Why Guys Are Better Off Being Single In Their 20s

OK so while a massive generalisation across the board, there are those of you who will say what is below is total poppycock, however it isn't. Being single in a decade whereby you sculpt your career and goals for the future is the best decade of your life to be single. The temptations are endless and you should be able to taste them guilt free. Now I am well aware the are those of you out there who won't see eye to eye with me on this, but that's exactly why, you're stuck in the one thing I say you shouldn't be in. So do me a favour, meet me half way and try it out!...Here's why guys are better off being single in their twenties.

You will learn how to dress appropriately

You are at the age where your mother can no longer be responsible for your choice of clothing, however being single means you don't have to be in the position whereby the new lady in your life takes over. I'm telling you...she'll have you in those skinny jeans and salmon shirts. And I don't mean a kick ass t shirt with a salmon on the front. You sir will be walking around dressed in pink.


Lads holiday

Okay, I'm not saying you wouldn't be able to go on a guys holiday if you weren't single but you won't get the full enjoyment from it. She's hardly going to leave you off for two weeks in Magaluf with the lads who are all single without constantly checking up on you. You want to be able to let just ain't gonna be able to if you ain't single.



Go where you want

Ditto to the last point. You have so much more free time on your hands. Whether it's off for a bike ride to keep fit with the lads or using it anti socially to become the pyromaniac you always dreamed of your path is your own.



You can see whoever you want...Tinder ahoy

You can go on numerous dates with numerous different personalities rather than being stuck with one. Dating all round you doesn't make you a slut, what it also doesn't make you is naive. You get to explore what kind of person you would like to have by your side in the future and recognise what you're looking for. Rather than sticking with one person and realising in your mid thirties you were blinded by regular sex and that this person you've been with is the polar opposite of what you need.



At this stage of your life (well, after college anyway) your career is the number one priority and distractions can prove a hindrance to your progression.




Whether its playing or watching, you can do what you want. No more being made feel guilty for cancelling in order to watch the Arsenal game or to play that Junior B final the whole season has been building to be "you never spend time with me"...having spent all week with her.

Mo money, Less problems


You have way, way more cash to spend on yourself, make it rain...or who know's even save a few quid for the future.


You can have fake relationships in your head.

Like 5 minute ones on the bus with bus girl and then one with barista guy who makes your coffee. Or whatever floats your boat.


Making female friends is easier

You'll find it easier to talk to other females and not be judged. You may have had zero attraction to them in the first place but by the time a girlfriend is finished with you, you'll have undressed them with your eyes and had intercourse with your mind with them, and that's just saying hello to your neighbour.


You aren't accountable to anyone

You make mistakes, you only have yourself to apologise. Also, your mistakes are genuine and have no guilt trips attached to them...



Being alone is actually OK

You will learn to appreciate 'you time'. And learn that it's awesome. Netflix, gym time, tinder hunting, watching porn...the list is endless....endless!


You shall have 1 problem short of 100, but a bitch shall not be one.
