    And you're like, "LOL, I'M SINGLE THOUGH..."

    3. But then you give advice like an old sage even though you're definitely not in a relationship and probably have no idea what you're talking about.



    4. Your friends tell you all their relationship struggles, then when it's your turn you're like, "I tried a new pizza place."


    Which is BASICALLY just as exciting.

    5. You have to help plan out dates and pick out presents without actually receiving any of your own.
