Advantages of Being Single

There are plenty of reasons to stay single but we don’t really get to think about them. Most of the times we focus on what we don’t have and, in this case, not having someone to say I Love You to or not having someone to exchange special gifts with on special occasions. This can be a sad thing considering that being single is the best time for you. You also get to enjoy a lot of things you won’t be enjoying anymore should a partner come along.


The following are a list of why being single can be an advantage for you:

Success that comes from undivided attention

You are free as a bird. Your singlehood is the best time for a Me-time. This is the time where you can spread your wings and soar high. Imagine the many things you can achieve both in work and in personal life when you have no distractions. This is why a lot of single women in Singapore are able to quickly climb the ladder of success. So enjoy this time while it lasts. You’re not going to remain single forever.

You get to save money

Sure you don’t get to have a special someone you can exchange gifts with on monthsaries, anniversaries, birthdays, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, and all other special occasions. But that also means you don’t get to spend money buying your partner a cap, watch, shoes, or PSP. Instead, you get to save your money on yourself. You can put your money on your investments, give to worthwhile causes, or even buy yourself a new coat that you like. Besides, being single doesn’t mean you don’t get to receive presents from your admirers.


You get to meet more people

Being single means your horizon is broader than those who are already committed. You can still make friends with different people and really get to know them. You can also use this time to get to know your suitors and admirers better. You are free to make friends with the opposite sex and learn for yourself the things that you really want to have in a partner. And while you’re at it, you also get to understand what the opposite sex are looking for in a partner. So you get to learn and practice how to be The Right One while waiting for your Right One.

You get to love yourself more

This is the time you get to enjoy your freedom the most. This is also the time you get to really know yourself best. You discover what you want, what you don’t want, what you need, and what you don’t need. You learn why this guy can’t be right for you and why all your previous relationships didn’t work out. You grow, mature, and become a better person along the way. This is when you get to accept your real self with all your flaws and limitations and still embrace them. This is when you become unapologetically you and love yourself the most.
