It’s Friday night. You call up your best friend. The best thing to do would be to get hammered wasted at the Local Pub and talk about the week, right?!
“Hey Bro. Can’t make the Pub tonight, I’m hanging out with the girlfriend.”
You’re a Single Man
So you’re single. Don’t worry, I feel you. And so do other single men out there. “I am single” you say to yourself, because that is reality, it just is. What you choose to make of it is up to you, because there’s a positive and a negative to every situation. You can choose to bask in the glory of being single, spending your free time meeting new people, or you can sit at home on your friday nights playing video games. The flipside is not always the easiest.
While dwelling upon the negatives, it’s not the easiest thing in the world to be single. Especially when it seems like “everyone around you is finding someone, but you.” This isn’t the truth, but now that you’re focused on the negatives (you being alone) it seems like you are the ONLY one that feels this feeling (you’re alone, right!?) But hey, it’s not the end of the world. Besides it’s not like you’ll be single forever, just single for now. Right now is the present moment, and you should be embracing it!
This was a conversation I had plenty of times with a buddy of mine, which sparked this post. It simply went like this…
“Man I haven’t been laid in months!” says my buddy.
“Oh dude, tell me about it!” I replied.
Oh yes, the sexual frustration talks of single people. We’ve all been there at one point or another. Until you decide to take yourself seriously, the perils of single life can be seemingly devastating. Most people aren’t fortunate enough to have found their passion, so being single means that their free time is spent alone, unproductive.
Now first things first, I’m not writing to give you the step by step process on how to get laid. Nor am I going to share with you my sexual frustrations, that won’t be necessary. I will however share with you 3 awesome benefits of being single to survive while you’re on your own. Being single isn’t easy; however it can be awesome and simple at the same time.
“Jo Mac, what are the 3 Awesome Benefits of Being Single?”
- You have more free time.
Dude/Dudette, you’re single. I’ll say this as simply as I can…GO OUT AND HAVE FUN! Don’t use this time to mope and envy those who are in relationships! Use this time to enjoy activities by yourself. Enjoy the company of your friends and family, who probably misses your company! Also this is the perfect time to meet new people. You now have so much more time to do pretty much whatever you want with whomever you want. Use it to your advantage.
- Upgrade yourself for the better.
Since you have more time, use it in upgrading yourself. Hit the gym (you probably gained some love chub), learn a new language, read books that interest you (put down that PS3 controller and read!), go travelling, learn how to dougie, clean your room, get a new haircut style… the list is endless! Upgrade yourself to what your heart desires. When you upgrade yourself for the better, the quality of your life becomes better, including the women/men that you attract. Having skills and abilities makes one valuable. The more valuable you are, the more “high value” people you will attract into your life, friends and lovers.
- Flirt (guilt free).
I’m a huge believer that we are all natural flirts. And what’s the fun in being single if you don’t flirt. While you’re upgrading yourself, you’ll be exposing yourself to new experiences, knowledge and people (specifically the opposite sex). This is your opportunity to mingle with anyone, anywhere. YOU… ARE… SINGLE! Flirt with the cutie you’ve been eyeing at work, in the gym, at the coffee shop, in the airplane!
Being single isn’t the end for you bro/sista; it’s actually a new beginning and a new chapter that you can write to your liking. It’s a new opportunity to focus and fall in-love with yourself.
Not only will you get a chance to get to know yourself on a personal level, but you will also get a chance to meet new people and gain new experiences. Being aware of the 3 AWESOME Benefits allows you to progressively move your life forward. This is an article you can read, deciding to take the first step towards self – betterment, and optimization of your single life.
