Thanks to the romantic leanings of books, movies and TV shows that permeate your culture, you'd be forgiven for thinking that life isn't worth living if you're not in a relationship — but that's simply not true. In a thread on Redditsingle guys have been sharing the ways that they pursue happiness and enjoy life when they're not dating. Several men were quick to point out the value of platonic relationships, which are often framed as secondary to familial and romantic connections. But I think this is one of the biggest factors to maintaining a happy, healthy life. Whether you are celebrating victories or going through hard times, both experiences are made better by having a supportive community around you.
