I recently wrote about how being married is awesome, but I wanted to also share why being alone and happy, is better than being with the wrong person.
Here are 5 reasons why it’s great to be single.
Make It Loud
You can blast the most hideous music ever and not have to worry about your partner complaining. Today, I heard El Debarge on the radio–some song from when I was a kid– an 80’s song. I got way too happy about it. That’s definitely something no dude would find hip.
You can flirt with whomever you want, whenever you want. Just as long as the person isn’t married. That’s just crappy. I mean, a little normal flirting is fine, but nothing heavy with anyone married, okay? Thanks.
You can make out with the pizza boy if you don’t mind some sweaty acne-faced dude, or go out with whatever chick you want, and not owe him or her anything at the end of the day.
If you choose to go out with the paperboy, you don’t owe him holidays with his family, or friday nights in with him watching sci-fi. You don’t have to pretend to like going shopping with the girl you’re just having a fling with. You don’t need to here about her silly friends.
Make it Funky Now
If you want to be wild in bed and don’t care if the person gets upset, you can. When you’re committed to someone if you do something to turn him or her off, you might not get sex for a whole month. Pull out the funky stuff. Who cares! Remember? No obligations.
You don’t have to buy anyone a birthday gift or spend hours scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas or anniversary gift. You my friend, get to buy yourself gifts. Or your kids, if you’ve got them.
No Shave/Short Hair/Whatever
If you don’t want to shave, or you want to rock a pixie cut,there’s no dude to say–‘Keep your hair long” or ‘Wax it.” If you want to wear the same stinky shirt and exercise pants to bed for a month, or you feel like being a manly man and letting your beard go, you can.
The world is your oyster.
Being single can be lonely and sex with one is not much fun after awhile, but at least you can blast your Devo or your Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch without getting made fun of for all of eternity…well at least not by a partner, but maybe me.
When a problem comes along (or a hot guy), you must whip it,
