The Perks of Singledom

Inspired by the book I'm currently reading Better Single Than Sorry

  • The toilet seat is always down.
  • I can have peanut butter on toast for dinner if I want. (That was so what I ate last night... what?)
  • I don't have to worry about guys checking me out at the bar. I can enjoy it!
  • The remote is solely in MY control.
  • I can buy a green toaster if I want to.
  • No need to spend extra money on gifts for the holidays.
  • I can talk on the phone for all hours of the night and not feel guilty.
  • I can read blogs for all hours of the night and not feel guilty. ;)
  • My friends can finally set me up with all those cute single guys they've been warding off.
  • Those heels and sexy dresses will finally come in handy!
  • I can break out the comfy pj pants and t-shirts from junior high to lounge around the house in.
  • Chick flick marathons on the weekends and lots of Sex & the City reruns!
  • I can randomly hop on a plane to California!
  • My underwear and bra don't always have to match.
  • I can sleep right in the middle of the bed and lay spread eagle if I want to.
  • I only have to wash MY dirty clothes. And only when I feel like it.
  • There's no one to be angry at me if I don't come home ;)

You should try peanut butter on waffles, it's my favorite weekend food!

I love these lists of yours.

My underwear and bra don't always have to match.

I love your list! Looks like the new life is suiting you well, woot. :)

Michelle said...

oh you know miriam - sexy lingerie. thigh highs. and my whip at my side ;)

Virginia said...

You forgot to list that you can go out whenever you want with WHOMEVER you want, and not feel like you're either abandoning your girlfriends or your boyfriend. No picking sides!

Lisa said...

What is with Peter's ACK. Is he against unmatching underwear? Because I don't have a single matching set! Unless like, black and black. Probably I could do blue and similar shade blue, too. But that's hardly matching.

Also, I'm so glad to be here on the bright side with you! The single life is pretty good!

Angela said...

Love the positive spin on things! And peanut butter toast is one of my favorite things to eat for dinner! Sometimes I mix it up and throw in a slice with jelly too, but that's getting kind of crazy ;)

My underwear and bra don't always have to match.

Woo hoo!!! You go girl! :)

Kristie said...

Lovely! I would kill for a week without kids and an significant other. Only because I haven't been control of the remote in ages.

Live it up and tell me the juicy stories when you're done. And they better be JUICY!

Julie Q said...

don't forget, the best thing about having your own apartment is you can have over whoever you like, whenever you like! :)

Please tell me, where can one find a green toaster? I love green. Also - woo hoo for S&tC marathons! I do those rather frequently =)

midnite99 said...

One more -- you never have to wait for the bathroom. :) Yay for perks! I hope you are enjoying the new place.

Larissa said...

Yay sexy heels. Go splurge on a really hot pair.

ana said...

Get on that plane already.....

stilettoheights said...

yes, you have to love single girl behavior!!

the other day my bf was away, so I ate 2 bagles for breakfast, with no guilt or fear, then had 2 grilled cheese 1 for lunch and 1 for dinner...I watched general hospital...

GUILT FREE!!

Lisa said...

Ah, a list of all the things I miss. Hahaha.

Erica said...

You don't have to hide your
"period underwear"!

nicoleantoinette said...

This list *totally* captures the awesome of single life.

Another perk is not having to call and check in with someone when your plans change/you're going to be home late/anything like that!

I applaud your positivity. :)

sassafras said...

I can't seem to get over the peanut butter on waffle comment. Do you put syrup on it too? I might need to try it this weekend.

Awesome list! Also, you don't have to hide your new purchases!

amanda rae said...

i am printing this list off and plastering it on my wall

Passionista said...

Preach on Sister! Now that I'm dating someone more consistently now it is such a pain to match a cute bra with cute underwear. Such...a...pain.

Katelin said...

And I tagged for a meme today :)

Princess Pointful said...

Amen!!
Don't forget that you don't need to shave your legs all the time... just before those dates with all those cute guys your friends want to set you up with!

Ashley said...

Hmm....I find myself dating and my bra and underwear STILL don't match. I should look into this maybe...

Great list! And sassafrass said it perfectly--you dont have to hide your purchases! Which is awesome.

Angela said...

Peanut butter on anything makes a great meal. Perfectly acceptable in my book.

Jess said...

This is a great list. And if there's really a green toaster, I'd like a photo, please.

A Margarita said...

I agree with EVERY single one of those. My favorite is definitely having the bed all to myself and not having to come home and answer to someone ;)

I would add - No one eats your leftovers that you were saving but yourself.
