The dating life may be nice, but staying single certainly has it’s own perks that often get overlooked. We all have had those days where we feel like we’re the only one in the world, whether we’ve been with an SO or not, but those days don’t always have to seem so dark. Being single doesn’t have to mean loneliness and comfort foods, here’s what else you can find when you’re flying solo:
- Free Time
Relationships take up a lot more time than they appear to. Whether it involves video-chatting from a distance standpoint or actually spending time with your SO, you never quite realize how much time you truly could have to yourself or your friends and family.
- Friend Spotlight
While in a relationship after a while some people tend to push away their friends without even noticing. Being single allows for the she-wolf packs to reunite and get back to all the best friend shenanigans we all know and love.
- New Crushes
Remember how excited you and your friends would be back in middle school when someone developed a new crush? Why not bring those fun gossip nights back with a little wine,chick flicks, and Facebook stalker action?
- No Strings Attached
- Treat Yo’Self
You don’t have to worry about spoiling anyone special, besides your besties and yourself.
Cats are pretty great, they offer great company and sometimes they even “talk” back to your more often than your SO ever did. Take care of a kitty who needs a fur-ever home because you can! Remember, they even have hypoallergenic breeds leaving a cat for anyone.
- Self Love
Loving yourself is much more important than many people tend to realize. If you don’t take care of yourself, who will? Keep in mind, even the smallest accomplishments are still progress in the way towards a better you.
- Netflix and Chill
You can freely Netflix and Chill without having to worry about any interruptions that could pop up during your new binge or new favorite flick.
Don’t you ever worry about having to find someone for that wedding date or costume party, your best friends will always have your back. When your best friends can’t be there for you, you know who will? You will. You can and will pick yourself up no matter how hard or crazy life tends to get, especially your love life.
