Are you “that” friend in your group that always ends up alone on a night out? Are you the only person not fussing about wedding rings and save-the-date cards? Do you friends look at you with mock concern and reassure you that “when you know, you will just know”? If you answered yes to any or all of these statements, then congratulations: You’re single!
Being single when you’re a teenager is great; you have your friends around you, you have no commitments and you can do whatever you want to. As you get older, however, something shifts. What used to be fun is now perceived as achingly tragic and as your friends pair off into lifelong commitments, pretty soon, you’re the last one standing. It’s time to stand up for your rights. When you’re single, you win every single day and it’s time to shout it from the rooftops.
There’s nothing more annoying than returning home after a long day’s work and discovering that your significant other has monopolised the television set. When you’re single, you’re the boss and if a show isn’t on your Netflix list, it’s not even worth thinking about.
When you’re single, you have no obligation to wear pants when you get home or for that matter, at any point around the house. There’s nothing like the sweet release of taking off your pants and if it’s just you at home, you can swan around to your heart’s content.
Never feel embarrassed about visiting the toilet again; when it’s just you in the house, the bathroom is your domain and whatever you say, goes. If you feel like leaving the bathroom door so that you can continue to hear the TV set whilst you go, be my guest.
It’s scientifically proven that if you’re single, you’re much more likely to exercise and lead a healthy, active lifestyle. There’s no such thing as complacency when it’s just you, and as a result, single people tend to be in much better shape than those in long term relationships. Sorry and all that.
