Sometimes it sucks being single. Especially when all your friends are dating or married. But there's a lot to be said for the single life. Here are ten reasons it's actually BETTER to be single . . .
#1.) YOUR CAREER WILL BENEFIT. It takes time to build a relationship . . . and that's time you COULD be spending on your career. When you're single, you don't have to think twice about staying late at the office, or bringing home extra work.
#2.) YOU NEVER NEED TO MAKE PLANS FOR TWO. When you're single, you don't have to run your plans by someone else, or ask "permission" before you do something. You can do what you want, when you want.
#3.) YOU'LL BE HEALTHIER. The first thing you do when you lock down a boyfriend or girlfriend is let yourself go. There's no need to eat right or exercise if you're not chasing tail. You know it's true.
#4.) WEDDINGS ARE MORE FUN. Going to a wedding when you're single is a completely different experience. Everyone is drinking and having a good time, and if you play your cards right, everyone wants to hook-up afterwards.
#5.) YOU CAN ENJOY YOUR PERSONAL SPACE. Does this one even need to be explained?
#6.) YOU'LL SAVE MONEY. Sure, you spend a lot of money when you're single and dating. But no one spends more than a married couple: They're always re-doing the living room, taking trips to visit family, and having kids.
#7.) THE SEX IS BETTER. There are definitely benefits to sleeping with the same person every night. For example . . . okay, I can't think of one. I guess you get to know their likes and dislikes, and vice versa. But that's usually where it ends.
#8.) YOU CAN WATCH WHATEVER YOU WANT. When you're single, you never have to fight over the remote, or have someone "accidentally" record over the Megan Fox movie you TiVo'd.
#9.) YOU CAN SPEND MORE TIME WITH YOUR FRIENDS. No matter how hard you try, you'll ALWAYS hang out with your friends less once you're in a relationship.
#10.) YOU LEARN ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT AND NEED. Being single doesn't mean being alone. It's actually a great opportunity to learn about yourself . . . because only YOU know what really makes YOU happy.
