8 Things You Can Relate To If You’re The Only Single Guy In Your Group
If there is anything in this world that can make you feel worse than being single – it is being the only single guy in your group of committed friends. While your friends are busy with their ‘significant other’, you are too tied up maintaining your serious relationship with Netflix, pizza and beer. Well, we feel you bro!
You would be surprised at how there is not one friend who is single, everyone, I repeat everyone is dating except for you. In fact, by now you have actually lost the count of all the couples in your group and those outside the group. It’s like, if you were to be given money for each friend who is committed, you would be a millionaire by now.
You are always regarded as a third wheel that is carried wherever they go. In fact, those around you often doubt of you three being in a love triangle since you are always together. But, when the same person i.e. YOU are seen with every other friend and his partner, your family starts looking at you in sympathy for being forever single. If you can relate to all these things then we are sure that you will also relate to the following struggles that only you know to be true.
1 You Are Not Counted As A Human Anymore, You Are Synonymous To A Wheel Third wheel, fifth wheel, seventh wheel…and the list just goes on. You are like this forever alone guy (or should we say an accessory) who has to be a part of all the outings and trips that your friends take with their partners and there is no escaping it. Seems, odd numbers looked better only in the Maths textbooks.
2 Thanks To Your Buddy, You Hate Surprises And Visits AND Them For you it was a game night with drinks, but for your friend it was a perfect opportunity to get laid with his girlfriend. The worst part is that he reveals his plan to you while standing at your door. Things get tougher since you can’t say no to them and you definitely can’t entertain their wish. ‘Dilemma’ is just an understatement here.
3 You Have Seen More Than What You Could Have, If Been In A Relationship You being single does not affect your vast knowledge about couples and relationship since you have the first-hand experience in dealing with this sh*t. Be it the fights or arguments or giving relationship advices to them; you know it all. With the knowledge you now have, you can start your own counseling agency and can actually charge them for those valuable advices.
4 People Look At You With Hopes That Someone Would Join You
Initially it was embarrassing to ask the restaurant manager to book a table for seven or nine people but now you have got used to it. What’s painful is when the other customers or waiters look at the empty seat next to you in hopes that your girlfriend might join you soon while your friends are busy romancing.
5 ‘Wait My Friend Is Committed; I Am Single…Wait Don’t Go, Please’ You get super pissed when a girl walks past you and rejects your advances because she assumes that you too are taken, thanks to your couples’ brigade. And even if the cupid accidently looks at you then your evil friends make sure that the girl you like believes that you are not single.
6 You Are The Butt Of Jokes And Sympathy Your friends just don’t seem to get it why you are single and so you either end up being the joke of the party or an object of sympathy for them. “Don’t worry you will find someone” or “Chill man, we are there for you bro”; words like these only make it worse for you. To avoid such conversations you start cracking lame jokes on single hood (Now we know Chandler Bing wasn’t fictional).
7 Meeting Them Is An Unavoidable Ride To Hell While people get excited about meeting their friends, you actually dread meeting them because you know what all is going to happen – your friend fighting with his girlfriend, you trying to stay neutral but forced to take sides, them making out and totally sidelining you and you looking away in sheer frustration. You just can’t escape it.
8 You Get Your Revenge By Photo-bombing Their Cute Couple Photos No matter how frustrating things are, you get your fair share your entertainment and revenge by ruining their couple photos and selfies. While they are busy with their PDA to get that one perfect couple picture, all it takes is your goofy laugh to ruin that forever. You should definitely try it, if you haven’t already; it’s worth seeing their expression after looking at the picture.
