There was a time when, if you were not hitched up by the time you were in your late 20s, you were deemed as doomed to a life of loneliness. But that was then and this is now. Today, If you are still single and ready to mingle, you have a lot to be thankful for. Here is a list of reasons why you should rejoice in your single status and not brood over the fact that you have still not found Mr. Right.
Benefits of Being Single and Dating
The biggest advantage of being single is the independence that comes along with it. You are your own master. This is especially true if you live away from parents or siblings. Being your own master has its own set of advantages. You get to make your own life and your own decisions.
You do not depend on anyone when it comes to making choices. This is a great advantage when you are dating. Men see this independence as a positive trait. You come across as strong willed and not the needy type who needs to be pampered and comforted all the time.
Being married, divorced or separated comes along with its own set of baggage. This baggage may come in many forms – children, husband or problems. Not all men appreciate the baggage that comes along with these ‘tags’.
Not all men are capable of coping with this baggage either. Being single and dating means that you are free of all this extra baggage.
An ex appearing out of the blue and wanting to rekindle an old relationship is not unheard of. In fact, this happens very often. Being single and dating gives you the opportunity to rekindle old flames. This is something that cannot be done when you are hitched. You don’t have to wait for an old flame to come back and ask you out. You can make the first move and take things forward.
Get Picked Up
This is one reason why your married friends will envy you. You can walk into a party with a new man every single time. You can even walk out with a different man. You will not be judged and eyebrows will not be raised. After all, you are single and dating, and you can afford to be as reckless as you want.
If at the end of the day, the one thing you want when you get home is peace and quiet, you can have it. No noisy children and no cranky husband.
If at the end of a date you want to curl up in your bed alone, you can do just that. If you want to invite a man into your bedroom, you can do that too.
A New Kind
Tired of seeing the same kind of men again and again. You are single and therefore you are allowed to try dating different kinds of men. Whether you try out a new kind of man every month or once in six months is up to you. You can take your time to find out the kind of man you would like to be with before you finally settle down.
Make the most of your single status and watch your married friends envy the life you lead and the unlimited choices you make.
