Valentine's Day was a day before, and some of us went through a depressing time being single and alone while some of us had an incredible time with bae getting great gifts. Thank God, it is February, 15 now and everyone went back to their regular schedule, not putting any heart-shaped objects everywhere. Congrats to people in a relationship who were with their bae and had a romantic V-Day. Sorry for the people not in a relationship who spent the whole period feeling lonely and depressed. Of course, it is not a big deal to be single on Valentine's Day because the torture is only for a day. However, it gives you the feeling of loneliness when seen that much. You suddenly realize how lonely you are and how bad being single feels like seeing lovebirds everywhere. Sometimes, you hate it too much, not only on Valentine's Day but also on a regular day. And, you can never know when you will have to face it. Sometimes, certain moments make you hate being single. Then, you want to end your single life, start a relationship and get married.
When you see your friends in a relationship, you hate being single. If your friends get into a relationship, you will see how it will affect you. You will not have many chances to see them like old days because your friends will be spending nearly all of their time with their partners. Even if you see your friends as much as you want, you probably will have to see their partner all time as well. They will always talk about their partners naturally, but it might bother you because you have no news to give your friends. So, you try to change the subject and think how lonely you are. Being single is the worst when you are a third wheel. There is no way to explain what a third wheel feels like, but they cannot even imagine it. Especially when your best friend has a relationship, you just want to have a partner no matter who.
When you get a wedding invitation with +1, you get sad a lot thinking you have no one to take there. Most importantly, think there will be a couple, and you will be celebrating their love and relationship while you have nothing to celebrate. You accept your punishment for being single gracefully and go there alone. You can cancel it by telling them you are sick and spend your whole day in pajamas, too. Avoiding them does not make you feel better, though. You try sleeping and shutting down your consciousness because it is the only way not to think about it.
When the date is February 14 (Every Year), you want to hit every heart-shaped object you see. Well, Valentine's Day is the worst day of the whole year for single people, and no one can claim otherwise. Everything you see is red or heart-shaped that gives you the idea that everyone has a relationship except you. It is natural to wish for a partner on that day, do not feel bad about it because everything seems that people having a relationship are getting awarded for not being single. You will feel miserable anyway on that day, so try to avoid every kind of human contact and stay at home abstaining from social media, of course.
When you have to cook, you might give up cooking immediately. You can realize you feel depressed about being single and lose your appetite. When you have to cook, you need to make the measurements for one person, one person only. That's what makes you realize you are alone and will eat alone, and you will get lost in silence while eating. Yeah, it is strange for a meal to make you go through a process like this, but it is true. That's why singles never cook.
When you go on an awkward date, you question why you need to go through this to have a relationship. You realize relationships are not easy to find and require time. You might even lose all your hope for finding a partner. You want to have someone not go through this awkward and painful process. It hurts to be single while you are a great person. Sometimes, it makes you think that you might be too good for everyone, and you will die alone.
When you see a cute couple, you suddenly realize what is missing in your life: a partner. You think you could look as sweet as they do. Seeing a couple in love makes you believe you will not be happy without a partner. You get jealous of them, naturally. The cuter they are, the sadder you get. You should turn your head and keep walking until they disappear as your sorrow.
When you get scared at night, you regret not having a partner. When you hear a noise at night and get frightened, you think you need someone to tell you that it is just noise and there is nothing to worry about. Just stay strong and not let the noise or your relationship status take you down. You will find that person who will tell you not to worry about eventually.
When someone asks about your relationship status, it drives you crazy, right? Another question follows it usually asking why you are single. Come on! How do you expect me to give you a reason? These questions only make you uncomfortable, and you want to have a partner. You are already feeling upset about being single, and these questions make you hate it instead.
When you have to reach the salt at the dinner table, you wish you could ask someone to pass the salt. It is so sad to eat alone anyway, but being aware of and thinking about it is the worst. I wish you had someone that could pass the salt. Be hopeful, you will find someone to pass the salt sooner or later, or you will get used to getting it yourself.
When you do not leave the house for days and try to find human contact asap, you want to have a partner with whom you can chat even without leaving the house. People might want to stay away from the outside world and stay at home for some time. However, that does not mean they want to spend their day without hearing any voice. Having a partner solves this problem, and realizing it makes you feel a little worse if you do not have one.
