Keep Calm And Stay Single

Life always gets us in a crossroad...Stay single or get marry

Life always gets us in a crossroad…Stay single or get marry?

Grass is always greener on the other side. This saying goes well for people who are in a relationship and who are single. When you are single, you mostly will be looking at your committed friends and wishing if you could also be in a meaningful relationship. On the other hand, if you were in a relationship, you would look at your single friends enviously and think what all you could have done if you were single. While the world might say it is beautiful to be in love, being in a relationship is not the only way to express your love. Love is not just about holding your partners hands or going out on a date. It could also mean helping someone in need, spending time with your parents and taking your young sibling to the next baseball match. However, if none of these reasons convinces you here are top three reasons why you should stay single?

Career and financial instability

Take financial stability into account

The best advantage of being single is you can focus all your energies on your career and growth. A committed relationship takes a lot of time and money. If you are just building your career, it should be priority to save money rather than splurge it on the dates and dinners. Look around and you will notice how much time is wasted today by your friends in talking to their partners, taking them out for a date or a dinner. Moreover, any relationship goes through good and bad times. When the time is good, you would want to be with your partner but when the time is bad, you cannot think about anything else but your partner. In all of this, your career takes a back seat even before you realize it.

You can do what your committed friends cannot do

This probably can be the best part about staying single. You can flirt in a party freely without having to worry if your partner is looking over you. Secondly, you do not have to worry about partying with your friends and paint the town red without calling and telling your partner about your whereabouts or asking their permission before going out somewhere especially with the opposite sex. You are the master of your life and you decide how you live it minus all the drama and imposed insecurities.

Focus on other relationships

Everyone who has been or who is in a relationship is guilty of one thing. It is not being able to give due respect to other relationships. Many other relationships are also important in life. Being in a relationship can be quite demanding both time wise and energy wise and one tends to forget about others when in a relationship. If you are single, you can give due respect and love to your best friends, your parents you colleagues and your siblings.

Going out with friends & chatting until dawn

If these reasons convince you enough, then stay single and enjoy your life as a bachelor before some stranger takes away your freedom. Moreover, it is very important to be confident on one’s status and always remember grass may be greener on the other side but that is probably because it has been mowed a lot.

More Debt Or More Investment

What to do with your extra money

What to do with your extra money

When you have surplus cash you may face the dilemma between paying down Debt, and investing more. How to Choose What Is Right For You? Is your debt offering you leverage that you do not want to let go? Here are a few pointers you need to keep in mind before reshuffling your investment portfolio.

Can you afford more risk?

It’s important that once you make your investment decision you can enjoy your peace of mind. Hence you need to first ascertain whether you are an aggressive or conservative investor. If you are aggressive in your market outlook and investment behaviour and have more tolerance towards risks, you may choose to invest more and benefit from the high returns you are likely to enjoy instead of paying off your debt. However if your risk appetite is low or your market outlook is weak, you may choose to pay off your debt and enjoy your peace of mind.

What is the rate of interest on your loan?

Check the interest rate on your loan

Check the rate of interest on your loan

If it is an old loan you may have got it at a cheaper rate than the current market interest. Paying off such a loan may make you lose the leverage that you currently enjoy. A good idea is to put in your surplus cash in other investment opportunities like equities that offer you a higher pre tax return of 10 percent historically.

Are you enjoying tax benefits because of your debt?

If you are in the loan bracket of 35 percent and you loan interest is deducted from your income, your net interest rate would be much lesser. Also when you earn returns on your investment you may be paying tax on the returns especially if it is a short term capital gain or a fixed income instrument. So when you compare the opportunity cost of investing with paying off your loan, you must compare the post tax return on investment rate with the post tax interest rate.

What are the investment opportunities available?

If the market is offering good investment opportunities it maybe wise to use your extra funds to benefit from them. You should also consider using the surplus funds to invest into your own business if there are lucrative opportunities available.

Have you considered the prepayment charge?

While comparing the two scenarios check with your lender if they would slap a prepayment penalty on you if you make an upfront payment. Consider the charge before you make your decision.

Your cash flow situation

Evaluate your cash flow situation before making the final call. If you feel you would be stressed to make the payouts in the future, you can make the upfront loan payment. However if you loan attracts a prepayment charge or penalty, you could deploy the funds into a fixed income instrument and make the interest payments as per the loan schedule.

Are you in a debt trap?

Are you in a Debt Trap?

If you are already in the vicious cycle of paying debts and borrowing more debt to payoff earlier debt, the surplus funds should be ideally deployed to pay off your debt. Over leveraging on debt can be risky and can lower down your credit score as well as earn you a bad reputation. So next time when you genuinely need a loan, you may not be able to secure it at good terms.

Your age, your life stage and your financial portfolio may also influence your final decision. You could also consult a trained financial expert to help you make the right decision be it more debt or more investment or the right mix of the two!
