The single life can be hard, especially when there are no other single people around to hang out or help you do the things a partner would do for you. I was single for a long time, and now I have a partner, and let me tell you it is so nice to just scream, “SPIDER!” and have someone else deal with it rather than having to squish that monster myself. I guess there are other benefits to being in a relationship too… I just can’t think of any other specifics at the moment.
When you are single, you don’t really notice being single if there are other single people around. But once your single friends start finding mates and becoming lazy hermits like all people in relationships eventually do, you start to realize that being the last single person in a friend group is not necessarily all that great. It can get lonely. Luckily, there are other people out there who recognize the struggle, so you probably aren’t as alone in this as you think.
