24 Reasons I've Loved Being Single for 24 Months

  1. 1.
    No one else influenced my college decision
    My long distance relationship with my German shepherd puppy has been difficult, however.
  2. 2.
    I don't need to share the bed
    Anyone who says they love falling asleep in someone's arms is a LIAR.
  3. 3.
    I don't have to worry about intimidating anyone with my success
    Ladies, it's never fun when your man feels threatened when you're killing it. I love competing with myself and not apologizing for it ✌🏼️
  4. 4.
    More money more problems
    Except less problems, because less birthday/Christmas/anniversary presents. I treat myself please and thank you.
  5. 5.
    I'm constantly learning about myself
    Like I hate confrontation and I'm perfectly capable of doing anything on my own-- except parallel parking.
  6. 6.
    I'm not held down to one person or one place
    The notion that I could leave tomorrow and go wherever I want makes me so happy.
  7. 7.
    No pants are the best pants
    Date night? So much better when I don't have to leave my bed and my pink pj shorts match the dress code.
  8. 8.
    My man crush list is longer than ever
    Spider-Man. Miles Teller. John Krasinski. Brendon Urie. Steph Curry. Shall I continue?
  9. 9.
    No awkward moments with his family
    There's nothing worse than sitting with the bf's dad watching the game when a Viagra commercial comes on. Or trying to smile through the pain of mom asking how her son treats you.
  10. 10.
    I have time to do the things I love
    Like cooking, reading, working out....and indulging in as many thin mints as I want.
  11. 11.
    I've gotten really good at flirting
    Recipe: 5 seconds solid eye contact, laugh, hair toss, then go talk to one of his friends.
  12. 12.
    I've gone on a lot of dates
    Free food!! Not to mention it improves your people skills-- and self confidence.
  13. 13.
    Eating all the garlicky food I want
    Don't even try to argue with me on this one.
  14. 14.
    I don't have to be on my phone all the time
    Because no one is texting me every ten minutes to see what I'm up to. "I'm watching KUWTK what do you NEED?"
  15. 15.
    Not having to shave
    My legs, among other things.
  16. 16.
    I eat whateverrrr I want
    Ice cream is its own food group and panera is the move every time.
  17. 17.
    Dancing alone is better
    No one can yell at me for stepping on their toes. "Stop leading!!!!" Plus my whip and nae nae have gotten really good.
  18. 18.
    I've become a better friend
    Sometimes friends come second when you're in a relationship. When I'm single my girls come first and I'm always there for them.
  19. 19.
    Getting hit on is super flattering
    Guys don't hit on girls with boyfriends. My self-esteem doesn't depend on compliments, but they sure don't hurt.
  20. 20.
    Jealousy ain't no thang
    Except when someone mentions Emily Blunt.
  21. 21.
    As before baes
    This is the time of my life where my studies come first.
  22. 22.
    I can get drink drank drunk
    Moscato? Certainly. Fireball? Of course.
  23. 23.
    I can sing in the car
    This is a very underrated perk to the single life. Try it.
  24. 24.
    More ME time
    I get sick of people so fast. If I want to spend an entire weekend staying in by myself, no problem.
