But there is very little support given to those who are consciously choosing to spend time alone, learning to enjoy their own company and the creativity it sparks.There is almost a sense of failure or that there is something wrong with un-partnered people, which is really quite ridiculous, especially since more and more people are realizing that the partnerships they formed early in life have failed to pass the tests of time, and they themselves are now living the single life. The worst thing you can do is panic and think you have to find someone immediately or your life is over. "And we can."

Being alone can be a positive force, turning you towards greater creativity and greater personal development.
Being single at any age can be challenging in a world that seems to place so much importance on finding the love of your life.
The whole world seems to be geared up to support you in this quest.

This is a sobering experience but trust me it will start to grow on you if you just give it a chance.
