There are a lot of people out there who are either in relationships they do not want to be in or who are trying to make a relationship work just because they do not want to be lonely. These people have forgotten how awesome it is to be single! After reading the following 10 reasons being single is awesome, everything will start coming back to you and you will suddenly remember why you loved being single.
Hanging Out With Friends
When you are in a relationship with someone, you often do not get to hang out with your friends as much as you did when you were single. Plus, every relationship gets to the point where you would sometimes rather hang out with your friends than your boyfriend/girlfriend anyway.
Focus On Yourself
Not being in a relationship anymore will allow you to focus on yourself and your goals in life. Do you want to go back to school but feel like you can’t because it will cause problems in your relationship? If you were single you would have more time to focus on making your dreams come true instead of staying with the deadbeat who is holding you back in life.
Get a Career
What did you want to be when you grew up? Perhaps your career goals have changed since you were a little kid; however, it is never too late to start a career in a field you are interested in. Take the time away from the relationship to start working on landing your dream job.
Date Whoever You Want
A lot of people who are in relationships forget about the fun of dating different people. Going out and meeting new people who all have something new to offer is great! It gives you the time to decide what you are looking for in a relationship and you have a lot of options to choose from when you make that decision.
Go See the World
Being single allows you to move to other cities, states, and even countries if you would like. You are free to roam the world and settle down wherever you want.
Find a New Routine
When people are single you do things a lot differently than they do when they are in a relationship with someone. They sleep on a different side of the bed, they sleep with the TV on, and a number of other things that they typically would not do. Being single allows you to create your own routine that is totally independent of what anyone else is doing. Bottom line, you get to do what you want when you want.
Love is Very Risky
As rewarding as love can be, there are a lot of high risks that come with it as well. You risk damaging someone’s life forever if the love between you does not work out. Also, you risk having a child with the person you are in a relationship with and then the relationship not working out. Love is risky business and is something single people do not have to worry about.
Save Your Money
Being in a relationship with someone can be a lot more expensive than people think it is going to be in the beginning. When you are single you eat whatever you want and don’t have to worry about going to expensive restaurants or buying gifts or anything else that you spend money on in a relationship. Being single gives you the opportunity to save up your money so you can do the things you want to do in life.
Enjoy Your "Me" Time
We all have things that we like to do alone so we can gather our thoughts and make plans or simply just relax. Whether it is playing video games, watching TV shows, or whatever else you might do in your “Me” time, your time alone will greatly decrease when you are in a relationship. You should savor every minute you get to be alone when you are single.
Plan Your Life the Way You Want
Being single allows you to plan your life the way you want it to be. You do not have to worry about depending on someone else to help you make decisions about the direction of the future. When you are single the only plans you have are the ones you make.
In the end, being single is awesome; however, there comes a time in every person’s life when he/she wants to be in a relationship and start a family with someone. Just remember, it is your life and you deserve to be happy. You only live once and you should never live by making decisions that you are going to regret later on in life. You should never fear being single, because as you just read, it is an amazing opportunity to get your life together and make plans for the future.
