People value relationships so much that they even forget about all the goodness that comes with being single.

Sadly, some will even stay in unhappy relationships just to remain relevant in the society. While being in a healthy relationship can be nourishing and satisfying, being single too has numerous benefits that we cannot ignore.

If you are already in a happy relationship, good for you. If not, you have all the reasons to remain happily single as long as you want. So, let’s get down straight to these reasons as to why you should remain single;

1. You make your own rules

Being single allows you to set your own rules and standards. Unlike being in a relationship where you have to set the rules that you will both agree on, you can choose to do whatever you wish without compromise.

2. Freedom

Wonna party the whole night with friends? Some of these rewards can only be enjoyed by single people. So, if you want to enjoy crazy fun without having to answer questions, try being single.

3. Explore the world

The best time to tour the world is when you are still single. This way, you will travel to all those places you desire and no one will complain that are you not creating time for them.

4. Relationship fights

Relationships are never smooth and sometimes two lovers can be very petty. You will be saved from all the drama that comes with being in relationships and boy, isn’t that awesome?

5. Self-development

The best period to grow and develop yourself is when you are still single. It is the best time to identify your strengths and weaknesses and work towards being a better person. There is nothing that sucks than a partner who keeps on reminding you how terrible you are.

6. You save money

You do not have to use your money on anyone unless you want to. You will save airtime, fare to go see your partner and extra money used on night outs and vacations.

7. You hang out with who you want

When you are in a relationship, you will lose some friends just because your partner does not like them. But when single, you can hang out with anyone you feel like without offending anyone.
