Unfortunately, we live in a society that places a premium on happily-ever-after, so it can be tough to block out the feeling that you’re the only single person in town. 

If you are single, don't sweat it for a second, just remember it’s always okay to be single! Here are some benefits of remaining single.

1. You can practice complete independence
If you want to prove to yourself that you are self-reliant, then stay single for a longer time. You will be trained to decide on your own, go home alone, and cook for yourself. Also, you become stronger since you do not have to count on anyone to comfort you whenever there is a problem.

2. You realize that you do not need a partner to complete you
As you get to love yourself more and try many things by yourself, you soon realize that it is possible to be happy even if you are single. The truth is, you do not need anyone else to complete you. You are already complete on your own, and you just need to find your purpose and live your calling to feel fulfilled.

3. You get more chances of meeting better potential partners
Although no partner is perfect, at least you have more chances to meet the best person for you. How many relationships have been torn apart by cheating just because the other half of the couple met someone else and realized s/he should have waited a bit longer before committing to a relationship?

4. There is no one to monitor you 24/7
One of the nuisances of being in a relationship is having an around-the-clock bodyguard-sometimes personal, sometimes virtual. If you are single, there is no one to report your whereabouts to. You do not have to update anyone about the happenings in your life. You simply live life on your own terms.

5. You are free to spend time with your friends, especially those of the opposite sex
Being in a relationship limits your bonding time with friends, especially those from the opposite sex. On the other hand, being single allows you to guiltlessly spend time with them since you are not afraid of someone getting jealous. 

6. There is no drama for heartbreak
Once you are not committed to anyone, there are zero chances of having a heartbreak. You save yourself the stress and worry over your partner's actions.
