Let’s be honest – being single is a double-edged sword.
Sometimes, it’s the best thing in the world. You get to flirt with anyone you want, you don’t have anyone to check in with before making plans with friends, and there are no arguments about what to put on Netflix or who needs to shower first. There’s no obligation to actually share that share pack of Cadbury’s Nibbles* and when it’s time for bed, you can starfish like your life depends on it and there’s no one to commandeer the covers in the middle of the night. Being single is fantastic.
But other times, it can feel like torture. You’re left to huddle up alone when all you want is a snuggle, and seeing other couples being cutesy on public transport makes you want to vomit into your stylish yet functional backpack. You imagine falling wildly in love with the bartender that made eye contact with you three whole times, but it turns out they were just looking at the clock on the wall behind you. Even though you have friends and family that love you, you’re lonely, and being single sucks.
