It’s ok to be single!
Charlie King from TOWIE has a DMC with Jimmy from the 4:01 Show in this video, and when we say DMC we really mean DMC. It’s such an honest, open conversation and then one of their topics is actually about how important it is to have conversations! Which is so deep.
So they’re chatting about how it’s OK to be single – ‘cos it really is, even if it feels like everyone else is getting girlfriends and boyfriends and you’re maybe feeling lonely, no friends, no boyfriend/girlfriend, AAAAAGH. This pressure is something that is always worse in your head. The most important thing is to listen more carefully to whatever is inside of you – you’ve got to think past that loud scared pressure and look to a deeper instinct. Like, if you’re only recently single and working on getting over a break-up then maybe your body and mind are saying you need space and time for yourself. So that’s what you need! Charlie waited for a while before his first relationship, and that’s because he knew he wasn’t really ready and if you force something like that it’ll never work – and you might even end up hurting someone, or getting hurt.
Finally, Charlie spoke about coming out, and the journey he went through before he was out, where he dated a lot of girls. He was trying to fit in, and to follow the crowd, and he’s got some excellent advice on that pressure of coming out as gay and where you can go for help if you feel it too. These kind of DMCs don’t just make awesome videos – they’re great in real life! So have more, have them with your friends or family. And remember – it’s OK to be Single! You do you.
