21 Non-Bullshit Things You'll Miss About Being Single

There's nothing worse than people in relationships saying they "miss being single". It's insincere BS (unless they are legitimately considering a break up). However, here at SRSLY, we genuinely know about the perks of single life. The ones that aren't "wild nights out" or "hilarious dates" (hilarious stories do not hilarious experiences make). Take a look at our top 20 things you'll miss when you depart single street for a supposedly better life in coopleville.


1.  The serenity of knowing you're not pregnant.

So while we all know it's lovely to meet someone and couple up, be sure to enjoy your time as a single lady! It's a time for friends, food, frolics and flaxseed. And maybe the odd bit of midnight swiping... cos y'know, being single is fab, but Badoo's also got millions of members to be browsing.
