These days, it’s hard being single and happy all at once because people are so obsessed with finding their soul mates, who they believe hold the key to their happiness. But you can be happy on your own, all you need to do is to find yourself.

And being happy alone does not mean you loath the company of others. It means you have discovered that the secret to happiness is within you and has nothing to do with others.

Just for the record, here are 7 qualities you will find in happy single people.

1. They Are Very Confident

Happy people are very confident with themselves and their choices. They don’t feel insecure simply because they are yet to find that special someone.

They will also not do things that might destroy their self-confidence such as being around people with self-esteem issues.

2. They Are Mysterious

Someone who seems happy and fulfilled despite being single is very mysterious to most people. This is mostly because they don’t seem to take it personally when people ask them about their relationship status like most people in search of a partner.

They already seem happy; and finding a partner does not seem to occupy their every waking moment as with many single people.

3. They Are Smart

Facing the real you and accepting who you are even with no one else’s approval is not an easy thing. For you to be really happy, you have to be smart enough to look within yourself and find the things truly hold the key to your happiness.

Also, because of these brains, these people are less likely to get into bad relationships because they know what they want and what they don’t. You can’t easily manipulate these people into doing things they don’t like.

4. They Are Independent

People who know they have what it takes to be happy on their own are independent.

They will not give away their personal space just to avoid being single, but will fiercely defend it because they understand its worth.

5. They Love Traveling

People who are single and happy don’t shy away from new experiences. They love to travel and try out other fun activities such as making new friends.

It does not matter if they are doing it by themselves or with their friends.

6. They Are Charming

There is something special about someone who does not seem bothered by the fact that they aren’t in a relationship.

The fact that these people are so comfortable with their situations makes them really interesting and fun to be around. But that does not mean they are not open to the idea of being in a relationship.

7. They Have Freedom

Happy single people have nothing holding them back. They do what makes them happy without fear or judgment, as long as they are comfortable with their decisions.

Regular single people are usually very conscious of how they look to others and will often avoid being seen in certain scenarios because they don’t want to scare off potential mates.

Yes, you can be single and still happy, although most people don’t think this is possible. If you are single and having a hard time finding happiness, you can borrow a page from happy single people and enjoy your single life even more.
