1. You’ll have more time to figure out who you are and how you can improve.
Being single allows you to take more risks in life. You can relocate, change careers, meet new people, and experiment with new hobbies. If you are in a relationship, you will not have the same level of freedom because your partner will not always support your decisions. Take advantage of this time to learn more about yourself and your abilities.
2. Traveling at any time and from any location is possible.
If you enjoy spontaneous travel and adventures, you should take advantage of the time you have available while you are single. You can travel anywhere and at any time, even alone, without fear of getting into a fight when you return home.
3. You’ll have more opportunities to meet better potential partners.
Even though no partner is perfect, you have a better chance of meeting the right person for you. How many relationships have been shattered by cheating simply because one half of the couple met someone else and realized he or she should have waited a little longer before committing to a relationship?
4. There is no one to keep an eye on you 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
One of the annoyances of being in a relationship is having a bodyguard on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week—sometimes personal, sometimes virtual. If you are single, there is no one to whom you can report your whereabouts. You are not required to keep anyone up to date on what is going on in your life.
5. No one will expect you to give them your time.
Another advantage of being single is the freedom to spend your time however you want. There is no one to argue with you during your hectic days at work or school simply because you can’t fit in your dates or late-night phone calls.
6. You are free to do whatever you want.
Being single allows you to do whatever you want (unless you still live under your parents’ roof). You are not accountable to any partner, and no one has the authority to tell you what you should or should not do. No one will judge you if you dye your hair purple, get inked, or spend your money on food.
7. Decision-Making Has Been Made Easier.
If you’re in a relationship, you can no longer afford to make rash decisions. Whether you like it or not, your partner has a say in every major decision you have to make, such as working abroad, relocating, or changing careers. Singlehood, on the other hand, empowers you to make your own decisions (again, unless you live with your parents).
8. You are free to return home whenever you want.
You can enjoy your night outs more if you don’t have a boyfriend or girlfriend to nag you about being home by 10 or 11 p.m. You can sleep over at a friend’s house without anyone demanding proof that you are, in fact, with a friend.
9. You Have Complete Freedom To Spend Time With Your Friends, Including Those Of The Opposite Sexe.
When you’re in a relationship, you have less time to bond with your friends, especially those of the opposite sex. Being single, on the other hand, allows you to spend time with them guilt-free because you are not concerned about someone becoming jealous.
10. It’s Easier to Save.
You can save a lot more money if you don’t have any dates. Everyone would agree that being single can help you stick to your budget more effectively. You also don’t have a partner to buy gifts for, especially around Valentine’s Day, Christmas, or his or her birthday.
11. You will have more time to spend with your family.
Another advantage of being single is that you can devote more time to your family. Remember that family is eternal, and they are the only people who will ever love you. Make the most of this time by serving your parents and bonding with your siblings. When you have your own family, doing these things will be difficult.
12. You Have the Option to Be Completely Self-Contained.
Stay single for a longer period of time if you want to prove to yourself that you are self-sufficient. You’ll be taught to make your own decisions, go home alone, and cook for yourself. You also become stronger because you don’t have to rely on others to console you when you have a problem.
13. You Won’t Be Up Until The Wee Hours Because There Aren’t Any Stressful LQs.
Yes, fights are common in relationships, but who enjoys them? LQs and phone fights will give you headaches, heartaches, and even puffy eyes. Stay happily single if you want to avoid the stress of constant fights.
14. You realize you don’t require a partner to be complete.
You soon realize that you can be happy even if you are single as you learn to love yourself more and try new things on your own. The truth is that you don’t need anyone else to make you whole. You are already complete on your own, and all you need to do to feel fulfilled is discover your purpose and live your calling.
