Single In The City

Despite what the rom-coms might have us believe, living the single life isn't always such a cakewalk.

But when you stop and think about it, there are undeniable perks to being single. So in honor of the proud singletons ones among us, we've rounded up some little known (study-backed) benefits of swinging solo that will have you rejoicing over your hiatus from the dating pool.
