Someone has got to put a stop to all this talk about how the single life is a bad life to live. So many girls in the world think that they need to escape the single life in order for them to be happy. Sadly, though, what these people don’t realize is that if they don’t appreciate their lives as single ladies, then no man is ever going to want to be in a relationship with them. Women can’t jump into relationships just so they can escape the holes of being single. In the end, the men will feel used and unappreciated.
Women need to be given the perspective that the single life has its many benefits and that it’s not something that needs to be escaped from. You don’t need a relationship with someone in order to feel happy or fulfilled. You only need a shift in perspective and you will come to appreciate the many joys of living as a single woman. Here are a few subtle reasons as to why it rocks to be single.
1. It gives you a chance to figure out what you’re really looking for in a man.
A lot of times, women won’t find success in their dating lives purely because they don’t really know what they’re looking for in a man or in a relationship. They will just bounce around from guy to guy and never feel fulfilled in the end. If you’re single now, then use this as an opportunity to really think about what you’re looking for in a guy. Know what traits he should have and the kind of personality he should espouse. Figure out the kind of relationship that you really want; one that would suit your character and lifestyle.
2. You have much more control of your time now than you ever would in a relationship.
You have full control of your own personal time. You get to manage your schedule now without having to consult anyone else. People in relationships always have to build their schedules around one another. They have to make certain compromises and they have to devote time to things that they don’t really want to be paying attention to. This is not a problem for single people who are afforded the luxuries of being selfish.
3. You get to focus on developing and growing as an individual.
You don’t have a partner to be worrying about. You don’t have a boyfriend to take care of. You only have yourself and you are your only priority. This is one of the best benefits of living that single life. You get to go out and try new hobbies for yourself. You can immerse yourself in good books. You could take up a few classes here and there just to grow and mature as a person.
4. You have the freedom to meet different kinds of people.
When you get into a relationship with someone, your chances of meeting new people will get smaller and smaller. You will be devoting most of your time to your partner, and that should be okay for some people. But if you’re still the type of person who likes to get out there in different social circles, then the single life is perfect for you. You get to expand your social network without feeling obligated to a particular person.
5. You get to do that solo adventure you’ve always wanted to do.
Solo trips are experiences that all young people must get to experience at least once. This is your opportunity to do it. When you travel alone, you get to immerse yourself in unfamiliar territory. You will discover more about who you really are as a person. You get to acquire fresh perspective both from other people and from yourself. You have the opportunity to embark on a substantial life-enriching experience all on your own.
6. You can spend as much time with your friends as you want.
When you get into a relationship with someone, it will be highly likely that you won’t get to hang out with your friends much anymore. That’s why now that you’re still single, make the most out of your friendly relationships. Have some nights out on the town with your girls. There’s no man who will be texting you every hour asking you what time you’ll be getting home. You can have some absolute fun without any responsibilities.
7. You get to go after your dreams without anything holding you back.
You are an ambitious woman. You have dreams and aspirations that transcend just being in a relationship with someone. You have a successful future that you have already envisioned for yourself. Being single gives you the chance to go after your dreams without being distracted by relationships. You will be afforded the full freedom that is required to obsessively reach for the stars. You can go after your heart’s deepest desires on your own and you don’t need a man to help you out at all.
