One thing is for sure; the grass is always greener on the other side. There will be a time if you are single where you will wonder if your life would be better if you are dating someone and a time when you are in a healthy relationship and after some time start remembering about your life when you were single.
“Being Single vs Being in a Relationship”, everyone has a different point of view and choice. It is entirely up to a person’s personal preference. Both have its pros and cons; it is both sides of a coin. You can enjoy some things while you are single, and then there are some things you can only want when you are in a relationship.
Not all people are just looking for love and fall for someone; some love their freedom and not be bound to one person. As for people in relationships, everyone thinks that their life will grow boring from now on and they constantly have to think about two people instead of themselves in every situation, then that’s also not true.

Experiencing true love is a feeling no one can explain. It is usually described as when you fall in love with a person and want to share every part of your day with them and see them as the one most important to you. It is a beautiful experience that cannot be explained much in words, but one only understands it when they experience it themselves.

Not being in a relationship also puts you in a place where you don’t have to disagree or fight with a partner. It keeps the stress level comparatively lower.

It also keeps you from going through a breakup and a heartbreak, which are difficult to cope with.
