There’s no reason to be bummed about doing your own little thing.

In fact, the single life might just your best life. Don’t believe us? Just look at the perks:

You don’t have to argue over where you spend the holidays, meaning you always get the home cooking you crave and you don’t have to pretend to be excited to visit Arkansas.

And you have one less present to buy.

You don’t have to hear about someone else’s office drama.

You can sleep diagonally on the bed, which we all know is ideal.

You don’t have to wait to watch the latest episode of your favorite show until the two of you can do it together.

Every season is no-shave season.

It doesn’t matter when you choose to wear the llama panties your mom bought you.

Ditto for that super comfy but Mrs. Doubtfire-esque bra.

Absurd Tinder conversations are immediately screenshot and sent to your friends.

You can go into weekend hibernation without anyone knowing/ judging you.

But also you’re more inclined to go out and be social rather than hunker down for a romantic night in.

There’s no need to hide your obsession with Chris Evans for the sake of anyone’s ego.

Your cat can still be your main squeeze.

Nobody judges the giant shirtless Channing Tatum poster hanging over your bed.

Warner Bros.

Or your Beauty and the Beast toothbrush.

No one will force you to see Transformers if you don’t want to.

There’s no bae for your bestie to disapprove of or take away from your friend time.

Meanwhile, you don’t have to pretend to love hanging out with your so’s annoying former frat bros.

You can participate in a dance floor make-out if the mood strikes.

If you’re dating around or hooking up, you have hilarious stories to tell friends instead of tales of petty fights that they only listen to to be polite.

Now, that doesn’t sound so bad, does it?
