There’s no better focus than when you know there’s nobody to come home to. Trust me, I’ve built a successful career off it. You know what’s waiting for you at home? A glass of wine, and that passion project. Ain’t no man meat gonna accomplish your goals for you, unless you tryna be the next ‘Debbie Does Dallas.’ So get to work!

4. You’ll Get to Know Yourself Better

This is the time to really learn who you are and what you like. I mean ain’t nobody else interested in you, so you might as well learn what you like for when somebody finally is.

3. You Can Save Yourself for Your True Love

Sure, casual encounters are fun and fulfilling and keep you from being grumpy. But who cares?? They don’t love you. But if you abstain for 2 years while waiting on your true love….it’ll almost be worth all the batteries you went through.

2. You Won’t be Ashamed When You Get Your Annual

You know when you gotta get that pap smear and they ask the same question: “how many partners have you had in the last year?” You can proudly proclaim “0, ma’am!” This is an accomplishment compared to the 19 you said 2 years ago.

1. Because I am, and I Need Someone to Relate to Me!
