10 Tweets by Single People That Prove the Struggle Is Real | 22 Words

Being single can be a very sucky experience.

On one hand, you have all sorts of free time – on the other, you have no one to spend said free time with. Then there's all the couples always walking past, rubbing their happiness in your face...

It's really not ideal, sometimes.

Here are 10 tweets that perfectly show the sucky side of being single.

1. Dogs count

First of all, how dare you? Dogs ARE our significant others.
They're always by our sides, and they give us all the unconditional love we could ask for. How dare this person dismiss the dog like that?

2. Mutual hate is mutual love

So true. You'll know you've found the one when you have someone who can deadpan snark just as hard as you can. That's a fact.
Also, don't you hate it when those loving couples prance by all lovingly? They're literally the worst.

3. Everyone needs someone to help shoulder the burden

Sometimes, you need someone to share the burden of the household... even if that household consists of just one person.
True story. It sucks to always cook and clean by yourself.

4. It sucks to cry alone

Honestly, what single person HASN'T cried once or twice after eating dinner alone for the umpteenth time by themselves?
Sometimes, you just want someone to hold you.... and spend Valentines Day together with. Is that too much to ask?

5. Even the bathroom is judging you

Oh, the irony. Everywhere you turn, there's engagements...
Even the freaking bathroom is engaged. It's enough to give you a complex.

6. So true

What is one nightstand anyway? Everyone knows you should always have two – you know, to complete the tableau.
But seriously, it sucks when you're surrounded by all kinds of braggarts bragging about their twenty thousand conquests when you can't even get one.

7. There are plenty of fish in the sea

Doesn't it always seem like there's so many people out there, but none of them want you?
This picture perfectly sums it up. No, seriously. Next time your mom asks why you're single, show her this.

8. PDA Don't

It always happens. The moment you're single, you walk out and see tons of people engaging in PDA – holding hands, kissing...
It's enough to make you hurl. It's really THAT gross.

9. Crushes hurt

This tweet is so true. You know you shouldn't fall for that person, you know it's gonna break your heart, but you do so anyway.
Also, why do we do these things to ourselves? Why???

10. The most painful truth of all...

When you're single, particularly if you've been so for a long time, you start to get the awful feeling that you're unlovable and unwanted.
Don't listen to it – you're an amazing and beautiful person. Your dog definitely thinks so.
