3 Main Ways To Make The Most Of Being Single 




There are three main types of relationships that singles can work to build that are not romantic.




You don’t have to spend all of your time trying to find a romantic relationship when you are single, even if that is what you may want. When you have the right friends around you, you can surround yourself with friends who share common values and goals. They will challenge you to become a better and more interesting person. Your friends will likely have similar interests as you.




You can spend it with your family. While no family is perfect, family is a natural community. You can do things with your family. It could be a weekly dinner. It could be a monthly phone or Skype call.



Community is good to have, but most of the people you may know in your neighborhood may not be friends. They will more likely be acquaintances. You can find it by going to places that you enjoy going to. It could be going to restaurants, bars, the gym, or small group events at a church. You can build a community around you built around your interests and values. However, most people you know in your community will not know you as well as your friends are family.




You can spend time focusing on your health. This will make you more attractive to a prospective partner. You can do simple things like exercising, going to the gym, and following a diet. When you focus on your health, you will feel better. You will also look better. This will make you more attractive to a prospective partner.




You can work to improve your financial situation. There are always ways to find ways to make extra money. You can work a side hustle. A side hustle could eventually become your main thing so you can leave your employer. Some examples of side hustles could be driving for Uber or Lyft or delivering food for UberEasts or GrubHub. You could also work to build your website and YouTube Channel.

You can also transition work from your current job to a job that pays better by improving your skill set. You could learn in-demand tech skills or trade skills. It could mean taking some time to take a course online, not necessarily through a university, to learn the skills. Learning a more technical skill or a skill that is in demand that employers are willing to pay more for will help to increase what you are paid. It will also make you more competitive in the marketplace.



A relationship-oriented single is primarily focused on finding a romantic relationship. This is only one of many reasons why people may be single.
