The best thing is to be able to do exactly what you want to do whenever you want to.

One thing I liked about being single was not having to worry about someone else, really.

I mean, I always have to consider my friends and family but suddenly, I have to worry and give consideration to this other guy. Which can be a little weird and at times, frustrating.

But then, being attached and being single both come with their good points and bad points. Depends on how you see it, I guess.

The best part is to look at all the hotties and not get yelled at!! eheheh

You have more freedom then you do when you have a serious relatioship, but I took that commitment and I was ready and I am very happy, sometimes I miss things, but not too often.

The best things about being single?

You can order the pizza the way you want it without having to negotiate doing half with anchovies and half without.

You can be as bitchy as you want for no reason at all and no one else has to put up with it.

You can listen to the same song (or CD) 500000000 times in a row without driving anyone else crazy.

You get ALL THE BLANKETS!

You can smile and feel smug when your friends tell you about all the problems they're having in their relationships.

There's never a disagreement over what movie you're gonna go see.

You can be autonomous and gorgeous and free and make everyone wonder "gee, why does that person seem to be radiating so much enthusiasm for life? wow, I wish I was like that." (You can do this when you're *in* a relationship too, but a lot of people forget that you can do it when you're not in one.)

I'm definitely with Hanne on the blanket one.

Geez..I hate sharing my blanket. My guy can go get his own.

And my pillow. I'm so obseesive I hide it in the cupboard when someone is sleeping over in my room. I don't want them to grab it.

It's good to be single sometimes, beacause you can flirt and be interested in other guys without fear of ticking off your boyfriend. Plus, you can go out with youre friends without having to look good for somebody. And you don't have to worry about making sure you call him on time and you don't have to be tied down.~ Saves alot of emotional stress sometimes, too.

oh, soo many..

*being able to flirt and chill with any guy you want
*not having to deal with wondering where he is + who he's with or vica versa
*not getting upset over stupid little fights or over things he said/you said
*getting to sleep at a normal hour (instead of trying to figure out a way to say 'i have to go' on the phone)
*being able to just relax in your scrubby weekend clothes rather than getting dolled up every weekend
*not stressing if you don't hear from him in a day...
*not having to or even considering bailing your friends
*having enough brain cells to concentrate on all sorts of subjects (like school work! )

etc, etc, etc
