I REALLY DO! In a world full of ‘couple goals’ being a ‘single Pringle’ is tough but it’s so worth it.
You might think of my lifestyle along the lines of a loner who third wheels all the time but I would like to portray my singlehood as–
“owner of my own house, the first in her name, Queen of my whole bed and closet, protector of seven-digit bank balance, the mother of the whole pizza, the Khaleesi of unshaven legs, the independent, the decision maker of all plains.”
Archaic cultures will tell you that single equals bad, well I would say f$!* culture.
Here are few of the many reasons why being single is downright bloody awesome.
1. I can kiss anyone I want
Oh well! This has got to be the first point. If you are young, wild and don’t have time and energy to commit, then you must appreciate the freedom singlehood comes with. Flirt and kiss with no risk. (Unless you get herpes, make good decisions)
2. Save so much Dollas
Okay! Dating is expensive. And being in a relationship can cost you a ton with birthdays, anniversaries, random gifts, date nights and what not. As a person with no strings, no one tells me how to spend my dough. It’s all mine.
3. Time in abundance
I have no distraction at work. I have so much time to work on myself. I can opt for hobbies and finally learn how to play guitar. The world is my oyster. (Finally so much more time to procrastinate)
4. Family and friends
No more compromising with the people you are most close to. I can focus on people who truly matter to me rather than going out on dull office parties of my boyfriend whose boss needs some impressing.
5. Travel wherever I want
I can cross places off from my travel bucket list because I don’t have to consider what anyone else wants in the matter. It’s all about ME. Bon Voyage!
6. You can sneak a fart whenever
You know the times when you went on first dates and had to pass a little gas bubble but couldn’t? Guess who is throwing gas bombs freely and without a care in the world? All single people raise your hands.
7. No dress to impress
I can dress to my comfort. As much as I like heels and those sultry dresses, my love for pyajamas, loose pants, and comfortable footwear is infinite.
8.. Drama free life
I thank the lord every day for the life I have right now. Relationships are hard work but when you are single you don’t have to think about anything but YOURSELF. There are no fighting, no hurt feelings, life is (mostly) drama-free, and you love it.
9. Decider of Netflix
You decide on which series to binge watch. No more pretending to like stuff just so you could get laid. Relish and watch those guilty pleasures to your heart’s content.
10. No responsibility
When you are on your own you don’t have to care for anyone but yourself and that’s the most amazing part about singledom. There are more sad things in life apart from being single. Like, come on why does McDonald’s stop serving breakfast post 10:30 a.m.?
Despite not having a plus at public events, being a threat to other relationships and third wheeling Its all worth it at the end of the day if I can order a whole bucket of KFC and eat it all on my own. At the end of day, you don’t need someone to be by your side to make you feel complete. Its elementary, Watson!
