Reasons Why Being Single is Awesome

It’s that time of the year again! Time to watch cliché romantic holiday movies with the cat, whilst consuming large amounts of cookies (and maybe some eggnog), and not being kissed under the mistletoe. I know it may feel at this time of the year that you’re forever going to be the crazy cat lady – when I’m single I like to imagine being a similar character to the crazy cat lady in The Simpsons, throwing my cats out of the robe. But you know what? Despite what some may think, it’s really not that bad. There are plenty of reasons why being single during the holiday season is the best, and here are just a few.

  1. You don’t have to buy presents for your partner. Sure, you have to get something for your mom or your best friend. But there’s no enormous expectation to live up to. You don’t have to plan for months to get that “perfect” gift, or waste your last three paychecks on one person. Plus, you know who’s always easy to shop for and always gets you everything in the right size? You!
  2. You don’t have to share your food. You’re in your bed on a nice summer night. You’ve got a nice glass of wine in one hand and your favourite chocolate lying next to you. You’ve been nibbling on it for hours now. You’re finally down to your last bite, and guess what… that bite is all yours! You need not worry about sharing with your partner. You may not have anyone to make snow angels with, but at least you have the last piece of chocolate all to yourself!
  3. You don’t have to look nice, ever. When the weather turns hot, you don’t really want to be wearing that skin tight red dress just to impress. I mean sometimes it’s nice to dress up, but wearing your really comfortable pyjamas all day every day, is better than anything. But if you’re with someone, you can feel obligated to do ridiculous things like dress nicely and brush your hair. No significant other? No problem.
  4. More time spent with family and friends. You may be single, but you won’t be alone! When you’re single, you can focus on your family and friends. They know you better than you know yourself, so give them some well-deserved you time this holiday season. You won’t even have to feel guilty for blowing off your clingy date.
  5. You can spend more time loving yourself. You know you can always rely on yourself, so this holiday season you can actually spend some much needed alone time. You know what you like better than anyone else, so why not treat yourself? Nothing is better than a gift from you to you. Plus, during your alone time, you can really find out what you like 😉 Do what you love and love yourself.
  6. You can mingle at parties. When you aren’t attached to someone at the hip, you can spend your time meeting new people. Holiday parties are great places to make connections and spread some cheer. Who knows? Maybe you’ll meet someone to be with for next year. You can spend time flirting with anyone at all!
  7. You don’t have to consider other people’s opinions. That’s right, when your single before you make a big decision about what you want to spend your money on or what holiday will be your next destination. All you have to think about is what you want! Then go without any attachments. You already know your schedule to, so you never have to go to any extra effort to fit in someone else’s plans.
  8. You don’t have to share your bed. You heard me right. There’s no one to steal your warmth, your side of the bed or your pillows. You can eagle spread your legs out, you can lie in the middle of the bed. You won’t have any sleeping problems from annoying snoring.

Honestly, consider it a blessing. So run yourself a nice hot bath and jam out to those carols, because no one is looking at how bad your moves are when you’re dancing by yourself.

Candlelit dinner for one please.
