For many people being single is just the desolate wasteland of time between one long-term partner and the next, spent constantly on the hunt for your soulmate (or just someone to bring you tea when you’re hungover).
Although this might sound like a plot from your mum’s worst nightmare, there’s no reason to despair.
Being single has some valuable life lessons to teach you, here are 11 of them.
1. Watching Netflix without getting distracted half-way through is actually humanly possible.
2. Doing DIY is totally within your capability, if you just try a little bit.
3. Keeping friendships strong is the smartest move anyone can make.
4. Syncing diaries with another person was completely holding back your social life.
