Immediately after getting out of a relationship, you may feel like you’re destined for loneliness. Even worse is the sickening thought of being the only single person out there surrounded by happy couples.

However, in reality, being single, independent and free of the many stresses that a relationship can bring offers several advantages that outweigh relationships. Here are 10 reasons why flying solo is better than being in a relationship.

1. Time to build a better you.

With all the “free” time you have, now is the perfect opportunity to get down to your ideal weight, take that class you’ve been putting off, get a second job or start volunteering. The worse thing someone who is recently single can do is sit at home, feeling bad for themselves. Get out of the house and start building a better you.

2. Do what you want, when you want.

Just think — no need to “check in” with someone to let them know who you’re with, where you’re at and what time you’re expected to be home. Freedom at last.

3. Girl’s/Guy’s night out without the guilt.

For some odd reason, most girls/guys feel a pang of jealousy when their significant other has a night out with their girls/guys. Single? Grab your girls/guys for a night out on the town, minus the guilt.

4. Plenty of time to start a new hobby.

There’s always that one thing we’ve put off for the mere reason that we don’t have time to cram it into our busy schedules. With extra time, learn that second language, take that cooking class or even Pilates like you’ve always wanted to.

5. The freedom to date whomever you want and go on as many dates as possible.

Why not consider playing the field a little? After all, there’s no reason to feel guilt if it’s just a date. Keep it casual and grab a drink or dinner with that cute new girl/guy you just met or the person that you’ve been secretly eyeing for awhile.

6. No need to feel guilt over what you post on social media.

Unfortunately, the wrong post, photo or comment can be taken out of context and easily misconstrued when you’re in a relationship. Ultimately, this is the deterrent in many relationships.

7. No need to monitor someone else’s social media activity.

Ever feel like the social media police when you’re in a relationship, constantly checking to see if your significant other’s ex is ‘liking’ photos or posts? Unfortunately, most of us out there feel the need to monitor and ensure this isn’t happening.

8. Less time on the phone and more time to “do you.”

Relationships suck up a great deal of time on the phone between talking and texting, which can easily amount to several hours of a day. Think about all the time saved by cutting this out and investing this time in you.

9. No more “forced relationships.”

When you’re in a relationship, you’re not just in a relationship with the girl/guy, but you’re in it with their family, friends and even their pets. Chances are there’s someone in their circle you’re not going to like.

10. More money in your pocket.

Being in a relationship is expensive. Dinners out, mini vacations and gifts all add up to a significant amount of cash. Save this money towards something that betters you in the long run.

Fake It ‘Til You Make It: Why So Many Men Are Admitting To Faking Orgasms

I, personally, have never faked an orgasm while in between the sheets. The way I see it, engaging in intercourse and not finishing lacks as much motivation as smoking “a certain substance” without inhaling (cough, Bill Clinton, ahem). But, hey – just because I haven’t done something certainly doesn’t mean it’s never been done before. […]
