11 Reasons Why Being Single Doesn’t Suck

Is it just us or is everyone (even Stephen-obsessed Lauren Conrad) getting engaged? Doesn’t it feel like there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t see another couple announcing that they’re about to be hitched on Facebook! Here are 11 hilarious GIFs to make you feel better about the single life.

1. So much time is spent when dating- from hours of texting and talking on the phone to making time for weekly dates (if not more!). Just think about being single as an opportunity to finally take that spin class, study for the LSAT or catch up on Revenge! Use all that saved up time by being productive and  investing it in the most important person in your life- YOU.

2. You get to make out with anybody you want… except the lumberjack with the beard. Please, anyone but him.

3. Relationships are not only time-consuming, but money-burning, too. Being in a relationship is expensive. Dinners out, weekend getaways and gifts can really add up. If you’re single, you’re definitely rolling in the dough compared to your taken girlfriends.

4. Count that cash and go on a road trip! Celebrate your single life by hitting up Palm Spring’s famous Ace Hotel or go glamping in Santa Barbara with your best girlfriends. No boys, no problem! Going away for the weekend is more fun without worrying about someone back home.

 5. Alone in your bed means no pants, no makeup and no shame when you have the craving for a large burger at 2am. Shaking your ass in front of the mirror is also encouraged.

6. You aren’t “that girl.” With a boyfriend comes problems. With problems comes endless bitching to your friends. With endless bitching to your friends comes your friends no longer wanting to speak to you. Be single or save your moaning and groaning about your incompetent boyfriend for your diary.

7. Excluding yourself from a relationship now will keep you available for the right guy out there when he comes along. “We’ve been dating since college.” Ew. “We’ve been dating since high school.” Even worse. “We’ve been dating since I finally found someone I liked.” Nailed it.

8. And if you’re not prude… That’s ok, too. No judgments made.

9. Not being someone’s girlfriend means freedom. You are free from the obligations to check-in with your significant other to let them know who you’re with or where you’re at.
x
10. Because your boyfriend will never live up to your expectations and look like him.
x
Or him.
Or him.
11. To put it simply: With writing 10-page papers, slaving away at work from 9-5, keeping up with your favorite fashion bloggers and finding the best workouts on Pinterest, we really can’t fit a significant other in our already-filled leather planners.
