  6. You will get married, but it won’t be for a while — like a few years, at least. But that’s totally fine! There’s no need to freak out, or to listen to all those people who are bugging you about when you are going to get hitched. The world is yours, and you have more than enough time to find The One. Enjoy single life while you can, because you’ll be hitched before you know it.

  7. You may get married, but it looks like you’ll be living the single life for a while! And that’s totally cool, because you are more than making the most of it, right? Yeah, you may need to lay off the Netflix and Nutella, but you are ENJOYING singledom. Feel free to put yourself out there and play the field, but never feel like you have to settle.

  8. You may never get married, and that’s fine! You are well-suited to the single life. You’re motivated, independent, and self-invested. When you are as awesome as you are, who needs a spouse? You just don’t have the time, right? Or at least that’s what you’re telling yourself. Never settle, but also don’t forget The One may be out there.

  9. You are SO fucking single, and at times, it seems all hope is lost. But The One is out there – PROMISE. You’re a total catch, and you deserve happiness. Just for some reason, it seems like everyone else is finding their special someone, right? But it will just make it that much better when you land your catch.
