One time, as I was drooling over my twitter timeline, I noticed one particular twitter user inexorably tweeting for days that she is single. It does feel like she is advertising to the world that she’s a product ready for grab from the shopping shelves. And she may not be alone. Countless, if not all Facebook users in their teens and twenties have posted the same status. Some are proud and yet some are longing to have their crushes notice it to eventually court them. Yes I know! That’s one silly idea.

If you’re single and frantically wanting to be in a relationship, I have noted 10 reasons why you ought to be happy for being one.

  1. It is a Gift. Being single is a gift. It is an opportunity to align your goals and put it in a priority without carrying an emotional baggage that which your partner. Your partner can throw in vitriolic tantrums difficult to comprehend and being single can free you up that drama.
  2. More quality time with yourself. If you love yourself and you value “self-time”, you are free to choose and embark for a sabbatical break far from your daily stressors. Spend a weekend somewhere and indulge into good books and great foods alone. Never disregard this. Trust me! You will wish for this when you’re already in a relationship. Kids, domestic chores, and even your husband/wife can keep you locked inside your house voluntarily or involuntarily.
  3. You become a relationship expert. Your friends would always see you as the greatest philosopher to have ever walked on earth. You join the ranks of Confucius, Plato or Lao Tzu as you always have the best relationship advice. What really happens is that, your mind is not clouded with a spectacle of emotions so your advice always leans on the footing of logic and morality. So next time your friends come to seek for your advice, then you’re probably single.
  4. More Savings. If you are a guy, here’s the painful truth; you are bleeding money to your high-maintenance girlfriend profusely. Now you have more money to buy your groceries more than ever because you are not spending big chunk of your salary for dates and gifts. Savings! What could be more productive than that?
  5. You know which guy to avoid. If you are a girl or “feeling girl” you have more time to figure out the best quality upon which you qualify a boyfriend. This is not hard to do. Often, you just need to look at the failed relationships of your friends and avoid guys resembling the same characters that had become the cause of their heartaches.
  6. Flirt galore. You will find it easy to flirt without feeling guilty about it. You can dance your soul out in a bar and not worry about anyone secretly sneaking and observing your every move. Here’s the winning motto of the adventurous singles, “I can kiss and hug but dare not fall in love with me.”
  7. More liberty. You can plan your career and go right ahead without having to consult your partner. If you need to move to another location, you can just pack your luggage immediately and leave. In other words, you can enjoy autonomy in every decision.
  8. Great mental health. You don’t suffer relentless anxiety every time you learn boyfie or girlfie is on a company team building activity at a secluded resort or partying at night without you. This anxiety attack could lead to paranoia especially if boyfie or girlfie intentionally kept his/her whereabouts from you.
  9. You sin less. You commit less sin by having a peaceful mind and healthy thoughts as a positive result of not having a boyfriend or girlfriend showing signs of infidelity. And because you are single and do not need to put up with your partners flagitious behavior, you don’t plot murder or become homicidal.
  10. You can be more productive. You can direct more time and focus towards any activity that will bring you closer to the fulfillment of your dream. This includes your job and future ventures that normally require a lot of your energy. Use this time to advance your career so you can be independent financially and professionally when the right relationship comes along.

Being single means less responsibility to others but more responsibility to yourself. As you look and wait for the perfect partner, use this window of time to become more admirable, lovable and companionable. You don’t want to catch yourself one day saying, “He is the perfect guy/gal but I am not yet ready for a relationship.”

If not now, when?

Love does not appear in a space and time continuum having a designated timeframe. If it happens, it happens, regardless if you are ready or not. Life is short, one way or another you will always yearn for a partner in life.

Prepare for a mardi grass in your “in a relationship” status someday BUT FOR NOW party for your “single” status.

Love yourself today, so you can love more tomorrow.

In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the internet will likely be a lot more useful than ever before.

  5. Very nice write-up. I definitely love this site.
    Keep writing!

    specialists of this sector do not realize this. You should continue your
    writing. I am sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!
