Lately, you may find yourself in that situation where several conversations with your friends will try to everyday situations, especially those that relate to living alone in your apartment when you are single. Who does not have, for example, a friend who is just passing through this experience, after his brother / best friend/roommate has moved to live with his girlfriend somewhere else? Or who does not have a friend, who comes from another city and is living alone in her new apartment? And above all, who does not know someone who after finishing with their partner decides to overcome the relationship and live alone. All, right?
Like many other things, living alone is definitely a double-edged sword, where there will be drawbacks as well as privileges. However, if you’re still not sure to buy that apartment that you like and live without a partner, friend or roommate who live, ledmain presents seven great ways to take advantage of being single and living alone. This is with the aim of highlighting all the positive things that come with making that big decision (with this we do not mean things like “walking naked by the apartment.”) Do people really walk naked?
Decorate your apartment exactly as you like it
Dare yourself. The benefits of living alone is that you do not have to receive criticism or ask every time you want to make any changes in the department. You can paint the walls of your favorite color, regardless of whether it is very light or not liked by others; Or you can spend your money buying that ridiculous ornament you always wanted in secret, but you did not do it because you did not have a place to put it (maybe because you lived in your parents’ house). Remember, you do not need anyone’s approval! Then, why not take advantage of that great opportunity. (Especially if that piece you want to put in your apartment is as extravagant as a pink bathtub or a life-size sculpture of some exotic animal).
Be as orderly or disorderly as you want
Whatever the case, please be within reason. It is normal that sometimes our habits drive crazy to anyone who lives with us, either because you are a cleaning maniac who can not see anything dirty and shouts to heaven whenever he sees something out of place, or if You are one of those who piled the dirty dishes in the sink and did not wash them until God knows when. No matter, living alone do not have to improve or change your habits because you are the owner and lord of everything you do in your department.
You have all the space for yourself
This is very important. Forget “let’s leave a space in our apartment for that person who in future is part of my life,” please free yourself! Take advantage of the spaces provided by your new apartment and use them as you wish. For example, in one of the rooms in the apartment, you can implement your office or have a relaxation room where you can watch movies and relax, or just a specific place where to spend with friends. Remember, if in the future you start dating someone, they decide to live together and who knows, they may form a family, you will not have so much freedom and space to do what you want and put your things. So while you are alone, enjoy and live as you always wanted.
Forget to set shifts
The main aspect of good living with someone is that there are rules and shifts that everyone can meet, something that does not exist when you live alone (for obvious reasons). This can have its positive aspect, like stop taking turns to see who sits on the couch more comfortable when watching TV or what program to watch; But it also has its negative aspect, since you are not going to take turns with anyone for cleaning the bathroom or kitchen, because you are simply going to do it yourself. However, let’s try to focus on the positive, yes?
Time and space to carry out all your projects
Whatever project you are interested in doing, whether painting large-scale canvases or learning a new language or dancing, living alone means that you do not have to limit yourself or apologize to others for your passions. This means that there is no reason to make excuses or apologize to the roommate every time you wake up in the morning and decide that day you are going to start taking singing lessons over the Internet at full volume (that is, be careful to annoy To your neighbors).
Hang out and share with friends
When you have a partner living with you in your apartment, even if you do not believe it, it makes days go by without you needing to leave the house; Since you have to talk to, share your things (work or personal), among others. You may say that this is not always the case, but you are more likely to feel the need to go anywhere when you live alone than when you live with your partner or a partner. Silence and loneliness are fantastic at times, but at the same time, you are forced to organize plans that involve leaving the house, calling friends or going socializing, among others.
Do not use this as an economic excuse
This may be the case for some. Living in expensive districts requires high expenses. So it can be frustrating to see your other friends go out every day to dinner at any restaurant, go to events or concerts with your partner and generally live a high lifestyle simply because of the fact that in your home you have two incomes Economic benefits. And yes, maybe after reading this you imagine yourself and your best friend, singles and sitting in a bar or cafe taking something while they complain about how expensive life is and despite their work, they are still “missions” and They can not afford to buy something or invest their money in things they like. Well, stop thinking like that. Maybe when you are older, you reach a situation where you have enough money to give you the life you always wanted with your own income. And when that time comes, you’ll be the happiest owner in the world and you’ll feel good about yourself because you did it yourself. That is the most important.
