You can do whatever you want whenever you want without having to compromise, every pizza is a personal pizza, and you never have to deal with in-laws.
Being single can be the most magical, wonderful time of your life. Here’s why.
Finding Out Who You Are
There are physical characteristics that we all know about ourselves; height and approximate weight being some of them. But being single affords you a unique opportunity: you get to really find out who you are. The good, the bad, the indifferent, are all laid bare. Your strengths, weaknesses and insecurities exposed. Embrace the solitude and learn and uncover everything about yourself. So many potentially great relationships are ruined because we carry much unresolved baggage from one relationship to the next. Being single is about finding out who and why you are what you are. And then working to iron out the creases.
Saving Up Money
One of the perks people often attribute to relationships is the ability for both partners to share responsibilities and financial burdens. But experts say that being single can actually incentivize you to be more financially independent. Sometimes when you’re single and don’t share expenses with someone else, you push yourself to advance and to be resourceful because you’re not relying on someone else to cover your expenses. This can be a great thing for your career and life.
Making Your Own Rules
When you’re in a relationship, you tend to put someone else’s needs before yours. You no longer always come first. But being single means you can be selfish, for all the right reasons. Have an urge to travel? Take flight. Want breakfast in bed, a long leisurely morning walk, followed by an afternoon swim and dinner at midnight? Do that. There is no one guaranteed way to live a great life. But by being single, you get to immerse yourself in the vital process of actually doing things and making up the rules as you go along.
Leading Healthier Life
If you were waiting for science to back us up, here you go: research suggests that unmarried people tend to be healthier than their married counterparts. People who were single and had never married exercised more frequently every week than married folks in a survey of over 13,000 people. Single women were found to have lower BMIs and risks associated with smoking and alcohol than married women. Of course, take this all with a grain of salt, but it can be suggested that those who are single have more time to focus on exercise, etc.
Remember, the best relationships occur when you have a good understanding of your needs, wants and values. Being single allows you to focus on these things. Having this confidence and self-awareness will ultimately serve you in all of your relationships, not just romantic ones.
