Being single sucks. Oh sure, I know plenty of people who enjoy the single life, and would rather be manacled to a sea mine than suffer through half an hour in a serious relationship… but I’m not one of those people. As a serial monogamist, I hate every minute of being single. I’ve been in long-term relationships a lot, and I feel far happier when I have someone to come home to and spend time with. The way I describe it is like owning a colour TV – once you have a colour picture you never want to go back to black and white. You’re still seeing the same stuff, but it all looks muted, dull and grey.
But I’m not the only one who resents their relationship status, and on the internet there are legions of disgruntled singletons who are happy to share their feelings about being lonely. If your love life is looking desolate and you feel unappreciated and unwanted, then take solace in the fact that there are plenty of other folks out there who feel exactly the same way. Want proof?
