Yes, sometimes we like to complain about being single. It's not all sunshine and roses, especially roses, because who would even bring you any? But buck up, my little unattached campers. There are some good things about being single as well.
And since Match.com released its fourth annual Singles in America survey, here are a few encouraging facts about those of us who fly solo. Pat yourselves on the backs, fellow singles. We're great.
We're having plenty of orgasms. In fact, 44 percent of singles have them 90 to 100 percent of the time with a familiar partner. But which single people have the most orgasms, you might be wondering? I'll tell you: It's people in Miami, redheads, people with Androids are having the most, and people who work in computers.
We're true believers. We may not have found our match yet, but 89 percent of singles say they believe they can stay married to the same person forever. Plus, 51 percent of us have imagined a future together while on a first date. That's optimism, you guys.
There's a good chance your fun casual fling can also turn serious. Seriously, 31 percent of singles have had a one-night stand turn into a committed relationships. That's practically a one-in-three chance! So basically, go sleep with three people next week, and boom, you're guaranteed a boyfriend. (Disclaimer: not guaranteed or scientifically accurate.)
We're modern and all about the equal rights. A whopping 92 percent of single men are totally cool with a woman asking a guy out on a date.
We put our money where our mouth is. Each month, an average single person spends about $61.53 per month on dating-related activities. With all 111 million singles in America, this adds up to $82 billion annually. You're welcome, economy. No new bars would ever open without us. We're basically heroes.
