A lot of people suffer from the syndrome “the grass is always greener on the other side” especially when it comes to relationships. But, in life, you come to a moment when you realize that there is nothing wrong to pursue a relationship with yourself.
That means no pursuit of a romantic relationship, no dating apps or sites, no blind-dates setups by family and friends. In no time you will notice that you are more dedicated to your work, family, and friends.
And you feel fulfilled and happy, and then there comes a moment when you see a happy couple, walking down the street, smiling and holding hands, and you think: Why I don’t have that?
But then you go back to reality and realize that single life is actually marvelous and that you choose this type of life. Do you know why single life is that incredible? Read on to find out.
Top #15 Reasons Why Being Single is Amazing
#1 Going Out is Always an Adventure
When you are single, you can go out and let the night lead its way. Meaning that you don’t have to worry about hurting someone’s feelings if you don’t text back if you don’t say where you are. You can be wild, young and careless.
And those are things which you cannot fully experience once you are in a relationship.
#2 You Only Have to Check In with Your Parents
This might seem bad at first, but with time you will love doing that since your parents mean nothing wrong to you and they are the ones who genuinely care about you.
#3 You Don’t Have to Wonder If You’re with the Right Person
Being single means being true to yourself. And no you don’t have to wonder whether you made a right choice, or whether this person is the one.
You don’t have to ask yourself the question: “Is there something better out there?” When you are single, you can go out and explore.
#4 You Don’t Have to Settle
Being with someone just because you don’t want to be single, is the worst thing ever. You are single, and you are very well aware that you didn’t settle for less than you deserve and need.
#5 You Can Selfish for the Best Reasons
We all know that unless you love yourself, you cannot love another person. By being single, you have many opportunities to get to know yourself, what you can offer, and give. To understand what you want from life and a potential partner.
By being entirely true to yourself, you are going to offer the best to friends, potential partners, and colleagues.
#6 You Can Flirt All You Want
The single world offers many opportunities to flirt, and you can easily do that without feeling guilty. Cause, hey, you are single, so why not?
#7 You Can Save Money
You can save your money and choose who or what you want to spend it. You can go to that theater play you always wanted to go, or buy that extremely expensive bag. And no, no one is going to judge. It is your money, enjoy them.
#8 The Bed Is All Yours
You don’t have to struggle in the middle of the night for your sheets. And no, no one misses that.
#9 You Still Fell Excitement of Finding True Love or Maybe Not
According to sociocultural norms, you should find someone, then settle down, get married, have kids and raise a family. Oh, that same old cycle.
However, in one research around 73 percent of people said that the person they are currently dating isn’t actually the right one or their true love.
According to one site that does those different relationship metrics only 285, 000 to 1 will find the right person. Well, we can accept the fact that the odds are against us and try to enjoy life.
Instead of expecting to find the one, try to work on yourself to be the best version for yourself and maybe you will be someone else’s one.
#10 Life is an Adventure
Being single means having no boundaries. Feel free to do anything you want; you are bound by your desires, imagination, passion, and creativity.
#11 You Have Time to Work on Yourself
You have time, motivation and energy. There no distractions, no worrying about other people’s wishes, and dreams. You can freely chase only your dreams.
#12 You Can Travel
Traveling is better when you are single. Why? Because you don’t have to worry about your partner being offended that you didn’t invite him/her, or explaining to someone what are you doing each day.
#13 You Can Be Curious Without Worries
The good thing is that your curiosity won’t hurt anyone else. You can feel free to explore and figure things out.
#14 You Don’t Have to Do Something You Don’t Want to
Life is short, and sure you have a list of things on your mind which you want to do for a long time.
The good thing about being single is that every action, decision, and choice you make is entirely yours. And, yes, it is an excellent way to live your life.
#15 No Relationship Drama
The best thing about being single – no relationship drama. No fights over the phone about what someone said, what someone didn’t say and should’ve had.
No more pointless hours of arguing and making sure that you are a priority to someone, who doesn’t even put you third on their list.
Oh, aren’t we all glad we don’t have to deal with that? Drama no thank you. Instead, you should invest energy in other things.
No matter how this relationship thing will work in the future, at least now you sleep well at night. The great thing is that you greet each day with enthusiasm.
You can work hard to be useful and helpful at your job, community and to your family, friends, and co-workers. Maybe you will be “the one” to somebody, and if not, well that will also be okay.
The important thing is that you are “the one” to yourself and you are enough. You are whole all by yourself.
