The only thing all single girls have in common is the fact that we’re unattached. Otherwise, we’re all completely different. Are you happy with your single status or are you desperate for a fairy tale ending? In other words, which type of single girl are you?

  1. The forever alone girl. Are you just too comfortable with yourself? You might love the single life (or not), but if you’re not open to sharing your life (and your stuff), then all you’ll ever be is alone. Is that really what you want? Living it up while you’re single is one thing, but if you find too much comfort in yourself, you’ll never need (or even want) a man in your life.
  2. The girl that’s still hung up on the one that got away. You almost had a great love, but the timing was off — and while you’ve moved on, a little piece of your heart will always be in the past. You don’t know if he ever thinks about you, but you know you’ll always be thinking of him. He may not have broken your heart, but he’ll definitely always have a piece of it.
  3. The girl who can’t move on. You just cannot let go of your ex. Despite the fact that he hurt you, you still love him and can’t seem to get over the relationship. You’ll never find love until you stop holding on to ancient history. You broke up for a reason, and the best thing you can do for yourself is to put the past in the past.
  4. Miss Independent. You have your own career, friends and family and an overall amazing life. You don’t need a man to give you purpose, because in your life, you’re the priority. Sure, you’d like a boyfriend in theory, but not if it forces you to change anything about your life. You’re not willing to do that.
  5. The “desperately seeking anyone” girl. The fact that you’re so desperate for love could just be the thing keeping you from finding it. You don’t want someone, you want anyone and that’s your problem. You need to aim higher and seriously take a look at your standards, because you don’t just need another warm body. You deserve love, so stop settling for anything less.
  6. The “too busy for love” girl. You don’t have time for a man, because you’re too busy doing you. Sorting through all the fish in the sea, finding the man of your dreams, falling in love, planning a wedding and spending the rest of your lives together takes a hell of a lot of work — and who really has time for that? Not you. You already have a life, and you don’t have time to work anyone else into it.
  7. The bit too bitter girl. Your love life has not been fair, so you’re holding all of mankind accountable. If one guy did you wrong, they’ve all done you wrong, because men are all the same. Pigs and dogs, liars and cheaters… you have enough experience to know that men are good for one thing and one thing only—bringing you nothing but painful heartache.
  8. The stage 5 clinger. The fact that you want a relationship is an understatement. You see love around every corner and you’re attached from the first “hello.” You have no idea what breathing room is, because in your love life, the less space, the better. You don’t know what it’s like to just like someone, because your heart only knows how to love. And taking things slow? Please. Your love life only works in overdrive.
  9. The high maintenance princess. It’s not just the fact that you’re high maintenance — it’s your ridiculous standards. No man is ever good enough for you. You’ve weeded out every fish in the sea until the ocean is practically empty. The only way you’ll ever catch a man, is to realize that perfection is overrated.
