Are You Better Off Single?

images (3)Everyone around you is getting into relationships. Cool, you think, but that doesn’t stop you from feeling like the odd one out. It’s weird being the fifth wheel in all your outings and even the relationship dramas are old, boring, and predictable. You did think about getting into a relationship too, of course – can’t say that none of us have ever not thought about that – but have you ever thought the single lifestyle would actually suit you better?
Here are 8 Signs that You’re Better Off Single:
1. You’d Prefer to Age Gracefully

Don’t get me wrong—good relationships make people glow. However, according to some studies, marriage also leads to less physical activity which means you could tend to gravitate towards having a less-fit body than you would have if you remained single.

2. You Want to Maintain Your Independence

Committed relationships cause us to become dependent on our partner, and there are a lot of great things to be said about that. However, single people are more resilient to both injury and disease. Experts are not sure what could be the factor with these findings, but some single men and women seem to endure hardships better when they are facing them alone.

According to the Journal of Marriage and Family, one particular study suggests that heart disease complications are lowest in both men and women who have never been married. And here’s the kicker: It is not the marriage that breaks your heart—it is the problems that go along with it, such as divorce, widowing and remarriage. In other words, if you marry the right person, you could have as healthy a heart as your single self. But if you choose poorly, your health will likely suffer. So just keep in mind that being single is not such a bad alternative.

4. Or, You Let Fear Pick

If you really don’t like being single, you may feel so much anxiety over your situation you overlook certain red flags and settle out of fear of being alone. When this happens, your chance of choosing the wrong partner skyrockets, and you may find yourself stuck in a string of bad relationships.

5. You’d Prefer to Stay Debt Freestay-out-debt-800x800

No matter how you look at it, when you combine the finances of two people, you also combine their debt. And more married people are in debt than single people! Just because one of you is good with money, it doesn’t mean that it will be enough to curb the other person’s bad habits.

6. You Prefer Your Own Company 

It has long been written that solitude is essential for discovering your own freedom and creativity. Many people can enjoy this kind of self-discovery with a partner, but some cannot. If you’re the kind of person who truly craves the spirituality of your own company, maintaining that commitment to yourself may result in a much happier life filled with more fulfilling memories.

7. You’d Prefer to Age Gracefully

Don’t get me wrong—good relationships make people glow. However, according to some studies, marriage also leads to less physical activity which means you could tend to gravitate towards having a less-fit body than you would have if you remained single.

 

 

8. You Like Sleepdownload (2)

While sleeping apart can save your marriage, it is not always an option for everyone. There are a lot of people out there dealing with sleep disorders, and it isn’t fun sleeping next to them. Studies show that the majority of us will sleep our best when we are completely alone (sans pets too). So, in some cases you may actually need to choose between romantic love or fantastic sleep.

 

9. You Like Keeping Touch With Friends and Family

For each relationship you start, you will loose two friends. It’s true! A lot of time must go into each relationship to  keep it going. And while some studies suggest that single people are more lonely than those in relationships, that is just not true. In fact, other studies suggest that couples in a committed (married) relationship spend much less time with friends and family than their single counterparts. Researchers suggest that this tendency in couples may have more to do with having less energy to give to other people, which makes sense, considering that love relationships take plenty of work.
