Hubpages writer StricktlyDating is an Australian writer creating pages of original funny quotes and status updates.

Why exactly is someone like you still single?

Why are you single? What's your excuse? Here's over 50 funny, sad and possibly truthful excuses and explanations as to why you are flying solo.

Why am I single?

  1. You're single because you're not in a relationship with someone who agrees that they're in a relationship with you (And you never have been).
  2. You're single because you've just split up with someone. Yesterday.
  3. You're single because you're not over your ex from 3 years ago... You worry your heart might be broken for life.
  4. You're single because the one you want is already taken. And you're not even next in line.
  5. You're single because you're in love with a celebrity who doesn't even know you exist, despite you retweeting their every status on a daily basis for the past 12 months.
  6. You're single because you're really good at staying single.
  7. You're single because you are taking some time to "find yourself". And you are enjoying what you are finding immensely.
  8. You're single because you're focusing on your career (As a pole dancer) for now.
  9. You're single because no one has asked you out EVER! And you know that there's a high possibility no one ever will.
  10. You're single because you're a weekend alcoholic.
  11. You're single because the one you want to be with doesn't want to be with you. Ever!
  12. You're single because you were just too hot for your last boyfriend/girlfriend.
  13. You're single because you want to be free. At least on the weekends.
  14. You're single because that's just the way you roll.
  15. You're single because your boyfriend/girlfriend went away and never came back.
  16. You're single because you never go anywhere to meet any one. And you wouldn't have anything to wear if you did.
  17. You're single because all the good one's are taken. By your friends.
  18. You're single because you let a good one get away. Probably more than one actually!
  19. You're single because you're waiting to meet someone really special. Or someone who will at least speak to you occasionally.
  20. You're single because you love to mingle. You were pretty much born to flirt!
  21. You're single because you're hoping your ex will want you back some day. Like even when you're both 80 years old.
  22. You're single because your ex ran off with someone else when you weren't looking.
  23. You're single because you don't want a relationship until you're older. Like 50 years old.
  24. You're single because you kissed on the first date. And it was awkward.
  25. You're single because you're taking a break from relationships and they are also taking a nice long break from you.
  26. You're single because it's your bad choice.
  27. You're single because you are not very good at relationships. Like even with your cat.
  28. You're single because you're last relationship has turned you off all relationships, possibly for life.
  29. You're single because you didn't take your last relationship seriously.
  30. You're single because you push people away with your insecurities.
  31. You're single because you've cheated on everyone you've been in a relationship with. You just can't help it.
  32. You're single because you're too picky.
  33. You're single because you don't know how to let people in.
  34. You're single because you're ugly. And you have a really old fashioned hair style.
  35. You're single because you're a liar. Your pants are on fire!
  36. You're single because it's lots of fun.
  37. You're single because you can't buy love.
  38. You're single because you don't treat people as good as they would treat you if you treated them well.
  39. You're single because you don't take someone on proper dates.
  40. You're single because you're far too awesome for a relationship.
  41. You're single because the only person who's ever asked you out was as old as your grandma.
  42. You're single because you are an emotional ice berg. Like in the middle of a big frozen lake. In the South Pole.
  43. You're single because it doesn't count when you're dating yourself.
  44. You're single because you keep choosing your mums lamb roast over a date.
  45. You're single because you're extremely out of fashion. Like your still wearing Crocs. And striped knitted vests. And wear hair gel.
  46. You're single because you're concentrating on world peace.
  47. You're single because you sleep with 4 smelly dogs in your bed and a cat on your head.
  48. You're single because you fell in love with your boat.
  49. You're single because you're metro and this confuses both genders.
  50. You're single because you dropped a mirror 7 years ago and you're still having bad luck.

So what if you're single right now! Since you are alive there is a chance (More in your favour than not) that some one will put an end to your single status one day!

      With 23 years of marriage (to the same woman) and still counting, I found some of the reasons funny and some concerning. But #26 is the real reason someone is single. When you are ready that special someone will appear.

      You're welcome Stricktlydating, and I appreciate the one-liners and your reason for listing the hub in that manner...it also made it easy to digest and pick my favorites at a glance.

      Not a fan of one-liners Bob? They're one liners so they can be shared on Facebook & Twitter status ;)

      I'd have to say at least five of these are suitable to why I'm single....and loving it!
