1. Self Exploration and Growth.
In relationships, identities often get intertwined. Single, we get to focus on what our own heart is telling us, independently.
Doing whatever the hell we want whenever the hell we want to! “I want to eat Chinese food and crush a six pack… in my pajamas…for lunch? Game on! I want to make a drastic career change? Doesn’t effect anyone else. I want to pick up and move across the country on a whim? Ain’t no one gonna stop me.
3. You Have More Time To Spend With Friends
If your friends are like mine, they plan last minute happy hours and mani-pedi sessions. Without extra baggage, you’re free to spend as much time with your girls as you want.
4. You can flirt all you want.
If you practice enough, flirting can become one of your most treasured pastimes.
5. You Discover What You Value
Watching friends and family stumble through bad relationships can give you a fresh perspective on what you do (or don’t) want in your own relationship.
6. There is no one to monitor you 24/7.
One of the nuisances of being in a relationship is having a round-the-clock bodyguard—sometimes personal, sometimes virtual. If you are single, there is no one to report your whereabouts to. You do not have to update anyone about the happenings in your life.
7. No one will demand time from you.
Another perk of singlehood is your freedom to use your time the way you want it. There is no one to fight with you during busy days at work or school just because you cannot give time to your dates or late night calls.
8. You can practice complete independence.
If you want to prove to yourself that you are self-reliant, then stay single for a longer time. You will be trained to decide on your own, go home alone, and cook for yourself. Also, you become stronger since you do not have to count on anyone to comfort you whenever there is a problem.
