I've already mentioned what I don't miss about being single, now here's a list of things I do miss about being single. While I consider myself happier than I was back then, I can't lie about some of the things I miss.
5. Having My Own Room
I don't mind sharing a room with my wife, but I do miss having a room just for me. Especially when you have a smaller room and a medium-sized bed. Daisy and I are still sleeping on a full-size bed, so every morning I somehow keep waking up near the edge of the bed because Daisy took part of my side.
While I still have free-time, it doesn't compare to the endless hours of free-time I had before I met Daisy. Especially when it came to video games, as I put many hours into countless games from the age of two to my early twenties.
3. Having No Reason to Wake Up
Now this can still happen sometimes, but usually when one person gets up we both get up. I remember staying up until 3 a.m. and not waking up until the next afternoon. Especially the times of summer vacation during school.
2. Never Missing a Family Get-Together
My oldest (half) brother has it worse than I since he has three sides of family to tend to, but the one thing that Daisy usually won was on whose side of the family we went to for a family gathering. After like three Thanksgivings in a row, I told her that it was finally my turn.
Besides loneliness, freedom was a pretty cool thing. You could do whatever you wanted, and never heard anyone nag about what you did. My only regret is not traveling to one far-away destination. It becomes much harder to do that (if you fly) with an extra person.
