Nowadays, being single is often overlooked and seen as a disadvantage, but there are so many benefits of being single. People would generally think if you are single, you have to be alone and lonely, therefore everyone wants to help you to find your second half. Yet I personally know a lot of successful and happy women who actually enjoy being alone… Prepare to discover the true benefits of being single and why you should start embracing this independence.
1. Quality time with friends and family
When you are in a relationship, you probably spend nearly all your time with the one you love. It is understandable: you two are totally in love and want to dedicate all your time watching movies, eating together and simply being together. Yet the disadvantage of such situation is the lack of time. In some time you would probably notice your friends complaining that you have become very distant and don’t spend your time with them anymore.
Conclusion: single people can spend more time with their friends and family without being dependent on anyone.
If you happen to be in a relationship, you would probably restrict yourself from flirting since you don’t want to make your second half jealous. When you are single, every single day is an opportunity to meet or see a potential partner…
Conclusion: single people flirt as much as they like.
3. Focus on goals
When you are single, you can dedicate your whole day to reading a book or jogging outside without anyone interfering or asking you why do you do it. When you are single, you can focus on your goals and dreams without sacrificing since you’re your own boss whereas you would have to adjust your dreams to your second half while in a relationship.
Conclusion: singles can spend more time on something they really enjoy without asking anyone if they agree.
4. No irritating habits
When in a relationship, you can discover that your beloved one has got a number of irritating habits that you literally cannot stand. If you are alone, the only person you have to deal with, is yourself…
Conclusion: no stinky socks, unwashed underwear or dirty dishes. You depend only on yourself!
I hope you now appreciate the freedom you actually have. If you are currently single, there is no need to want to be in a relationship just because your friends are in one. Be the queen/king of your own time and enjoy your time. Discover your true self and do what you actually like and not what you have to. Nevertheless, do not worry, when the right time comes, your special someone will find their way to you. Just don’t be in a rush and don’t think that you have to find one just because everyone else is in a relationship.
