Being Single is not a status. It is a word that best defines a person who is strong enough to live and enjoy life without depending on others. Single girls are one heck of a powerful pack if Sex and the City and Charlie’s Angel is anything to go by. Doesn’t matter if your heart has been recently stamped upon and you are swimming in a pool of self-loathing or simply tired of looking for “the one”. It’s time to break free and celebrate being single.
Being Single Is Better Than Being With The Wrong Person
A research study published in Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, found that people who fear being single often settle for less in love, they’re more likely to cling to unhappy relationships and are more willing to date duds.
Here are 10 reasons to rejoice Being Single.
✔ Sitcom Marathon
We know WWE Raw and that Football world cup just isn’t your thing. Well, good news then. Since you are on your own, you could watch your favorite Romcoms, Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries and Friends over and over again without a dude fretting over how disgustingly mushy they are. Curl up in bed in your favorite PJs, it’s going to be an all weekend marathon of fun and catching up with all that you missed earlier.
✔ The Open That Bottle High
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, wine comes a close second. Who needs a man for entertainment when there’s wine, snacks, Facebook and friends ?. There’s nothing like having a bunch of girlfriends over, popping a costly wine and catch up on catty gossips. Nothing’s off topics. Need guys to keep you company ?. Hardly, we think.
