14 Psychological Reasons Why People Choose A More Lonely Lifestyle!

-

Single people are too often stereotyped and stigmatized. They are pitied while married people are celebrated. Yet single life can be tremendously meaningful and fulfilling. It is time for a more accurate, research-based portrayal of single people and single life—one that recognizes the real strengths and resilience of people who are single, and what makes their lives so meaningful.

Here are 14 reasons why they prefer to be alone:

1. There are more single Americans aged 16 and older than there are married Americans.

2. Single life is the better part of our adult lives:

Americans spend more years of their adult lives single than married.

3. People who are “single at heart” embrace single life. Living single is how they live their best, most authentic, most meaningful lives.

They are not single because they have "issues" or because they have not found "The One."

4. Claims that getting married makes people happier, healthier, and more integrated into society are grossly exaggerated or just plain wrong.

People who get married do not end up any happier than they were when they were single.

5. People who get married do not end up any healthier or less depressed than when they were single, nor do they enjoy any higher self-esteem.

6. People who marry become more insular. They were more connected to parents and friends when they were single.

7. When studies seem to show that getting married is beneficial, the explanation may be singlism and matrimania (as well as biased analyses) rather than any social support or social monitoring that goes on within a marriage.

8. Social scientists overwhelmingly study marriage and married people.

Lifelong single people are mostly ignored, except as a comparison group in studies of marriage.

9. Singles savor their solitude and its profound rewards.

10. Singles embrace bigger, broader meanings of relationships and love.

They care about “the ones,” not just The One.

11. Singles develop a diversified portfolio of skills.

The kinds of tasks that newly divorced and newly widowed people need to learn are ones that lifelong single people have already mastered.

12. Singles contribute in meaningful ways.

They do a lot of volunteering, and they do more than their share of caring for aging parents and people who need help

13. Singles value opportunities to pursue their interests and passions and do the work they care about the most.

14. Lifelong single people experience more personal growth and development than people who stay married.
