10. No one is ever listening to you. I’m not really sure which one happens the most – repeating yourself, or just ending the conversation in the middle of your sentence.
9. You’re most likely to get ditched. Even when you come in a group, everyone has to leave for their own personal after party and you’ll never be invited.
8. Things can get really awkward really quickly and there’s nothing you can do it about it. You kind of just sit there while repeatedly clearing your throat super loudly and making unnecessary noise to get noticed.
7. You will always be a third wheel. The worst is when you plan to hangout then unexpected guest show up and you have to pretend it’s okay. “No, it’s fine. You’re boyfriend can tag along. You only spend every waking moment with him, I’m not annoyed at all.”
6. Being the single friend is probably one of the only times that you can feel extremely lonely even around people. You might as well just be invisible.
5. Going out sucks. You basically start to decline invites because you already know you’re going to end up being the odd one out.
4. You get slightly depressed when thinking about how long you’ll probably be alone and what color your cane is going to be when you walk down the aisle.
3. The number one lie the single friend will tell is how absolutely fabulous being single actually is. No one to hold you down, no rules, blah blah blah. But, they always forget to mention things like no one to cuddle with, no cute dates, or just being “in love.”
2. Reevaluating your life becomes a regular activity. There’s a mental list you’ve created of why things don’t work out in your relationships and what you need to change to find your one
true love (LOL).
1. After so long you dramatically come to the terms that no one wants you and you’ll be alone watching Netflix forever. Then you accept it and realize it’s not that bad, for now anyway.
