Cupid’s Advice:

Shacking up with someone is great, but it’s also nice to live alone and have “me” time all the time.  Here are some of the pros of living by yourself:

1. Do what you want: When you live alone, you’re on your own schedule.  Being able to do what you want when you want is a major plus.

2. Enjoy your privacy: Living without a partner means you can do things like walk around without clothes on, sing at the top of your lungs or have conversations with yourself, like Taylor Swift!

3. No roommate issues: We’ve all lived with someone who drives us crazy.  Roommate fights are inevitable, and living by yourself helps you avoid all that drama.
