headache or do any of the things i just rant above ! Peace! hehehehehe

    I am happy being single for a whole lot of reasons, I can enjoy my own company and don’t need to share my space with anybody. I can make my own decisions, hang out with my friends without worrying, I decide how I want my room to look like and know that anywhere anything is I will come and meet it there, decide what I want to eat and when I want to eat. The list is endless.

    Being single has helped me appreciate what I have and better understand myself better(grooming), what my expectations in life are and also in a relationship.

    I am a beautiful young lady and I love being single because it has given me the second chance to discover who i really am and what i am worth.
    Having been separated from my hubby, being single has given me the opportunity to love myself and most importantly my daughter.
    Now I experience joy,peace of mind and above all,have gotten closer to God.
    Winning this treat would mean so much to me so my child and I can have a wonderful valentine’s day together.

    Single is not a status, is just a word that describes that am strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others, i am my own person and it gives me room to love myself enough so I can accept and respond to love from others…… I love my singlehood while it last.

Get to focus on myself and work without periodic heartache and tears caused by one dude that has the key to my heart *sigh. Still, Let’s face it, when I look at Bellanaija I wish that was me. Lol.

    I love being single Cause I don’t get to worry about a man cheating on me or scoping a babe. I get to admire cute guys without fear of getting caught. I have reversibly Turned for a shrink to my friends in relationships but It’s all good. I have the right turnup spots for rebound when they need it. I get to focus on me and What I love.

    I love being single because I know that most of these PDA’s are superficial. And a lot of these relationships are more heartache than joy. I love being single because I no longer receive slaps for being too tired for sex, I am no longer a slave, no longer a perpetual carrier of black eye expertly covered with concealer, while pasting fake smiles and putting on my ‘hallaluyah’ face, so people won’t know that my home is hell. I am proud to be single because I no longer cower at the sound of anyone’s voice, and i can be myself and be at peace with being me. I am proud of my experience because it puts me in a position to counsel and advice females who think being single means loneliness and sees it as a deep personal failure that being in a relationship isn’t always being happy. And I can say this because I have being there. So, I would rather be single, improve on me while waiting for the one who would complement me, build me up and encourage me to be more than rush into a relationship with one who tears me down just because I don’t want to be tagged single, thank you very much!

    I love being single because, it allows me to prepare myself well, as a woman, as a wife (to be someday) and as a mother (to be someday). I have been in different relationships and I’m just so tired of doing everything to please my significant other at the time, including spending my hard earned cash, (like I be him mama) if being single eventually becomes a thing to be ashamed of, you had better cast me for that TV series called shameless, because if not for anything, for the fact that I get to focus on me, on my life, define where my life is heading without carrying another person palapa join my own is pretty damn ENOUGH! I cannot come and go and die on top another man jollof rice , When I got the power to make my own afang soup!

    Q: Why do I love being single?

    A: 1. I love being single because I can wake up at 3 am to make hot eba, no body is there to give me the evil eye because of the racket I’m making.?

    2. On Thursday morning I can decide to visit my friend in Abeokuta during the weekend, change my mind on Friday, pack my bags early on Saturday morning and end up at Dominoes Pizza,Toyin Street, Ikeja. #formation #youknowwhatsup?

    3. I’m female. Everyday can be a no make up day, no undies day, everyday can be a bed (not bad) hair day. No one to remind you that you are not repping him well. So far, I’ve been repping myself pretty well with all my bits and pieces, look at my face, I’m not complaining. ?

    4. No struggling with anybody for the remote.

    Bella, you bae, bae ??

    And you, potential bae, if you want my social media handle, ‘come and collect it.’ ??

    I remember when not having a man during valentine mattered to me or even when I had to find one for valentine or any event or thing that mattered at the time.
    Being single has been supper interesting if u ask me.
    1. I don’t share my feelings cos its all mine and mine alone (SELF LOVE).
    2. I wont share or let him break my heart or heartbeat cos its right inside my chest and I need it to be alive (CARDIO SCIENCE).
    3. I don’t kiss, yup! cos when i wear my MAC lipstick once, am sure it wont smear or clean off until am back home from my “business” to wipe it off myself (SAVINGS)
    4. I watch my friends look good cos of their men, but I look fleek every time of the day, and I cant help but giggle when appreciating the compliments by them and their men (FLEEK)
    5. Bae in 3 years you haven’t had sex? An old friend yelled last week.. I flipped my wig and I replied yes but i don’t feel less sexy I feel tight and whole instead cos i got all my juice in one place (ECONOMICAL).
    6. Did I forget to mention that I haven’t missed my period or panicked at month end about not seeing my monthly blood shed… In fact, I look forward to it cos it tells me hoe fruitful and ripe I am… (HOPE)
    6. They say a man completes a woman world, yes and vice versa… but for me, The right handbag and shoes completes mine… YSL (In Bim’s voice in the DAIRY OF A LAGOS GIRL)
    7. I could go on and on but then… i got work to do… Don’t get it all wrong OK. Its just better to be single and happy than to be miserable in a marriage or engagement or in a common boyfriend relationship… so lets choose wisely (ADVISE).

I am single because I desire to someone i can grow in love with, someone who supports me, who is willing to make it work just as much as me. I don’t mind being single though because i am growing into the woman I aspire to be and learning to love myself in the process so i can give my future mister the kind of loving he doesn’t even know he needs.

    It has made me realise I do not need anyone to complete me…
    It has made me rediscover my purpose…
    I have discovered God all over again…
    I can be friends with whoever I want to be…
    I can go out with my girls and go on dates with guys…
    I am discovering myself all over again!
    I’m female 🙂

I miss trying to stay calm and let things go when I know that issue needs to trashed and I need to rant and ramble.

    I love being single because of the beautiful goodies that come with it:
    *trips and treats I get from admirers (awoof no dey run belle for my side cha cha :))
    *uninterrupted time to discover ME more and focus on my service to my God. I can praise Him in my room anyhow and whenever i want to without having to be bothered about a third party.
    *freedom to choose whom to hang out and enjoy my free time with.
    As a female, my mentality on being single has changed over the years and I’m going to keep enjoying it while it lasts. i do not see it as an unfortunate predicament that needs a solution in the name of being a Mrs somebody anymore. Becoming an asset and not a liability to my world is my watchword and my ‘singlehood’ has helped me so far to achieve this each passing day.

