It’s time to take stock, after all this time we’ve watched happily married couples, best friends, partners in crime and what not live together under one roof. We all know how much easier it is to get through the fall blues, breakups, hard days at work, and whatever other challenges life throws at you when you have a free shoulder to cry on. We know that, right?
So when someone asks the question, “What’s the advantage of living alone?” it’s a perfect time to point out how nice it really is. At the very least, the joy of simple things like never having to wait for a bathroom or having full control over the heat and air conditioner remote. Here are some of the perks of living when you don’t have to share a roof with anyone:
- Every single item in your house is exactly where you left it the last time you used it. If you live in a mess, it’s your own mess. You don’t have to clean up after someone else, and you don’t have to make someone else clean up. If you choose, you can leave all your dishes in the sink, which can stay there even for a week. And this will not be a problem for anyone.
- It’s quiet. You don’t have to deal with people and their problems.
- When you get home, that food you’ve been thinking about all day will be there. And even more! If you want, you can eat waffles with blueberry jam for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and no one will judge you.
- You can walk around in your underwear or no clothes and go to the bathroom with the door open.
- You can take a nap for a few minutes on the couch and have the peace and quiet to do so.
- Dieting is 1000 times easier. When you decide to follow a diet, you won’t buy junk food and you won’t live with someone who buys another type of food and tempts you to eat it.
- You can do whatever you want without considering anyone else first. You can even talk out loud to yourself and no one will be around to think it’s weird.
- When you live alone and clean your home, it will stay clean.
- You don’t have to tiptoe around the house worried about waking up your roommates or family members.
- You don’t have to be responsible for someone else’s needs. When you live alone, you can allocate your budget much more easily. In addition, you can invite any of your friends whenever you want and together you can do whatever you want whenever you want. And if you have a stressful job, nothing is better than coming home to a nice and quiet house and just relaxing to recover from a stressful day at work.
- You don’t have to politely tell someone you’re going out and be home late.
I could go on for a long time, but let’s stop here for now. So if you feel lonely or sad that you are still living alone, consider the many advantages it has. Because when you live alone every second is yours. You don’t do something that someone else wants.
