I was lost and confused after a recent break up and relocation. I was wooed by the image of myself I saw reflected in those reptilian eyes. We stated dating intensely; seeing each other regularly, he asked me to "be his girl", and gave me the keys to his house.

I'd rather be happily alone than lonely. I'd rather enter relationships only when comfortable in my skin; when not seeking to fill emotional gaps in myself. I'm reasonably comfortable in myself. It's taken a long time to reach this point.

It's a period of your life, which my married friends reassure me will be gone far too quickly! So, unlike most singletons, rather than rushing to ditch my single status, I've set to work making the most of it.

So what is being single like? It is a time when you assume that having a boyfriend would improve life. An assumption that every non-single person you know is probably doing something better than you.

I've heard The Speech many times and it gets a bit boring, but don't get me wrong, The Speech always warms my heart a little because it shows that my friends are looking out for me, and care about me, and want me to be happy.

"Put on some high heels and a short skirt and come and meet me. The party needs livening up" he texted back, seemingly oblivious to the concept of feminism. And so I did. (I don't actually own a 'short skirt' but figured a nice pair of tailored shorts wouldn't disappoint.)

From never minding being single at all, the fact that I was spending most of my time at singles events made me feel permanently, terminally single. The more singles events I went to... the more I felt as if I was getting further and further away from actually meeting someone.

As with all things, the grass will always seem that little bit greener wherever you are not, and for every footloose and fancy free single girl out there enjoying carefree nights on the town, there's probably a pissed off, coupled up girlfriend, washing skid marked underpants on a Saturday night.

If "being single can be amazing", could it start being amazing in its economic reward, so the girl on the platform could be me, on my way to the airport to escape on a holiday with no extra costs where I can sip my two for one cocktails - for one.

A completely rational and intelligent friend recently shocked me by bravely confessing that 'I don't actually feel like my life will really start until I get married and have babies'. I guess I am different in that noone ever put the batteries into my biological clock.

This week I've learned two things. One that keeping bagels in the freezer means you get ice cubes with sesame seeds in. The second is that men have an uncanny knack of sensing when another male is sniffing round their territory.
