In my last post I talked about reason why you are still single, in this post I want to share the interesting benefits of being single.
Everyone thinks being single is a bad thing, I can personally say I was among those who always taught that being single is a bad thing (until I became single).
So here some of the things that I have done while being single, I can tell you that being single has its benefits and being single can be fun.
1. You can flirt with whoever you want without feeling guilty
When you are single, you can flirt with whoever you want without feeling guilty about it, I mean you can flirt with that person you have been crushing on without someone breathing down your neck and asking why you are flirting with other people.
2. Have more time to yourself
Single life is fun in such a way that you start to discover more of yourself and what you want in life, you get to love yourself more, during your self discovery you became happy and comfortable with who you are. You won’t have someone else to worry about and you get to appreciate the simple things in life like I have.
3. You become more self-reliant
When you are single, you start to depend on yourself for everything which is good you won’t have to depend on your partner if you eventually get into a relationship you won’t have to depend on your partner for everything. Explore your comfort zone and even push yourself to explore outside of it. Life is a learning experience and it’s always a great idea to have your own back through it all.
4. You get to save more money
When you are single, you get to save more money than if you are in a relationship, I mean you won’t have to think of buying something for your partner. Everyone knows, dating requires money especially with guys, and it’s an undeniable fact. So, if you are single, you tend to save more cash, avoid debts, and you could buy the things that you want. There will be no such things like “monthsaries”, “anniversaries” or “surprises” to think of.
5. Focus on dumping the emotional baggage brought on by your ex
If your last relationship ended really bad and you feel like you can’t get your ex out out of your mind then being single will definitely help you not getting over your ex but also help with the emotions that you would be facing after the break up.
6. You can focus more on your career
Being single will definitely help you focus on your career, you will be able to set goals for yourself, you will also be focused on meeting those goals because sometimes being in a relationships can be distracting especially if your partner is not in support of the career you choose. There are so many career opportunities for you out there just waiting for you to explore.
You get to travel wherever you want, you get to explore more without you feeling guilty about leaving your partner behind while you enjoy your trip,you get to take spontaneous trips without explaining anything to anyone (except your family and friends).
8. Go to shows
You get attend single people’s show (if there any show like that) and you get to go the movies.
9. You can pick up new hobbies
Being single I can honestly say I that I have picked up a new hobby and I can tell you that I love my hobby. If you are single you definitely need to get a new hobby even if it’s a weird hobby no one will question you if you picking up a weird hobby.
10. You will have more opportunities to find someone better
Being single has helped me figure out what I want in my future better half, it has helped reflect on my past relationships and what I did wrong and how to avoid it in my next relationship and also that I should be more careful with who I should to date. I am sure it this will also help you too on figuring out what qualities you want in your better half, someone who will love you and appreciate you for who you are.
One of the benefits of being single that I didn’t mention is that you will always be happy not that you won’t be happy if you are in a relationship but being single you will always make yourself happy and you won’t depend on someone else to make you happy.
