In theory, being single sounds pretty damn great.
You can basically do whatever the hell you want all the time.
Whether you're trying to turn up at the club or simply binge watch Netflix in your underwear as you eat an entire pizza, flying solo means you can shamelessly do you without ever having to worry about someone judging you.
But in reality, being by yourself isn't always all it's cracked up to be.
In fact, as someone who's been perpetually single for way longer than I'd like to admit, I can tell you first hand that being bae-less gets old really fast.
Especially when you're constantly bombarded by photos of newly-engaged happy couples every time you log onto Facebook, and you can't even get that guy from Tinder to text you back, let alone put a ring on it.
Yep, after a while the single struggle starts to get pretty real, and there are only so many times you can be your BFF's designated third wheel or spend yet another cuffing season snuggling with your cat before you begin to feel like you're going to be single AF forever.
Take a look at the photos below to see 22 things that perfectly capture the single-life struggle.
