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:
2. When you hate having a crush on someone:
3. When everyone assumes you really want a boyfriend but you actually don’t care:
4. When you like food more than boys:
5. When you try to look sexy in the summer:
6. When you have no idea what you’re doing:
7. When you start to feel really bummed out about being single:
8. When you literally don’t care about relationships:
9. When you want a significant other but you don’t want to try:
10. When you don’t feel like trying to meet anyone:

13. When you don’t NEED to date someone, you just kind of want to.
14. When a relationship is literally the last thing on your mind:
15. When you kind of want to date but also you love the Internet.
16. When you’re too busy for a boyfriend:
