Top 5 Reasons Why It’s Good To Be Single

You didn’t find true love on Valentine’s Day?

Are you sad because you’re still single?  Don’t be . . .

Online experts agree that your single years could very well be some of the best years of your life.  Your single years should be enjoyed and used wisely.  In lonely moments it might be easy to forget the advantages to being single.  To help remind you, here in no particular order are the “Top 5 Reasons Why It’s Good To Be Single”.

Relationship experts say that sacrifice and compromise are healthy for a relationship.   When you are single, however, it’s very easy to set these aside.  As a single person you can still make sacrifices and compromises but they are yours and yours alone to make.

When you’re single you have more time for your friends.  One online expert states: “Friends are vital for living a happy, healthy life.”  Therefore it is important to forge significant friendships and enhance those you already have.  So party with your pals while you still can; you’re single.


Top 5 Reasons Why it’s Good To Be Single

Making travel plans is hard enough for some singles so you can imagine how difficult it can be when trying to coordinate things for two (or even more if you have children).  Being single allows you to go where you want, when you want and how you want.   Picture yourself on a beach in the Bahamas or aboard a yacht cruising the Mediterranean.  The surrounding scenery is no less lovely for the lack of a lover.  It’s still just as beautiful.

Without a partner, it’s a lot easier to find time for yourself.  There’s no dealing with sinners with your partner’s friends or weekends with in-laws. You’re single and that means your nights and weekends are totally your own.

Finally, when you’re in a monogamous relationship spending the night snuggled up to your lover on the couch and watching TV can be enjoyable but it can also get old fast.   When you’re single you have the freedom and the incentive to break routine and try different things like the latest dance craze, an unusual cooking class or some type of athletic activity.  Sure, a lot of singles might sit on the couch and watch TV anyway but even then single folks get to watch what they want all the time.

So if you didn’t find true love on Valentine’s Day who cares?  Don’t be sad.  After all, as one online expert expressed it: (t)he more satisfied you are with your single status, the more attractive you are to the opposite sex.  The one you seek is out there but until you find that true love, enjoy being single while you can.
