9 Benefits of being single | Reasons why you should be single

You can spend your money on whatever you want.

You won’t have to consult your significant other on spending money on expensive items like a new tv, car, shoes, purse, or anything.

A lot of times in relationships people tend to get into it over financial purchases that weren’t discusses, especially if it wasn’t a responsible purchase.

Therefore, if you want to buy the best furniture brands or splurge on a holiday, you can. Nobody is going to tell you that you can’t (except your conscience, perhaps).

You can also do things on a whim. If something takes your fancy, you can go out and buy it without having to worry about blowback.

You may even have more money in general.

You won’t have to buy gifts for the other person for the various celebrations like Valentine’s Day, Christmas, your anniversary, Sweetest Day, their birthday, or even “just because” gifts. You also won’t have to spend money on going out to eat for another person or doing activities. You’ll be able to save or spend your money however you want to.

You don’t have to consult your significant other about life changes you want to make.

If you want to change jobs, careers, move to another state, or even something as simple as shaving your head bald… You can do anything without having to worry about how another person feels.

You focus on you completely and you can put yourself first all the time.

With relationships, you do have to think about who you’re with and your overall relationship as a whole. You have to think about growing with them and doing things that would be best for the both of you (and not only you). When you’re single, it’s all about you. No stressing out about the other person. You’re the only driver of the ship and you don’t have to consult anyone about the choices you make.

You won’t have to worry about getting into arguments.

When you’re single, there isn’t a reason to argue. You’re the only person you have to worry about. You don’t really have to consider someone else’s opinions or feelings if you don’t want to. You can just remove yourself from the situation without having to deal with the aftermath of an argument.

You can be alone whenever you want.

You maybe a person that enjoys their time alone a lot. Being in a relationship can make it difficult to have time to yourself depending on the person you’re dating. When you’re single you can be alone and not have to explain why you want to be alone. You won’t feel guilty at all because you’re on your own.

You can do whatever you want.

You don’t have to ask about what place you guys should go to for dinner. You can see whatever movie you want. Play games without worrying about the other person getting upset. You are free to make any choice you want without having to consider someone else’s feelings.

You won’t have to consult your significant other on spending money on expensive items like a new tv, car (with sweet window tint), shoes, purse, or anything.

You’ll have time to work on you and grow into the person you want to be.

With being single comes time to evaluate yourself and time to learn yourself. You can work on whatever you want to work on within you and make strides to become your best self without the concerns of another person affecting your changes. (Now you can do this when you’re dating as well, but depending on who you’re with… sometimes it can be difficult because they may have their own opinions that may not be so helpful/motivational within your alterations towards a new you.)

You just overall have time to genuinely love yourself.

Now don’t get me wrong, you can love yourself when you’re dating… but at the same time you’ll probably end up spending a lot of time loving someone else and potentially putting them first. When you’re single, you have the mental head space to just see yourself and celebrate who you are anytime you want. The focal point is you and only you.

+ 2 more extra reasons

You don’t have to wait to watch shows or movies.

You can watch whatever you want to watch without having to wait on someone else.

If you want to focus on your career and work life completely, you can without having to be concerned about the person you’re with feeling negatively about it because you’re single.

I’ve seen it happen where a lot of couples don’t end up working out because one of the people in the relationship putting their work first above everything. It’s okay to be career focused, especially if you enjoy what you are doing.
