7 Reasons Why It’s Good To Be Single

With all things “Valentine” looming around and about, it’s no surprise that many a single guy or gal is going to wonder .. “Why don’t I have someone?” or “Man .. it’s time for me to get laid/hitched/texted back”. Maybe you’re right .. but maybe not! See I’m of a different school of thought. I don’t believe that “single” is synonymous with “miserable”, or “single” means “lonely”. There is beauty in single-dom, so long as you’re confident enough to see it.

Here are my top reasons it’s damn good to be single:

  • You Never Know When There Is Romance In the Air

There is something downright mysterious and sexy about new romance. What’s more exciting than being the confident diva or divo that you are, and all of a sudden the beginnings of a new crush appear? Cue the beginning of a new courtship: the first touch of your hands, the first kiss in the rain, all the way to wanting to tear off each others clothes in the drop of a second .. that rough, raw, new romance is available to you, single-ites!

  • Fish In The Sea? Don’t Mind If I Do!

At the risk of sounding crass .. oh who am I kidding? I’m as crass as a Navy sailor. There are so many people out there in the world. So much good, so much bad, so much clever, so much new .. Single people, you get to enjoy the fish in the sea! You can date around, with no strings and get to know whomever you want! Why? The world is your single folks OYSTA! And you are the pearl, honey! Go check out the fish in the sea .. and check them out well.

  • Scary Thought: Being Responsible For Your Own Happiness

Gulp! Sounds scary, doesn’t it? Well, no .. it shouldn’t! So many people I know date someone because their significant other makes them happy, or completes them .. which in theory sounds nice.

You shouldn’t be with someone because they make you happy. You should be happy, and then form a happier union.

Single people, take note. Take your time, and get to know yourself. See what makes YOU happy! Bob, you like cheese and wine? Go check out a cheese and wine festival! Lana, you like to Salsa? Then go join a local salsa class! When you’re single you have less priorities, less commitments, and you’re not responsible for anyone else’s happiness but YOURSELF, so go enjoy it!

  • Explore, Explore, Explore & Find Soulmates
This is your time to explore – date around, laugh your heart out, and get to know your surroundings! You’re single and you can! BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION EVER: Soulmates are only your significant others. Soul mates aren’t just people you date: they can be people you meet in school, co-workers, random people at the bus stop – the point is, there are people out there that you can connect with. Old and new people and relationships deserve to be explored for soulmate potential!
  • Don’t Feel Rushed/Dragged/Herded To The Alter
You’re not a sheep. You don’t need to follow a pastor. It seriously makes me confused when people think they need to move on to the next natural step, i.e. we’re dating -> we’re in a relationship -> we meet each others families -> we get married. HOLD-UP-WAITTAMINUTE! Life is not about making the next logical decision in a quick fashion, rather it’s about living every experience, every moment to it’s utmost fullest. If marriage is your end and only goal, that’s almost pity-worthy. Single peeps, take your time – get to know the person you want to be with, enjoy experiences, and if marriage happens, it will in due time.
  • Create Super Solid Relations
This is something we can all do – single or not. It’s quite obvious that once people get into a relationship, their friends are usually at a losing end. Why? Some couples take “the honeymoon stage” literally and forget to be good friends (shame shame you people!). This is why being single is flipping terrific. Not only do you get to skip the sappy, mushy crap – but you also get time to spend with your friends and family. Who is your one friend you wish you could get to know better? Well, you can! Your world is yours to own, so go out and own it!
  • Travel/Work/Live Wherever You Want

You’re single right? You can literally pick up, and go to Bali if you’d like. You’re single right? So then I guess that opportunity in Miami should be doable. This may or may not become a factor for couples when they are in relationships, but it does create some thought about your other half, which a single person doesn’t have to worry about!

With that said .. Where yo boyfriend at? Does he like Mike n Ike? Can I have yo number?

    My current fave song celebrating singledom is Kelly Clarkson’s Stronger. It has the best line-”Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone”.
