The things we have to endure when we're searching for love. Painful chat up lines, awkward silences, swiping right while thinking 'Bet this one's gonna be a weirdo' - compared to the likes of Sex and the City, it's far from cosmos we were reared!
Here are some hilarious tweets that are spot on when it comes to describing the single life.
Guaranteed you'll be thinking, 'That's me,' when you read some of the these:
Online dating is great craic
*collects bumble matches like baseball cards, but never talks to any of them* WHY WONT ANYONE TAKE ME ON A DATE ?!?! #whyimsingle #introvertprobs

Decided to re-try online dating. Few messages, few nice guys. One actually picks up the phone and calls today...to as if I'm a 'sensual woman.' FFS. #onlinedating #whyimsingle

I realized when I go through tinder, when I swipe left, in my head I go “no” but if I swipe right I say “he’ll do” #whyimsingle

Like a fairytale...
I went on a double date with a minor league soccer player and he kicked a soccer ball so hard and it me in the face on accident and I had to leave the date early in a cab alone and have an appointment for a possible concussion. #whyimsingle

I weighted 135 lbs.
He said, "Here, this will help you manage your weight, now that you're getting older."#WhyImSingle

Once, a friend of my brother's asked me out by saying, "I'll even shower before our date." #WhyImSingle

We don't always help ourselves
Got asked on a date - literally choosing to eat a donut and watch Netflix instead. #whyimsingle

Instead of appreciating a man’s kind gesture of offering his seat to me, I think he’s insinuating I’m pregnant. #whyimsingle

Does anyone else go out and think “man I wish I was in bed watching the office?” Yet another reason I can’t meet someone. #theoffice #whyimsingle

#WhyImSingle... Friday nights: Getting in Twitter fights about the #SchumerShutdown while eating sweet potato fries...

Still chuckle at the word “discombobulated”. Such a great word #whyimsingle

When the harsh reality sets in
So the fact that 13 year old @milliebbrown MAY be dating makes me sad that i am 18 1/2 and still haven’t had a boyfriend ?? #SingleLife

The single life. No one to call or msg so no one looks for you. You pass out in front of the tv for 2 hours, wake up and negotiate getting up to go to bed...rarely a successful negotiation.

It's a journey of self-discovery if nothing else
Sometimes I wonder why I'm single.
And then I get excited when I find a boatload of British history documentaries on YouTube. #thisiswhyimsingle #whyimsingle

I just sneezed and my retainer went flying across the room in the dark. #whyimsingle
