Happy singles day! 5 reasons why it’s great to be single

Yet another happy couple posting another photo on Instagram, your best friend has a new boyfriend, and your relatives keep on asking when will you get yourself a lover. Maybe you’re also dreaming of being in a relationship, but it’s actually not that bad being single!  These are just some of the many reasons why it’s great to be single.

You can do exactly what you feel like doing
You don’t have to consider anyone else when you’re single. You can enjoy watching romantic girly movies, sleep in late in the morning or add a few extra cloves of garlic to your meal, and no one will be able to say a thing. And how about booking a holiday when and where you want? Isn’t that great?

You get to know yourself.
Because you don’t have to focus all your attention on someone else, you have enough time to really get to know yourself. The most important relationship you can have is with yourself, so it is important to invest a lot of time in it. Discover your passions and interests, and give yourself the time to find out what you’re looking for in a partner. When you’re happy with yourself, that’s the best thing that can happen to you, and the nice thing about it, then Mr. Right will show up automatically!

You have the bed all to yourself
You’ll never get cold at night, because there’s no one to keep pulling off your duvet. And besides, you don’t have to wear sexy (usually uncomfortable) pajamas, you can sleep comfy in your warmest onesies. We dare to bet that all couples are jealous of that.

It saves you money
Christmas, Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, being in a relationship doesn’t come cheap. All these holidays are accompanied by gifts. It saves you a lot of money to be single. And besides, you won’t have to be reminded of all the time you spent talking about trivialities at the inlaws’ Christmas table. In short, you have time and money left at the end of the month to buy yourself a new set of lingerie. And yes, you can also wear beautiful lingerie without being in a relationship.

You have more time for the things you like to do
What are you doing during the weekend? Saturdays are for socialising with your BFF’s and doing fun things.  When you’re single, you have loads of time for that. For instance, you can apply a mask without being disturbed, and have a beauty day. And you don’t have to dump your girlfriends because you already have a date with your lover. When you do fun things, it’s also much easier to meet new people with whom you have fun times and conversations. Win win!

In short, you have so much freedom when you’re single, and you just have to enjoy that! You can sing along loudest with all the single ladies in the club, and you don’t have to worry about anyone. No boyfriend = No problem.
