I was talking to a friend a few days ago... and she said "why are you single?"
and i thought "is that a rhetorical question or does she really want an answer?"
but before i could coin an appropriate response she said "you should hurry and just do it, just do it... you are just being choosy and you need to stop being so choosy... being single is so wrong!"
"whoa whoa whoa! hold it there" i said, "where is all that coming from? being single is not wrong dear, infact i think it can be quite awesome and has got its many benefits!" she shrugged and said " i dont know of any!"
the conversation ended shortly after that...
but on and off, I have been thinking about the benefits of being single... the "pros and pros" and now i have decided to write a few here...share with y'all... now i'm not saying there are no cons to being single, but today i am focusing on the "pros"
and i have numbered everything "1" cos its all about being single.
1. you can have more than one man fussing around you
1. and you can do breakfast, dinner or lunch with any man that catches your fancy
1. you can be the "girl" in so many people's lives! including your dad! (and not in a dating sense!)
1. the money you earn is all yours!
1. you dont need to justify how you spend it or what you buy
1. there are no in-laws to manage
1. you have the bed to yourself
1. and have someone in it, only when you want for as short as you want...lol
1. you are not accountable to anyone else but yourself - you can up and go wherever you like whenever you like (and i have done that a few times)
1. your time is yours, not under some "new management"
1. you can work late and not feel guilty or have to apologize or negotiate
1. yes your life is not a constant dialogging or negotiation
1. you can be as selfish as a cat
1. you cook or buy food only cos you are hungry... there is no other mouth to consider
1.your life is exactly that - yours!
feel free to contribute to this list
remember the numbering is "1"
