These days, some people consider a person who is single flawed in some way. They accuse him or her of incompetence in developing or maintaining a relationship. He or she is considered too immature to get along with another person.

Fun fact: Being single is okay and need not be a sign that something is wrong with someone. The truth is that being single can actually be a viable life choice. One could actually enjoy being single and not having a partner.

Being in a relationship takes up loads of time. On the other end of the spectrum, being single gives one plenty of time to do creative things. Creativity flows freely when one is single! All the single-achievers from history attest to this fact!

Being in a relationship can be fulfilling. At the same time, it can prevent one from taking a good, hard, unbiased look at where he or she stands in life. Being single allows one to look within and focus on the self. It provides an opportunity to test inner strength. Someone who is single can confront situations of self-doubt and general uncertainty without distraction.

Someone who is single can boldly stand up to the uncertainties that he or she faces.

If you are single, more-often-than-not you only have to make decisions for yourself. This is good for two reasons. The first is that you can get things done faster. The second is that your decisions affect no one else but you.

The time and freedom to observe one’s surroundings are a definite benefit of being a single person. As a single person, you will be in the best possible position to look around at the world. While you do so, you will notice things that you once missed. This is because you are not taken in by the beauty or charisma of anyone.

If you became single recently, be aware that it is now possible for you to flirt about like a free bird! You need not be self conscious or worried about a relationship not working out. Your sense of liberation will be evident. This could even lead to you finding someone on your wavelength!

You need to be single and sure of yourself before you are able to develop a meaningful relationship with someone.

Another aspect of being single is that it allows you to save money. This is a no-brainer, isn’t it?

One among the ways to enjoy being single is by being generous to those less fortunate than oneself. Give things, money, and love to those who are in desperate need.

Work toward developing meaningful friendships, the kind that last a lifetime. You will have setbacks for sure, but you should keep at the process. This is an investment you are making for the sake of your own happiness and fulfilment.

Read a ton of books and magazines. Develop an awareness of the world you inhabit and its history. Books are friends who never leave our lives. They make us mature fast. The experiences provided by reading books are less painful than real-world experiences.

Support a cause that is close to your heart. Work for the rights of the disenfranchised. Put your weight behind the change that you want to see in your society, town, or country.

Focus on your health and fitness. Hit the gym, and be regular in working out. You will definitely surprise yourself sooner rather than later. Pursue a hobby. Join a nearby sports club if you must. Do the courses you’ve always wanted to. Jump right into the tasks at hand, and excel at them. You will surprise yourself by how much attention you are able to devote to them. Over time, you will be able to build a reputation for quality.

Think about yourself and the world you inhabit. You have the time for that. Ask yourself deep questions about the nature of life and your value as a person.

Ask yourself questions about what the world means to you and how valuable you are as a person.

Think about what you want to do in life. Think about where you want to be a few years down the line. It always helps to plan for the future. It is easier to fulfil a well-set goal than an abstract set of standards.

The life of a single person is fulfilling. It has plenty of lovely, heart-warming experiences waiting to surprise you! Go out and create yourself a fantastic day!

      It is great for singles to count their blessings and enjoy their singleness. You raised some good points here. Just remember to be responsible in your example to the younger ones walking behind you. I'm single too and I enjoy my freedom.

      I'm going to share this with my suddenly single sister who is in her mid-40s with three young kids.

      I've been single for sixteen years. No one has ever said anything negative, to my face anyway, but then I got divorced in my mid forties. I have not dated once, although no one has asked me out but if they did I would say no thank you. I love being free, and I honor people who are blessed with loving marriages. I just don't feel God's call to be married again. I have issues that would make me hard to live with, not character issues, but issues I have not control over. After my divorce, having been married for 25 years of unhappiness, I don't have trust or commitment for romatic relationships. I work hard at friendship and my relationship with God. I have the freedom to help others, enjoy many aspects of love and life other than romance and marriage.

      One thing you said I disagree with is that making decisions doesn't affect others. There are millions of decisions a single person can make that will affect others and vis versa. This was a good article.
