Are you so perplexed by the sad, sorry state of your love life that following advice plucked from a trending Twitter hashtag seems like a pretty solid idea?
You’re in luck, because on Thursday, the good people of Twitter took it upon themselves to enlighten you on why you’re still sans-relationship using the hashtag #YouSingleBecause.
Most of the responses were as silly as you’d expect (it’s a grammatically-challenged hashtag, not a TED talk), blaming everything from your decidedly unsexy music taste for the reason you’re single:
#YouSingleBecause you always try to put on Bon Iver or the Antlers to "set the mood."
— Anthony Fantano (@theneedledrop) April 10, 2014
…to your steadfast belief that pizza and Wi-Fi are totally worthy stand-ins for a relationship:
Some responses were more enlightening, though, like this under-140-character breakdown of how warped our dating expectations can be:
#YouSingleBecause You rant about being a "nice guy" but forget that being "nice" to a woman doesn't obligate her to be with you.
— Charles Clymer (@cmclymer) April 10, 2014
…or this tweet, which perfectly sums up why a lot of us choose to be single:
Well-put, right? For more takes on why so many of us can’t land a relationship — or would rather stay relationship-free — check out the tweets below, then head to the comments and tell us the reason you’re currently single.
#YouSingleBecause No longer going to settle. Want to be encouraged, accepted and loved.
