I know at some point, we all want to find someone to be with. Even if you never want to get married, you still want to fall in love and have a companion eventually.

But being single is the f*cking tits. Seriously, being single has so many advantages, sometimes you have to wonder what's the point of being with someone in the first place? I mean, there are hands and vibrators, who needs someone anyways?

But the single advantages go way beyond orgasms. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want, and don't have to run your plans by anyone. Seriously, YOU DON'T OWN ME. I LOVE MYSELF AND I DON'T NEED ANYBODY ELSE.

Song lyrics aside, there are so many perks to being single. Once you read these 19 perks you're gonna be all like “ima dump my SO right now.” SINGLE LYFE IS THE BEST LYFE AND DON'T YOU FORGET IT.

Here are 19 big advantages of being single:


You have the option of focusing solely on your own happiness/future, without regard for how your decisions will affect someone else.


Not being dragged to things you don't want to go to.


You can decide to work or go to a party last minute and it isn't as big of a deal to cancel or move other plans.


It is cheaper financially for men. I know that a healthy relationship things are split pretty evenly eventually, but in the beginning men tend to pay for a lot of things (like dates). Times do seem to be changing and women are paying for the dates more often from what I can tell, but it can still happen.
