If you’re single and have friends in relationships, these friends seem to be desperate to give singletons advice. The problem is, the advice is usually rubbish that enrages us. So for all you advice givers out there, here are 17 things single people are tired of hearing:
“I’ve no idea how you can be single!”
Well nevertheless, here we are single despite your in-depth knowledge.
“There’s someone out there for everyone.”
And there is also lots of weirdos too. We’re happy with Netflix.
“You will meet someone when you least expect it!”
What like when we’re at the dentist? That never happens.
“My friend # is just PERFECT for you!”
And you just know that they’re a total troll with zero personality.
“You must be really lonely.”
We get by just fine, thanks.
“You’ll have to hurry up if you want to have children!”
“You should try internet dating. My friend # was married in like 3 months!”
Did you forget that we’re happy being single?
“Once you’re in a serious relationship, you’ll miss being single!”
We’re perfectly happy as we are!!
“There are plenty of fish in the sea!”
Well wait till we drop everything and get a fishing rod.
“Maybe you just look a bit too desperate?”
We DON’T CARE that we’re single. Wait? You think we look desperate?!
“Or maybe if you didn’t like # so much you wouldn’t be single…”
Excuse us, but if we do have a hobby we want a partner to share it with. We aren’t going to change our personality just so we can change our Facebook relationship status too.
“Okay you’re single, but are you seeing someone?”
No! That’s why we’re single! How many times?
“I couldn’t face being single again like you.”
It’s not like we have some disease!
“Oooh it’s the bouquet toss – you better hurry if you’re going to catch it!”
Thanks but we’re okay sitting here drinking the wine.
“It’s good that you’re concentrating on your career/studying.”
Seriously? We’re enjoying our lives not choosing one aspect over another!
“Have you ever thought about dating *insert male friend’s name*?”
No, because we’re friends!
Just remember, ignore those silly people, you don’t need anyone.
You are FIERCE.
