People always ask me when are you going to get married? Do you have a boyfriend? etc. etc. I'm still single. I am not ready to take responsibility of a lot of things. What are the advantages of being single?

I am currently with somebody right now, but I had fun being single. For me the advantages of being single are: 1) no one tells you what to do, 2) you do not worry when you are with somebody else, specially if its just a close friend. - often times boyfriends get jealous when you are with a guy friend who just happens to be so close to you. 3) you could go out with friends anytime 4) your time with your family and friends wont be divided. 5) you are just so free to do whatever you want

Being single is being free. That's why I don't worry if I'm still single because I can do what I want and need to do. There's no pressure still having no partner because for me it can wait - it's not a race after all. I'm enjoying my life now and I believe that there's no other than can inspire me the most but my family.

Its all about freedom.My first best thing being single is that I can sleep late night and can wake up late during holidays.Can move on or party with anyone.No question & answers about any damn thing in this world? Wear anything which i like best.I guess thats why people get jealous with our single status & ask the same hell ques. when you are getting married? By the way Happy Single Mylotting.

There are also lots of advantages for being single. For one, you can do most of the things you want to do without considering the assurance or permission of a boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife. You can travel anywhere, anytime because you have no responsibilities for a spouse and children. You can decide alone on things. You have no one to argue with in terms of values in life.

Being single, you are taught to be independent. You have less things to worry about. You do what you want, when you want. Nobody controls your actions but yourself. You learn to be responsible because you can't blame your faults to other people.

The advantages of single is your still free. Still free to do anything, No one to get mad. Still able to flirt. Still able to meet other possible people to be with. Disadvantage is at the end of the day you can't call anyone your own.
