10 Reasons It's Actually Better To Be Single In The Summer

Well, we've made it through cuffing season, and summer is almost here. Once the sun comes out, it's as if we're a new person. We're soaking in the vitamin D and ready to enjoy all the season has to offer. Time to make way for the hot summer chaos that's headed our way and get ready for a time to remember.

Whether you've been single or are newly single, don't fear, because it's a scientific fact that summer is the best season to be single for... or at least it should be. Now some of you may be heading into the season with the mindset of finding a summer romance, well I'm here to tell you that having a Nicholas Sparks summer has officially been canceled. Tickets can be refunded.

Being "single as a pringle" is out and "single and ready to mingle" is in. Ladies and gentlemen, here are 10 reasons it's better to be single in the summer:

1. Less bullshit.

There is no one to stress about or argue with.

2. You can let your freak flag fly at summer events.

No need to worry about if you need to be on your best behavior.

3. No family holidays to mentally prepare for.

You get a break from the infamous, "So do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?" question from your relatives. No Aunt Helen, I don't.

4. You have more money to spend on yourself.

No pricey date nights, table for one please!

5. You can do things on your own time.

Plan weekend events with your friends or go on that last minute road trip without having to let anyone know.

6. Say hello to casual hookups.

You can hookup with as many people as you want and guess what? You didn't cheat!

7. Single people are more out to play.

There are plenty of fish to choose from.

8. The sexual tension is off the charts.

Let's face it, hot weather = less clothing. Less clothing = increased sexual tension. Buckle up.

9. Summer is when you look and feel your best.

Working out for that summer body has paid off and the tan is real, what's more attractive than that?

10. Most importantly, you can focus on you.

There is nothing better than working on being the best version of you that you can be.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against relationships and I'm not here to tell you that I refuse to be in a relationship in the summer, I'm simply embracing the fact that I'm single and I plan on enjoying every minute of it until someone comes along. That being said, I welcome all challengers.

They say summertime is a game-changer, it's a time where the term "it's all fun and games" really comes to play. So that being said, who's ready to play?

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
