If you don’t feel lucky to be single, then perhaps you’re just not thinking about it the right way. Yes, there are some great things about being in a relationship, which you might really miss when you’ve been single for awhile. Things like splitting rent and groceries with someone, making plans and doing things together, and of course the intimacy — these things are all enviable parts of a committed relationship. But relationships aren’t all sunshine and roses, any more than being single is all gloomy days and lonely nights. In fact, being single is awesome and a vital part of your personal growth. Here are three often-overlooked benefits that can help prepare you for your next relationship adventure.

You have complete freedom to do what you want, and with whomever you want. Enjoy this! Plenty of people in committed relationships will tell you privately that they miss it at least a little bit.
When you’re single, you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone. You can travel across country, take off for a weekend road trip adventure, or anything your heart desires without worrying about upsetting anyone or having to give them a reason. One of the best things about being single is that you can do what you want, when you want and however way you want. You have zero expectations you must live up to – no dates to go on or people to impress. You get to do you, in a judgment-free zone.
The singe life presents the perfect opportunity for you to do a little wandering and exploring. Learn about yourself and the world you live in. Understand how you relate to others and how they relate back to you.. Do a little soul searching and figure out what really makes you happy. That way, when the time is right and someone new comes into your life, you’re ready to move forward on a straighter, well-defined path toward a better relationship.
Taking advantage of being single while you can. This is the part of your life when you get to further develop your relationship skills and learn how to attract the person you want to share your world with. Milk it for what it’s worth!
