What are the pros and cons of being single?

(all the single ladies XD)
I'm not one of those people who are in a relationship and want to get out of it, i'm single too. I'm not sad about it, I just want to know the pros and cons about it.

Name all the good and bad things you know about being single?

Updates:

  • When you have nobody (no partner or significant other) then you have nobody to lose, or have or need to compromise with or make sacrifices for.

    You don't have to worry about someone cheating on you or vice-versa. Meaning that being single would be less drama.

    You have more freedom and control over what you want to do, where you want to go, the amount of money you want to spend, etc. Again, no compromising needed when you're on your own, you be your own boss and take charge of your life.

    Relationships aren't guaranteed to last long or even forever in the first place.

    Being with the wrong person or in a wrong, awful or bad relationship is still much worse than being chronically single but that's just me though some others may agree.

    But if you don't have anyone at all, and don't have any other friends or family that will help and support you, then you really would be entirely all on your own even when you run into problems where you really could use some help or in need of help, as you're all on your own without anybody else, no partner, or significant other, etc.

  • Pros:
    Freedom, your options are open, if you see a cute guy you can go after that. You can do what you want when you want
    Cons:
    Sometime it's lonely, seeing other couples. Also I feel like when your in a relationship you don't feel like you have to impress anyone but your significant other so that's nice.

  • Less responsibilities, more money to spend, have more freedom, you can focus on yourself more. Ummmm, YOU CAN BE A FATASS WHENEVER YOU WANTTT. That's the most important one I think.

  • For a guy I think it's awesome to be single in your 20's, more serious in your 30's and married by 40.

  • Freedom... When you are single, you have oceans of freedom. Especially when you are an adult and out of the house so no one can tell you what to do.

    Welcome to G@G by the way young lady!

  • Actually, I see being single differently. When I was younger and single, I felt I was missing something. Now that I am older and single, I am more comfortable with it. Between times, I really liked being in a relationship. So the bottom line is, how comfortable are YOU being single?

  • Pros: You can flirt with whoever you damn please
    Cons: You get lonely and want someone to hold and hug and cuddle and kiss and laugh with and UHG. I really want a girlfriend or boyfriend rn :( I have a boyfriend at the moment, but we live an hour apart and only facetime. I saw him on Sunday for 30 minutes cause he was in town. After i got back home he texted me and said "You didn't even kiss me :( " and i was like "Well... sorryyyy" he couldve made the first move!

    Anyway. Love is awesome.

  • Your age doesn't really matter. xD

    **Pros**
    -Freedom, freedom, and more freedom.

    **Cons**
    -Watching couples go by and suddenly wishing you had a boyfriend, but you will get over that feeling... lol
    -There are moments you wish you could get a hug

    But all in all I am single, because I am not planning on going out with someone, until I know they are "the one".
    I like being single. :)

      my age doesn't matter to you because you're 14 😂
      people commented that i was 13 before

    • 2mo

      Yes, but there is a difference.

      I am in high school, and you are in junior high. Not that it matter, but we experience different things, and honestly your age doesn't really matter. I saw that someone commented on your age, people do that. Don't let it get to you. You can ask what ever you want on GaG. That is what I meant when I said your age doesn't matter up above. ☝

    • 2mo
