50 Reasons Why Being Single Can Be Flat-Out Wonderful

50 Reasons Why Being Single Can Be Flat-Out Wonderful

YYoIn the month of February, we spend a lot of time celebrating romantic love. But with Singles Awareness Day on February 15, we want to take a moment to acknowledge single people everywhere—and acknowledge why being single can be so amazing.

While there was once an idea that coupled people were happier than single people, more recent research shows that that gap is not nearly as wide as previously thought. In general, single people tend to be very happy. In fact, they're sometimes happier and healthier than people in relationships. Not too surprising, right? With that in mind, here are 75 reasons why being single is so great.
