Heed the warnings before you’re left alone forever.
Do you like to work late because you know you have no one to go to home to? Are you the kind who avoids family gatherings because all your aunties want to set you up with their daughters? Well, you surely are on a road to being the kind of person who remains single all their life.
There are more signs to prove the theory:
You hate cuddling:
You just cannot sleep or cuddle with anyone. You do not like anyone in your bed and you take the whole space so that no one can share it with you. You have multiple pillows sleeping with you in every direction and even if it is a very large bed, there will be absolutely no space for anyone else to share.
2. You do not have confidence in yourself:
Every time someone actually flirts with you, you think it’s just some silly dare given to them. That is because you do not have confidence in yourself and your appearance. You just cannot believe that someone might actually like to know you better and start dating you. You have to understand that it’s not always a dare. Someone can actually like you.
3. You don’t like yourself:
You think no one can like you because you do not like your own self. You do not think that you are worth spending time with and even get bored spending time with your own self. You lack self love and care and are too ignorant towards your own self.
4. You cannot share food:
No one can touch your share of food and if anyone does, then they must be ready for exploding lava at the dinner table. The thought of sharing food scares you and you cannot even think of letting anyone touch your plate. Desserts are your weakness and absolutely no one, not even your best friend, can have a glimpse of your food.
5. Netflix is your one true love:
You have recently thought that Netflix knows you better than anyone else and sharing your account with anyone else would seriously mess up your algorithm. It knows exactly what you want to see and when. It doesn’t let you feel lonely in the hours of loneliness. *Continue reading to next page*
6. Shaving? No way!
You have no concern with good looks. You absolutely hate shaving and also wonder why people spend so much time removing that hair. You like to go free and natural and although you care about your hygiene, you have no concern with shaving. Either it is the beard for boys or legs for girls, shaving for a loner always remains a no-go region.
7. You hate cooking for others:
You’ve spent so much time alone that cooking for someone else seems like the hardest job in the world. You love cooking for yourself and are an expert at making single-serving meals but cooking for someone else is a tough thing. You mess up with ingredients and quantities and cannot bear the thought of having to make something for someone else.
8. Your cat is the deal-breaker:
If you ever get a suitor (which seems impossible by the way) at your home, you see your cat’s reaction and determine if it likes the person or not. Your cat decides if you should date the person or not because you cannot do it on your own. Having zero expertise in this field, you give value to your cat’s opinion more than your own.
9. Your cat hates everyone:
Uh-oh. The reason why you are not with someone as yet is because your cat hates every single person on Earth. The point is- you do not want to be with someone and commitments scare you more than anything. You do not care if you’ll remain single throughout your life; the thought of having to share your life with someone is scary on its own.
10. The pact:
The famous pact with your best friend, when we turn 35 and we have found no one by then we will get together. This pact seems more realistic than the thought of being with someone. You know that your best friend is going to find someone so you have the safe option to take yourself out of the pact without having to break it.
11. Everything seems more close to you than a human being:
You actually find things to be closer to you than human beings. Apart from your friends and family, you have no concern with human beings. You get uncomfortable if anyone other than your friends and family actually tries to care about you. You like your freedom and independence more than your fellow human beings. *Continue reading to next page*
12. Your perspective is different from others:
You don’t believe in meeting that special one in your life with whom you will settle. You think that you can easily survive with your Playstation and food that your mother stocks in your fridge every week. You feel more real with your things than any person who might consider being with you.
13. It’s either the sweats or a partner:
You love your torn sweats and cannot even think of throwing them out. You even wear it on one of your dates (if there ever is one) and don’t mind telling your partner how old these sweats are. If you think they are not okay with it then they can find someone with perfect clothes but that person will never be you.
14. Social media is the real deal:
You have more friends on social media than in real life. You are more comfortable with your friends over the internet than actually having them over for a sleep over. And if you meet them in real life, you use their name tags from social media as if they are not real people. This is because you like them at that much space and having an actual human being for longer than an hour beside you is hard to bear.
15. The delivery guy will never know you are single:
You have the tactics and charm to persuade the delivery guy that the order for 3 is actually for 3 persons. He will never know that you live alone in that apartment and you actually eat all that food by yourself. You love this tactic of yours and never want to discard it.
16. Don’t even mention Valentine’s Day:
That is a no-go area! How can people be so romantic! You puke every time you hear the word ‘Valentine’s’. There is nothing grosser than seeing the whole world covered in red flowers and balloons. The day, in itself, is a waste of time and you have no idea why people spend so much time choosing gifts for their partners or even expressing their love so openly in front of everyone.
If you think you have all these traits then you are destined to be forever alone. Nothing can melt your heart and persuade you to give up the life of a loner and actually meet someone to spend your life with. Even the thought of being with someone is scary.
