Before I met my current partner, I was that single girl — the one who was always going on dates but, for one reason or another, never connected with anyone in a serious way. I was perpetually single and searching for a relationship, and I'd be lying if I said I didn't spend plenty of time imagining the best things about being in a relationship: I loved the idea of constant cuddling, cooking meals together, and (eventually) splitting the rent.
Although I wasn't ashamed of my relationship status and knew that there were plenty of benefits of being perpetually single, I still always looked forward to being in love. When you're single, it's easy to feel like there are certain things you're missing out on by not having a partner, and there's nothing wrong with wanting those things. In a recent AskReddit thread, singles shared the aspects of couplehood that they most look forward to — from gaming together to having lots of sex to creating inside jokes — and it's clear that everyone has something they love about being in a relationship.