    Hi Bella! I absolutely love being single cos first of all, I have peace of mind. Being single especially in Nigeria helps you economize and save money. Imagine having a boyfriend this new year period that dollar isn’t smiling and you have to set aside some money for his birthday, anniversaries, valentine and Christmas. I am not a stingy person and I know if I wasn’t single, I’d spend a lot on my partner.
    Another thing is the low level of seriousness among most guys today (most are just f*ck boys), the ones that are taken would want one to be their side chic. Quite annoying & discouraging . ?
    Finally, being single keeps me away from fornication as well as makes me more focused on my goals in life.
    So Bella, that’s why I love being single! ?

    @ellenukpi Why I love being single:
    I am not single by choice but boy am i loving it! i would still love to be in a relationship but in the absence of one this lemon that life has given me of singleness am making some basmati rice with lemon sauce and a bit of lemon grilled fish on the side! i enjoy my masturdating days (read again and check it its not what you think and its a word in the urban dictionary for self dates) i have come to enjoy my company and be open to the fact that i can live a long and happy life without a love interest. It gets tiring at times but i love the game of getting to know people. Another love hate sport i like about being single is how aware i am of it! I mean some guy approaches or talks to you and immediately you start checking boxes if they can be a potential BAE or not lol. Being single is fun and i won’t trade these experiences in a hurry having a Bae should be fun too but hey what do i know i speak only for my experience.

    Hmmmmm why should a fine straight babe like me be single…
    So lets see as I have done lots of things and need to do more as I discovered my self worth. I know that future bae has to be proud of me when we eventually meet:) and continue together.

    Mostly got tired of guys saying I’m pretty and slim but acting silly on our first date or asking stupid questions
    Dear future bae, I promise to love you and only you, have 2 kids or adopt extra if we have the means as there are many kids out there who need shelter and love. Don’t worry will pester your mum to know what you like and learn how to cook them so you know tribe or culture is not a barrier

    I give a good massage too, so R&R Luxury would continue after signing dotted lines 🙂 Note my legs would be in twisted in 2 strands till after church tinz

    Please let me win this as the last thing I ever won was scholarship in school and I need a big break. For those who have guts and humour for sliding in to Dms…….the handle is @sweetzababe…yeah its new

    I am happy to be single because I can be spontaneous. I can do whatever I like when I want without being restricted by anyone’s desires.
    My only responsibility is myself so I can work hard, play hard and still have time in between to reflect.
    I can also go on as many dates as possible till I find the right one. *winks*
    Most importantly, I can treat myself and go ahead to splurge on those shoes or bags because my hard earned money would eventually go on more important things later on. Ladies, you can relate!

  164. Eight years and counting

    February 10, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    So after successfully dating or having two guys I could consider as ‘boyfriends’ in Secondary school….i was ready to take University by storm…..Boys were going to be flocking like bees to honey (with a body Kim Kardashian would kill to have) my confidence level was 100/10.
    First year october rush came by with guys that were either confused about what they were even doing in Uni or didnt have direction and were plainly looking for “ass” did i forget to mention my all-time crush forgot my birthday( some days after his and i spent 11k on perfume- it still pains me!!!)
    2nd year didnt get any better same old story
    3rd year was at the point of settling for anything as long as i could call myself someone’s girlfriend…….the snap back to reality was between my friend who her boyfriend of 5yrs broke the news to her he was getting married the next week and the one who realised that her boyfriend has lied to her about everything “down to the colour of his boxers”
    4th year was I.T. season was gonna position myself to catch “Lagos Men”(breath of fresh air from all dem small boys)…..how wrong i was…..with the one that insisted i stopped wearing makeup …em NO!!!!……to the one that was looking for glorified housemaid!!!
    5th year was all about the book…must graduate with 2.1 as the hope of 1st class was dashed after those carry overs in 3rd year *sobs*
    I found love!!!….The bone of my bones or rather bone of his bones…..whatever…head and tail is it didnt work out (miscommunication on our part…i wanted it, i thought he didnt, He wanted it , he thought i didnt)

    Fastforward to 8 years later, here I am ….single and free, waiting for the person that would come and pluck the flower from the ********compound……lol….

    The whole point of the essay is you should be declaring me the winner already…….

    Did i think I had a problem? Absolutely Yes, maybe i wasnt as hot as i thought, maybe i wasnt babe material, even heard the “you are wife material, i still wanna play around excuse”

    A couple of wild nights on the town, nights in bed crying and asking God what I have done wrong, periods of hating men, periods of thanking God for being single when i hear some women’s stories and some of the things I see on Bellanaija……I am fine.

    I am single and free with a wealth of Knowledge about being single ( I can write a book), I am patiently waiting for that man that would write the first note in the chapter of what would be my love story.

    Pick me…..

    I love being single because in my two years of being single, i have been able to discover myself. The two years has been like an eye opener of some sort for me, i have gone through depression, self doubt, envy, a lot of nights i have soaked my pillow with tears, loneliness and i sometimes throw myself a pity party 🙂 then one day i woke up and decided to become grateful for the things i had, believe God and just go with the flow. so i surrounded myself with beautiful people, inspirational books, Prayers and Fun activities. Now, my current situation(singledom) doesn’t bother me so much and i am stronger emotionally, spiritually and just living each day as it comes.

    I love being single because- I used to be sad looking at many of my friends happily married with at least one child, not that I wasn’t happy for them but I was like “Lord how far with me o!”. But now I know we are all running different races, I see this time as a time to LOVE myself more, improve on me, achieve all those beautiful goals while waiting for God’s best for me! I have therefore learnt to love every stage i’m at!

    I hate being single! In fact, I absolutely detest the fact that I do not have someone to freak the hell out with my craziness. Midnight calls, sulking over cramps, cuddles (loads of it) PDA, Netflix & Chill, road rage, food adventure; I can go on and on… It’s like how can all this crazy just go to waste! *shrugging shoulders* It gets worse when all I hear from friends, family and colleagues are prayers of “this year will not pass you by in Jesus name”. The most shocking of all was when a friend called a group of mutual friends for an intervention over me being “single”. Their concerns were overt; “how in the world are you still single? Are you sure you’re not being too picky?” Yeah, highlight of the past 4 years since the ex!

    Don’t get me wrong, I know the concerns may be coming from a good place, but I’m sick and tired of repetitive inquests because it’s robbing me of falling in love with me! You see, the best version of single is loving yourself enough! If you do not love you, who would? So as much as I hate being single, it’s allowed me time to work on me. I read somewhere once that before you draw up your list of specifications for a “would be” bae, be damn well sure you also fit the right version of “bae” for “bae” (lol). So I’ve had time to love me and make changes for me! Heck, bae’s gonna have one hell of a time explaining why he took so long when he get here! *winks*

    #BellaIsMyBae I love being single because I have my ‘ME” time always, which allows me to build up my character in order to be a blessing to my future husband, it enables me to enjoy d money I worked for, have savings without spending it on my bae or giving him acct of my spending, being a working class lady, being single enables me to do things I really love to do by myself, it also saves me from being hurt or broken hearted by the one I love, it frees me from worries of what my bae is up to wit another lady, it relieves me of stress because I don’t have to share my time wit bae, i get to serve God well, attend church activities, participate in church activities, I get to spend quality time with my family, friends, hang out alone without being questioned on my where about and what time i’ll be coming back and sleep for long hours because I have the time to. it enables me further my studies and make good grades because I have no distractions, I don’t have to be absent at work or go late to work because I have a bae that needs my time, thereby building my career. being single makes me FREE,HAPPY AND AT PEACE. Thank you.

