I love love! And fully support being in a relationship (as long as its healthy) so I swear I'm not a bitter, single 27 year old telling you to just be alone. I stumbled across this article from the Business Insider stating three benefits of being single and I can definitely relate to it so I thought I'd share. Let me know if you agree!
1. You have more friends.
Although I talk about living it up with the single life a lot, I have been in serious relationships and this fact is very true. My social life increases drastically when I'm single and I meet more people because of that. Some people are okay with not having as many friends, but that's not really me so the next relationship I get into, I'm going to make it a goal to still stay the social butterfly that I am.
2. Single people stay in better shape.
PREACH. I started working out so much after my first real heartbreak because it helped me cope but also gave me something to do with all the free time I suddenly had. I'm not the skinniest person but I'm for sure in the best shape when I'm single.
3. Single people have more alone time, which makes them more productive.
When I'm lazy watching Netflix all day by myself eventually I'll get up and do something productive. But when I'm dating someone and being lazy with them, I feel like it's justified because we're doing it together, then leaving me to not be as productive. Does that make sense? Not really, but I know after I was broken up with once, it pushed me to focus on other things like my career and pushed me to work harder.
