As '70s rockers Three Dog Night said, "one is the loneliest number." Anyone who's ever been single knows this to be an irrefutable fact, like gravity or Beyoncé's reign of world domination. From feeling like the third (or fifth or seventh) wheel at social functions, to worrying about terrifying "what-if" living alone scenarios, going it on your own can be a rough road at times.

However, there are plenty of things to celebrate about singlehood. Relationships aren't always all they're cracked up to be, for one. And flying solo means you have total control over your destiny — where you go, what you do, with whom you spend time. In moments of loneliness, it can be hard to remember the perks of being single, but luckily there are plenty of writers who are all too happy to remind us that oftentimes, being a party of one can be the most fun.
