If you ask me, living the single life gets an unfairly bad rap. Sure, it's nice to be in love and have a partner who can tackle life with you, but there are also a lot of perks of being single, and you shouldn't get down on yourself just because you're not dating anyone at the moment. When you're not attached to someone, you have time to focus on personal growth and your own goals, and perhaps more importantly, you also don't have to share your fries with anyone else. The bottom line? You don't need a relationship to be happy, but no one's judging if you sometimes secretly wish you had someone to snuggle up with.
Especially if lots of your friends are in relationships, it might sometimes seem like a Super Huge Deal to be single in your 20s. But the fact of the matter is that there's nothing wrong with living the single life, and you're most definitely not the only one dealing with the occasional loneliness. Thanks to the hashtag #SingleBecause that's trending on Twitter, thousands of users are opening up about the reasons they aren't dating anyone. Some are sad, some are funny, some are self-deprecating — but all of them are in some way relatable to the rest of us single folks.
If you're feeling a little down in the dumps about flying solo, let your fellow single folks cheer you up (after all, it's nice to have confirmation that you're not alone in your struggle). Here are 15 of the most relatable tweets from the #SingleBecause hashtag — feel free to read these while doing whatever you damn well please, because being single means you don't have to answer to anyone but yourself.
