You may be sad that you haven’t hooked up with your special someone yet but there are advantages of being a single girl that you may not be considering. Spending your life with someone can be wonderful in many ways, but there are also many advantages of being a single girl that you need to think about. Enjoy them while you can because you may not always have them!
1. You Have No Responsibilities to Anyone
With the exception of your job or school requirements, you have no responsibilities to anyone. This is one of the advantages of being a single girl. When you get married, you have joined your life to another and you will always have the responsibility for that. This multiplies when you have children. While those are also blessings, enjoy the time you are single and carefree while you are in that season of life.
2. Your Time is Your Own
When you are single, your time is your own. You don’t have to spend time with anyone or be sure to be home by a certain time for dinner or any other obligation. You are completely free to do whatever you wish. If you wish to spend hours upon hours at the library reading, you can do that. Whatever your heart’s desire when it comes to how to spend your free time, you can do it when you are single.
3. Your Money is Your Own
This is an advantage that is definitely enjoyable. When you are single, no one has a say over your money but you. You don’t have to answer to anyone for how you spend it and you don’t have anyone to fight with over it. That is something to enjoy. Having the full say over your money is another way to enjoy the independence of singlehood.
4. You Don’t Answer to Anyone
When you are a single girl, you don’t answer to anyone. You don’t have to explain why you were late or tell anyone when you will be home. There is no need to check and see if you can go out for dinner with some friends. You don’t have to explain how you accidentally backed into the kid’s basketball pole again and I can tell you from experience that does happen to married moms. You are completely on your own.
5. You Can Choose Whatever Décor You Wish
Men have a definite opinion on what they don’t like in a home. While many men are pretty relaxed about it, they still have an opinion. One of the first disagreements my husband and I ever had was when he would not consent to letting me get a red couch. We laugh about it now but the point is when you are single that is not something you have to worry about. You can have whatever color you want wherever you want.
6. Your Plans Are Your Own
If you want to make plans with someone, you do not have to run it by your partner before you participate. You can just go off and do whatever you wish at the drop of a hat. There is something to be said for that. It can be fun to be spontaneous. Enjoy your time while you are a single girl and do all of those things that you enjoy doing.
7. You Have Much Less Cleaning
Okay, ladies. Let’s be real here. When you are single, you do not have nearly as much cleaning to do. While it is possible that you meet and marry someone who loves to clean, most women find they do the majority of the cleaning in their home. Enjoy doing the dishes and laundry of one person.
If you are a single girl, enjoy all of these things about your life. We don’t know what the future holds and your status could certainly change. What are some other things you enjoy about being single?
