So you’ve been on your own for a few years now and you love every second of it. Sometimes you go on dates, sometimes you hang out with Netflix and your couch — and you don’t stress about it either way. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with loving the single lifestyle, but there is such a thing as taking it too far. If you can relate to this, you’ve officially got a single women complex:

  1. You think single women are smarter. It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing that single women get more done in a day, put more effort into their careers and don’t have any stupid distractions. But just because someone’s a girlfriend doesn’t mean they hate working or don’t have any dreams or goals, so it’s probably time for a change of heart.
  2. You look down on relationship women. You think you’re better than women in long-term relationships. You can’t help it, but this is just the way that your brain works now. You’ve gotten so used to being single that you can’t imagine why anyone would want it any other way.
  3. You think most women are desperate for wanting boyfriends. You’ve been so independent for so long — you fix anything that goes wrong in your life, from friendship fights to your shower that won’t stop running — that you judge anyone who wants love. You think they need a guy instead of realizing that sometimes love really does change your world for the better.
  4. You’ve given up on love. It’s one thing to take a dating hiatus, but it’s entirely another to never go on any dates again for the rest of your life. If you’ve decided that love isn’t in the cards for you, you’ve taken your single life way too far and you need to re-evaluate. Not trying is the only way to guarantee that you’ll never find love.
  5. You won’t support your BFFs. Just because you want to be single doesn’t mean your best friends want that, too. If you never listen to their first date tales or give them texting advice, you’re being a crappy friend, period. And basically a crappy human being in general.
  6. You’ve got a bitter aura surrounding you. Your friends, family and coworkers can totally tell that you’re bitter 24/7 because they can feel it radiating off you. If you never lighten up because you’re so far up your single girl high horse, that’s not the best look.
  7. You’re in a dull routine. If your life is more of the same day after day, it’s definitely time for a change. Just because you’re not part of a couple doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to a life of work, work, TV, more work and occasionally seeing your girlfriends. Break your single woman complex today and have an adventure. It just might lead you to love — and if not, at least you’ll be happier. And that’s kind of the point.
