Stop Blaming London! 35 Reasons Why You’re Really Single In The City

You can blame it on the city: on the fact that it’s too big; too expensive; too unwelcoming; too full of socially stunted people who would rather put firelighters in their shoes than spark up a conversation on the Tube. But ultimately, there could be a few other factors in play. And something tells us London isn’t the only one to blame…


1. Because you don’t like sharing the duvet.

2. Because every time you go on dates you end up crying.

3. Because Vodka Revs is not a good place to meet new people.

4. Because 1 out of 5 people only change their sheets once a month.

5. Because Cumberbatch or no one.

6. Because you don’t like snuggling.

7. Because you don’t like the word ‘snuggling’.

8. Because if anyone called you ‘snuggles’ you’d punch them in the face.

9. Because you keep friend requesting people on Facebook before you’ve even met them.

10. Because you suffer from the Messiah complex.
