Stressing out about your singleton status? It’s time for an attitude adjustment and a shift in your perspective. Being single can actually be pretty awesome, especially if you’re in your 20s and still have plenty of career planning to do, financial freedom to pursue, and friends to make memories with. Instead of panicking about being the last one in your group to post the latest engagement photo on Facebook, start seeing the positive side of being single. Here’s how you can make the most of these years – they just might be over before you know it.
Get some sexual variety.
Let’s just be frank about it; no need to be coy. Once you settle down and find The One, you may find yourself in a situation where you’re only going to be having sex with one person for the rest for your life. Kind of a scary thought, right? This is the time to live wild and free without worrying about upsetting a significant other or being labeled a nasty cheater. If you’re a man, you can explore exotic options like visiting luxury brothels like MissHeavens. Women can also benefit from this particularly fun aspect of the single life – start swiping on Tinder and get a taste for the wilder side of life while you can.
Use your free time freely.
Once you’re tied down, a large amount of your free time is taken up by being all loved-up with your significant other. Get ready for many a weekend spent browsing farmer’s markets, being dragged to movies you’re not especially interested in, and sitting outside dressing rooms waiting to be shown a parade of similar-looking tops. Some of those coupley elements can be fun, but there is something to be said for having the freedom to do absolutely anything you want with your time off. You can meet your mates without having to argue about it, get some quality alone time when you just want to Netflix and chill for real by yourself in your bed, and get involved in hobbies and sports that you enjoy without being pulled into someone else’s schedule and interests.
Focus on your career options.
When you don’t have a relationship to focus on, you often have more time to concentrate on other things. For many young people, this ends up being their career. There’s a real perk to being single when it comes to your work life – you have the opportunity to put in that overtime and focus your energies on work projects while others are wrapped up in relationship drama and spending time with their partner instead of working after hours. This factor alone could win you the promotion you’ve been chasing all year – as long as you knuckle down and focus. A strong financial future will only help you when you do decide to seek out that special someone.
Spend quality time with your friends.
We all know what happens when someone gets involved with a new sex relationship – they disappear from their friendship circle and ocassionally pop up at important events but then scurry back into their relationship hole at home. When you’re single, you have the time to really make the most of this precious time with the people you care about, whether that’s good friends or your family.
