*ANGUISH INTENSIFIES*

Look, being single is something EVERYONE has to go through at some point in their life. Whether you’re a tween, a fully functioning adult, or somewhere in between, dealing with situations in which your relationship status is brought into conversation is too real sometimes for words. So, we’ve decided to actually put it into words with nine situations that are way too much to deal with.

So without any further adieu, here are nine of the worst things to happen to you when you’re single AF… and we apologise if this list gets way to real for you. Also – don’t forget to let us know in the comments below if you can think of anymore situations when you wanted to do an Irish Exit out of the “Relationship talk” with your Grandma. There’s just one for ya. Should we rename this article to “10 Things…” now?!
