The hashtag #SingleBecause is a really popular trending topic on Twitter. I see it pop up once every few weeks and it’s almost always at the top of the list. In fact, I’ve rounded up the best #SingleBecause tweets in the past. Those reasons include wanting to be happy on your own before you’re with another person and jokes about ignoring chain e-mails. In other words, pretty legit reasons for being single.
But just as there are plenty of great tweets in the #SingleBecause hashtag, there are also plenty of bad ones. Being single doesn’t mean you’re an unattractive loser. It shouldn’t be something you’re embarrassed of… but judging from these tweets, you would never know that. So, here are 15 of the worst #SingleBecause tweets – or, in other words, reasons you need to completely ignore.

There is no reason to beat yourself up for being single! It doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy of attention – it just means you haven’t found the right person yet.
You're #SingleBecause you don't know what you want. You want a guy who chases after you but when someone actually does, you push him away.

Oh, hi stereotypical nice guy. OR MAYBE we just want a guy we care about and genuinely like, rather than just liking whoever likes us. Ever think of that?

Assuming an entire gender is exactly the same might be the reason you’re single. I hear people don’t appreciate that.

#SingleBecause Getting into a relationship may seem tempting but so was getting on the Titanic and look what happened there.

This is very amusing but also probably not the best way to look at all relationships.

I don’t know, I feel like there have to be some other reasons out there besides these.
#SingleBecause waiting till I'm 16 even though no one would want to date me ever
— kaitlyn (@kaitlyn_dahl) October 7, 2013
GUYS. Stop saying stuff like this! Confidence is SO important when trying to meet someone. Saying “I’m ugly” or “no one will ever like me” is never going to attract people!
– #SingleBecause in today's world you'll never be the only ONE.
— Lennie J. (@lovely_lennie) October 7, 2013
You can’t think this way! Going into dating with this mindset will practically ensure that you’ll never trust anyone.

So, you’re single because you say stuff like this, right?