    Am happy to be single cos this time has given me room to discover myself, spiritually, physically and morally. it gives me so much joy to have waited and discover God’s plans for me, if i have gotten married the marriage would av been a mess cos i knw myself(a stubborn and full of pride kind of a person).
    Av been able to climb the stairs of success in my career all alone (but with God by side). Now i surround myself with people that makes me happy and live by the word “live and let others live”

    I am happy being single for the very little things- I can go for weeks unending without having to shave the hairs on my private areas and no one would give a hoot, terrible I know! I can afford to stack the dishes in the sink and wash them during the weekend and no one would give me that quizzical look of ‘what kind of lazy woman did I marry’? On my lazy days, with every consciousness, I smile and stay in bed without having a shower because I’ve got no one to answer to. I know I would marry soon but until then, let me enjoy the luxury of staying glued to the TV all weekend ,cooking nothing but noodles and boiled egg. And here’s the best part, I get to toss and sleep with my legs spread out. The space and freedom is all mine!
    I am she!!!

    Nice giveaway idea Bellanaija, but I will be lying to you if I said I love being Single. I don’t. I am over 27 now and I feel like there is something wrong with me because I have been single for about 4years now. I know happiness should be derived from within, but bruh, with the harshness of life and not being a trust fund baby and having to deal with work and responsibilities of family, it will not be bad if one even has someone special to share all the highs and lows of ones life with. It feels great sometimes to not have to deal with the stress that comes with dating and being able to focus on work and life in general, but I really do not like being single. Everyone needs someone.

    But I will hear it because I’m not a side chic thinking I am a main chic.
    I will hear it because the material for my #AsoEbiBella hasnt reached the market yet. 
    I will hear sef because Bobo just mumbled a prayer to God that he should find me soon.

    I DON’T love being single Bella Naija and I’m not going to lie about that to win something for a day I should be celebrating with a loved one. I’ve been single for so long after two major heartaches and all I can pray for in this heightened season of love is to be loved and to love someone even more than myself. I have so much love inside of me and can’t wait to share it with someone who’s equally crazy about me.
    So there, I don’t love being single. I wouldn’t mind the gifts though…. especially the pamper package…….. a girl’s gotta give herself some good old loving sometimes if no one else will.

    I love being single because marriage is a life long thing. Once you actually marry right, you remain married for life and that is going to constitute most of one’s life so I feel i might as well enjoy myself and make the best of my life as a single, use the time I have for myself to build myself and be well grounded for the future. In marriage you have to split your time for the family, especially as a woman, no more ‘me, myself and I time’. I’m single only for a little while so let me hustle and just build my network, make friends, turn up with them, grow spiritually. I have been single for a long time now and I just like it even though simetimes i wish for a bae when something bad happens, someone to talk to but most times it doesn’t bother me. I really don’t admire the heartache, infidelity drama, trust issues, crying to bed thing. Naaa! I’m a female.

    I remember back in my university days the valentine frenzy, gifts, cakes, big teddy’s, cars moving in and out of campus. I’ve never had to spend valentine with anyone. Somehow these wayo boyfriends of mine break up with me b4 then lol. So I spend it hanging out with single girlfriends or visiting a motherless babies home to console myself (lol) and remind myself there’s more to life than Feb 14th. Eventually years later I spent my first and only valentine with my then boyfriend (YaY!!!!). Fast forward 2016, I’m going to spend THIS valentine alone and I couldn’t be bothered cos I look back at the ONE valentine and realized there was nothing really special about it. Sooo I love being single because
    1. I don’t have to worry about late periods and stds.
    2. I don’t have to explain to my BAE why I travel often to visit friend in other towns.
    3. I enjoy my peace of mind, no emotional trauma, no quarrels,no struggling to keep a man. (I’m in my mid thirties and that struggling ship has sailed) lol
    4. I eat whatever I like whenever I like, I can starve if I want to.
    5. I can take calls from whoever whenever.
    6. I’m more committed to being closer to God.
    7. I devote most of my time with my aged parents.
    8. I haven’t yet met that one person that is my soul mate.
    9. I’m concentrated on developing my self and mind in every ramification
    10.Most importantly I love being single because I know being in a relationship doesn’t define my person.
    Ohh I forget to mention that I’m a female.

Hoe does being in a relationship restrict ur freedom and purauit of other great things…. or is it cos of all the luxuries being offered… Being single or in relationship shouldnt disrupt your plans if you have any…. its ur life, live it. By the way BellaI wouldnt mind some lil luxury, whether in a relationship or not, I always choose to be happy, because the joy of the Lord is my strenght…lool

I have being able to achieve a lot in terms of my career and as much as it is cool to have boo rubbing ur back or helping you arrange for your car to be fixed. I’ have learnt growth and purpose and I have been able to laugh and live each day even without a guy. I have learnt to be confident of myself regardless of having a boo to validate my sense of self esteem. Omo the story plenty ooh but in short I dey happy to be single and Even though I shed a few tears at night(side eyes) I’m grateful to be single until boo aka fine boy and knight In shinning armour with six packs comes and arrests my heart hehehe then story go change.

    I love being single not because I get to discover myself blabla… Discovering and loving myself is something i do everyday regardless of my companionship status. I love being single because that’s just how i’ve found myself right now. SINGLE! and I don’t want to hate my status. Hating is very stressful. So i’ve chosen to love it while it lasts, and when it changes i love the new status too. like that. Love all the wayyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!

    I love being single because it is a moment of freedom – to make my own choices and decisions. A moment that will define my real values.
    It is a moment to do what I want to do, how I want to do it – nobody questioning me.
    It is a moment of personal development without any form of distraction.

