Yes, you often see some long-time sweethearts and wish you had that special person to share everything with. But every time you see friends who are couples quarrel or indulge in excessive PDA, you feel blessed about being single. So if you’ve been through a break up recently or have been single for a while, here are reasons why you’re indeed in a great place in life...
 

You actually spend time with friends

You know those people who fall hopelessly in love and forget their friends? Eww. Remember what Carrie Bradshaw said, ‘Your friends are your real soulmates’. Tomorrow when you have an unpleasant fight with your guy, it is your friends who you will fall back on. This is why being single is awesome—you make as many memories as possible with your BFFs.

 

You can take solo trips

Want to take a solo trip when you’re in a relationship but to your clingy-cum-needy girlfriend that’s just taboo! Simply because in the couple world, everything needs to be done together, in a Siamese twin fashion. But when you’re single, you choose your destination, use your money to visit countries and derive experiences that you can call your own. Nobody’s judging.

 

No silly arguments

No silly arguments

Being single just means there’s less drama in your life and boy, should you be thankful for that! You can keep the toilet seat the way you like, you can order the food you love without having to share, you can wear what you want and you can get home whatever time you want to. Basically, you get to be selfish without any guilt!

 

The dating game

You know what’s the best thing about being single? The no-strings-attached scenario. You get to date as many people you want. You have different perspectives in life. Your friends are always excited for you because you come back with a series of hilarious or cute stories after every date. We’re just saying you can hit on that cute guy at the bar and win at it!

 

Lesser phone bills

Lesser phone bills

There’s nothing worse than coming home after a tiring day at work and having to attend to phone calls pretending to keep the romance alive. You don’t need to tell anybody inane things like what you ate for lunch, how your boss went crazy on you or what your colleague wore to work. No mushy talks in baby voices and no mandatory ‘I love you’ in the end. When you’re single—you get home, dig into an 8 inch pizza, watch Netflix and snooze. Aah, the good life!
