25 Times Tumblr Perfectly Understood Your Struggles Of Being Single

I haven’t been single in almost five years, but that doesn’t mean I don’t remember what it’s like. Before I met my current boyfriend, I was single for about four years straight, and it was… an interesting time. I know a lot of people complain about being single, and I’m not saying that’s not valid, but I didn’t mind it! Sure, there are annoying things to deal with, but being on your own time with no one else to worry about really isn’t that bad. I think it gets a bad rep sometimes.

That said, there are still some things that suck about being single (just like there are some things that suck about being in a relationship). Sometimes it’s not even the “being single” that sucks, it’s dealing with people talking about you being single. Tumblr users totally get it. Here are 25 times Tumblr perfectly understood the struggles of being single: 

 

1. When you’re kind of talking to someone but don’t want to come on too strong:
