They say that the grass is always greener on the other side. When you’re in a relationship, you can sometimes feel stuck. When you’re single, you can feel pretty lonely. The big difference is that when you’re single, people laugh at your pain. So that’s fun!

But the ultimate redeeming irony of it all is that even though we’re single, we’re not alone. There are plenty of uncoupled folks on Twitter making great jokes about it, so we can stop crying into our pillows for a minute and emit sad chuckles instead. Let the depressive chuckling begin!

12. Who what when where how

It’s an older burn, but it checks out.

11. Nothing in-between

Miss me with that middling mess.

10. Popped heart

When your breakfast gets more action than you.

9. Hugs AND drugs

The endless conundrum.

8. Like Freddy Kruger

If you cry in your dreams, you cry in real life.

7. Reality bites

We’re all gonna turn into pragmatists real fast.

6. Single and ready to deny it

They say dress for the job you want, not the job you have.

5. Arrested development

You’re not gonna change him.

4. Admit defeat

There’s a song for every occasion.

3. Status symbol

Yeah and I’m in a relationship with this box of Cheez-Its, who cares?

2. Love languages

We established this convention way back in the days of AIM.

1. Not today, Satan

It’s fun to pretend.

If you’re single, I hope you feel OK about it. Remember, you’re a person and you’ve got worth all on your own. Also most of these other people suck, so, really you’ve done well to avoid them. There should be a medal for singlehood or something. We’re the real heroes.

What’s the best/worst thing about being single?
