There are many advantages to being single in Toronto. Of course it's nice to have someone by your side when you're feeling lonely but it's also hard to focus on yourself when you have another person to take care of.
Relationships are an investment, if you're not ready to give a 100% there's no point of being in one. Perhaps you haven't met the right person yet, therefore it's important to explore your options. Here's a list of pros you should consider before settling down in a relationship while living in Toronto:
1. There will be more savings in the bank $$$
Think about the amount of money you spend on your significant other... Toronto is a pricey city and no matter where you go, you have to empty your wallet. It will cost you $30+ bucks just to go see fishes at Ripley's.
2. You can go on many dates.
You're not limited to seeing one person. The places to meet people in Toronto is unlimited. From nightclubs to bars, arcades and restaurants, the list can go on and on... Be spontaneous and go on a blind or speed date.
3. You can flirt without hesitation.
There will be no need to think twice whether you're innocent or not. You can party all day at Cabana Pool Bar and have a flirty attitude in every conversation.
4. You'll have more spare time.
Relationships take up a lot of your "own" time. There are several place you can enjoy during your alone time in Toronto.

Your significant other becomes your best friend, but it's not the same friendship as it is with your bros & girls. Go out with your friends without guilt and have some fun.

More room in the bed for you and no more sleepless nights. It's hard to get a good sleep when your S/O snores or moves around all night long.
