There are many ways life is better when you are single. Unfortunately, when you are sans a life partner, seeing them is a bit challenging! Both worlds certainly rock, but then there are times of the year when reflecting on the ways life is better when you are single makes day-to-day living much easier.

No Compromising

Want to eat Chinese? Then you can eat Chinese. You don't have to worry about whether your partner wants Indian, pizza, sushi...you just go ahead and eat Chinese. Out of all the ways life is better when you are single, this is the best. It means you don't have to argue with anybody, except for yourself.


No Awkward Social Situations

We've all been there: our other half LOVES his or her friends, but you'd rather hang out in a Gulag than with them. When you are single, you don't have to smile at people you don't like. Instead, you can just love your own friends. This extends to going to family occasions. Say goodbye to the nausea that comes with listening to your other half's parents trying to row quietly...


A Complete Lack of Questions

Single people dread various questions. But then, so do those of us who are in relationships. Such questions can include, 'When are you getting married?', 'When will you propose?', and (dear God) 'When are you having children?' As a single person, you will face 'Is there anybody on the scene?' But trust me, you can pretty much end it there if you are blunt enough about how awesome being single is.


A Little Less Effort

For the ladies, this may mean not shaving your legs. Sorry guys, we really do relax a little when we love being single. For the guys, this can mean really unsexy underwear. That works well for us females too. The effort you make in a relationship is fun at the beginning when you are keen to impress, but being single means you avoid that point we all reach when we realize we'd just like to be gross for once.


You Get to Flirt Guilt Free

Let's be honest, most of us love a good flirt. It boosts your ego and makes you feel happy. When you have another half, you might feel guilty, even if nothing will ever go beyond flirting. As a single person, you can flirt guilt free. Highs hardly get much better than that.


Your Time is Yours

Okay, so this ties in with effort a little, but in a different way. Your time is your own when you are single. You can spend more time in bed, visit museums, go to the beach...all without consulting anybody. This also means you do not have to do anything you don't want. The word compromise doesn't even need to be in your vocabulary.


Indeed, embracing the solo journey allows you to be spontaneous. Fancy a midnight movie or impromptu road trip? Go for it! There's an unspoken joy in making plans on a whim, guided only by your desires. It's the perfect opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of who you are, what you love, and where you're going – all on your own terms. Plus, think of the peace that comes with avoiding those inevitable arguments over what to watch on Netflix. Absolute bliss.


No Arguments

We love the people we love, but that doesn't mean we aren't going to argue with them. Love sometimes leads to a little jealousy and frustration. We can control it most of the time. Some of the time, however, we might just explode. No partner = reduced argument time = better blood pressure. Yay.

Don't get me wrong, there are definite perks to being in a relationship. But knowing how great life is when you are single certainly makes weddings, Valentine's Day, Xmas and other occasions better. So if you are alone, try and smile about it. If you are a single person, how do you think life is better?

Single life is awesome enjoy ladies and gents you got plenty of time to find a mate!

I have all my time for myself... Great!

Hey babes it's me lov moktor. Here's some advice: being single sucks but luckily I have have found the solution. I bought a pet frog and wat can I say gurls - there was chemistry between us. I first felt confused like asking my self "do I have a crush on a frog?" Now I see there's nothing to be ashamed of. My frog is so nice and such a good listener. We shared our first kiss and it was like-WOW. He is my Romeo, I am Juliet. So gurls if u can't find a man get a frog and it will do wonders for ur love life xx69;)

Being single sucks........sometimes lol

For girls: more time with your girlfriends. For guys: more time with your guy friends. It's hard to know your friends are going out without you, because you're at home watching a movie with your significant other as you promised. Making time for friends AND intimate relationships can be difficult, and definitely a pain. Who couldn't use a little more girl time anyways ;) (or guy time... Ha but I'm a girl)

Frog frog wherefore art thou frog deny thy father and refuse thy name or if thou wilt not be but sworn to my lurv and I'll no longer be a capulet

When you've been single for your whole life? I don't think so.

Hey gurls my frog and I are moving it up a level and we are trying new stuff in the bedroom eg eating salad

So when can we expect the "1000 ways life is better with a partner" article? Cos that's ultimately what most people want!

I have all these things and a boyfriend. His name is Netflix
