15 reasons why being single is the best thing that can happen to you

Our Bollywood movies have always associated the state of being single to boredom, and subsequently a yearning to have the perfect partner. While yearning for your soul mate is a natural process, given the fact that our hormones like to play havoc at times, boredom is something the coolest singles in town never experience. Do we really need to depend on someone else for our happiness? Hell, no!

1. Enjoy your social life to the fullest

Singles enjoy their social lives without any boundaries. They are not obligated to stick to just their special one, during the entire event or trip. They can mix and mingle with others, and have hell lot of fun. Heck, a bit of healthy flirting just makes the day even more enjoyable.  Also, you don’t have to choose between your friends and lover, and you can spend your entire week just partying with your friends.

2. Date a random girl/guy without feeling the pang of guilt

Now that you don’t have that extra emotional baggage, you obviously can spare some time for that special thing you’d always wanted to do. Be crazy, be innovative, and let your hair loose. Learn Parkour, or master the art of Tai Chi, or learn belly dancing, or just go for the simple muffin making lessons.

4. Forgot to wax? Who cares!
