Single Life: What Are The Perks?

Updated on March 12, 2013

The Single Life

It doesn't matter whether you've chosen to remain single or it's just that you haven't been able to get together with any worthwhile types. If you're out there, you're out there. Even it you don't pursue others you've got to deal with going places and doing things. In a world where everyone wants you to "couple-up" it can be tough sometimes. But, if you're in graduate school or something and you need to focus on yourself basically 24/7, how can you really do a relationship justice?

So you see people, you work your game, and you live single. That means something different may happen at dinner time each night. It just depends on where you are and who you're with.You may grab a slice or go out for a salad, or just get something at home. You have no expectations on what you "should" be doing at any given time because you follow your own schedule rather than that of another. It's not bad. It can be good. Like after you eat, you might sit down and get some work done at the computer. Whereas, if you're with someone, you often feel as though you need to watch the news or something normal and regular like that.

You can get up, go out and do pretty much anything you choose if you're single. You never have to account for your whereabouts. You never feel rushed. And you find other people that have found themselves single, are around most of the time. They're up to something. There really is always something to do. All you have to do it get on the social media and you'll wind up doing something you hadn't planned on earlier that day. It's great to live this way. It's new, and interesting and fun. That's why young people don't get married right after high school like they did long ago.

You don't have to be young to enjoy the single life. Many newly single people live exciting lives despite the fact that they had been in some type of long term relationship. Or, maybe they've just never found that one person who does it for them. If you've found yourself in a late in life single state don't despair. There are many ways to connect today. One very popular way is online dating. My own son met his wife on the computer. You could also meet people at old fashioned places like organized teas, dances, and parties.You don't have to be on the prowl, you just have to be open to talking with a lot of people about a lot of things. You'll eventually end up finding lots of friends who love the same things you do and you can all be single together.

      It's just like Charlie Sheen said to little Jake on "Two and a Half Men."

      He said "Jake, who is the best looking girl in your class? Call her up and ask her to the dance because all of the other guys are afraid to." You just never know what could happen unless you put yourself out there and test the waters so to speak.

      Have fun,

      Many people are self conscious. I often find myself thinking "I am not good enough for her". I am glad that people keep encouraging me to meet new people. Still, like Lisa says, I like the freedom of setting my own activities and schedule.

      I do not mind it but in today's culture your next date can be just on click away.

      Nice hub! Your statement, "You don't have to be on the prowl, you just have to be open to talking with a lot of people about a lot of things." pretty much says it all! With over 7 billion people on the planet being single or married is a "life-style choice". It's up to the individual as you stated to be (open).

      So much of finding "the one" comes down to how many options a person gives themself.

      Lets face it we tend to "exclude" rather than "include" when it comes to finding mates. If a person says "the one" must be of the same race that eliminates billions of people right off the bat! Someone may do the same with religion which removes billions more, and distance comes into play... must reside in my same country, state, or town...etc All these billions of people eliminated as dating options before we get to height, weight, education, income, hobbies, and sense of humor. Finally we say our friends and family must also like him or her.

      Is it any wonder why some people find it so difficult to find someone? Automatically excluding billions of people really does narrow down one's options. Being "open" is what keeps life from becoming boring or lonely. Nice hub! voted up!
