I've been single for 18 years of my life. I never wanted to get in a relationship because I was too busy studying and getting to learn cool stuff. I just thought academics and knowledge were much more interesting. You can also exercise alone, or with a friend, play video games, go on a spiritual journey of self-existence.. there are so many things you can do better alone that make you grow as a person. Work on yourself before working for a relationship.
Hmm... assuming you are not the dependent type or people who can't stand being alone, there are a lot of benefits to being single.
#1. You can go where you want and not having to think about what your SO think. Like that really spicy food? Give it a bite! Want to flirt with random cute guys? Go ahead! Want to take a trip? Go ahead, no need to inform some dude you are going! In fact, hop on the bus for a weekend and have fun!
#2. A lot of me time will be available. Spend your free time how you wanted. Have a long bath. Make some tea and cookies then read a book. Write a novel.
#3. Get some NSA. The true benefits of being single is that you are not attached to anyone. You are available and free to sample out the current market. Make sure you are going for NSA and not a relationship.
#4. Get a sugar daddy... okay maybe not but that option is available. If you are attending college and you have student loans then you will be looking at 10-20 years of payment while dinning on instant noodles. Having a strong revenue source will get you off your debt quickly and give you enough money to start your own life.
One sentence... you can do whatever you fricking want.
no one breathing over you asking stupid questions about activities... you don't have to filter words so you don't hurt feelings... best part... you can flirt as much as possible without someone casting you dirty looks every 2 seconds. You say what can you do as a single person? you pick!!! thats the beauty of it!!! wana go to the movies? hell fuck yeah... and You get to pick the movie too!!!
being a single it's not a sign of a bad things, sometimes being a single gives you the chance to know who you really are and achieve what do you want. I am single from a long time and I feel like a free bird. it doesn't mean that I have a less chance with girls or something, but I wanna feel proud when I look back (my history).
You need to be happy with yourself, and comfortable in your company and no one elses first. That way you won't just try and attatch yourself to someone, someone who possibly isn't right for you while all the time missing oppertunities to actually meet the right person because you are taken.
go to clubs with friends, not having drama incoming. more time for friends. well I don't know if anything is good but there is the illuminati triangle you can choose between gaming/friends time, school/work and having a lover but only take 2 to fully get it. I guess I am talking bullshit
Me and you are in the same boat. I find it boring if I dont have someone to crush on/talk to. For me, and I have admitted it to myself, I do this to seek male attention and acceptance. I do not know why. It makes me feel special I guess.
But the perks of being single? You get to be your own person. You do not have to keep up with someone else. You get to focus on your own happiness. You can hang out with your girlfriends for as long as youd like and you can have alone time without a guy texting you. Being single is nice. You can flirt around and wear pretty makeup and clothes because you want to look pretty for yourself, rather than someone else.
There's plenty of benefits. I actually went and saw a movie by myself. Got to enjoy my popcorn and make an easy exit. I can go where I want when I want, when my kids are at their dad's. Even when I have them, I don't have the same stress as when I was married. So much more lax now. And enjoying dancing, goofing off, and just being me. Some days it seems like it would be nice to have someone, but I'm just starting to stretch my wings. And enjoy things I want to do. You have to find comfort with yourself. It's hard to do, but possible.
You can do whatever you want without worrying about anyone
For me, I enjoy my freedom. I am free to explore new hobbies or develop my older ones. I save more money, and that has allowed me to travel and collect interesting things. I have been up to watch and keep up with all my favorite shows, read some cool books and discover new music. I have had less stress these last 8 months since I broke up with my boyfriend, so I am feeling optimistic and up beat lately.
I might be more of a loner, but it doesn't sound like you are? Maybe you can find an interesting hobby you enjoy and meet up with like minded people. Like at a fair, marathon run or whatever it is you enjoy.
