7 Reasons Why it is Great to be Single


For so long women have been made to believe that being single is a bad thing and that you are not married with children shows lack of good character. This of course, is not true.

It is nice to be involved with someone you’re in love with and do “couply” things together but, until you find THE ONE, being single offers you great opportunities to discover and learn so many things about yourself.

Below is a list of 7 reasons why it is great to be single.

1. Independence
There is nothing better than being able to do things at your own pace and at your own will. The opportunity to prioritise without the worry of including someone else is something to enjoy.

2. Freedom
You can be spontaneous. Go out with friends for a drink after work or drive away to an unknown destination for the weekend because you want to. When you are single, doing things on a whim is perfectly acceptable because… why not, right?

3. Personal Improvement 
This is a time in your life where you can discover what and who you REALLY are. Decide what your values and beliefs may be, what goals you plan to achieve. Participate in your favourite hobbies and fulfil your dreams.

4. Trying New Things
Admit it, sometimes having someone else around can hinder you trying out new things. They might be a dissenting voice to your endeavours and that can be quite discouraging. So when you have no one you need to answer to, whether you are successful or fail at it, trying something new is easy.

5. Personal upkeep
It is said that singles tend to be healthier and look after their appearance more than those in longstanding relationships. That statement is quite controversial, but in ways it makes complete sense. When you are single going to the gym every day and making an effort to look good can be made more of a priority, especially if you are on the prowl. Loving yourself is the best way to learn to love other people.

6. Meet New People 
When you’re single, you have the chance to meet different people from many walks of life.  By being single, making friends is easier because you don’t have to worry whether or not your partner may like them too. Meeting new people opens doors to an extensive amount of possibilities that could ultimately change your life and make it a lot more interesting!

7. Flourish
Give yourself the chance to grow in spirituality, improve mentally and transform physically. This is a time where you can be daring and truly discover what you want in a life partner and most importantly in yourself.

So, you don’t need to feel left out of the crowd when you find yourself not in a relationship. There are plenty of reasons why people are and choose to be single. Just by looking at the list above, being single can be good for you!
