22 Things Single People Just Get

I got 99 problems but a duvet war ain't one.

Posted on

1. When you're single, you only really have to worry about yourself.


You can eat, sleep, shop, and live your life exactly how you want to.

2. There's no obligation to spend time with people you don't want to.

No more smiling politely as the scintillating stories of Shagaluf conquests are trotted out again.

3. You have way more money to spend on yourself.


As Cee Lo Green said: "'Cause being in love with your ass ain't cheap."

4. You don't have to check in with someone constantly.

5. You have your bed all to yourself and can sleep any damn way you like.

All that bed space. All. For. You.

All that bed space. All. For. You.

6. You don't have to deal with daily petty squabbles over dumb but innocuous comments.

7. Or big time bust ups.

8. You have more time to devote to healthy living and exercising...

9. ...or you have much more time to dick around on the internet in your pants.

10. It’s easier to maintain other relationships in your life.


All time is friend time.

11. You never have to compromise on what you want to watch, eat or do.

Being made to watch the rugby! I have wine and chocolate though so it's ok πŸ‘πŸ»#icandothis

12. There's nothing worse than making a meal and not getting your share.

Being single means never being cheated out of your portion.

13. You never have to worry about waking up in a house without your arsenal of bathroom supplies.

Some people don't understand that moisturiser is an absolute essential.

14. And you can leave it all just the way you like.

Looks like a mess but you know where everything is.

15. You have fewer people to consult on big decisions.

If you want to go travelling for three months on a whim, you can!

16. No more boners in the back on an early Saturday morning.


Lady-boners or boy-boners, they're both annoying when you really want to stay asleep.

17. You can date a different person every night.

18. ...or if you can't be bothered, no one at all.


19. You can wear any kind of underwear, no matter how gross.

They're ugly but your arse cheeks feel beautifully comfortable.

20. No one else's opinion of your intimate grooming habits counts.

21. You've got the time and energy to make new friends.

I want new friends. Hit me up if you wanna be my new friend.

22. Because when you're single, you can do whatever the fuck you want.
