Saturday 22nd September marks National Singles Day and we definitely think it’s worth celebrating. Whether you’re single by choice or are on the search for your perfect other-half, being single can be wonderful, as our Bella Babes know. In fact, being single is actually good for you. This is a sign that you are good at being alone, which is something that a lot of people struggle with. Being happy in your own company, and not relying on someone else to make you feel good is a big achievement! Of course, being in a relationship can teach us many things, like the art of compromise and it can feel great to make another person happy. But this isn’t the only way to life a happy, fulfilling life, which is packed full of fun
So with this in mind, in honor of National Singles Day and in tribute to our single Bella Babes out there, we’ve rounded up some pretty epic reasons why it’s amazing to be single right now!
1. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want!
This is definitely our dream scenario. You don’t have to wait to eat until the other person is hungry, or compromise when it comes to choosing restaurants. You can eat what you want, when you want.
2. Live by your own rules
Like the above, you can live your life by your own rules. Exercise at 1am, binge watch reruns of Made in Chelsea on a Sunday afternoon, have friends stay over on a week night… the choice is yours.
3. Focus on your career
While of course, you can do this if you’re in a relationship, singletons have no ties at all, meaning they can take that job promotion on the other side of the world, without having to consider anyone else but themselves.
4. You don’t have to be a plus one
Think of all the awkward family weddings, events and celebrations you can miss out on! This means more time for you.
5. You’ll save a fortune on gifts
No birthdays, Christmas or anniversary gifts to save for, which means more money for clothes, shoes and tan. Win-win
6. No drama
While of course, not all relationships are negative, you’ll avoid the drama that comes with bad ones.
7. Your bed is your own
Star fish… spread eagle… lie whatever way you want and use as many blankets as you want without having to worry about someone else’s comfort.
8. Revel in the mystery of life
You never know what a night out on the town can bring. Sometimes being the only single one in a group of friends can be amazing. Watch your friends ooze with jealousy as you flirt and make your move.
9. You don’t have to hang around with their annoying friends
Which means you have tons more time to spend it with the people you truly care about.
10. You can listen to Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ on repeat
And not wonder whether you are being cheated on.
11. You still have the excitement of finding ‘the one’
The search is not over and that’s definitely exciting. You get to be in that thrilling, brand new relationship phase, while everyone else is already settled.
12. You can buy as much tan as you want
More time, more money and more nights out with friends mean you can definitely stock up on your favourite tan, without someone saying: “Not another one!”. While you’re searching for your other half, we’ve got your perfect tan match already lined up. Plus, our tans are super easy to apply so you definitely don’t need a helping hand. Shop online here.
