It boosts your self-esteem
Take this time to work on yourself, fine tune anything and everything that might be making you feel less confident. By the time you get back in the dating game, nothing or no one will succeed in belittling you.
It liberates you
The number one success factor for a partnership is compromise and adjusting to this can be difficult. When you’re single, you do you. That means you don’t have to do anything you don’t like as the only person you’re trying to please is you.
When you’re in a relationship you’re always worrying about something. If you’re not thinking about your future as a couple you’re taking into consideration your partner’s feelings and that can be a lot to deal with.
Relationships sometimes put people in boxes of perfection in terms of how you need to present yourself, what you eat or what you say. Being single, on the other hand, breaks all these ‘rules’. Do you want to eat a whole box of pizza alone? Do that! Thinking of going out in sweat pants? Go ahead, girl!
Reconnect with close family and friends
We know what love can do to your relationships with family and friends. No matter how much you try, they’ll always be that one friend who feels sidelined. This allows you to have more time for people you care about.
A chance to reinvent yourself
The beauty about putting dating on hold is that you get to decide on how long you do it for so you’re in no rush. This free time will allow you to craft the best version of yourself. A more confident, strong-willed and determined you.
