Every memory I have from high school includes my friends having a significant other while I end up being a third wheel. If I invited my best friend to the movie, I somehow invited her boyfriend. Don't get me wrong; I don't dislike people in relationships. But sometimes you just need some girl time away from the guys. It seems like everywhere I look there is someone in a relationship and good for them, but here are some of the best things about not being in a relationship.
1. No shaving
Skipping a few days here and there is no problem when the only person who touches your legs is you and you just wanna take a quick shower.
2. Binge-watching Netflix
Being single means you can watch what you want when you want without someone else butting in. Eight straight hours of "Supernatural"? No problem.
3. Clothing is optional at home
After a long day, there is no better feeling than taking off your pants. Enjoy it while you can.
4. Experimenting with food
If you wanna eat a burger with honey or some combination of food, eat away without care.
5. More cats = more fun
Let's begin this transition to crazy cat lady early.
6. Saving money
But in reality, you're gonna spend it elsewhere, either on clothing, gas, or food.
7. Sleeping in on the weekend
No significant other means more time to sleep and no one to wake you up.
8. Eating what you want when you want
There's always that one day when you're still hungry no matter how much you eat so eat away.
9. No drama or random fights
I may not have these with a significant other but I definitely have them with my roommates and my mother. Not always avoidable, and it's typically over who didn't put the new roll of toilet paper on the roll.
10. No awkward conversation starters
Unless you're planning on going on dates, there will be no awkwardly sitting across from someone else and not knowing what to say. If I wanted to stare at a wall, I would have stayed at home.
11. A day off really means a day off
You can relax instead of rushing around to go out and be with someone (unless that's what you want to do). I like reading a book or sleeping.
12. Leaving your apartment or room a mess
I somehow always end up running behind at least one day during the week because I lost track of time and clothes end up on my floor with all the other collections of items I've pushed off my desk and bed and I don't care because I'm proud of my mess and it's organized in some weird way.
13. Eating a whole pizza
Not going to lie. I've come close to eating a whole pizza myself before.
14. You are committed to one person: yourself
Take this single time to pamper yourself and enjoy the no-strings-attached lifestyle.
15. Blasting "Single Ladies"
You are only single for a period of your life, so blast this while it's true and release your inner Beyonce.
