5 Reasons Why I Love Being Single

Do you ever feel bad about being single? Well here are five reasons to enjoy the single side of life:

1.     You have friends; enjoy them. Being single gives you endless time to hang out with friends. You can have wine nights, go on that midnight McDonald’s run, or plan that spontaneous day trip. Having friends at the center of your life brings you nothing but happiness. Guys come and go, but friends are forever.

2.     Establishing what happiness means for yourself. There is nothing worse than putting your own happiness in someone else. If you can’t learn to love yourself first and be able to feel content alone, then you will never be fully happy in a future relationship.

3.     Independence. When you’re single, you have the ability to do what you want, when you want. The only expectations you have to meet are your own. Your center focus is yourself and doing what you want. You have your whole life to settle down – live it up while you can!

4.     No compromises. You don’t have to compromise your own dreams to follow someone else. You can take that out-of-state job. You can devote time to further your career. You can spend those extra hours trying out a new hobby. You can do what YOU want to do.

5.     Dating!! Although first dates are awkward, meeting new people and figuring out what you like and what you don’t like is so important in helping you determine what you’re going to look for in someone in the future. Having fun and dating around is what being single is all about.

So don’t feel too bad next time being single comes up in conversation!
