Being single quotes may not be what you thought you were looking for, but they might as well be!
What’s for certain is that being in a broken relationship is much, much worse than being single! Bad relationships are way worse for you than staying on your own. There’s absolutely nothing shameful in being single.
You get to decide what you want to do with your life, and sometimes staying on your own is simply the best decision for you at the moment.
There is absolutely no reason for you to be in a relationship for the sake of not being alone. Being single and fabulous is truly a million times better than staying in some false relationship that isn’t making you happy.
Now, you may believe that being single might in some way be the worst thing in the world, especially if you are the only single girl or guy among your friends, but believe me when I say, it has its perks.
Being single means getting to explore your own interests more thoroughly, practice self-love, and scout your independence and own needs without anything or anyone stopping you.
For example, you have more time to stay in touch with your friends.
There’s no one bothering you with their annoying eating or sleeping habits, right? You can flirt whenever you feel like it without feeling guilty… and other many, many benefits of single life.
So, have a look at the best being single quotes we’ve collected for you.

Empowering being single quotes
1. “Women Empowerment Reminder of The Day. Always respect yourself as a woman. You attract what you are, so be very mindful of how you’re representing yourself. If you want respect, you must first learn how to respect yourself, first. Attracting negative attention is never a good thing. Be a woman of substance! Be a woman that both women and men respect, admire, and look up to. Don’t disrespect yourself by lowering your standards and accepting just anything that comes your way. It’s okay to be single! If you want a relationship of substance, you can’t keep entertaining people and things that mean you no good. Think about it! It’s all up to you.” – Stephanie Lahart

4. “You are a single woman; you intend to remain one. You’ve acquired enough sexual experience to feel you belong to your times. You do not have children; you never intended to. Sustained romantic intensities have not been for you. Your explanation (not an untrue one, though not quite sufficient) is that you have let yourself be shaped by so many conventions, expectations, and requirements (institution’s, people’s), by so much dread of disapproval, that the discipline of solitude, severe solitude, has been required to give you the sense of an independent selfhood. The intensities of friendship suit you better. Friendship’s choreography is for multiple partners: for varied groups and surprisingly sustained duets.” – Margo Jefferson
5. “You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.” – Maya Angelou
6. “Being single is wonderful! Doing whatever you want whenever you want to — nothing beats that. Some of my personal favourites are finding the food you left in the fridge is still there when you get home, not having to compromise, sleeping diagonally in the bed, never dealing with your partner’s mood swings, and not having to pretend to be asleep to avoid having sex when you’re not in the mood. Another part of my relationship phobia was letting a new person get to know me. I’m not talking about the surface me – I’m talking about the bad-breath-in-the morning, clip-my-toenails-on-the-toilet, farting, and head-tie-wearing me. To be loved, you have to let a person see all of you – that means both the best and the worst. My fear was whether, when they saw the worst, they would actually want to stay.” – Andrea Bain
7. “‘Single’ is an opportunity to live life on your own terms and not apologize.” – Mandy Hale
