It's National Unmarried And Single Americans Week, and we at YourTango are kicking up our heels and celebrating. To us, being single is less about being romantically unattached and more about a state of mind: A sense of independence and self-sufficiency that is an integral part of being a well-adjusted human being. It's about exploring the trials and tribulations of the individual before diving head-first into a relationship. It's about...being yourself.
Last week, we kicked around some ideas and came up with a huge initiative: 100 best things about being single! Since our staff is pretty darn knowledgeable about this topic, it wasn't hard to come up with some gems, from "having just one schedule to plan weekends around" to "morning workouts that aren't derailed by morning sex." Look for new reasons all this week, and click here for the first part:
