7 Reasons Why Being SINGLE is BETTER Than Being In A Relationship
7 Benefits Of Being Single
Despite what the rom-coms might have us believe, living the single life isn't always such a cakewalk. You eat your feelings in chocolate while watchingThe Bachelor, it seems like all of your friends are getting engaged and flashing their rings in your face (or newsfeed), you're tired of the annoyingly concerned looks you get from your grandma when you show up to another holiday without a steady boyfriend, and and I won't even get started on all the stark statistics about couples who are allegedly leading these healthy, love-filled lives.

2. You Have A Healthier Social Life
We've all had that one friend who ditched you for their newly-nabbed significant other. Annoying, right? Well, it turns out you may be better off unattached. It's no secret that couples can have a hard time making new friends and research shows that married people are less attentive to their family, friends, and neighbors. In fact, in aJournal of Marriage and Familystudy published last year, researchers found that both men and women spent less time with friends and family than they did when they were single. So don't ditch your girls on singles night at the karaoke bar!
