Stronger Bonds with Other People

Every person in a relationship at some point in their lives must have experienced fading friendships. Each one of us knows the importance of having our best buddies around. But to build a stronger relationship you will often have to let go off the random catching up with friends, weekend trips and sharing those carefree moments every now-and-then.

Future is Filled with Possibilities

When you are associated with a person, they are all over your future plans. You have to have a 10 year plan as a couple to make things fall in place. But, while committed people are busy thinking about someone else’s future, singles can have their future wide open.

Wonderful Things can Happen Anytime

The moment you decide to spend rest of life with someone, the fun element in your life disappears. You can no more check out good looking people, you are not supposed to have their attention and the potential of having a fling also vanishes. But when you are single, wonderful things can happen to you whenever you want them to happen.

You get to Choose your Friends

When you are with someone, you must get along or at least pretend to get along with a group of people who are friends with your partner. It can be great sometimes but you no more get to choose your own friends. But if you are single, you can let go off the stress of mingling with people who you may not find want to hang out with.

Stay Fit

The weight gain which is complementary with a happy relationship is not a myth. It happens and it happens with everyone. The random outings and the romantic dinner dates are enough to build the extra layer of flab around your tummy. On the other hand, if you are single you have the liberty to be on a diet and avoid unhealthy junk.
