16 Phrases You Should Never, Ever Say to a Girl Who's Single AF

For some reason, when you’re single everyone starts to see you as a charity case. And the condescending phrases never seem to end. Here’s just a starter’s list on phrases that girls who are single AF are tired of hearing.

  1. You’re so pretty, why are you single? So there must be something wrong with me, right? 
  2. When was your last date? Chances are, it was either a hundred years ago or it was last week. Either way, it didn’t work out. 
  3. There are plenty of great guys out there! Really? Hand me a miscroscope. Or a telescope.
  4. You just need to lower your standards a little. Excuse me?
  5. Any guy would be lucky to have you. Please, tell me something I don’t know.
  6. Don’t worry, men are idiots. And so are you.
  7. It’ll happen when you least expect it. Trust me, there is no “expecting” going on here.
  8. Who needs a BF when you’ve got Netflix and wine? Not sure, but I do know someone who needs their mouth taped shut.
  9. Just put yourself out there more. So you want me to dry-hump the next guy I see on the street, is that it?
  10. I dunno what I would do if I was single as long as you. Well, here I am.
  11. Ugh, I’d go crazy if I had to go back into the dating game. Funny, because I’m just about to lose my sanity listening to you.
  12. You are so lucky you’re single. Define “lucky” for me.
  13. Just take this time to focus on yourself. But all I do is focus on myself. I’m practically sick of myself.
  14. You should be thankful you can kiss anyone you want. Right, except there’s no one in particular I want to kiss because everyone’s gross.
  15. He could be right in front of you and you don’t even know it. No, the only person right in front of me is you and I’m trying my hardest to stay polite.
  16. Plenty more fish in the sea. Did someone say food? I’m gonna go get some food.
