Why It's Okay To Be Single

If you are a woman, being single is seen to be a curse. People try and get you to be in a relationship 24/7. But most people end up in relationships to please other people which in turn makes them miserable. So if you are between guys, haven’ dated in years or just wanted to take a break, here’s why that’s okay.

Refusing To Settle

When you know your worth and you stay single because you aren’t going to settle. You let love come to you, you don’t go out and look for it. (AKA online dating)


You don’t need someone to validate that you are an amazing, caring, and beautiful woman.

Personal Growth

You can learn and grow in a relationship, but that is a different growth. Having your growth be by yourself has a lot more longevity in terms of independent happiness.

Focusing On Your Hobbies

Who’s going to take the time to learn a new language, learn how to cook, and read tons of novels, when they’re in relationship?

Avoiding The Nagging

We already have our nagging parents to deal with, so who wants to hear, ” What did you yesterday, honey? Oh yeah? With who? That doesn’t sound very safe…” from someone else now?


Falling into a routine as a couple is easy. But when you’re by yourself, you can do whatever it is that you want to do each night. And every night isn’t the same.


Think Samantha Jones from, “Sex and The City.” If you want to, you can go out and find a man to have a good romp with, no strings attached. Why? Because you can.

Girls Night

When you are single, girls night actually has more meaning than when you are in a relationship. When you are in a relationship, it’s an escape, when you are single, you are celebrating your freedom.

Doing Things At Your Own Pace

You don’t have to constantly wait for someone or you can clean the kitchen when you are good and ready.


When it’s time to pick a place and time to go away on vacation, you are all set. You don’t have to argue or compromise with anyone since you can do all the choosing yourself.

Dealing With Someone Else’s Emotions Is Hard

Some guys bring drama. Some guys bring pain. Some guys bring frustration and anger. Ugh! Who has time to handle all that plus worry about your own? Why make life more work than it already is?

You Have It, You Can Flaunt It

When you are in a relationship, you don’t want to make your partner jealous all the time. But when you are single, it’s anybody’s game. If you have the curves, flaunt them. Nobody can question your motives.

TV Privileges

Who controls the remote at your house? You do. No having to watch the golf and pretend to care about it when all you really want to do is stare at hour after hour of “American Idol.”

Victoria’s Secret

You want to buy that lacy panty, or that sexy nighty, go ahead! You aren’t buying it to please a man, you are buying it because you know that you are a sexy woman and you once you are in it, you will feel even sexier!

The World Is Your Oyster

If you want to move out of state, you can. If you want to go on an adventure and check out other places, no problem. If you want to start that new career, it’s yours. The world is yours for the taking when you are single. When you are in a relationship, you have to do what’s best for two people, not just yourself.
