You go crazy when you know some of the top myths about single people
How many times do your friends are in relationships - bless their hearts - think that your singlehood is an automatic cry for help and an automatic opportunity for them to play out their matchmaker fantasies?
It seems like single people for various reasons, have been the butt of jokes for a while now. There have been a number of misconceptions about them, some bizarre, while some plain silly. Not only are these preconceived notions myths, they are also very annoying for those whom they're targeted to.
Here is a list of all that people get wrong when they look at singles:
1. All singles want is a relationship
All single people do are look for ways to not stay single. They are desperate for a relationship and are constantly looking for ways to date someone. No one ever considers that people often 'choose' to remain single as well. That they'd rather wait for love to come along or simply not be with someone because they don't want to.
2. Singles are lonely
Another common myth often doing the rounds is that if you are single, you are probably lonely. There will be this mysterious vibe attached to you as to why you don't want to couple up. According to society, you are absolutely alone if you are not in a relationship. Like friends, family and other company doesn't count at all.
HEY! The biggest misconceptions about single people are.
3. Singles have some serious issues
If you are single, there is some problem with you which everyone will try to resolve. You're either homosexual or you're undergoing some trauma which has given you commitment issues. Either ways, if you're single, chances are that you are really messed up in your head.
4. Singles are self obsessed
It is another myth that single people do not get into relationships because they only care for themselves. Considering the fact that people assume that carring and love only comes for a significant other, it is often believed that single people are plainly self centred and cannot put anyone else before themselves.
5. Singles are jealous of people in relationships
Sometimes when we see a couple hugging or just being in love, they might feel a twang of longing. But that disappears when they are reminded of all the other amazing things in life. Moreover, they are often happier for couples than jealous. Also, they have the best relationship advices so you better keep them around.
6. Singles are ugly
"You're so pretty, how are you single?" "A handsome dude/girl like you, you definitely have a girlfriend/boyfriend". It is almost like single people are the leftovers no one took. A lot of good looking people can be single because of this one thing known as 'choice'. The ones not dating are definitely not the ones no one wants to date!
