Being single is not easy. There is so much drama in the lives of single people that it has the potential to be a popular romcom movie. Singletons derive happiness from stalking crushes and detesting couples. And this is how they assure themselves about how single-hood is better than, well, relationship-hood.
1. They put up self-deprecating posts on social media
With this, they gather other single people who agree, and then everyone whines together.
2. They’re thrilled when someone goes through a breakup
“That’s why I don’t get into such s**t” is what they say.
3. If the opposite sex gets too friendly, they assume they’re being wooed
“Oh he spoke to me, I think he likes me!” even if all said person was asking for was a pen.
4. They attend parties in the hope of ‘meeting the one’
Because you never know who’s going to bump into you when you’re carrying drinks for your friends
5. They will quietly sob in a corner at the end of a night
Alcohol will remind them of the sorrows of single-hood.
6. They question the sanity of people getting married around them
Marriages scare them. They’re happy it’s someone else and not them.
7. They find refuge in food
Food makes them happy. And they will always find a soulmate in food, whether it’s in a slice of cake or a paratha.
8. They stalk crushes online and find out all there is to know about said person of importance
Stalking others is not a waste of time. It’s a way to find ‘info’ about their crush.
9. Solo trips and travelling give them a high
They’re the ones who post a hundred pictures of their solo trips and make others jealous.
For some, posing for selfies is a favourite pastime.
11. They show they’re okay being single, but in reality they desperately want to be with someone
They have a ‘sour grapes’ attitude towards their single-hood. However in reality, they desperately want to mingle.
