Ladies (and gentlemen), your 20s are some of the most exciting times in life. You’re growing up, finding your path, and getting to know the real you. Here’s a few reasons why being completely single this summer is far better than any summer fling.

  1. Freedom

    Freedom is R.I.V.E.T.I.N.G. Even if you are working, there’s always room for adventure. Don’t let a summer fling hold you back from picking up a new hobby, exploring the world or an opportunity to get to know yourself better.shutterstock_115937251

  2. Travel

    Independence through travel can be one of the most satisfying vices out there. Back up your bags, hop in the car, and drive like there’s no tomorrow without having to worry about anyone else’s feelings but your own. Plus, it’s nice not having someone to miss at this time in your life.

  3. Your Career

    If you don’t have a job, consuming your time hanging out with a significant other or day dreaming about your summer night romances comes naturally. If you have a job, it is easy to crave both to keep your mind off the stress. While life is all about living in the moment, use this summer to pursue or drive your career. Even if it’s picking up a random job at your local coffee shop or picking up a “How to Get a Job For Dummies.”

  4. Meeting New People

    There are 7 billion people in the world. You never know who you will meet while you’re at the park, out on the town, or even half way across the world. Embrace the opportunity to introduce yourself to new people and gain new perspectives without any hesitation at all.

  5. Friendships

    As you get older and get into your path in life, friendships can begin to diminish. Now is the time to value and appreciate your friends by spending time with them over a summer fling.
