Staying Single as a New’s Year Resolution
It is the time of year when we reflect on the past year and make resolutions for the new one. If you are not involved in a relationship you may want to make the resolution to stay single for the year. From needing more focus on to work on something special to gaining confidence in yourself, there are many reasons to take a year off from relationships. Here are some good reasons to make staying single your number one resolution.
Take Care Of Yourself
You can use that time to focus on some self improvement. Take some yoga classes or join a gym and get into great shape. Take that language class you have always wanted to take. Enrol in some courses that will help you advance in your career. Without having anyone else in your life to answer to, you can schedule your days however you like. No one is going to be demanding your time, so if you have classes three nights a week, it does not affect anyone but you.
Enjoy Your Money
Go ahead, buy that outrageously expensive body lotion or buy yourself a designer dress without having to justify your purchases. Once you are married, you have differences in spending and debt, and you lose some freedom about making whatever purchase you want. While you are single you can do whatever you want with your money.
See The World
Being single allows you to take any trip you want for as long as you want. There is no one else’s interests to consider or schedule to contend with. Take that culinary tour of France, or make plans to join a single group that goes on adventure tours like scuba diving or mountain biking. Take advantage of being alone to expand your horizons literally. It is much easier to plan that dream vacation when you do not have obligations like family or a significant other.
Foster Your Friendships
Once women get married, studies show that they spend much less time with their friends than when they were single. Singles usually have great bonds with their friends and spend a lot of time socializing with their gal pals. You are not relying on only one person for your social life, you can have friends from different parts of your life. On Friday night you can head to a club with your work mates, and go shopping with your best friends on Saturday. Use this year to fuse those friendships and help you stay social at the same time.
Enjoy Your Space
Enjoy sleeping alone in your bed and not sharing sleep space. If you like a room cold when you sleep, you do not have to worry about your partner turning up the heat because he cannot take the cold. Go ahead and eat crackers in bed and read that best seller until two in the morning. Wake up at noon with no one bothering you. Your space is your own. Enjoy it.
Embrace the idea of staying single as a resolution this New Years and get to know the real you.
