You see we should want to be writing about how amazing it all is to be single and free but the reality is that it's a lonely old place. The following are all experienced by those who are single on a regular basis..
Being hungover and having no one to hold you
The dog can only do so much.
Your parents picking you up from the airport
..just feels wrong
Being at the single table at 21st's
Expect to have to make conversation with every odd ball and family relative..
Getting one card from your mum and dad is pathetic after the age of 8..
Little explanation needed..
No one to bring to parties
No surprise 'just because you're special' gifts
Yes we will admit these rarely come but in theory.
No one to recreate the kissing scenes from The Notebook and Dirty Dancing with
Again no real person is actually going to do this but we like to think they might.
Will I end up alone? Will I always have to pay for my own dinner? Will I be the spinster friend in my group? Such worries are enough to plague a young person's mind..
Being the third wheel
No excuse to stay in
The night you stay in could be the night you were suppose to meet your future husband, and now someone else is going to marry him just because you stayed in, so you have to go out every single night..
Arrive into the restaurant, spot hideous guy. Know he is your blind date.. #FML..
Too much time to yourself
The stress of trying to get laid
You're out, you're getting frantic.. Where are the hot guys, how can I make this happen now so I can relax and enjoy the rest of my night?
The necessary grooming and expense
Maybe being in a relationship isn't so shit after all..
