1) You Would Rather Hang With FriendsYou love your friends and see them as much as possible. If you don't feel the need to change the way you interact socially with other people, a significant other might complicate things. Consider this, the time you spend with your friends will now be split among your new partner, and his/her friends. You might only see your buds a 1/3 of the time you did before. Are you ready for that?
#2 It's All About YouSometimes the best thing for your future relationship is that present day you focuses on itself. Sure, you may be out of college, but are you actually in the "real world" yet? Are you happy with your life, or are you hoping a relationship will fix that for you? If so, you're not ready. Be fair to your next bf and only put yourself out there when you know you're ready.
#3 Career First
Whether you're in college or just out of grad school, it's paramount that you keep focus on your goals and ambitions. Obviously, success is relative, but you'll know what's right for you.
#4 Playing The Field
Has it ever occurred to you that perhaps you're not ready to pick just one? This is a completely fair, and all to often never asked question. But if you're not ready to settle down, take this time to date around and figure out what it is you are looking for.
#5 Move Around As You Please
One of the less hyped benefits of single life is the ability to move around whenever you like. This is all 100% up to you. You'll appreciate later on in life. :)
#6 Love Hurts
Lets be honest, for every happy couple in love, there are two people elsewhere miserably heartbroken. We're not saying it's not worth the reward, simply that you should be prepared for the risk as well. It's not all rainbows and kisses.
#7 What About Some "me" Time?
From bubble baths, to pigging out on pizza while watching Golden Girls in bed, we all have our sacred rituals we can only enjoy alone. Consider this, when you finally settle down with Mr./Mrs. Right, your alone time will slowly decrease, culminating in the eventual replacement by family time. Enjoy it while it lasts.
#8 It's Just Not For You
Finally, you may just wake up one day and realize that no matter how much you've been told differently, relationships are not for everyone, and certainly not for you. Maybe our role as human beings is evolving. With the world's over population, is it really so bad if not everyone procreates? Maybe single life is simply a new form of commitment. Perhaps in this brave new world, one can commit to happiness, self-love, and independence, without the fear of judgement.
