Sure, being in a relationship has its benefits. There’s the whole love factor, followed closely by companionship, commitment, support, affection and having a date for every wedding/party/holiday gathering/Saturday night. Plus, you don’t have to deal with a pushy grandmother or outspoken great-aunt asking why you’re still single at Thanksgiving. And can we discuss the awkward set-ups with your boss’s best friend’s nephew? Yeah, being in a relationship has its perks. But guess what? So does being single. Turns out, despite what Valentine’s Day cards try to tell you each year, being single is actually pretty awesome.
