12 Truly Underrated Things About Being Single

It's a lot better than it sounds.

Are you the only person in your friend group without a boyfriend/girlfriend? Does it ever make you feel sad, lonely, or left out?

Well, have no fear! There are plenty of reasons to embrace the single life, as listed below.

1. You don’t have to worry about your friends & family disliking your ~nonexistent~ S.O.

This one is a big one.

2. You’re always down for a girls’ night.

What’s better than chips and guac with pals?

3. Going out is always fun.

Because you can socialize with whoever you want (including that cutie from Stats class)

4. You give the best relationship advice.

Despite not being taken-- your friends appreciate your perspective as an outsider.

5. Don’t want to share your food with someone else?

No problem!

6. You don’t have to send ‘good morning’/’goodnight’ texts.

Sounds easy enough, but what if you forget? Could lead to some unnecessary overthinking for the other person.

7. None of your hoodies will go missing.

And you'll never be accused of ‘stealing’ one [or 10] from your bf/gf).

8. You can watch your shows without any complaints.

After all, who else would actually sit through 6+ hours of nonstop Friends?

9. Same goes for music.

You can always sing your favorite songs at the top of your lungs (without having to worry about someone breaking up with you because of your glass-shattering vocals).

10. A life free of boy drama is pretty great.

Sure, it can be boring at times, but let's be real, that sh*t is stressful.

11. You don't ever have to worry about someone breaking up with you!

Or vice versa.

12. You love being single, because you know your “time” will come.

So enjoy your time to yourself while you have it.

Everyone Needs To Relax About Meghan Markle's Bra

Who knew a peek of lace would make everyone lose their minds?


If you haven't heard by now, Meghan Markle was spotted this past weekend, on her birthday, attending a wedding. She stepped out looking chic as always in a beautiful in a button-down dress and a lovely fascinator to match. However, early photos caught of her showed the top couple buttons on her dress undone, exposing an extremely small scrap of lace.

When I first saw the image of this, I thought it was styled that way intentionally and I loved the look. I found it slightly daring without baring much at all. Although, she was quickly spotted carrying on with her dressed fully buttoned. Then the media went nuts about her seemingly insignificant wardrobe malfunction.

I was taken aback that this was even news. People were shaming her left and right for "being too immodest" or "breaking royal protocol." While the new Duchess of Sussex is under a microscope, facing scrutiny from every angle imaginable, this tiny slip hardly seemed like anything. If this counts as a wardrobe malfunction, I have had my fair share of them. It seems as though many people have forgotten that becoming a royal did not change the fact that Meghan is still a human who has wardrobe malfunctions like the rest of us.

I was shocked that people found this shocking. There are plenty of (important) things worth having a frenzy over, in my opinion, this was just not one of them. It was as if people were expecting her to drop in shame at the matter. It seems ridiculous that someone could face such an adverse reaction to wearing a bra. Whether she went with a bra, a bright pink bra, or no bra at all, the fact of the matter is that we should have no concern about the undergarments of others.
