1. Your nights out are much more fun
If you want to go to an afterparty until 5am, who’s going to stop you? Want to accept a drink from that fit guy at the bar, guess what, you can. Far too many girls have their boyfriend waiting outside at two minutes past midnight where you get to dance until you can’t feel your feet and destroy 20 chicken nuggets with your mate. Winning.
2. Bed space. Need I say more?
I am more than content star-fishing in my super-kingsize bed without a guy snoring there every night. Sometimes it’s nice to pick and choose when you have a bed partner, not every night when you’re just not feeling it….buh-bye.
3. Total freedom
What happens if you get offered your dream job in Australia but you’ve just got a mortgage with your boyfriend? Dreams over. What happens if you get offered your dream job in Australia when you’re single? You better get your passport out.
4. Your dating possibilities are literally endless
So your boyfriend doesn’t like Thai food – but you love it. Say goodbye to romantic dates over a Massaman, it aint happening. However, if you’re single, you can eat Thai food every week with a different man if you like #TinderThai
5. Your energy is directed towards your work and friends
I’ll never forget being in floods of tears at my first proper job because my boyfriend was accusing me of cheating. What an absolute waste of energy that was, let alone making me look ridiculous in front of my boss. Relationships bring a lot of unnecessary emotions that could be put into growing your friendships and movin’ on up that career ladder. After all, life is meant to be fun right?
6. #Masterdating – trust me
Not only is it not good for us to be overly attached to people, but being alone with our own thoughts is genuinely healthy. It may sound like something out of Sex & The City, but go for a lovely dinner on your own or walk down to the park and look at the sun go down. It’s amazing how chilled it is.
7. Fewer arguments, less stress
Whilst you’re at Uni, do you really need a moody boy having a go at you for liking someones Instagram post? Let the stress go and focus on yourself, it’s a ridiculously important time for you, don’t let somebody else ruin it. Moreover, I can’t stress enough how much it ruins your day if you find out your boyfriends cheating on you – no thanks ☺
8. Holidays are now next level
Nobody likes going on holiday with the girl who’s calling her boyfriend every night, be present in the moment! Fancy skinny dipping in the Ibiza ocean whilst the sun comes up? When you’re single, aint nobody gonna stop ya.
9. Buy yourself a present at Christmas
When you’re a student, every penny counts and it’s all meant for you. Do you really want to spend your spiralling student loan on somebody else? Treat yourself girl, that aviator jacket has your name written allllll over it.
