If you’ve been alone for awhile or you just got out of a relationship, now’s the time for you to embrace the single life. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with flying solo, and in fact, being single actually has some pretty amazing advantages. Here are a few reasons why being single is awesome.
Relationships are full of ups and downs, and they have their fair share of drama. From cheating accusations to jealousy and insecurity, relationships sometimes bring out the worst in us even when we mean well. This is why being single is so appealing. You don’t have to deal with the stress and crazy emotions that most relationships bring.
As much as you try to keep your social life intact, being in a relationship usually pulls you away from spending time with your friends. A night out with your buddies means your significant other is left at home feeling sad and neglected. This is why being single is so awesome. You have more than enough time to chill out with your friends whenever you want without having to feel guilty about it.
Relationships are very expensive. Most of your extra cash is spent on restaurant and bar tabs, movie tickets, birthday presents and vacations. But when you’re living the single life, the only person you really have to spend money on is yourself. Instead of paying for two people all the time, you only have to foot the bill for yourself. Being single will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars every year.
If you’ve ever been in a relationship, I’m sure you remember just how much time you spent thinking and daydreaming about your significant other. Having good and happy thoughts about the one you love isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it can cloud your mind and make it difficult for you to focus on what’s important. Being single means your mind is free of distractions, so it’s much easier to focus on work, school, and all other areas of your life.
While you’re in a relationship, you have to be very careful when it comes to your social media activity. Your significant other monitors your accounts like a hawk, and every “like” and status update can be blown out of proportion. But if you’re single, you can do anything you want online without any repercussions. You can follow hot guys and girls without anyone questioning you, and if you feel like posting an attractive celebrity as your Man Crush Monday, you don’t have to worry about hurting your significant other’s feelings.
