A lot of my friends say they envy me because I'm single.
And yes, they have a few good points. I make my own decisions. I am in charge of my time.
"You can do anything you want, they say."
I reply, "But at least you can have sex whenever you want. I can't."
However, the thing is, I can't do anything I want. I still have limits. Single people still have a limited amount of time on their hands.
Each day we only have 16 waking hours to do what we want. 8 is left after minusing our work.
Minus our meals, 5-6 hours.
Dressing up, showering, etc. 4-5 hours.
Commuting will take up between 1-3 hours depending on what he does.
Exercise is a must, it is important, 1 hour.
So that leaves a range of between 1-3 hours.
That's a maximum of 3 hours day extra that a single person has a day. Not really much. Most probably it's only 2.5 hours.
Just one night of dancing, or cell group, or martial arts, or studying will take up that time.
A single person can only do so much with his/her time. He can only choose to do one extra hobby, course, etc.
Single people also need this extra time to spend in social activities. I realize that some single people remain single waaaaay too long. And that's because they spend their time working instead of meeting people.
Obviously, it's a personal choice, but life is about relationships, becoming a better person, and growing. When we realize we have limited time, let's put priority on the most important things in life before our time is up.
