“All the single ladies, put your hands up!”
Lately, I’ve been complaining to my friend that I need a boyfriend. It is totally out of the blue for me since I am not a “relationship type” of girl. However, being single definitely has its highs and lows. Sometimes I miss cuddling or having someone that I can share my days with. But there's no doubt that flying solo is sometimes way better than dating. This may be one of the only times in your life when you can do whatever you want when you want it.
I found three videos on Youtube that every single girl can relate to:
1. One Night Stand
Video by: Comedy Central
Amy Schumer’s skit for Comedy Central is not just about the humor of the vagina, there is a deep relatable behind it. As much as I don’t want to admit that an "ONS" still bothers me, I still act like a high school student falling in love when I hook up with a hot stud that meets all of my criteria. In this video, you will see the sad reality of the different expectation of an "ONS" from a guy’s and a girl’s point of view.

Personally, I date the way most people date in the city, juggling multiple partners without any real forward movement. But deep down, I still long for a successful monogamous, long-term relationship, even though it seems like a fairytale in this apocalyptic dating era. Sometimes you just can’t help feeling like "OMG, he is the one." This video shows signs that you are falling for someone.
3. Single and happy?

This video is a must watch! The New York Times wrote an article based on this issue in China. I am not sure about all of you, but as an Asian, I can completely relate to their story. All humor aside, there is still a bad stereotype out there in the world regarding being single, especially as a woman. In Asia, single girls in their 30s are often labeled the “leftover women.” I hope we can shatter this image one day, and finally can be proud to be successful, intelligent, single individuals.
If you can relate to these stories, share this post to the other single ladies!
