25 Reasons You’re Still Single

I’ve been single for 424 days, that’s 60 weeks, 15 major holidays and enough of a gestational time period to grow one and a half babies. But who’s counting. There are moments that I genuinely question fate’s motives and contemplate for hours the true reasons I’m without. Other days, usually mid-documentary on ‘night terrors’ with my hands in a bowl of every type of M & M on the shelf, I find my answers in the stupid little things I do that make me the perfect candidate to be alone forever.

I have a handful of single girlfriends, who undoubtedly are also destined to a life of solitude; I couldn’t get a dog to date them if I tied a pork chop around their neck. It’s a combination of being either way too slutty or not slutty enough, mixed with social anxiety and zero interest in personal grooming. At least that’s what I thought it was. And then I started listing the reasons all of us are single. Not just me. Not just my girlfriends. But all of you “I just don’t get it’s” all over the world.

Either you have been, or you are now, but you’re single:

1. Because your wifi password is “Gettankedgetfucked”