    It is a moment to culture myself for a wonderful married life.
    It is a moment to know, love and nurture “ME”.
    It is a moment to create the “PERFECT” me that will face tomorrow’s challenges

    I love been single because who love don help??…d tin called rlship is tiring joor. i dont even know how to describe it…lost for words. i have played by the rules, played by the ‘elderly advises’, played by the ‘experienced advises’, played by ‘Being myself”, played by prayers, yet, i don do everything oo but still get hurt. Even after this men i date say that i am homely, wife material full yards(100) etc. Still i am still here all alone… Now, i no longer know what love is not to talk of true love.. i am just scared i might end up marrying a man just for fulfilling marital sakes, bear me a child and at the long run live my own life single even when married.

    I’m happy to be single because it’s a period of self discovery, no palpitations and a just a time of general peace and calm.

    I love being single because it gives room to discover myself and all the beauty I possess. I have seen versions of me I wasn’t particularly sure existed; I have passed through the hardest times and the lioness in me has been a faithful shoulder.
    The consciousness that being single is a temporary phase, makes me cherish it jealously because I know I might not get to experience it again and live as selfishly as it affords me now.

    I Am Female.

    Not bashing all the happy single people out there but I honestly don’t think you have to be single to “discover” yourself or build a relationship with God or have pure sanity. When you have a partner, they act as an additional support system, In joint effort,you help each other become better individuals and most importantly you both build a stronger relationship with GOD. You both appreciate each other ALL day everyday. You both make sacrifices to make the relationship work. That’s what falling in love and staying deeply in love is all about.

    I do not love being single but it has indeed helped me understand the true meaning of commitment, of sacrificing, of being humble, of loving everyone and everything around me. I plan to spend the day with my AMAZING daughter. Winning this will most certainly make her day.

    I love being single because it is a moment of freedom – to make my own choices and decisions. A moment that will define my real values.
    It is a moment to do what I want to do, how I want to do it – nobody questioning me.
    It is a moment of personal development without any form of distraction.

    It is a moment to culture myself for a wonderful married life.
    It is a moment to know, love and nurture “ME”.
    It is a moment to create the “PERFECT” me that will face tomorrow’s challenges and win.

    It is a moment to deepen my relationship with my creator – a relationship that will beautify my relationship with my future husband and children

    A moment to cherish – a moment that will only come once in my lifetime.

    I am Completely Female
    I love being single because I have me all to myself; all my awesome naughtiness is mine alone and I have no reason to be responsible.

    My spicy inner scent I can dispense at any time T and get high on it alone.

    I can go out looking cutely untidy and I wouldn’t mind, Prince charming’s car is still Odikwa high sea, he is not on his way to my house so he will not see me.

    I can dream, of fairy tale weddings and out-of-this-world proposal stunt with a smile on my face because my time will still come. #WEDMAGAZINE20?? #OluwaProvideTheDateO.

    I can spend all my money on me and my family, no bae so no bae’s birthday present or his parents wedding anniversary present or buying handbag for his sister e.t.c Balogun market straight #NoIronu-No thinking. Plus in this valentine season no buying Bae valentine gift fa.

    I can enjoy my glorious monkeyness – My body hair. I don’t have to shave for months and nobody’s universe will be traumatised.

    With this few points of mine, I hope I have been able to convince you and confuse myself that I am happy to be single.

    Currently me being single am happy over it because the sickness that goes with being in a relationship isn’t present e.g thinking about your bae, how to call her, how to get her a gift etc
    I don’t have to start killing myself of thinking of what i want to do just to win her heart of which at the end even if i do the needful, how am i sure that i have ended up putting a smile on her face or actually won her heart cause most girls if not all are actually good at faking moods or character. They might not like anything you do for them but just because they don’t you to know they just fake a smile or happiness for you.
    I love being single because relationship wise am not just fully prepared for it now so i can’t start what i know i can’t finish because am still on my mother’s back and as you know one who is being back can’t back someone else.

    I love being single because when I thought I needed someone else’s validation to feel good, I found self love and been on a self discovery journey that I so much know who I am now. Being single made me realise that God alone is sufficient for me and also to know how a potiential bae will treat what I consider the most sensitive part of a house……the toilet. Cos I wont leave trash for lawma if bae has a bad toilet habit.

    Love being single mainly because I get to work on myself and get better with time in all aspects, also because i don’t have to spend money too much on credit to be calling bae (I can save) and I don’t have to do plenty work to make sure bae is happy meaning that I won’t have to worry about loosing bae. I don’t have to impress bae. Let me do my thing and get better with focus. Being single won’t last for long or forever (soon now I will be on bellanaija …Lol) so I will as well enjoy and love it.

    Is not that i want to be single oo it just happened that i have always been the messenger of love on valentine’s day,( i am always delivering gifts at the door steps or my colleagues table) and now that i am still single. i think i cannot give up my me this, me that-life, My friend haf’ tired for me sef, they meet their husbands through me but i am single…. anyways why i am single is that sometimes i want to travel and explore, go and hide myself some place and stay by the water or swim till i drop, not been touched by that masculine fingers…(weird right?) but i just dont want any touch i want to do things my way and how i feel.
    Whereas in relationship i am a puppy i give alot more, i am humble, i stop the clock for my man, but they think i am a dummy, they cheat on me and tell me that i caught u with a guy. But innocent me will be thinking of something else no more of that, now i watch and laugh.
    In conclusion i will be single and waiting grooming myself, adding value(career,physical,spiritual,financial), sleep well enjoy single-sim till i am whisked away with responsibilities.

    I’m happy being single for now because of my past experiences with an ex whom I was head over heels for but later find out he had impregnated another while we were still dating, I was depress because I felt Betrayed and that lesson of heartbreak has thought me to be more focus on improving myself, being more independent and less worries on matters of the heart and loving my new self as a single lady.

Above all, I have grown spiritually, learning to love me and stay in line with God’s plan for me. I have also had time to cultivate the most beautiful and healthy friendships that I have come to cherish. Plus, I get to have my pillows and duvet all to myself when I need a good night’s rest. #Winks

    I always thought being single was like being a failure or something. But I have been single for over 4 years and its been an interesting journey. I have learnt to LOVE ME. I am no longer the desperate girl who kept trying to make a relationship work by all means even when the guy was obviously not interested. I am no longer the foolish girl who spends so much money furnishing a man’s house and buying him perfumes, clothing and gadgets instead of investing those huge sums in a fixed deposit account. Lol. I have learnt that i deserve the best and love cannot be forced. I am taking each day at a time, learning to become that woman that will add value to the man i end up with and i have learnt that a broken relationship is better than a broken marriage. Being single has made me grow, become more prayerful and I can raise my head proudly now to say I will be a valuable wife with the help of God and my wife material is over 1,000,000 yards now. Lol.. I am thankful that am single because I have learnt to be patient and i have come to understand that God makes all things beautiful in his time and I should never compare my life with anyone else because we are all running our individual races.
    Between I don’t live in Lagos but I thought i should drop this epistle. Lol

    Let me tell you about this Love I have for being single… It all started from the last drop of tears from watching the Notebook for the 100th time, recalling all the time I invested in him. I walked to my mirror that day and tried to make out my curves, the ones that had now filled out as a result in part to all the times I had to cancel going to the gym just to Facetime him, thanks to time difference. Now he was trying to get me back listing the reasons I was a blessing to him while dating, but enough! I took out my vibrator, laid on my bed and decided it was my turn. I was now going to be a blessing to my self, to my body. 2 yrs strong and I understand so much more about myself, I laugh too loud, I can stand to work on my discipline, I love to dance on my own, in my room, I’d rather watch movies alone because I give my commentaries too loud (try it it’s way more fun), I’d tour the world if i’m not married by 34 and adopt when i’m back…. Wait! Wait a hot minute! Don’t you know for sure that you love someone when you start planning a future with them in mind? Uhhh, okay I might be moving too fast with plans on engaging my life single, but two things I know for sure is I’m definitely open to marrying the idea and I really, really love being single.

    I love being single because……. A Gazillion reasons!
    I’m female.
    Don’t get me wrong, it’s lovely to have someone in your life to share special moments, affection, sexy time and all that with. I’ve had that and I won’t deny how great it can be.But I also had some unfulfilling relationships where I was lonely and sad. Right now I’m single and loving it. My reasons are:
    1. Freedom!! Freedom is not overrated people! Being free to have fun, impromptu trips, staying out late without having to check in, eating what & where I like, going on dates, celebrating with male/female friends, having crazy friends you can just be real with, are the stuff single days are made of. One ex apparently felt his duties included scrutinizing ALL my friends. He used to say women were prone to bad influences from friends.
    2. Seeing your monthly. Period. (pun intended) Without having to earnestly countdown/fast & pray/promise never to have sex again if only it would come.
    And need I mention not having to be a good sport in bed when you’re fatigued/don’t feel like it.
    3. I can play hooky from work/scheduled outings when I just need a break without anyone giving me that ‘inspirational, low-key judgemental pep talk’ (‘Just show up even when you don’t feel like it’, ‘Are you sure you don’t have other plans?’ ‘What are you going to be doing at home, ALL ALONE, all day?’!!)
    4. I don’t have to deal with his people i.e friends who may or may not be lousy/dislike you, in-laws.. 😉
    5. I don’t have to deal with someone else’s problems personally, from medical to financial to psychological. As women we naturally take on problems of our significant others. It just is. As a doctor, you can’t even unlook.
    6. I don’t have to worry about buying gifts for a guy at a time like this. Selecting gifts for a man is always A TASK (especially if you’re trying not to tow the line of singlet/boxers/car wipes. Again. The singlet & boxers in my defense, was eons ago. When I didn’t know better. The car wipes – I blame the bad influence of friends).
    Oh on this one, the downside is not ‘expecting’ any gifts!
    7. No one judges your clothes – Ok, except wellmeaning friends. There was this ex who would religiously add after inviting me somewhere..’Look hot and ravishing’. I never did ask him if I looked house-girlish on the rare date he forgot to include ‘look hot and ravishing’. As much as I wanted to.
    8. I can watch Keeping up with the Karsashians/House of Cards all Saturday if I wanted, without looking like an NFA/anyone feeling ignored.
    9. I don’t worry anymore that I’m settling. Or missing out on life.
    10. The God factor… I came to trust wholly in God after a messy, drawn out divorce. I realised no man was coming to save me or rescue me. It was totally up to me to remain a mess or come out a victor. From that unwanted singleness thrust upon me, I had no option than to find God myself. Lean on Him. Trust in Him. And come through He did for me. From the will to live again, to setting seemingly impossible goals, to witnessing them come to pass…He was with me at every step. Miracles do exist!!
    And now I get to focus on myself. Not that you neglect your responsibilities, but with singleness your energy, time, and resources are yours to spend on the most important person in your life – YOU!
    Sorry for the long post, just had to share…

    I enjoy been single, atleast for now. It is great been single, when you live it well while it last (except you’ve chosen to remain so for life. Not me). I’ve been able to do a bit of travelling and I want to do more of it without been disturbed with calls from bae; my mom does miss me though. Been free from emotional attachment at this time of my life is a blessing in disguise, I’m starting my life afresh and living each day as it comes.
    I’ve made mistakes in the past and I came to realise my usefulness to Humanity, so I have decided to do as much as I can while alive (single or not). Cherishing myself as a whole and maximising my capability to the good of all, it’s my desire of all.
    Its a beautiful process to been the woman I meant to be. My Free time is for personal development. I’ve been able to meet different kind of people and have fun at every opportunity I get. Life no get duplicate o.
    I’m female with dreams to be activated. Love yourself enough to love others. God is Love. Olori 9ja on twitter or BBM – pin:2BC07481
    Thanks Bellanaija and Aso-ebi for this opportunity. Like you know my mind going through all the post on your website. I was wondering which of the valentine offer I could grab o LOL, no partner. Day Dreaming things o. All the best to the winners. Would really love to win any of the treats.

I get to have a “me” time which I can’t have if I’m not single cos my partner might want to talk at that moment. I guess that’s most of it

I love Singlehood because it’s a decision to Love myself, understand my flaws, build my strengths and create my future. From the depth of my heart I cherish these moment while it last but when he finally finds me the memories will forever remain.

    I love being single right now because I haven’t been found by that “One” whom I can’t live without. I’m one of those girls who still believes in Fairy-tales and Prince Charming and all them mushy stuff! Yeah, roll your eyes at me if you like!! Until He comes, am gonna enjoy loving the ‘new me OS’ that gets an everyday upgrade :-). I’ll get to spend more time pursuing and exploring my areas of interests, building my career and personal brand, and generally having fun. I’ve come too far to settle for anything less than the best. I also get to spend more time with my 6 years old nephew who considers me his “best bug” (what an honour! ). At least I don’t have to worry my pretty head wondering if my Lil boo gat a boo :-). So until True Love finds me, #Bellaismybae. IG: @hrm_adeolav

    I love being single because:
    1. I use #100 airtime in a month.
    2. I can scope and mingle with fine boys die without cheating obviously.
    3. I can like to wear my old slacked pants .
    4. I don’t have any bae to have to deal with my regular mood swings and challenges.
    5. I can give Bella Naija my full attention.
    6. I use the opportunity to prepare myself seriously for the next relationship. Team proverbs 31 woman.
    We all deserve to be happy regardless, life is short.

    I love being single because….wait! I didn’t always love being single ohhh. Never been val’d (and no you can’t count that moment in primary 3 when I was given a nail cutter by a fellow classmate lol). What was the point of having a figure to die for, a pretty face, an intelligent persona and a naughty overactive imagination when I didn’t have anyone to share it with? Now I am in my late twenties now and while it still bothers me occasionally I definitely don’t want a story that touches the heart or to be on Page 6 or is it 7 of Punch! I am learning and loving myself, enjoying my Florence and the Machine, watching anime when I don’t have to write legal opinions and draft agreements, reading my Bible in the 2 hours of traffic to get to work and 2 hours to get back home, spending my remaining time with friends (after the vampirish job has sucked the blood out of my social life) etc!
    I love being single because I have really been able to invest in myself and when the right person comes along I hope and think he will be appreciative. Plus (tongue in cheek) with all these activities I don’t have the energy to get into relationship wahala (but, if the right person comes along ha, heck yes you’ll see, speedy gonzales won’t have nothing on me.

    I love being single ‘cos really isnt it the best state to be when future hubby finds you?

    I mean who wants the hassles of disentangling from a clingy “no road” boyfriend when Mr Right strolls in?

    Not convinced? Give me a minute.

    Okay picture this… You’re at a wedding.. the suave best man saunters towards you and compliments your dress.
    The chocolate melting quality of his voice weakens your knees but as a correct babe, you shrug nonchalantly and point out that the other bridesmaids are dressed in the same attire.

    “Are they?” He asks, his eyes remain fixed on yours as though he couldnt be bothered to look at the other ladies.

    His witty rejoinder makes you smile cos you love witty guys.
    He moves closer and you want to melt into the paradise the fragrance of his perfume creates.
    His hands on the small of your back has you purring like a pampered kitten.

    Just as he leans in to do Godknowswhat (kiss you hopefully), your lumbering ass of a boyfriend (who you have been to lazy to break up with) cuts in “Swithat the jollof rice yaff finish”

    Now aren’t you happy to be single too?

    I love being single because it gives me opportunity to discover myself, build myself and develop an appreciation for myself that is not dependent on a man. I have the opportunity to be comfortable in my skin. Also I don’t have the extra baggage that comes with being in a relationship or being married therefore I have the time to build and grow my dream of making a positive difference in the Legal Sector in Nigeria #Believe #ChangeWillCome #BellaIsMyBae…ForNow loooolll

    I am happy to be single simply because; being single, i found myself. I was constantly in the search for happiness and satisfaction, thereby jumping from one relationship to the other in search of the optimal joy. The moment i became single; with no worries abt expectations, the other person’s view of me, being the perfect person for someone, i started being perfect for me. Being single, i can travel to a destination of my choice alone, watch a movie of my choice, eat at a restaurant of my choice, read as many books of my choice and many more things of my choice. Basically, everything fun and lively is all my choice now, you have no idea how much of that happiness derived from all those things end up being for me. I have never been happier,
    falling in love with myself and exploring all the thousand shades of me, utmost happiness.

    I love being single because I can treasure the remaining time I can be 100% selfish without thinking of what boo’s opinion is especially on food matters.
    Being single makes me cook whatever and how I like at home without considering someone else like making my spicy foods just the way I love them. I don’t have to change my mind on my food choice because boo wants Spanish bread and Eritrean egg casserole for breakfast while I will rather have pounded yam, afang soup with cow leg. Time is too precious to consider both, one of us will have to compromise. I love homemade food and my food choices are weird so before boo comes all up in my food space, I will still love being single.

    I love being single because my heart doesn’t skip when my monthly period delays
    I can wear grandma panties anytime!
    I don’t have to wear six inches heels, tight fitting dresses, long weaves and make up always ( my ex loves it)
    I am free to hangout with my friends without having to send pictures and chatting with Le boo to convince him of my whereabouts.
    I can read my romance novels and watch romantic movies while sucking my thumb without distractions.
    I don’t have to cook, clean or burst the pimples on his back!
    I don’t have to wear ear plugs to sleep anymore ( Le boo can snore for Africa)
    I am free to live, cry and face life without relying on someone other than God to validate me.
    I love being single for now until my knight in shinning armor arrives……..

    I love being single because I don’t have to cope with his lying friends who know full well I’m just one out of his many girlfriends,yet still call me “iyawo wa” especially the “yoruba demons”.The ones Mama Yemisi used to warn me about .Being single,you don’t have to worry about working with “equipments”.The small ones task your brain more because you have to be careful with your words and not deflate his ego.Do you ask him,”where is the rest of it or it’s ok,we’ll work around it”.I love being single not because I don’t miss cuddling up to him in bed but because I love to lie in the middle in a star-fish style.I can go home,turn on the tv and listen to women scream about equal rights and how sexist men are or a beyonce’s “who run the world” playing in the background.And nothing kills a night when he calls you at 1am asking where you are#side eyes. Being in a relationship means dealing with somebody else’s when you have yours to contend with.Abeg,its enough that one has to deal with the prevailing economic situation.I know why I’m still single: my Parents-in-law were unable to have children! Being single dosnt mean you’re available.sometimes,you just have to put a “DO NOT DISTURB” sign on your heart.just because I’m single doesn’t mean I aint good for anyone.it just means no one is good enough for me yet. I love being single when I can remove the password on my phone.how many passwords do I have to keep up with? social media accounts,emails etc. You get to be single for a long time and get too comfy so much that you begin to think,(in Azadus’s voice)”YOU is the one”.My biological clock doesn’t worry me.When peole bring it up,I just laugh.The only reason I ever check the clock is to know how many more drinks I can have before happy hour is over #bellaIsMyBae

    I love being single because I can drool over Chris Hemsworth’s blue eyes, be smitten with Usher or Jason Derulo’s great voice, obsess over Idris Elba’s ever changing accents and his great, amazing body, and imagine someday meeting them and getting together with them, without being guilt stricken about cheating on my boyfriend/spouse -well, in my head. I can also let my raw, passionate, lewd thoughts run wild each time I see that super sexy dude that lives next door. Yeeees, I can do that!
    Again, you remember that old, worn-out but comfortable pyjamas you’ve had since your late teens and love because it’s cotton, pink, and has cute, adorable barbie dolls on it but can’t wear because your significant other thinks you’re way sexier in some tight, uncomfortable, red lingerie? Yea, well, I still wear mine, every night, I should add, till it gets dirty and I have to wash it. You know why? Because I am single!!!! And oh, I can snore, turn and toss all night long or as much as I please without the fear of being an embarrassment to anyone!
    Then, I think all that time you spend getting dolled up – you know, taking time with your make-up, wearing those nice red heels and the short black dress, the whole nine yards- whenever you’re going to the movies with a few friends or going to the mall to do some shopping is a waste if you’re already hooked. It’s fun and all if that tall, handsome dude with the deep, baritone voice that you’ve imagined all your life strikes up a conversation with you at the mall, but where does that lead when you already have someone waiting for you at home or someplace? Wouldn’t you rather flirt and exchange numbers with this one? Guess what? I can do that cos I’m single!!!
    Plus, there’s just this exhilarating feeling you get knowing that tomorrow you’ll probably meet a better looking man than the one you met yesterday. I mean, who needs this fish when you can get a bigger one? I am female and I like men!

    I love being single because it keeps me away from pre-marital sex, till I meet the right one. So one does not have sex on saturday and go to church on sunday praying, singing loud praises and wondering if God is listening cos you sinned the day before and perhaps called his name while you were at it. Besides, that bed I see is perfect for one. After all the massage and all, I ll love to sleep in peace and spread my legs. Certainly freebies like this make me love being single 🙂 #bellaisbae

    I love being single because it saves me airtime, data and unnecessary explanations; Amongst other things, my last relationship cost me 11 months, N36,000 worth of call credit and 90GB data.
    I don’t have to deal with boring phone calls like ‘…so what did you eat this afternoon?’ ‘…go and find something to eat’
    Peace of mind with God. I don’t have to backslide every time we spend the night and beg God for salvation the morning after.
    No heart attack when my period is late & the certainty that an irritation down there is from a public toilet and not STD.
    I don’t have to explain to anyone on days by BBM DP is like Mr Universe slideshow.
    I love my granny undies. I don’t have to endure those uncomfortable g-strings to please anyone.
    I get to stay ugly in peace. No one judges me for not waxing my legs and rearing an evil forest…down there.

(You fit selfish gan when there is no bae).

    So I have been Single but not searching (but might just be ready to mingle though) since I found out that my boo had a boo!

    Here’s my top 5 reasons why I’m very happy to be single

    1. I get to spend ALL my money on me, myself and I, whenever and however I choose to. If I want to buy designer shoe and bag, to match sef, e no consign you!
    2. I have all this free time (me time) to do whatever I want to do, whenever I feel like doing it and however it pleases me too. No need to rub pancake and ruby woo and force myself to go out when all I really want to do is stay indoors and catch up on CSI, Tinsel, SpongeBob (for the kid in me o!) or watch AMOF back to back on AfricaMAgic or even be a bum and lay all day in bed.
    3. They say variety is the spice of life. Yea, I can be talking to/hanging out/dating 7 guys at a time if I want to. No monitoring spirit/jealous boyfriend/partner/lover/significant other to be following me jor. Infact one guy for each day for the week na But I sha have to master the fine art of juggling (hmmm tips anyone?)
    4. I don’t have to listen to any boyfriend/partner/lover/significant other moan and whine about their issues/day/work/life etc especially when I have equally had a long tiring day. After all if I vent my own now, I will be called a nag ba?
    5. I don’t have to think about said boyfriend/partner/lover/significant other first before making any major decisions that concerns me.

    So in conclusion

    Be Smart, Be Like Bimbo, Be Single

A girl could do a lot with some extra cash, y’know what I’m sayin’? Lol. To this end, lemme go and post the image. Bella, you have to give me this money o. That money is screaming my name.

    Am very happy been a single lady, work class, and an entrepreneur,
    It has helped me to be more focus in life and very in dependable,
    I wish i could share my stories to all single ladies out there, that you don’t have to depend on any man or sleep around to get what you want and or desire.
    I discovered this inner qualities when I ask men for financial help, they all want to sleep with me, I said to myself how many men do i have to sleep with before marriage, so i tried to focus on my job and establish a personal business for myself, now i have 7 staff working under me.
    I give God thanks for that.

    well i am happy to be single because i am learning a lot. oh well, i am building myself. i have learnt from my previous relationships, been single gives me so much space and time to reflect on my mistakes, to read, listen and watch corrective approaches so that potential bae will be forever bae, lol, but really i started dating at age 14 and i knew nothing about love or feelings, i was just drunk in looovvveee. lol. it lasted for yearsss, i didnt know myself or understood the kind of person i was, i guess been single is helping me grow, mentally, spiritually, academically and financially. Trust me, i could steal to by a gift for bae but now let me make so much to spoil bae. I love like a child, i can give my head to bae, been single just makes me wiser, knowing God and asking him for directions. focusing on my business and the fact that i dont want to be a liability. i prefer friendship and lots of laughter, i just want to be happy ojare.

  302. Tosinfunmi

    February 11, 2016 at 11:54 am

    I love being single because…….
    1) At the top of the list of reasons being single is great is the fact that you can be ugly whenever you want. You don’t have to put on makeup or style your hair all the time. Gone are the days when you have to worry that he’ll show up without calling and find you not looking your best. You can be as ugly as you want to be without judgment.

    2)When you are single you can sleep in the middle of the bed without any worry of being called a #bed hog. You can wrap yourself up in a burrito with the blankets and never hear how you stole all the covers and he was freezing. It’s all yours now! Lol …

    3) I hate it when I want to watch a movie and my boyfriend wants to watch sports? Guess what! I don’t have to deal with that anymore! Yay! I can watch whatever I want at any time I want and never once have to worry that anyone will come into my living room and change the channel when I leave the room.

    4 )When will you be home?” is above and beyond the most annoying question; especially, if I made plans to spend time with my family and he knows it. I used to have a #boyfriend that would call me every hour on the hour to see when I was coming home. Yes, he was cheating, and yes he did need to know so he wouldn’t get caught.

    And the reasons goes on and on…

    Thanks BellaNaija for this platform. Love you

    with more than 2 decades experience in singleness’, i am most qualified to tell you why being single is not as bad as it sounds. First of all I actually get to be truly independent, in control of my time, my funds! , how my space looks, i can eat junk all day without anyone questioning you, I literally dont have a curfew and its fun having people argue about how cute you and insist you must have a bae. i am not forced to like manu or chelsea #ARSENALFORLIFE or have someone wake me up at night because he wants eba. Plus its fun when all my friends are trying to diagnose the cause of my #foreveralone status when infact im just busy catching cruise, having fun and training myself to be valuable to whoever earns me #trophywife to be

    February 11, 2016 at 12:25 pm

    i love being single because i dont have anyone bug me when my phone rings or me getting jealous whenever his phone rings. i can watch mtv or telemundo all day without somebodys son squeezing his face because its not espn. I can put my hair on any style and put antype of makeup on without bae saying he likes my i-woke-up-like-this face and my hair in ‘didi’. i am inspired to work hard, take care of myself for me and serve the lord while i still have time. Biko im not saying this singleness is for life o just saying im enjoying it while it lasts.

    February 11, 2016 at 12:53 pm

    So, why do i love been single,
    Judging by my past relationships, I actually love my current situation, I go the parties when i want to, I woke up late on weekends, I watched movies with potential boo’s in the making without strings. I am presently having a great fun.
    Relationships for me are like ties, ‘the constant inability to focus and thinking about him’ can be nauseating and even the thought of where ‘this may or may not lead to’ can be annoying. Society’s thought ‘that relationship should end as a wedding’ makes me nervous. Mostly make me view ex boo’s as ‘to be husband’.
    Even though i know this situation is temporary, I am going to enjoy every bit of it.

    Tomorrow Friday: I have a date after work.
    Saturday: i will start the day with a healthy breakfast, mid day swimming with a friend, then lunch with a wannabe boo, Karaoke at night with a friend
    Sunday: Church, collect val gift from another wannabe boo, val party with fellow single friends and we’ll rock all night.

    Most don’t like the idea of single’s having fun… but for me now, I love where i am.

    I love being single because I don’t have to cook fresh food for anybody. All the men out there that demand fresh food. Here’s my valentines day WAKA to you. IF YOU WANT FRESH FOOD, COOK IT YOURSELF!!

    PEACE OF MIND :I have peace of mind ,at least I can sleep without one eye open at night. You can’t put a price on that kind of peace of mind. Some guy make your worry too much .

    EAT WHAT YOU WANT :pound yam and egusi soup for dinner? Sounds great. Left overs for breakfast? I don’t see why not. It’s not that I’m a fatty and refuse to eat healthy or “normal” foods at the “normal” time of day. But if I’m in a hurry or chose happy hour cocktails over the grocery store last night, no one is going to go hungry because I didn’t get their favorite cereal or wanted and extra 30 minutes of sleep. And by all means I don’t have to wake up extra early to make anyone breakfast. If I want to sleep in I can pick up something up on my way to work…or cross my fingers that a co-worker will be picking up breakfast kfc.

    THE BATHROOM IS MINE ALL MINE! That’s right. I said it! Toilet seat is down. Toilet paper is available. No gross man hair in the sink. Wet towels on the floor are nonexistent. Boxer flying around the floor . No one is complaining that my makeup, hair spray and other female toiletries men refuse to admit exist take up the majority of the counter/cabinet space (depending on your bathroom setup). Guys really don’t seem to realize how many things it takes to be girl: curling/flat iron, blow dryer, make up, hair products, feminine products, etc. We don’t wake up looking this fabulous. It takes time and money.

    SHOES SHOES SHOES As a single woman with a family (siblings to to provide for…). After spending my hard earned cash on my family and myself the spare money on (well any money that is left over after bills and that evil woman SSHOES! I don’t have to borrow my him money , anniversary presents, Christmas presents from “Santa”, Father’s Day gifts, impressive gifts for in-laws (IN-LAWS…that could be top reason in itself but I’ll just put it out there that I’m glad I don’t have any instead). I don’t have to feel guilty for more than just browsing on-line for those heels I know are going to hurt my feet. After a bad date…shoes are the best way to “heel” a broken hearts.

    SPONTANEITY You can do what you want, when you want, with who you want. There is no spouse that has to be taken into consideration. No one has to be put to bed. If going for happy hour cocktails sounds more appealing than grocery shopping-do it. Las minute weekend trip with friends-go for it. Sleeping til noon-why not? Job offer in Ghana and a good pay !of course I will gladly relocate from lagos! At the drop of my hat I can change my mind, and my plans without putting any man into consideration

    Now I’m not trying to man hate here. Who doesn’t want to love and be loved? I’ll even let you know that I myself am in a loving committed relationship with a wonderful man. We are taking the time to learn each other and ourselves. Marriage someday? Maybe. Divorce, definitely not. But until then I’m going to enjoy my freedom, bathroom and shoes!

    #bellaisbae. I’m female and honestly i appreciate all the comments even though everyone is saying the same thing. But I’m actually single because I haven’t found a reason to be hitched. Why must I date, why must I marry and please not the crap about having your own kids abeg! The world is already over populated, you can love another man’s child as much as your own. Please adopt and save little kids. Society has put so much emphasis on relationship that we no longer understand our even have reasons why we do it, we just know that it’s a norm. I don’t wanna be a part of the status quo, so when I find my reason I’ll find the best fit. It’s never the other way round!

    My reactions.

    “ALL you need to do is comment on this post and tell us why you’re happy to be single.”: Holdup they’re people actually happy to NOT be single?

    “This is open to anyone with a Nigerian bank account to get a prize of 50,000 Naira,”: ??????? Should have led with that.

    “The competition begins NOW and ends on social media and on this post tomorrow – on Thursday February 11 2016” *Peeps at desktop calendar*????”at Noon, Nigerian time.”…………??????????????????

    Why always me? I have the worst luck, I always miss these things.

    ???? I love being single because- here I am all by lonesome, jamming to Tom Petty doing awkward dances around the house, phone switched off. I won’t be nagged tomoroow about my whereaabouts or missed calls by somebody thinking they have a stake in my time. Come Sunday, after Mass, I’ll treat myself to all the junk food my 50kless lean purse can afford. Key word MYSELF, I’m selfish…….sue me.

    Hello? I know this came late knowing the competition has ended but I felt I needed to say something. No man is an island and in as much as people are saying they are happy single deep down they know they all want that special someone. We have all gone through challenges in life that has led us to want to be on our own and not deal with the stress of hurting as a result of another being, but I will say let it go and let love reing. I am single and content I am not in a rush because I know Gods time is perfect. I want someone that I can build a family with because I want that for myself. But as I “wait” for potential bae I am not only working on myself by getting a new job or exercising by body but I am most especially working on being the best mother and wife for my children and husband. This has to do with learning how to forgive, communicate better with people and God. So yes I am single and content but no man is an island. Thank you. God is love.

    Now as for why I used to love being single,was for the scare I get whenever I walk up to a pretty girl I thought I liked. That rollercoaster feeling of fear and thrill and all of the excess adrenaline. Bella can be bae to a lot of people Buh there’s just one bae for me @chee_nonye and d turtle is f**king slow I wish I had my chariot ready.

    Being single is tough but i’ve realized it takes a tougher person to weather the norms and wagging tongues of people who keep wondering why you’re still single. I have enjoyed being single because it’s made me tough, strengthened my character, made me responsible and helped me live a life of purpose, It’s also brought me closer to God.
