Being single isn’t all that bad. People make it out to be this horrible time when you cry yourself to sleep and find yourself getting weirdly affectionate with your animals. Honestly, being single isn’t bad at all. In fact, there are more perks than negative sides of being alone for a whole host of reasons.
First, you don’t have to tolerate another person for 24 hours a day. Second, you get to eat the entire large pizza without getting any pushback or gym memberships flying at you. Third, you don’t hav— wait, why don’t you just read the article to see all the hilarious people being as single as a Pringle.
Life’s A Rollercoaster
Anyone who tells you that life ISN’T a rollercoaster just isn’t doing it right. Yes, sometimes it’s a literal rollercoaster, while other times it’s an emotional rollercoaster. This single girl is experiencing both of those rides and she’s just trying to not throw up.
She doesn’t love the drop and it does make her feel sick, but the couples around her making out surely make her more nauseous than the ride itself.
Relationship Is A State Of Mind
Being in a relationship has its perks, but none of those perks can’t be faked. Like, you can go out for dinner by yourself and your food is going to taste the exact same as if you went with your girlfriend or boyfriend.
Yes, couple pictures are really cute too, but you can take cute “caught me sleeping” pictures by yourself and they look just as good. Just take a look at this masterclass.
Siracha Is A Better Option
You’re obviously blinded by love if you don’t think that Siracha sauce is better than a boyfriend or girlfriend. You never have to worry about the sauce talking back to you, getting mad at you, or cheating on you.
You don’t have to worry about your Siracha being sassy or spicy to you, figuratively, not literally. Lastly, you can dress up like a bottle of it for Halloween, something you can’t do with a human. It’s an easy choice.
When Your Ex Needs A Little Reminder
When your ex-boyfriend needs a little reminder of what he’s missing, you have to go to some drastic lengths. This girl is trying to make it seem like she’s happy and moved on, but this picture is telling us the exact opposite.
This is probably going to backfire when he opens this Snapchat picture and looks at the head for more than one second and realizes how fake it looks.
Single And Alone
If there are cobwebs on your passenger door because no one is getting in with you, take that as a positive. You don’t have to worry about driving anyone anywhere and you don’t have to play music that you don’t like just to please your boyfriend or girlfriend.
In fact, the most important part of always driving alone is that you don’t have a backseat driver yelling at you every time there’s a red light 70 feet ahead.
“So I Was Saying, Critters”
If you’re that single cat lady, you can relate to this picture a lot. You come home drunk from the bar, alone, again, and you just vent to your cat. Sometimes you just have to let it out. Cats are very good listeners AND they don’t offer any of the unwanted advice that humans give.
Does your cat care? No. Does your cat tolerate you because it wants some late night kibble? Yes.
Self Love Is The Best Love
When you’re single and lonely, you have to find the little ways to comfort yourself. Let’s get one thing straight, self-love is the best love, right? Well, no, but if you say it out loud ten times you might actually start to believe it.
There’s being alone, and then there’s “holding hands with your own feet” alone which, is an entirely different level. I just hope they wash their hands before taking another bite.
This Is Why We Have Trust Issues
If you’re from the MSN Messenger days, you know this conversation is too real. When your crush says that they love you and you’re about to say it back — this is the type of mistake that can ruin a life.
Now, you have to play it off as if you weren’t going to say anything and that you think it’s funny when in reality you want to go into the corner and cry.
It’s Merely A Mindset
Being in a relationship is becoming a mindset, and a mindset only. The line is slowly fading and no one is talking about it. Like, what is a relationship? People are having “lovers” that come in the form of pool inflatables, and no one bats an eye.
If you want to be in a relationship with a wig, you do you boo. I don’t see anything weird or awkward here.
Milkshake Ain’t Working
Kelis just lied to our faces and no one is talking about it. When she sang her hit song “Milkshake” it was the talk of the town and girls thought that they found the life hack that brought all the guys to the yard.
It was a good attempt, but if you’ve ever tried leaving a milkshake in the yard, you’ll find out that they don’t come as often as you’d like.
One of the overlooked perks of being single is that you don’t usually have to worry about going on the kiss cam. If you’re not at the game with anyone, they aren’t going to single you out on the jumbotron.
If they do find you sitting alone, you have an excuse to take a huge chug of your beer or eat your food in front of thousands of people. It’s a really special moment.
Much Better Than A Ring
If your boyfriend gives you a ring when he proposes, you throw that thing back in his face. I don’t know if you’ve heard, but millennials aren’t buying diamonds anymore.
Not only are they incredibly expensive, but they don’t have any use. Why not start giving donuts instead? I promise you that she’ll be happier. You can’t eat a diamond, and if you do then you’re probably going to have a tough time digesting it. Not fun.
Pigs Live Their Best Lives
Now, this comparison doesn’t necessarily mean EVERY pig, but the pigs that live on the tropical island have the best lives. They get to eat anything they want, live on a beach, and swim in crystal clear water.
Heck, I’ll take being that pig any day of the week over being the couple who has their dumb kiss and then boards a plane to Philadelphia two hours later to end up back in the cold.
At Least Be Useful
If you’re going to be the third wheel, at least be useful. There’s no point of being around a gross PDA couple and just standing or sitting there awkwardly. At least be useful. At least look like you were brought on this date for a reason.
This guy no longer looks like the third wheel, he looks like he was specifically brought onto this date because he has very strong arms that hold an umbrella very well.
When You’ve Hit Rock Bottom
Some people can just live the single life and have no plans to ever leave. It’s comfortable, cheap and drama free. But, there comes a point when it’s too much to handle. For example, if you’re a single dude walking down the street and you see a homeless couple making out — it’s a low point.
When a homeless person has a better love life than you, it’s time to rethink your life.
She’ll Have The Most Fun At The Bachelorette Party
When your friends start to get married and you’re the chronically single one, you have to be able to look at the upsides. So, let’s dive into them. First of all, you can have the most fun at the bachelorette party and that’s the best part of getting married anyway.
Second of all, you don’t have to worry about planning a wedding, which is generally a disaster. You can just drink at the open bar.
Let’s Hope This Isn’t In The Winter
If you’ve ever tried to kiss a pole in the winter (which I hope you haven’t) then you know this is risky. You’ve probably seen it in the movies, but it’s actually true. Your tongue gets stuck and when you try to pull it off, you basically have to pull your entire tongue out of your mouth.
If this is in the summer (which it looks like it is) then this is just straight up gross.
She’ll Learn To Accept It
This little girl should find solace in the fact that she’s not going to be mad about being the third wheel for much longer. Yes, it takes some getting used to, but as long as you can find the positives you’ll be fine.
So let’s explore a few of those in this situation. Little kids put their mouth on everything and if they’re kissing each other, they’re both going to be sick by the next day.
Hello Cat Lady
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be a cat lady who’s drunk all time. First of all, you get to be with cats all day, which is a win in itself. Second of all, your cat isn’t going to judge you when you’re drunk and alone like some of your friends are.
Lastly, when you’re walking down the wedding aisle, there are a lot of brides who instantly regret their decision and are dying inside. No one has ever had a bad time in the wine aisle.
This Is A Smart Option
Honestly, there’s nothing wrong with this option. Yes, there are a lot of fish in the sea, but sometimes those fish stink and you just need to be on your own. Marrying yourself has so many advantages that are completely overlooked.
You don’t have to sign a prenuptial agreement, which takes away a lot of stress. The most exciting part is that you get to pick out a dress and get tailored for a suit.
