If you’re one of the relationship-oriented singles on the planet who craves connection — Life can seem lonely sometimes. But fear not, because you’re far from being alone. According to PRI.org, 50.2 percent of American adults are single. So when you’re ready to partner up, there’re plenty of relationship-oriented singles out there.
Maybe you’re one of 124.6 million single Americans and you’re one of the relationship-oriented singles who’re getting ready for romance— I want to share some surprising ways you can lead the most fulfilling life before you’re dating someone.
How Relationship-Oriented Singles Can Thrive
Being In A Relationship Doesn’t Mean You’ll Feel Connected
If you end up being in an exclusive relationship with the wrong person — You may wish you were alone. If you are with someone just because, you may feel lonely every single day if you rush into a relationship. I hope this isn’t the case because you deserve an incredible partner when you are ready. There’re some things you can do in the meantime to live a fulfilled happy life.
While you’re single, it’s the best time to get clear on what you want in your perfect partner. Clarity in what you want before you meet your soul mate will help you manifest the right relationship — Not the wrong one with non-relationship oriented singles that are looking for a hookup.
Guilt Free Flirting While Being A Top Notch Negotiator
When you’re in a serious relationship flirting with others, it might not be OK with your next partner. Friendly flirting can be great for women in business and in negotiating. According to a study by UC Berkeley, women who use their feminine charms aka flirting can help females get bargains from men.
So if you’re going to buy a used car, don’t be afraid to use a playful tone, a light touch on a seller’s arm (if it’s a he) and a flirty smile. It could save you some big bucks.
You’ll Get The Best Sleep Out Of Any Demographic
Amerisleep surveyed 2000 people and they found that single people sleep better than those who are married. If you’re one of the relationship-oriented singles, count your sheep and your sleep blessings before you’ve got a snoring partner lying next to you.
When you meet relationship-oriented singles down the road— Meditating and taking a shower before bed are two habits of the best sleeping people. Those who get the most sleep rate themselves as being perfectly happy. While those surveyed who got the least amount of sleep and said they were completely unhappy.
Embrace your queen size bed and all the space you have to yourself. Plenty of rest can improve your memory, how many birthdays you have and also your productivity.
You Have More Time To Focus On Your Friends
Good relationships are good for your health. Singles seem to have more robust non-romantic relationships. There is lots of research showing that singles are better at keeping connections with friends, neighbors, and family than those who are coupled up.
According to Gary Lewandowski, a Monmouth University psychology professor, “Being single is infinitely better than being in a bad or unhealthy relationship.”
In closing, keep your bed cozy, your shower hot, your friends close and love yourself to the moon and back every single day.
Lots of Love,
