Relationships are great and seeing happy couples puts smiles on our faces, but sometimes being single is much better than being in a relationship. People want to find partners and the relationships can be fun indeed, but here are ten advantages of being single.
If you ever had a slightly longer relationship, you will know what we mean when we talk about freedom. When you are with someone, you are tied to that other person, and it can sometimes become overwhelming because all of us need some alone time. When you are single, you can do whatever you want to do and organize your time better.
9. Learn About Yourself
With all this freedom you have, you will have a chance to learn about yourself, to find out what you like or dislike and discover some things you couldn’t while you were working on your relationship. You are too busy compromising that you cannot focus on you. The saying “You can’t love someone else until you love yourself” is perfect here.
8. No Conflicting Plans
On more than few occasions, coordinating your life with someone else can be difficult and assuming that both of you are working, or going to school, have friends, etc. you might get frustrated when you don’t see your girlfriend/boyfriend. In a single life, you will not have to sacrifice other important things, and you can make plans according to your own liking.
7. No Family Events
Usually, after some time, you get to meet the parents of your better half, and this can sometimes be a bore or even worse – it can ruin your relationship. You can visit your in-laws for Christmas or Thanksgiving or for no particular reason. When you don’t have a significant other, you will not have to go through the small talk, which can be awkward and answer the same questions over and over again.
6. Casual Dating
When you are single, casual dating allows you to meet new people, find new acquaintances and do that with no commitments. Moreover, casual dating will help you realize what you like and what you don’t like in relationships. At least you can make friends if one of you doesn’t end up with the romantic feelings, so that is pretty great too. These dates are far from perfect, though, but you will at least have something to talk about if the date is terrible.
5. Space in the Bed
Couples usually like sleeping together, and cuddling is sweet, but it can happen that you fall asleep in an awkward position or even fall off the bed. This is not a problem when you have no boyfriend or a girlfriend, and you can stretch out as much as you want.
4. Parties Are More Fun
When you are dating, and the two of you go to a party, it is fun most of the times, but parties are far better when you are single. Sometimes it is hard to be in a crowded party with your date because they basically turn into war zones after people get drunk and you have to watch out and be alert more than when you are single. As a single man/woman, you can wander around and talk to various people and get to know them at the same time. Plus, you can stay as long as you want without anyone calling to check when you are coming home.
3. No Public Display of Affection
Some couples cannot stop touching each other when they are in public, and this excessive display of affection can be really irritating. Let’s say that there is a limit and when you cross it, everyone else is just uncomfortable. When you are single, you will be on the side of those who watch the happy couple not separating for one second.
2. Useless and minor argues
The inevitable part of every relationship is when you two engage in a argue without any particular reason, and usually, the guys are those who are clueless about what is happening. Sometimes these fights just start suddenly, and they end eventually, but in your single life, you will not have to go through these.
1.You always know where to eat
Picking up a restaurant or some other place where there is food is always difficult for the happy couples. After you visit some places it is hard to decide where to go next and usually, a compromise has to be made. Being single is great because you can go and eat whatever you like.
