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.
No one wants to be this guy.When you're the last single person in the friend group, people pity you whether you're totally content with your single status or not.
"Thanks for the trash"This is so true! Married friends should stop printing and sending those cards, and people who receive those cards should stop pretending to like them.

Alone at a partyRaise your hand if you've been that one person at a table watching two other people make out in front of you. If you're Antoni from Queer Eye, I better see that hand raised.

"Excellent at being single"Knowing how to take care of your friends just makes you a great person. Not a mom or a wife specifically.
I like texting my married friends "Where da hoes at?!" around 9pm, when I know they're trying to put their kids down for the night.— J Lee (@J Lee)1364700345.0
