There is a common belief that those who are single are searching for “their other half” and that singlehood is just a temporary phase. The single life is meant to be the unfortunate pause between relationships and is meant to be kept as short as possible. These beliefs, however, are not always true. Plenty of singles are perfectly happy to remain single and are not seeking any sort of relationship.
People may choose to remain single for a variety of reasons. They may have just left a relationship and want to take a break before they begin to seek out another partner. Others suffered a bad break up and have been turned off by the idea of relationships for the moment or permanently. Still others may have become disillusioned with the dating scene or the prevalence of people looking for “no-strings attached sex” in the current hook-up culture.
Some singles, however, have not been turned off by the idea of relationships by an outside source or bad breakup. Some of them just like the single life better. There are, after all, plenty of advantages that come with living the single life, and to them, they outweigh the advantages of a relationship. Here are six reasons some people would rather be single.
