10 Reasons It's Great to Be Single ...


I used to get so tired of my girlfriends feeling sorry for me when I was single. I’d have to field their annoying questions about my lonely weekend, or worse, have them try and set me up on unwanted, unsolicited blind dates. I appreciated their concern, but I was happy to be single! Here is my list of the ten reasons it’s great to be single… and you’ll miss most of these when you’re off the market, trust me!

1. You Get All of the Hot Water

Is there anything worse in the morning than getting in the shower and realizing you’re running out of hot water before you’ve even rinsed outyour shampoo? Sharing a bathroom means sharing the shower, which also means sharing the hot water. The only solution I’ve found is to get up earlier than your sweetie and getting in the shower first, which means he’ll get the cold water!

2. You Don’t Have to Shave Your Legs Every Day

Unless it’s the middle of summer and you’re wearing a bikini every day, there’s no reason you need to shave your legs every day, is there? That is, unless you’re sharing your bed with someone who might complain about brushing up against your somewhat prickly legs… who needs that? It takes ages to shave your legs… and if you’re single, you can skip a day or two without any comments from the penis gallery.

3. You Can Have Cereal for Dinner and Pizza for Breakfast

I love having cold cereal for dinner, especially while reading a book. When I was single, I could eat whatever I wanted at mealtimes without comment, and I could read at the table without feeling rude. Sure, conversation with your sweetheart over dinner is nice, but sometimes I miss Frosted Mini-Wheats and “The Devil Wears Prada.” And hey, what better way to have pizza than to have it all for yourself right (no matter what time of the day)?

4. It’s Cheaper

When I was single, I had money to spare. I spent a lot less on groceries, dinners out, and movies. I may have spent a tiny bit more on shoes, but… well, I had a lot more disposable income.

Every time I bring home a pair of shoes, my husband asks the same question, “How many pairs ofdesigner boots do you need?” I need them all! When I was single, I never had to explain that…

6. The Closet is All Yours

No matter how much you love your sweetheart, he is still taking up closet space. VALUABLE closet space you could be using for your stuff! I look at my husband's oxfords and dress pants, which he only wears once or twice a year, and I wonder why it can’t be folded or hung somewhere else, so there’s more room for my skirts and cocktail dresses

7. The Bed is All Yours

There’s something decadent about having an entire queen or king sized bed all to yourself. You can spread out, lie diagonally, kick the covers off, or wrap yourself in them like a cocoon. That is, unless you have to share your bed… and then you have to be considerate of someone who will probably spend half the night snoring and the other half stealing the covers…

8. You Can Date around

If you’re single, you can havefun dates with whomever you want, whenever you want, without feeling guilty, and without worrying about breaking anyone’s heart. There are so many wonderful men out there, and so little time! If you’re single, you get to date them all!

9. The Seat Stays down

It’s the middle of the night, and you’ve just stumbled into the bathroom for a tinkle… then you fall in… eek! When you’re single, the toilet seats goes down and stays down. Also, you won’t be finding any icky little hairs all over your bathroom…

10. You Get to Keep Your Name with No Comments

I love my last name and when I married my husband and I had a big argument over me wanting to keep my last name. To make him happy, I took his last name, and I regretted it. To men, it may not seem like a big deal, but they have no idea how difficult it is, and how disconcerting it can be, to change your name.

See? There are so many reasons it’s greatto be single! These are just a few of them, and I’m sure there are more! Are you single? What do you love best about being single? Please let me know!
