Still single after Valentine’s Day? Don’t worry. You're better off than your married friends, according to science.

In fact, Business Insider just looked into some recent studies that explored this topic, and here are two benefits that scientists agreed about:

Being Single Increases the Social Connections of Both Women and Men – Singles are more likely to frequently preach out to their social network. Plus, they actually provide and receive more help from those people than a married person would.

Singles Are More Fit – If you “settle down” in a relationship, you probably ease into some “unhealthy habits,” right? In fact, Surveys show that we’re more likely to go work out each week when we’re single. Well, the Journal of Social Science and Medicine apparently found that single people have slightly lower BMIs than their married counterparts.

Time alone doesn’t have to be "lonely time" either, by the way. Business Insider has more tips on how you can grow as a productive person just by being single in their full story.
