As you get older you get the same questions ‘have you got a boyfriend yet?’, ‘are you still single?’ or ‘when are you going to settle down?’ ‘What happened with your ex?’ The best thing is brushing off these questions (as they get more boring every time somebody asks!) and thinking about why you love being single!
LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF
If you can’t love yourself then how can you expect anybody else to love you? The one thing about being single is you get a lot of time to yourself. This gives you time to reflect on yourself. When you start to reflect on yourself you will find that your confidence will grow. You will know the type of person that you are and what kind of people you want in your life. This makes it easier when you do decide to settle down. As you will know the type of person you want in your life and the type of person you want to share yourself with!
CAREER COMES FIRST
Looking back at some of the people I went to school with, they were married and had two kids by they age of 22. Most of these girls didn’t even make it to college or university and didn’t have a chance to start their career. One thing about being single, again is focusing on yourself. You get to climb your career ladder and get yourself settled before adding a partner into the equation. I am not saying that people in relationships cannot do this. Some lucky people get the partner who helps them to strive but some people aren’t that lucky!
YOU GET AS MANY MALE/FEMALE FRIENDS AS YOU LIKE
When I was younger and in a relationship, I felt like I couldn’t hang around with a lot of my male friends. Whereas when you are single, you don’t have to worry about your partner being jealous or having those trust issues. You can hang out with who you please and not worry about what other people think or any rumors that are going to be flying around.
THE WEEKENDS ARE YOURS
Don’t fancy going out? Fancy sitting at home looking like a sloth whilst eating your body weight in junk food? You can do this whenever you please without having to be judged. It’s up to your to keep your diary clear. You do not have to worry about seeing anybody or making the effort to dress yourself up!
YOU CAN EXPERIMENT
Being single means you can talk to who you like. date who you like. If you want sleep with who you like (if your into that kind of thing). This gives you a chance to experiment and see what it is you like. Figure out what kind of person you want in your life. Or even just having fun until you find the moment you are ready to stop and settle down. Being single gives you the opportunity to do all the things you wouldn’t be able to do whilst in a relationship.
BEING IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN LIFE
Being single gives you full control. You can do as you please, when you please. If you want to just sit in front of the television and eat junk, you can! Want to go out shopping and spend all your money, you can! It’s okay if you want to book a plane ticket and go travelling for six months, then you can! You don’t have to discuss your discussions with your partner, you don’t have to get somebody else opinion or approval you can just do it!
