Do Tell: What Do You Like About Being Single?

Even if being single isn't your preference, there have got to be some things you enjoy about not being tied down — like having the freedom to do as you please without checking in with someone and being able to flirt freely, which is a very underrated perk of being single if you ask me. So to you 16 percent that actually enjoy your single life, do tell, what is it that makes it so fun?

Haha, Marci! That's hilarious and so true =) I was thinking about this, and I think one of the reasons I am really happy to be single right now is because "girlfriend" is one of the labels among many that I've stripped myself of in the past year and it was really nice to find out that there IS a *me* underneath, and this me is actually pretty cool and likes to have fun and has her own interests and strength and confidence. =)

I liked having the freedom to make my own schedule and buy as many pairs of cute shoes as my budget could afford.

Oddly enough I always seem to have more general "fun" when I'm single. Also, my friends say I'm more fun and they like me more. Mean of them right! :P As much as I love being in a relationship, and as often as I seem to find myself in one, there is just such a wonderful sense of relief when I am finally single again. Weird, right!? :?

I agree w/ princess_eab & Muirnea! 1. spending LOTS of time w/ my girlfriends 2. having guy friends and not feel guilty/have a fight about it 3. flirting, checking out guys 4. going clubbing! 5. sweet dilemma of dating around, no strings attached but nothing will replace the wonderful person I'm so privileged to call as my own... :hug:

I've never been not single, and i have to admit I do get sick of it every so often. But at the end of the day, it is what it is, and i'd rather be alone than with someone unworthy. The best thing about being single is that independence, you don't have to answer to anyone, you don't have to explain anything to anyone and you don't have to accomodate your life to fit someone else's. Also I like being able to have a few drinks with my friends and flirt with guys.

I'm not single anymore, but I always LOVED having my own place to go home to. It was all mine, the place I'd put together myself with my hard-earned money. I was very proud of that. I also loved that nothing moved. If I put it down, it was always exactly where I left it the next day.

since i haven't been single for years, i often think back to how my life was before i was engaged and i think that there are a lot of things that we take for granted when we're not in a relationship. i've learned that i'm really a loner -and that i REALLY like my space. but that's not something that i get much...oh well. i also like being able to do what i want with my friends without having to call home to let my man know that i'm going out and answer a lot of questions...

Hahahaha, afordster, lol, I agree, not having to explain things that are completely obvious and/or simple. Not having to check in and check with what someone else is doing, just doing whatever I want. Flirting of course. And not having to worry about trying not to flirt on accident to be respectful of the other person. More time with the girls, or just friends in general. Not having to look nice/shave etc. if you really don't want to. :-P Not having to compromise about ANYTHING!!! Woo! :D Yea for being single!!! :D

I liked being able to do my own thing whenever I wanted. I don't compromise myself for a man but I do like to be able to read magazines in bed all day if I wanted. I also don't like having to get dressed when I don't want to or do my hair. I can do that now though because we're married haha.

When I was single, many, many moons ago, I enjoyed the freedom. Truthfully, sometimes I miss that.

The sweet calm of living alone in my OWN bedroom! No fights - no fighting over chores or sex. Listening to the music I want to, staying out or staying in when I feel like it and not being made to feel bad about it either way! Hanging out with guy friends and being able to check out hot guys on the street! Having deeper relationships with girlfriends and traveling whenever I want to.

I'm single now, which sucks on occasion, HOWEVER, I do like being able to take off on trips whenever I want. And yes, being drama-free is sweet.

I can flirt with anyone, pick up guys, go out with who I want to, go out with my girlfriends and even my guy friends more often, I don't have to check in or compare plans for the weekend, and if I want to go away for a weekend with friends only, I don't have to deal with jealousy, anger and guilt trips. :)

sometimes the way men communicate is just so ... well inefficient. they can be truly stupid sometimes. It is nice to not have to take time to explain things you thought were obvious.

I don't like being single, but it's nice having the freedom to do whatever you want and not have to worry about things like getting pregnant or a STD. It sounds dumb, but I just don't want any more stress in my life!

I can do whatever I want! If I want to just take off for a weekend, I can. I don't have to answer to anyone but myself. I also have plenty of time to do all of the things I want to. :)
