You’re Holding out

You shouldn’t be upset if you’re single because that simply means that you’re holding out for someone who’s right for you. You’re not just going to date someone for the sake of dating them. Instead, you want to date them because you like them. Wait for that person to come along.

2

You’re Free

Having a significant other often means that you’re tied to that other person. That’s not always the case, but isn’t it nice to be single and not have to run your plans by anyone else? You can just drop everything and do something on a whim if you want. You don’t have to beg your significant other to attend a friend’s event with you; instead you can just go on your own!

3

You Don’t Have to Share

How many times have you laid in your bed and thought, “How is anyone in a relationship? I can’t imagine sharing this amazing bed with anyone else?” That’s the case for a lot of different aspects in your life. You don’t have to share a bathroom, a bedroom, a bed, or anything else. Everything is yours, which is a comforting thought!

4

You Can Find Yourself

I don’t want to get too cheesy here, but being single means that you can figure yourself out. When you’re in a relationship, you’re constantly trying to figure each other out, or figure out who you are as a couple. When you’re single, it’s all about you, and you don’t have to worry about anyone else but yourself. You can figure out your own favorite things because you like them, not because a significant other does.

5

There’s No Stress

Not that every relationship is made up of fighting, but how much happier are you when you’re not in a relationship? When you’re not in a relationship, you aren’t in nearly as many fights as you are when you’re in a relationship, simply because there’s no one you spend as much time with as a significant other. It’s much less stressful when you aren’t fighting as much!

Famous Quotes

Happiness depends upon ourselves.

You’re Saving Money

Although it’s typically known that guys are the person in the relationship who spends money, girls are spending just as much. Not only do girls have to be different date outfits all of the time, but they also have to buy just as many gifts as guys do. There are birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, anniversaries, and other holidays. When you’re single, you’re saving a lot of money!

7

You’ll Become Closer with Your Girlfriends

When you don’t have a significant other, a lot of people expect you to be bored and lonely all of the time. That’s not the case, though. Instead, you just have a lot of time to spend with your girlfriends. Pull a Taylor Swift and collect best friends rather than boyfriends!

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

I liked being single, but now I just have someone else that has my back. There's pros and cons in both situations.

God I miss being single!

Being single is fun for the right thing. For example, working on your career, having a good job, understanding and discovering who you are, and waiting to be with the right person.

Amen.... I just got over a break up.... It was bad.... This article just told it all lol

Being single is great and not boring at all. You have time to go travel and have fun with your friends. It's easier to save since you are in control of your finances. You only spend for your self. You have more time to pursue your passion as well.

You also are thinking about your significant other 24/7 in a relationship. But if you're single, you have more time to do other things.

I really don't miss being single. And I never will be again

Being single to me is, finding your inner self. After a break up can also mean new things to discover of yourself and your needs. To me being single is like opening a new chapter after each bad ending and being free and patient for the right one to come will happen. Bring out your confidence, happiness and spend time with positive people.

Not always feeling nervous about whatever you say will make your other half get mad at you for just talking. My ex was such a control freak!

I love being single! I'm 18 and I've never dated anyone. People tell me that I need to find someone to make me happy but I tell them that I make myself happy. I don't need a boyfriend to make me happy.
