2014-02-04 08:38

尽管你可能会感到孤独,但大量不被打扰的时间是你应当珍视的财富。你可以尽情做自己想做的事,丰富人生。进入一段感情后,你可就没有这么多时间了。



【I.单身让你提升自我】

单身时光也许是你最好的一段人生经历之一,它会让你学会自立,学会自信,学会认识自己,以及怎样与自己为伴。

Being single may be one of the best experiences of your life. It teaches you self-reliance. It teaches you self-confidence. It teaches you an immense amount about who you are. It teaches you how to keep yourself company. 

[单身理由1:时间属于自己]
所有"有主"的人都会告诉你,经营恋爱和婚姻关系需要巨多时间。所以当你单身时,你有更多属于自己的时间,可以做自己喜欢的事,你可以有自己的时间表。单身的你有更多时间发展兴趣爱好、放松心情以及与朋友和家人相聚。单身使你有更多的时间让自己变得更好。

Relationships and marriages require a significant amount of time, as anyone who is married or in a relationship will tell you. So when you're single, you may have more time for yourself and things that you like to do. You can set your own schedule. Being single may give you more time for hobbies, relaxation, being with friends and family, and so on. Being single gives you more time to better yourself. 

[单身理由2:培养独立精神]
一个人生活意味着你要独立解决所有你不懂的事情,没人能帮你,所以这是你提升动手能力和自信心的绝好机会!只要你去读上几本书,再向附近的五金店或家装商场取取经,你就会惊讶地发现在短时间内你学到了多少东西!从烹饪到修理水管,都不在话下。

When you're single, there's no one around to do all the things you don't know how to do, which makes being single a great opportunity to sharpen your DIY skills and boost your confidence. If you read a couple of books and ask questions at your local hardware or home-improvement store, you'll be surprised how quickly you can learn everything from cooking to plumbing.

[单身理由3:认识更多朋友]
情侣们总是"与世隔绝",他们把大部分时间花在伴侣身上而很少交到新朋友。相比之下,单身的人更加"有空"并且更容易接近,所以他们容易结交到更多朋友,并更能从中体会多样的生活。每一段新的友谊或感情都是个学习新知的好机会——从登山知识到红酒的奥秘——而且这些知识不会随着朋友的离开而消逝。

Couples often become insulated, spending most of their time with each other and not making many new friends. Single people are more "out there" and more approachable, so they tend to meet more people and end up experiencing more of what life has to offer. Each new friendship or romance is a chance to learn something new - from mountaineering to the mysteries of wine - and those lessons stay with you even if the people move on. 


无论你是想买一台单反,还是想来一场说走就走的旅行,单身让你无需与他人商量,完全支配自己的财务,享受冒险的自由。

【II.单身让你享受生活】

两人世界意味着妥协。单身的时候,你只向自己妥协。这让你有更多的空间去释放激情,追寻梦想,按自己的节奏生活。

Couplehood means compromise. When you're single, any compromises you make are with yourself. Being single leaves you free to pursue your passions, follow your dreams, and live life on your own terms. 

[单身理由4:享受更多自由]
如果你想试着去巴黎生活,渴望移居阿拉斯加,想饲养雪橇犬,或者心血来潮想买辆房车启程上路,你可以的——如果你单身的话。单身意味着你可以冒险,而不用向另一半解释或寻求支持。无论你是想参加极限运动,还是换个职业,牺牲现在的薪水以换取长远机会,你一人做事一人当。

If you want to try living in Paris, have a hankering to move to Alaska and breed sled dogs, or feel the urge to buy an RV and hit the road, you can. You're single. Living single means you can take risks that might be difficult to justify or persuade a partner to support if you were part of a couple. Whether you're taking up an extreme sport, or making a career move that sacrifices short-term income for long-term opportunity, the only person you're putting at risk is you. 

[单身理由5:花销你做主]
也许你不是很富裕,也许你必须继续工作,但是单身能让你得到另一种形式的经济独立。当你进入二人世界或成家后,许多花销都要共同决定,薪水的大部分都要用来满足他人的需要。如果你单身,你的花销你做主。

You may not be wealthy and you may need to keep your day job, but the single life gives you another kind of financial independence. When you're part of a couple or you have a family, many spending decisions are collective, and most of your paycheck has to support other people's needs. When you're single, you alone are in charge of how you spend your money. 


知道自己能够快乐地独身生活,才能使你更容易快乐地享受婚姻。当你还没有遇到TA时,不妨先专注于自己的事业。它同样是你人生重要的一环。

【III.单身让未来婚姻更稳固】

单身可能帮助你为婚姻建立情感基础。原因部分在于,当你单身时,你可以进行大量的自我反思,关于爱以及很多很多。此外,你也可以为婚姻打下更牢固的物质基础。
