10 Annoying Things About Being the Single Friend
I have had my fair share of friendship groups over the years, from high school to college to university, and in all of them I have almost always been that one single friend! Now over the years I have gotten used to this status, but I can tell you that while it has it's perks - wait who am I kidding?! Being the single friend has no perks, it is annoying as hell! So on that note here are 10 very ANNOYING things about being the single friends and *hint hint* to my own coupled off friends take note and please stop asking me "When are you going to meet a guy?" I hope you enjoy it!

10 Annoying Things About Being the Single Friend
1. THE PITY - Just because I do not have a boyfriend and am not in a relationship does not give you the free pass to treat me like an invalid and pity me! I am perfectly fine as a singleton and if I needed the pity or someone to feel sorry for me, you would hear about it - trust me! So please stop with the aww's and the ooh's and the looks of pity, I'M FINE!

2. THE SET-UP's - Now this one doesn't happen to me often, but I do get offered. So firstly, I have not asked to be set up with anyone, and secondly why do you think I even need setting up in the first place?! While some people have found their life partners through set-up's, for me they are just plain weird and awkward for both parties. It just feels forced and I don't like it! I mean you guys say that we have things in common, but the chances are I'm not going to end up liking a guy, just because he  fan girls over  Harry Potter as much as I do...However... if he's in Ravenclaw house, that's a different story - then we can talk!

3. THE WHEN WILL YOU GET A GUY QUESTION - I cannot stand this question and whenever I hear it, I start to fizz and boil a little on the inside, ahaha! I know you guys mean well, when you ask us single folks this question, but it genuinely just makes us feel a whole lot worse. A lot of the time we're asking ourselves the exact same question and driving ourselves crazy with critique and insecurity woes! And some of us (like moi) aren't even looking for a guy, we're perfectly happy on our own. So the answer to this annoying question: I will get a guy when I'm good and ready thanks! So stop asking!

4. THE PUNCHY TYRE STATUS - In simpler terms the third wheel status! The odd one out, the black sheep, the red-headed step child. Some couples are really good with this and don't make you feel like the odd one out at all, but others are just not "cool" couples and PDA all up in your singleton space, and it's just not cool guys - not COOL!

5. THE YOU WON'T UNDERSTAND...LINE - The whole theory that you won't understand something because they're in a relationship and you're not. The you won't understand what it's like to have to fight over the duvet. The you won't understand our fights because you're single! The you won't understand my boy issues because you are inexperienced in the male species" - Umm excuse me?! I probably know a lot more about guys than you do, all those years of watching Gossip Girl and 90210 weren't just for entertainment you know, it was an education in the subject of boy kind!

6. THE WHY HAVEN'T YOU FOUND ANYONE YET - Similar to the 'when will you get a guy?' question and is as equally annoying. I don't know, why don't you enlighten me! If I knew the answer to this question I probably wouldn't be single!

7. THE LEFT-OUT MOMENTS - I remember when I used to actually get sad when all my coupled friends would gather and I was the one person alone, sadly staring on at them as if they were a juicy hamburger. Well now I don't care, I love those moments, because it means more free time for myself. In other words it's an excuse for me to stay in on a Friday night, stick on gossip girl and eat all the hamburgers my stomach can take!

8. THE YOUR STANDARDS ARE TOO HIGH STATEMENT - Oh I'm sorry if "making sure that I'm going to be dating a man and not an immature slob is too high standard!" But I will not settle for the first Tom, Dick or Harry that comes along, I'm going to wait! High as my standards may be, at least I'll know I'm going to get someone I can be happy with. 
9. THE I CAN FIX IT APPROACH - So you're in a relationship, congratulations, you're now a "relationship expert". I have no idea why people in relationships think they can suddenly fix your life and all your relationship woes! Umm...No, just no, you're not Dr Phil!
10. THE YOU'LL MEET SOMEONE WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT - So I've just popped in to Mcdonalds on the way home from work, will I meet my Mr Right there? Huh? Will I? No? But isn't that where I would least expect it?! - I just can't with this statement...I just can't! -_- 

 Although this post is intended for humour, there was a time, when the things in this post really made me feel down and had me questioning why I didn't have a significant other. Nowadays I look back on that time and laugh! I laugh because I am so happy right now and I have no intention of being in a relationship, I'm actually very happy being single! If a guy comes into my life great, if he doesn't that's great too! I think what people need to realise is that not all single people are unhappy and not all couples are happy! And the same applies the other way around! I hope you guys enjoyed reading this post, while a lot of the things are my own opinions, it was intended for humour so please don't take offence :) 


Are you the single friend? Do you sometimes get annoyed by these things?
