Whether you are single or in a relationship, there are advantages and disadvantages that come with both options. It can be easy to think that when it comes to life, there are inherent advantages when it comes to being in a relationship in contrast to being single, but you would be wrong! The key is being in something healthy, because there is no "right" way to live, only a right way for you. While there is something to be said about cuddling up after a long day, there is also something to be said about the true sense of independence that comes with being a single adult.
Whether you have been single a while, have always been single, or are recently on the rebound from a relationship, there are advantages that you can always try to remember when you are starting to get down in the dumps.
Who and when you choose to date is something that, as much as we feel it's in our control, really isn’t. What you do control is the quality of relationship in which you engage. A lot of people stay in relationships that are not healthy, and that is far from a perfect situation. In fact, if you are in an unhealthy relationship, really study the answers on what makes being single so amazing and know that you deserve to be happy.
If you are in a relationship and you are happy, then hopefully you can relate to the advantages of being single, but also know the ten advantages of being in a healthy relationship, which are discussed below. So, without further ado, here are the ten pros of being single.

Forget dating! That’s way too much work! Sometimes it can just be nice to sit back with a glass of wine and get your Tinder on! If you are single, especially recently single, you may feel like your ego and confidence are not as high as they once were. One way to inflate that, albeit a bit superficially, is to go out and flirt with different individuals. Not only will you get an idea of what other people are out there, but you may realize that this ‘dating thing’ that you haven’t had to experience for a while, might not be so bad. Just make sure you’ve got your classic eye roll ready for when a guy inappropriately comments on your outfit!

When it comes to things that you want to achieve in this lifetime, everyone is going to have a different answer, and that’s totally okay. For myself, I want to be able to grow old with my girlfriend and reflect on a life where I can say I know I made a positive impact on the people around me. As a result, there is no better advantage to being in what is a perfect relationship than being able to grow old with your partner. It will hopefully be an amazing and rewarding experience when I am older and I get to look back on my past, and do so with the help of a partner who I know has seen me and loved me on all of the days, not just the easy ones.
