10 Reasons Why Being Single Rocks Better by Nobody: 11:57pm On Feb 14, 2015
So many people are
ready to be kept or tied
down with a ball and
chain, that I decided to
compile a list of all the
things I love about
being single. Here are 10
reasons to embrace the
fact that you are not in
a relationship and love
your single life.
When you are single you
can do what you want,
when you want and
with whom you want.
Being single is all about
you. It is a special time
to be true to yourself
and be a little selfish.
“You” is at the crux of
embracing your single
life. I am going to run
down a list of
reminders on why being
single is not so bad
after all.
1. No compromising.
When you are single,
you can do whatever it
is that you love,
without having to
compromise for
someone else’s needs
or desires. Maybe you
like fried chicken or you
like to eat cookies under
the stars in a tent in
your backyard. There is
nothing you have to
give up. You can indulge
in your guilty pleasures
or just simply be
yourself without having
to give up any part of
your pleasure in order to
codify someone else.
2. No explaining or
justifying.
Not only do you not
have to give up your
pleasures, but neither
do you have to explain
or justify to anyone
why it is you like doing
them. This is liberating.
Be yourself, no ifs ands
or buts about it.
3. No guilt.
Guilt is something that
we can definitely do
without. But, so much
of our relationships
revolve around guilt.
The aformentioned
compromising and
explaining are often
things we do to protect
our relationship from
it’s demise. We fear the
loss. Instead of
embracing
impermanence and
remembering what joys
singlehood can bring, we
often feel bad and
guilty about our
“selfish” ways. This
leads to self-
compromising
behaviors.
4. No jealousy or
insecurity.
Remember this?
Jealousy can come from
you or your partner.
When you celebrate
your singlehood,
jealousy and insecurity
about other people fall
down by the wayside.
Who cares anymore?
The most important
person has become you.
The ability to live and
let live suddenly
becomes within your
reach. Goodbye jealousy.
5. Friends.
Partners not only want
explanations and
compromise, but they
also may be jealous of
your friends? Perhaps,
partners may limit the
time you have to spend
with friends. In many
ways friends are more
important than our
partners. They are
there for us when our
relationships hit
turbulence. Being single
is a great time to
nurture your
friendships. So, hang
out with your most
debaucherous friends
and feel not guilt about
it.
6. Develop your
identity.
So often people lose
themselves in other
people, in their partner
or in their relationship.
Who are you? What is
special about you?
Singlehood is when you
can really let yourself
shine and be who you
are meant to be.
7. Have “me time.”
Like I mentioned before,
the crux of singlehood is
the freedom to do
what you want, when
you want, how you
want, why you want
and with whom. There
is no one to answer to,
explain, justify and
compromise for. This
independence should be
embraced. You want a
quiet evening at home
or an entire week of
solitude. It is all yours.
Just say the word. The
act of self-care is easy.
8. Pursue your
dreams.
Being single affords you
the ability to pursue
your dreams. Want to
travel the world or join
a touring circus? Guess
what? Being single
makes these types of
dreams much easier.
Single people can do the
things that those in
relationships cannot.
Chart uncharted
territory, be a trail
blazer or do something
that you have never
done before. It might be
easier to do these
things without a ball
and chain.
9. Financial
independence.
You do not have to ever
pay for anyone else. You
make your own money.
So, spend your money
the way you want. No
joint bank accounts, no
one telling you how to
spend your money and
no one asking you
where your money
went.
10. Emotional
independence.
This is probably the
most liberating piece of
all. Partners are not
always supportive of
our emotions. They
take our emotions
personally, they don’t
understand them or
they don’t support
what we are feeling.
Singles don’t have to
explain why they feel
happy, sad, angry, tired,
moody, crabby or
frustrated to anyone.
Feel free to feel every
emotion you have inside
of you and not have to
respond to anyone else
about them.
Some of these things
sound downright
selfish. But, the irony of
it is that these
seemingly selfish
concepts might actually
benefit our
relationships. We might
end up feeling better
about ourselves in the
long run, which in the
end is key for long term
happiness.

No matter how much fun it is being single, there's that feeling of loneliness that comes around once in a while.

How can you get the tings of loneliness when you have the whole of yourself to love?

I don't know how plausible your theory is...I'll say there are two categories of single people -those who have been in a relationship before and those who have never been in one before. It's entirely impossible for you to be in category 1 and not have feelings of loneliness once in a while when you're in the process of adapting to the "single life". Maybe you're in category 2 smiley

Op say the truth, if you'd see dat almost-perfect partner you've always dream about sweep you off your feet.. Would you still come here to post this..
Singleness can not be compared with being with someone you love.

Believe me, it is one of the best feeling (if not the best sef) on mother earth.... You have complete freedom to do things (lawful) things... No emotional blackmails, no depreciating financial status, no hasslings, no tke me here, buy this, etc... The list is endless... When I'm with some of my female friends, I do pity them.. Relationship is just not what I always thought it would look like when I was a kid
