When you're single you can do whatever you want. You don't have to find out what someone else feels like eating for dinner, you don't have to watch football when you'd rather be checking out the latest episode of Glee and you can go wherever you want without having to let someone else know. When it's just you, you have the freedom to be totally independent and make choices based entirely on your own desires.
When you're in a relationship, there often aren't many opportunities for alone time. Just you, a glass of Merlot and a great book, or time for a solo bubble bath surrounded by scented candles. Having a guy around limits your chances for solitary activities. But if you're single, you can take advantage of getting back the time that should just be for you - and no one else.
Often, when we get attached to a guy and things start to get serious, we trade our social life for our, ahem, sex life. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially at the start of a new relationship, but if you're always putting your guy first, your friendships can suffer. Being single means lots more time with your BFFs!
