20 Things You Need To Stop Saying To Happily Single People Immediately

11. “Just wait until you meet the right guy.”

Mhmm, OK.

12. “Maybe if you lowered your expectations…”

13. “Put yourself out there.”

WHAT DOES THAT EVEN MEAN. Put myself out there… If by “out there” you mean going out and engaging with society on a daily basis, I’m already doing that, thanks. If it means walking down the street singing, “I’M SINGLE, PLEASE LOVE ME, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WILL I EVER FIND LOVE?!” then call me crazy, but I’d rather not.

Yup… What’s your point?

15. “You’ll become a crazy cat lady if you’re not careful!”

Dude, life goal right there.

Leave the fish out of this, for once in your life.

17. “Love happens when you least expect it.”

So do plane crashes, the chicken pox, natural disasters and nuclear meltdowns, but you don’t see me harping on about those.

18. “Are you seeing anyone?”

Well, I’m seeing you right now, is that what – no? OK.

Whoa, I’m not Ann. Lady, you’ve got the wrong spinster.

20. “I don’t know how you do it.”

I have genuinely heard this one, which is pretty upsetting because being single really isn’t that hard…? Being alone is pretty awesome. Relationships can be pretty awesome too. But how can you expect to be happy with someone else if you aren’t happy with yourself?
