Seriously. Just stop it. There’s enough of that behavior on VH1’s Wicked Single, debuting on — you guessed it — St. Patrick’s Day 2013.

1. Pre-gaming at home, then showing up to the club brimming with wine and despair

3. Assuming everyone wants a piece of your action

Make no mistake, this applies to dudes too.

5. Second-guessing yourself

6. Winning drinking contests

(Because ultimately, nobody wins.)

7. Trying to ooze sexiness in all the mundane things you do

12. Seeing everything as a metaphor* for how single you are.

(*We are aware that this is a simile, not a metaphor. This is just like our last relationship where… never mind.)

13. Constantly dwelling on what might have been.

14. Reading a little too much into everything

15. Freaking out and hiding from your ex

16. Having impossibly high standards

17. Settling
