14 Things Single People Can Do That People In Relationships Can Never Do

As everyone knows, it is very important to never ever be single in your lifetime, even if only for a little bit. At least, this is what society (i.e. authority, the patriarchy, “the man,” etc.) would like you to believe–basically, by those standards. if you are not locked into a committed relationship with the promise of a ring by the time yo’re like, I don’t know, twenty-five, you are most likely doomed. Sorry, I don’t make the rules here!

But I will not stand for this! After all, I am known for nothing if not my subversive and controversial takedowns of cultural norms and oppressions. Plus, recently, I realized that there are some things you can pretty much only do if you’re single–like, being single is just as good as being Taylor Swift or Kylie “King Kylie” Jenner, if not better. So, check out these things that single people can do that people in relationships can never do:
