We humans have some strange obsessions. We’re always running after what we don’t have. When we’re in the city we want to go to the beach and when on the beach we miss the hustle and bustle of the city; when it’s cold outside we want to warm up and when it’s hot outside we want a cold drink. Similarly, when we are in a relationship we wish we were single, and when we are single we long for a partner. However, there are a lot of differences between the lives of people who are single and those who have settled down. Let’s have a look at some of the funniest ones!
10. Phone Bills are Much Higher
When you are single, all your calls are to the point. But when you are in a relationship, things change completely. You are on the phone for hours at a time, talking about God knows what and you still end up feeling like you didn’t talk enough.
9. Hanging Out with Your Friends Takes a Backseat
When you are single, all your free time is spent with your gang. You hang out, laugh and live together. But when you get into a relationship, all that changes. Most of your free time is spent with your “bae.” As for your friends? Well, they are the ones who keep complaining that you have changed!
8. You Actually Start Caring About The Way You Look!
When you are single and have no one to impress, you don’t care about how you dress or look. The same pair of denims can be worn for weeks at a stretch! But when you are in a committed relationship, you always have to pay extra attention to your looks.
7. You are a Lot More Cautious Since There is Someone Waiting For You at Home
Before you have that special someone in your life, you are all about the thrills and spills of life in the fast lane. You drive faster, you eat erratically and you indulge in everything else that gives you an adrenaline rush. But when you are in a relationship, you have to think twice about doing something irrational. The only way you’ll be getting an adrenaline rush is from seeing your loved one!
6. Your Choice of Seats in the Theater Changes
When you are single, you want to look for the best seat in the house. You want to ensure that you are in that acoustic sweet spot – and definitely near the center so you can catch the best angle. But when you are with someone special, you want to find something further back, just in case things get frisky!
5. Your Choice of Social Lubricant Changes a Lot Too!
When you are single, you gulp down beer after beer, or get crazy chugging shots. But when you are out with your loved one, you are more likely to have a mature and romantic glass of wine.
4. You Have Someone to Spend Cozy Evenings In With
When you are single, you are always looking to make plans to hang out with your pals somewhere. But when you have that special someone, you can happily spend evenings at home, snuggled up in bed, just talking and holding hands.
3. Your Texting Language Changes!
When you’re single, you stick to the point when you reply to messages. In a relationship, however, you’re always on top of your phone and texting sonnets to your beloved.
2. Your Choice of Eating Joints Changes!
When out with your friends, you choose to go to a local place that does the food you like, never mind the ambiance. But when you are on a date with your special someone, you want to make sure you go someplace fancy!
1. You are Always Out of Money
When you are in a relationship, you will realize that you are always low on funds. That’s despite the fact that it seems like you used to do much more for less money when you are were single!
