7 relationship dramas you don’t have to deal with when you’re single



It was fun rolling solo for awhile, but now you’ve been on your own for so long that you’re sorta sick of being forever single.

When the desire for a partner is overwhelming, just remind yourself of these 7 relationship dramas you don’t have to deal with when you’re not in a relationship.

Check them below!

1. You don’t have to put up with their lame friends

Few things are worse than giving up your spare time so you can spend time with your partner and their childish friends. Ugh. At least as a single, you can spend time with the people you actually want to be around rather than hanging out with lame-os out of obligation.

2. You don’t have to worry they’ll change

Nothing in life is guaranteed. Maybe you find yourself worrying that you’ll lose your job overnight. But chances are you don’t worry about your loved ones or BFFs waking up one day and saying they want to walk out of your life in the way that your partner could.

3. You don’t have to downgrade your dreams

When you’re single, you choose what you want to prioritize in your life. When you’re in a relationship, you need to make it one of your priorities if it’s going to thrive. The sad truth is that it will take some time away from your other endeavors.

4. You don’t have to fight all night

Couples fight—it’s part and parcel of healthy relationships. What’s not normal is fighting with the intent of hurting each other and turning things toxic, which can happen and when it does, it’s draining.

5. You can get up and go

One of the best things about being single is the freedom you have. If you want to travel to some exotic place, you can do so without first having to run your idea past your partner so that they know where you’re going and how long you’ll be.

6. You don’t have to be glued to your phone

Okay, so you don’t just text your partner—you have loads of friends you love to chat with via text. But let’s be honest: sometimes it feels like a huge chunk of those texts go to the new crush or partner you’re thinking about all the time. Without that relationship in your life and the drama of unread texts, you can do something more constructive with your time.

7. You don’t have to worry about his female friends

Yes, you know that they’re platonic. Yes, you’re reassured by your partner that he’s not interested in them. But you still can’t help but feel jealous of the other women in his life. Ugh
