I’m convinced most people in long-term relationships are secretly miserable. Sure, it’s nice to have a partner to cuddle with, but relationships can also be terribly inconvenient. If you don’t believe me, consider these surprising benefits of being single.
1. You can flirt without fear.
Let’s face it: everyone flirts sometimes, whether they are single or not. This flirting is usually innocent in nature, but it could nonetheless lead to an awkward situation if a single person ends up developing feelings for somebody who is romantically involved. Add an insecure partner to the mix and this awkward situation could quickly turn into a terrible confrontation. If you love to flirt, then single-hood might be for you.
2. You can save tons of time.
It’s fun to send flirty texts back and forth, but can you imagine how much time the typical couple spends on their phones? A lot of people get anxious without constant communication, so those texts and phone calls might add up to a loss of several hours per day. Of course, you could just choose a partner who is more independent, but finding such a creature could be a difficult task. If you would rather invest your time in a more productive fashion, then single-hood might be for you.
3. You can become more self-reliant.
Have you ever been through a breakup so emotionally devastating that you couldn’t function for weeks, or months, afterward? Love is a chaotic force that can be both beautiful and destructive. Passionate feelings cannot and should not be silenced. But never let a person become the single subject of your thoughts, because few relationships are destined for eternal success. If you’re not comfortable with that risk, then single-hood might be for you.
4. You can stay in touch with friends.
“Don’t you worry; we’ll stay in touch!” Those words should sound familiar if you have friends who are in a relationship. How many of them actually kept their word? Not many, I bet. This shouldn’t come as a surprise since these major life decisions require the sacrifice of free time and personal freedom. It’s hard to find the time to do much when you have a spouse and child to consider. If you aren’t ready for such a commitment, then single-hood might be for you.
5. You can do whatever the hell you want to.
Just like a flower will wither if you don’t water it, a relationship will suffer without proper care and attention. Do you have a friend who complains about how “needy” her partner is? This complaint could be justified depending on the context, but most people simply underestimate how much time it takes to sustain a healthy relationship. There is nothing “strange” about wanting your significant other to spend time with you. If you’re not ready to consider the needs of another person, then single-hood might be for you.
