10 Reasons Why Being The Only Single Friend In College Sucks

Being single is supposed to be fun, especially when you’re far away studying in college.

College is about meeting new people, learning ideas, experimenting and all that good stuff.

But then the unexpected happens, when all your friends suddenly get themselves tangled in some shitty thing called commitment.

Here are the 10 reasons why being single in college is the absolute worst thing ever:



You know that one overachieving friend who lives close by that you would always study with. Well that officially comes to an end, since she now has a smart-ass engineering majoring boyfriend who can do all her math homework for her.



Then there’s always that friend who’s your neighbor that would come to your place literally everyday and you guys would talk shit, Netflix and chill and smoke weed with. Then suddenly, she disappears because now she actually have someone to do all that with, and that will also provide sex.

8: You never have anyone to party with anymore. Because even now, your “wild” friends are too caught up being housewives. I mean, why go out and get shit faced when u can argue about bullshit every night?

You never have anyone to go out to eat with anymore, because all your friends are getting home cooked meals with from their lovers!!! YAY

6: Whenever your friend finally make plans and she BRINGS the boyfriend. It’s just not the same and it’s super awkward because you feel like her boyfriend is definitely judging you.



You feel like your their boyfriend low-key doesn’t like you just because your the single friend, therefore you are psycho and a bad influence.



When your not keeping yourself busy, it makes you feel like you need to be in a relationship just because your bored and you want someone to feed you too.



Whenever you hang out with your taken friends they always try to set you up with some weirdo and 9/10 it ends up being one of the worst dates ever.



You come to realize college was a lie.



But the absolute best is when you and your friend do finally get some girl time, they spend the entire evening talking about how miserable they are.
