It's good to be single lots of the time, as much as it is to be in a relationship. But certain times in your life can be better when you're single. Maybe it's that you'll be away and miss them, or sometimes it's just to feel free.
1. When You Want To Travel
Everyone claims that they want to travel the world, but few actually go out there and do it. It’s especially difficult to do if you’re in a relationship and your partner doesn’t see adventuring as being high on the list of priorities. When you’re single you have no one else’s feelings on the matter to take into consideration, just a plane ticket and hope.
2. On A Girls Holiday
There’s always that one poor relationship bound sap who spends their whole lads/ girls holiday desperately trying to avoid temptation, while watching their single friends clean up on action. It’s not that you even want to latch yourself face first on to the nearest possible target, it’s just that the choice to do so, is the best part of all. You’ll never know what tomorrow has in store when you’re a singleton, after all.
3. On Nights Out
Being single in a nightclub (Coppers, for example), is what being single is all about. Getting ready, thinking about the night ahead, no jealous partner sitting at home texting you every few minutes. You’re free to flirt with, get drinks off and meet whomever you wish.
4. When You’re Studying
There’s no greater distraction than a relationship when you’re trying to get your head in the study game. You’re cramming months worth of crap into your head, when all you really want is to go and be loved up. The only option is to turn your phone off in the vague hope that they won’t distract you for twenty minutes. Alas, you can kiss all of these problems goodbye when you’re single. No love woes, no distractions, no problem.
5. During Your College Years
Being in college and being single is the perfect combination. Like tea and toast, eggs and bacon, cereal and milk (mmm…bacon). You’re free to experiment, meet new and interesting people, do whatever it is that you want to do. No long distance other half at home, crying down the phone to you. Bliss.
6. At A Festival
Couples at a festival are like a bad cold that you just can’t shift. One of them is most definitely there out of pure habit and both are trying to avoid an inevitable blow up from occurring. Being single at a festival means the freedom to go and see whatever band tickles your fancy, dancing until 6am if you feel like it and best of all, you’d never know who could end up in your tent…
7. During A Shopping Spree
Who wants to be that boyfriend? You know, the one who sits there with sixteen bags hanging off his arm, pained expression to boot, wishing he was anywhere else but here.
8. During The World Cup
The world cup for anyone not interested in football, was like an extended bout of crippling stomach cramps. Horrific. Painful. Uncomfortable. All the single football hating beings out there got to avoid this painful time and for that they are eternally grateful.
9. When You See How Miserable Your ‘Loved Up’ Friends Are
There’s always a few couples who should clearly not be together, it’s as obvious as the sky is grey. Why they don’t break up is the burning question on everyone’s lips. Why would they, sure isn’t making everyone else around them uncomfortable the whole point of being in a relationship anyway? Rest assured that they spend 90% of the time looking at your carefree single life and crying internally. You’ve got it all.
