Top 10 Fun Things about being Single

1 2

Everybody (more or less) dreams of finding that one special person they can share their lives with. Surely, being in a good relationship is probably one of the best things which can happen to you. However, this does not mean all those singletons out there start questionings their ways right away!

Being alone doesn’t always mean being lonely. There are a number of people who are single, by choice, and are really happy and satisfied with their lives. There are a lot of benefits of being single. In case all those around you have found their ‘someone special’ and you think you are missing out on all the fun, think again. Being single can actually be quite fun. Here are ten fun things about being single which every singleton must feel grateful for!

 

1. Individuality

Individuality

When you are in a relationship, people (friends and family) has this annoying habit of viewing you and your partner as ‘one’. No matter how hard you may have worked to earn a name for yourself, or establish yourself as a strong, powerful, independent individual, relationships do affect your individuality one way or the other. Many a times you will be referred to as ‘someone’s girlfriend/wife’ or ‘someone’s boyfriends/ husband’. Being single saves you from the pain of losing your individuality, well in a way!

 

2. Free to flirt

Free to flirt

Undoubtedly, relationships can be a little restrictive. If you are in a relationship, it goes without saying that you need to bid farewell to good old days when you could talk to the guy you find hot or the girl you think is pretty. Even when your partner is not physically present with you, there is this little voice in your head telling you that approaching someone you find cute or hot is a big NO. Single people have the freedom to talk and ask out anyone they want. There is no jealous lover who will search for clues and check their phones to catch them red handed! Freedom to flirt is perhaps is one of the best things about being single!

 

3. More time for friends

Time for friends

It is hard to balance your professional life, friends and your girlfriend/boyfriend all at the same time. If you spend too much time with your partner, you will disappoint your friends and if you pay too much attention to your friends, your relationship suffers. Being single saves you from the trouble of dividing your free time between your friends and your partner. You can hang out with your friends for as long as you want, get drunk, go for late night parties without a care in the world. Relationships are really important but a life without friends is unimaginable!

 

4. The much needed me time

Being single gives you time for a little self discovery. Well,  having a good time with friends and/or your partner is really important, but every once in a while, you need to spend some time trying to figure out ‘yourself’ and ‘your life’.  Unlike popular belief that being alone is boring, spending some time with ‘yourself ‘ can be really fun. You can watch your favorite movies or the re runs of your favorite shows, read a book, go for a long walk, sing out loud or dance without caring about looking stupid! One of the major benefits of being single is that you get a lot of time to do what you like doing!

 

5. No pressure of looking your best!

When you are in a relationship, there is this constant pressure on you to look your best (atleast presentable) , especially if you haven’t been with each other for long enough . On the other hand, being single gives you the freedom to remain smelly, dirty, and hairy till you actually feel like grooming yourself. Not that I am saying being dirty and smelly is a good thing but let’s just agree we all have those days when  we don’t feel like taking a shower and all we want to do is roam around in our comfy pajamas. Single ladies, you can go without plucking, bleaching and waxing for as long as you want. A simple hairdo and minimal makeup will get you through the day! Guys, you can wear that hideous shirt which your girlfriend (if you had one) would hate and you secretly love!
