Being single doesn’t have to be a debilitating handicap. Contrary to public opinion, remaining “bae-less” can actually come with some pretty sweet perks:
Freedom to focus on your personal goals:
We never usually realize how time consuming relationships are until we’re no longer in them. Sure the nightlong conversations and round-the-clock text messaging can be exciting, but let’s face it-they occupy valuable time that one could actually use to invest in themselves.
You don’t have to worry about being cheated on:
This one is pretty self-explanatory. You will be free from having to be suspicious about your partner and what they’re doing. Even in the best and most trusting relationships, there remains an underlying thought of “what would I do if they strayed?” Being single frees you up from these worries and anxieties…giving you the freedom to enjoy life just a tad bit more.
You stay in top physical shape:
It is extremely common for women to completely loosen the reigns on their physical appearance while in a relationship. There’s something about being with someone who loves you “unconditionally” that allows you to throw caution to the wind and pack on the pounds by the truck load. Being single not only gives you more time to focus on staying physically fit, it also gives you the motivation to do so as well.
You get to save money:
Subtracting birthdays, holidays, and V-day gifts can leave a girl with a quite a bit of extra cash on her hands. Not to mention those times you footed the bill just to show him you weren’t a “gold digger.” Save those coins and buy yourself something nice.
