People might think that living alone is something that you do when you don't have friends, or that you have somehow failed to find your soul-mate. What people don't know is that sometimes living alone can be fun, and there certainly are advantages to living on your own. You get to make your own rules, go to bed when you want, get up when you want, and do whatever you want to do with yourself. You don't have to make nice for a roommate, or deal with people not liking the way you live.

Remember when you were a kid, and your parents left for the weekend? How sweet was that? You could do whatever you wanted, and nobody was there to tell you not too. You could have parties, have people over, eat whatever food you wanted, and chances are your parents would even leave you money to do so. That certainly was the life, and I wish I could spend a week at my parents empty house again.

As long as you have the right attitude about it, why wouldn't you want to live alone? At some point, yes, you do want to have a soul-mate, and start a family, but until then why not just have fun with it? You only get to live the single part of your life once, and you can only have so much fun until you get too old to throw wild parties anymore.

If you are living alone, you can have people over whenever you want, and you can kick them out whenever you want too. You don't have to feel bad about waking up in the middle of the night in your underwear, because no one is around to see you. You don't have to worry about walking in on a roommate doing something you didn't want to see.

When you live alone, you really are the master of your domain. You can do whatever you want, and you can do it whenever you want too. Of course, you will be responsible for paying the entirety of the rent, or the mortgage, but at least you don't have to worry about someone not paying you on time, or failing to pay at all. That is the worst, having to deal with someone, and not getting money for it.

Living alone is not the dreary experience that some people make it out to be. As long as you can have fun with it, why not live alone? Living alone does not mean you have no friends, no life, or that you are somehow not good enough for society. Living alone means that you are independent, and have a life that you want to lead on your own for now. What is so wrong with something like that? Have fun while you can, and before you have real responsibilities in life.
