Today is Friday the 14th of February... (not that I needed to tell you that, am sure you can read a calendar..) and I guess you know what that means......yep

Now I have been contemplating for a while what approach to take with this post... It would be easy for me to write a post wallowing in self-pity about how long it's been since I was in a relationship and how it sucks to be single and how this day is just an over-commercialised crappy day that shouldn't need to happen to tell someone you love them... but instead I have decided to focus on 5 reasons it ROCKS to be single....

1. When it's only you at home, only you to cook for and only you to clean up after I only need to wash up really every 6 days. I have enough crockery and cutlery for 6 people, so it is so easy to often use just about everything in the cupboard before I really have to wash up!! **
Yep! That's me!!

2. I get to have the WHOLE bed to myself!! No fear of waking someone else up or bumping into them in the middle of the night! Can stretch the legs, keep the blankets on or kick them off without having to think about another person! Often I have 9 hours of blissful uninterrupted sleep! ahhhh.. **

3. I have full control of the remote control... I get to watch WHATEVER I like.. No fights over the remote, no being forced to watch crazy kids cartoons or man cave type shows!
Yep! Hard to see a con there!

4. I do what I want, when I want, with who I want and don't have to worry about anyone else! **

5. The toilet seat is never up! No fear of stumbling to the toilet in the dark in the middle of the night and falling into the bowel!
My Kinda Guy!

So there you have it! My 5 top reasons it ROCKS to be single. A friend of mine posted this to me on Facebook the other day and I also thought it was pretty cool and probably sums out how I am feeling this year as I go through a process of concentrating more on me and being the best me I can be!
(** These may also be reason that I HATE being Single)

Linking up with With Some Grace for FYBF...


  1. Awesome post Zita, hooray for you for looking up not down. You are dead right about sharing with a bear, not fun - oh hello couch, d'oh! I am envious of your dishwashing (and I assume laundry) pile too!

  2. Lol!!! I wouldn't swap my hubby for the world but some of these sound very very inviting!! Happy Valentines xx

  3. I used to be the same, I didn't care that I was single, I knew that one day I would meet someone worth leaving singleness behind for, that person I don't really mind fighting for the covers, or letting be in charge or the remote (makes me enjoy it when he is away), the person that helps with dishes, the person who learnt to put the toilet seat down. I met him and love him and wouldn't give him up but I never regretted being single at all. I was comfortable just being me and it sounds like you are the same.
