Most people assume that being in a relationship is better than being single. Sure it would be nice to have someone ready to make you feel better about yourself, but let’s be honest, the things you can do when you’re in relationship is often limited to what your partner wants you both to do. Relationships can become so inconvenient especially if you’re with the wrong person. Being single might mean spending more time alone, but it definitely has its own perks you’ll find that are not so bad at all.
- GO ANYWHERE YOU WANT ON A WHIM
Relationships sometimes mean needing to consult your partner before making decisions with your life. While it’s nice to have someone to discuss and analyze everything with, it sure does take the fun out of spontaneous decisions like travelling. You have more freedom and more control with your life especially when you’re suddenly inspired to hop off a plane to India
- FLIRTING AND OTHER FORMS OF SOCIAL INTERACTION ARE MORE FUN
Sometimes a couple get so wrapped up in their own world that they’ve become exclusive to everyone, including their friends and family. Being single allows you to meet more people and explore with your playful side. If you aren’t ready for something serious, then single-hood is better for you.
- WORK ON SELF-IMPROVEMENT
Being single means, your needs are not being eclipsed with your partner’s needs. Love is all about making another happy, they say. But sometimes, you need to channel more to yourself. You can work on being a better person when you have more time to evaluate your own wants and desires.
- SAVE and HAVE SO MUCH TIME
Constantly waiting for your partner’s texts and calls or going out on dates with him is time-consuming, not to mention exhausting. Being single gives you more independence and opportunities to be productive.
- NO NEED TO SHARE THE BED
Single people value their personal space and having that big bed all to yourself after a long day of stress is the best way to end the day. You don’t have to spend the last few hours of the day making unnecessary conversations because you can just plop yourself on the bed and fall asleep in a matter of seconds.
- BECOME MORE SELF RELIANT
After having a constant companion for so long, having the loss of one might leave you incapable of figuring out things again on your own. Being single means, you do not have to worry about losing yourself so much in a person that physical loss became quite reeling. You have always relied on your own wits to get you by so you are always ready for anything.
- RECONNECT and SPEND MORE TIME with FRIENDS
Having a family sometimes means having to give up most of your personal time. Single people can keep in touch with friends, relatives, and family members more because they have less responsibilities and commitments to deal with other than their own.
- MORE CHOICES
Prolonging single-hood might be a wise idea, because then you have time to find for a suitable match instead of just settling with the first person who gave you attention. You can test the waters first, see how it is, instead of diving headfirst immediately.
- MORE FREEDOM
Being in a relationship sounds ideal, but being able to call the shots without worrying whose ego it is you’ve hurt is liberating and frankly, an advantage single people are so blessed to enjoy.
So bes, being single today won’t make you any less of a person. If anything, you should make use of the time alone in improving yourself so that when the right person comes along, you’re already a better version of yourself. Smile, being single isn’t so bad.
