Why Women Who Stay Single for Long Periods of Time Are the Happiest


When it comes to dating, intelligent women are as picky as it gets. They’d rather wait for the right person to come along, than rush into a relationship due to societal pressure. According to a recent poll, more and more women are choosing to stay single and enjoying their own company. The reason is simple — they feel happier. In our society, being single is often synonymous with being sad and lonely, which is not the case at all. Women who are not in relationships are happier than the committed ones.

1. They have more time for themselves.

Women in relationships often complain about not having any time to themselves. They are always either looking after their partner or worrying about their kids. However, when you are single, you have all the time in the world to yourself. Get that manicure done or go to that concert you’ve always wanted to go to; YOU are in charge of your life.

2. There’s no pressure to meet your partner’s expectations all the time.

Remembering your partner’s birthday, getting them something for Valentine’s Day, planning unique getaways for the 2 of you, always be your perfect self from head to toe — the list goes on! Relationships are a lot of work and can get overwhelming at times. On the other hand, when you are single, you don’t have to dress to impress. You do everything at your convenience, which naturally keeps you away from stress.

3. They focus on their career and discover what they want.


Most of the time, if not always, women end up giving up on their hopes and dreams when they get into a serious relationship, and this happens for multiple reasons. They try to keep everyone around them happy by sacrificing their happiness. On the other hand, single women are carefree. They are ambitious and able to focus better on achieving their goals. They have their priorities straight, which is why single women are more successful and happier.
