Being in a relationship has its pros and cons, but so does being single. Here, our GIRLTalkers share what they think about flying solo. 

I'm a bit sad since my classmates and friends were already getting married and some of them may mga babies na while I'm still alone. I don't know if there is someone out there [who] is really meant for me or baka naman wala talaga, pinapagod ko lang sarili ko. I've been through six relationships and I thought my last boyfriend would be the last relationship and then siya na kaso mukhang last na nga siya pero hindi siya. I'm quite frustrated na and keep asking myself what's wrong with me. – from GIRLTalker icantspell

Okay naman, it’s been three months na and so far, I’m getting better and better every day. Nagigising pa naman ako every morning, and I don't think may namamatay sa pagiging single, kung meron man eh choice na nila yun! Enjoy na lang while waiting for the right and destined one. – from GIRLTalker dumpee.o13 

Yes, I’m happy being single. It may sound like a cliché but it's just recently when I realized that I can be this happy even if I don’t have a boyfriend. I always thought that I'd be miserable if I was alone. I learned a lot of things about myself. – from GIRLTalker t_r_i_s_h  

I realized that being single now at my age is a bit tougher than when I was in my early 20s because of the pressure. I'm so far happy with my freedom but I can't help but be aware that my peers are getting married one after the other. – from GIRLTalker alexandrea  


I don't know why people keep on asking me if may boyfriend na ko. Hey, it's not something I can easily get from a store or from the street.– from GIRLTalker helga21 


Okay naman single life kaso lonely, parang sipon, pasulpot-sulpot. I know I'm not yet ready to be in a relationship so I just try to enjoy life, watch movies, koreanovelas and what not. Kinukulong ko sarili ko sa bahay hahaha. Working on a better version of myself. – from GIRLTalker inday101

Minsan nakakalungkot, nakaka-inggit pag may nakikita kang lovers na sweet. Nakaka-miss ma-inlove. So how do I handle it? By staying positive that I am as entitled to happiness as those lovers are. – from GIRLTalker galadriel  


Ini-
enjoy ko lang yung life ko ngayon. It's more of a "ME" time. Like they say, "Before you can be happy with someone, you should own your happiness first. Nothing is more attractive than a person who radiates contentment from within". Oh diba? – from GIRLTalker kikayhen 

Hindi naman ako pressured kahit single kasi I have a lot of other good things going in my life. I have friends na single din so parang di ko naiisip. Ayoko ipilit kung wala kasi waste of time din if you will have a relationship just for the sake of having one.  – from GIRLTalker Eureka1088 
 
Sometimes it makes me wonder bakit yung  gusto ko ayaw naman sa akin, yung may gusto sa akin, ayaw ko naman. Hindi naman sa pag iinarte or choosy kasi yan yung lagi nila sinasabi sa akin. – from GIRLTalker snowhite_12 

I am enjoying it! In my line of work, I meet a lot of people. Then it’s my clients pa nga who set me up with their colleagues or pamangkins. I've been single for more than a year already but I think I haven’t found the one yet. In fairness naman to the guys I meet, they all have good intentions and they’re looking for a steady relationship (except for one that turned into an obsessed psycho) but I’m just not ready yet. – from GIRLTalker sassa
