7 Reasons Why You Don’t Need a Boyfriend During The Fall

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Utah chapter.

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, pumpkin spice seems to be the flavor of every single thing in this country and your summer goddess glow is slipping through your fingers as fast as Scarlett Johansson did in 2013. And as much as you don’t want to accept it- it’s also the season where you kind of want a boo-thang by our side. This is the time of year where Facebook, Twitter and Instagram usually are drowning with desperate boyfriend applications too.

But gurl, You’re better than that! Especially better than hitting up Ben from down the block, who is a totally gorgeous human being but you can’t hit up that fine piece because he’s in an on and off relationship with your math partner, Brittany, and you’re trying really hard to be a good person. We get it.

At Her Campus, we’re here to remind you that you’re a hot pot of rice who don’t need no side dish. Tis’ the season where you learn to self-appreciate and most importantly self-indulge!

For all of those girls out there who are planning to hit the fall without some extra baggage, here are our top 7 reasons why you’ll be having the best fall of your life!

1. You Can Love Yourself A Bit More.

“The great omission in American life is solitude; not loneliness, for this is an alienation that thrives most in the midst of crowds, but that zone of time and space free from outside pressure which is the incubator of the spirit.” — Marya Mannes, author and critic.

Having time to yourself is where you can begin to open up and learn what you actually appreciate about yourself. It also helps you find your own voice and gives you an opportunity to discover who you are, which can hopefully make you love yourself a bit more than you did before.


2. YAY For BFF Time.

Since this season is notorious for cute fall dates, who said they had to accompanied by a fellow lover-boy? You have some hot girlfriends who would love to do fall things with you. What’s better than carving pumpkins with your day-ones and talking major gossip about Becky’s hair?

3. More New Things For You.

Not having a boyfriend is the best because you don’t have to buy anyone anything but yourself. Go buy some new sweaters and some new makeup or that necklace from Tiffany’s.  This is the season where you can splurge on you!

4. What’s A Razor?

You can disregard that Pink Venus razorbaby girl. Because you already know that it’s cold as hell outside and there’s little-to-no chance of any human being getting a peak at your pearly whites. Not having a boyfriend during the fall basically rocks your socks off because there’s no reason to shave. Leggings till March? Done.

5.  You’re A Hot Single.

You ain’t tied down to any fool. You are allowed to hit on any strikingly crafted human being you set your eyes on. Being single in general is just a great time because you literally can just go out and have fun. Who likes commitment? Go flirt with Jake from Chemistry and go make out with Alex from Tinder. They’re hot and they have abs. It’s fine.

6. You Can Get Hotter During The Cold.

With fall at our doorstep, winter is just around the corner, and you’ve heard that saying- “Summer bodies are made in the Winter.” So with your extra time, the gym is the best place to hit. Getting a perfect bod can definitely happen with no boy tying you down.

7. What’s Sharing?

Once the weather turns, for some strange reason when you’re in a relationship everything usually becomes divided and you have to share. Well, lucky for you, you’re flying solo, so you don’t have to share jack squat. All those pumpkin sugar cookies, extra covers and all the channels on your TV are alllllllll yours.
