On Valentine’s Day, it comes evident, half of the world as in relationships, while the other half are singles. But, that shouldn’t stop you from being happy. At least for some time, there are so many reasons why being single can be a good experience. Here are some of the valuable perks of being single:
1. You Don’t Have Anyone Nagging You
Relationships are nagging are synonymous to some degree. If your partner keeps nagging at you always, it can kill the loving feelings in the relationship. And the last thing you want to hear after your partner nags at you and says, “I love you.” Nagging is serious as its one of the main reasons relationships break up. Luckily for you, you are single. So, don’t worry about it.
2. Being single allows you to be spontaneous
We understand that singles are tempted to romanticise relationships as they aren’t in one. Most single men and women romanticise that they can hardly wait to meet their soul mates and take them to all romantic vacations all over the world, which they’ve been fantasising all along. But in reality, being in a relationship can put all your romantic plans awry. To put this in context, your boyfriend has just joined a new job, while your girlfriend can’t get a vacation at work. The truth is being spontaneous and travelling is very hard when you’re in a relationship. Now, that you’re still single, preparing for a solo trip all the places you wanted to visit.
3. Social Time with Friends
Remember that old friend whom you loved to hang out and share a drink. Well, you won’t be seeing him anymore now that he or she’s in a relationship. You’ll be lucky if you can see him or her couple of time in a month or two. The reasons that couples have to stop meeting their friends now and then is that the person has to cater, in most cases, to certain social needs of their romantic partner. What’s more disheartening is that as the couples reach their late 30s or 40s, they see their friends even less. The benefits of being single are that you keep hanging out with friends that match the various parts of your personality, while if you’re in a relationship, you’ll be habituated with people that match some certain aspects of your personality.
4. Your Lust Is Alive
No doubt, being in a relationship has a bunch of benefits, but one part most couples lose in a long-term relationship is the loss of lust. When two people are in a relationship for some time, may have reported that the sparks have dissipated over time, requiring couples to work on their relationships to keep the excitement and intimacy flowing again. If you are a single, you don’t have to worry about the excitement when you go out, because it’s still flowing!
Overall, all single men and women, do your best to cherish your relationship-free life. Eventually, you guys won’t be single forever, most of you will find yourselves in relationships, and when that moment arrives, you’ll be more committed and responsible than even than your past single life.
