    Ok so I've seen loads of lovey dovey threads and relationship loving threads, how about one that highlights the pros of singlehood?

    Hopefully anyone single reading will be cheered up if they're feeling down about it

    I'll start:

    It's great to not have to obsess over one person who, if you really love, has pretty much total control over all of your emotions (past experience)

    Chatting to numerous cute guys and getting their numbers without feeling guilty.
    Saying that, I don't want to do that anymore

    Your own bad experience I think, a good relationship shouldnt be like that.

    Not really. I meant it as in i loved him so much that if he was mardy with me for something it's all i'd think about and it'd get me really really down.

    You don't have someone who has to know what you're doing.

    You can chat to the opposite sex more freely without your other half thinking dodgy.

    You don't have to spend as much money.

    You have more time to concentrate on other things, such as studies if you're studying.

    I don't imagine there's much to cheer you up if it's just happened, but it does get better believe me

    When I first split up with my bf of a year I thought that i'd never get over it, but i'm getting there, and the things in this thread do make me feel better about being single now (although they wouldn't of then).

    Being single is awesome!
    -Don't have to be obsessed about why the other person isn't texting you back.
    -You can go out with your friends whenever you want.
    -Your boyfriend/girlfriend doesn't take up huge amounts of your life.
    -You don't have a person putting pressure on you to quit bad habits you secretly enjoy.
    -No crying over arguements.
    -And you gain confidence knowing that you can be on your own and deal with it!

    I have been single for a week now (after a 2 year relationship...) and I'm starting to feel a bit more optimistic about not being in a relationship now...

    - You don't have to suffer him turning into a slobbering wreck whenever Britney Spears/Miley Cyrus/Lily Allen/whoever comes on the tv :rolleyes:
    - You can look. And flirt. And touch, if you want.
    - You don't have to forever think about someone's feelings - you can do what you want, when you want
    - You don't have to go and see bands you don't like with him... :ninja:
