Date someone because you already see a future, not because you want to see if you would work out

With over 15 years of experience and a passion and dedication to matchmaking, I have established myself as the go-to authority for helping singles find their true love. In my career, I have helped over 1 000 clients and continue to help couples build stronger and sustainable relationships. The thing is, when you know what you're doing, love isn't hard! I think it's crazy that we grow up never being taught how to date or find love. It's one of the most important things in life and most people are just left to work it out without any support. Big, amazing, head over heels love is available to everyone but so many people don't believe it! That's why I decided to go and train as a coach. I want to help people find the love they deserve. I want them to wake up every day with a person that adores them!

The shocking cost of being single

Drop file here to send
While nowadays, everyone buzzes about how expensive weddings can be, it turns out the price tag on one’s nuptials is a mere pittance compared to the cost of remaining single.

In The Atlantic Monthly‘s “The High Price of Being Single in America,” authors Lisa Arnold and Christina Campbell argue that, compared to a married woman of the same income, a single woman, over the course of her lifetime, could pay an extra $1,022,096 — just for being single.

Yes, you read that right.

What, other than a second income, would the single woman be missing out on? Tax breaks and extra Social Security benefits, plus savings in health and housing costs, for starters. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/learnvest/is-being-single-more-expensive_b_2958249.html

I think it's cheaper being single. I can spend my money on whatever I want to spend my money on!

It's easier to stay in when you're part of a couple. When you're single you don't always want to stay in and be on your own, which means you go out more, which means more money.

There's absolutely a difference financially to being single. It's not that you pay half of the costs that you did when you were in a couple. It's quite a bit more than that - I would estimate it's 80-90% of the costs for a single person.

Being in a relationship also helps to be able to balance each other out. For example, my husband had a car at the time we met, I didn't. But I had an apartment. So ultimately, combined, we had the basics

If you’re moving in with your significant other, big items like rent and other recurring bills—such as internet and cable—can be shared, helping both of you save big each month. Even if you and your partner move into a new place together, the price can still be cheaper than an apartment you were living in alone.

mentally, there is no peace to those girls, who are not married at the age of 30 in my society. People, family members, and relatives run behind us constantly. God give me a break pouting face

Dating may be expensive, but having a partner may actually save you money and make you more financially responsible along the way.

Marriage has a number of potential financial advantages over the single life. Depending on your income situation, you may be able to save money on a joint tax return at the end of the year, and family plans for health and car insurance often offer a discount when compared to the same coverage for single people.
