Being single is pretty all right; you get the whole bed to yourself, have more money around Christmas time, and don’t have to share pizza, however coping with so called ‘advice’ from the happily settled brigade is a completely unnecessary evil.

1. ‘So….are you seeing anyone? How’s the love life?’

2. ‘Why are you even on Tinder? Isn’t that just for people who want a shag’

5. ‘Maybe you just need to take a break from apps and online dating and let things happen naturally.’

Which isn’t too bad a comment to make….it’s just when, after three months of more disappointment they say…

6. ‘I think you’re just not putting yourself out there enough.’

Just stop.

7. ‘Perhaps you’re being too picky.’

9. ‘You’re still young, you have all the time in the world.’
