We have read a ton of times before that being single is actually great. You get to take control of your own time and you can focus more on the things you want to do, instead of thinking about another person. But social psychologist Bella DePaulo from the University of California has uncovered real benefits of being single! (via MyDomaine.com)

In her book Singled Out, the author studied 814 single and married people. In her presentation before the American Psychological Association, she emphasized her findings, further giving us proof that being single is actually beneficial for all of us, so there's no reason to be ashamed of it! 

  • Singles are more self-reliant and motivated compared to people in a relationship.
  • Singles are more likely to develop and grow as individuals, because they learn more about themselves and have set goals for themselves.
  • Singles are more connected to their parents, siblings, friends, and co-workers. 

Amazing, right? But we're not telling you to stop dating. We're simply telling you to enjoy this time of your life because once you're in a relationship, you will have less time for yourself.
