Delete your Tinder because of...science?
A new study, published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, has found single people are better at holding social bonds with others.
The research, found that "single individuals are more likely to frequently stay in touch with, provide help to, and receive help from parents, siblings, neighbours and friends than the married".
Meaning, basically, single people have more mates and are closer to their families and friends.
"Being single increases the social connections of both women and men," the researchers said.
"Overall, much of the positive relationship between singlehood and social ties remains even when we take into account structural explanations.
"We conclude that instead of promoting marriage, policy should acknowledge the social constraints associated with marriage and recognise that single individuals have greater involvement with the broader community."
