[rebelmouse-image 18349223 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Alright, perpetually single people. How single are you? Are you single enough to date yourself? How about eating microwaved food over a sink? Do you drink boxed wine with your cats? You're in good company. Stay strong, at least we have each other.

Krikran asked, What's the most single thing you've ever done?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

Going to IHOP (IHOB?) alone is pretty single, and pretty much everyone is going to notice. Stay strong.

Went to a crowded IHOP for breakfast alone and was asked if I minded sharing a table with another single guest. I was hungry, so whatever. She was 20 years my senior and we chatted till food arrived. No more words as we both shoveled the food into our mouths and escaped the situation ASAP.

You know you're single af when your gynecologist appointment counts as a date.

[rebelmouse-image 18355231 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Accidentally scheduled my annual gynecologist visit for valentines day because I forgot the date 2/14 had any significance.

When no one is around to hear you toot.

Heated up plain black beans in a pot, dumped siracha on them, and ate them with the big wooden cooking spoon.

This is how you single PROFESSIONALLY.

Flew to Vegas for my birthday alone. Stayed in a cheap hotel and partied on The Strip spending money on Blackjack, ate at some restaurants, and buffets. Went to some of the funniest clubs out there, and met some fun people. Partied with them at my room. Then the next day I flew back home. One of the best Birthday weekends.

My inner cat lady has nothing on fish man.

[rebelmouse-image 18355234 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Told my beta fish how my day was for a couple months straight until he died. No roommates and no girlfriend led to a lot of lonely nights.. also cried all night when he died.

Way to attack people for a typical Saturday night.

[rebelmouse-image 18355235 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Went out and bought about 20 dollars worth of Chinese food, and ate most of it standing in the kitchen.

It's just a big spoon and NO ONE is judging for having fewer dishes to clean.

[rebelmouse-image 18355236 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Saw my mate eat dinner with a ladle once. Bachelor.

Taco beds, although lonely, are really cozy. Or so we convince ourselves.

[rebelmouse-image 18349321 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My bed has warped into a taco from sleeping in the center for so long.

Edit: glad there are other taco beds out there! I actually like it, it's like getting a soft hug every night...

Single and horny, party of one.

[rebelmouse-image 18355237 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Went to see "Magic Mike" by myself with a 6 pack of beer hidden in my purse.

If I had it may way, I wouldn't be alone, eating in the car.

[rebelmouse-image 18355238 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I once teared up because as I was leaving the BK drive thru to go eat at home alone and I saw through the window this 50-year-old couple in a booth smiling at each other and talking. I'm a 22-year-old man.

Who do they think are going to use these?

[rebelmouse-image 18355239 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Used a half off coupon for a lap dance. They were not happy. Then don't make the coupon.

Sounds kinda kinky tbh...

[rebelmouse-image 18355240 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Live with my two best friends who are married, were pretty much a tricycle.

This is sorta like being married, just without the tax cuts.

[rebelmouse-image 18355241 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I realized my dog ate better than I did so I started cooking meals for two, we had boiled chicken, rice and veggies almost every night for a few months. Life was so simple back then.

Pet the cat, slap the bag. Repeat.

[rebelmouse-image 18355242 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Adopted 2 cats and made a box of wine a part of my grocery list...

Nothing wrong with dating yourself, unless you're cheap, then it's rough.

[rebelmouse-image 18355243 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Went to a movie alone, then went out to a restaurant alone afterward. It was surprisingly nice though

TV remotes, bags of chips, same thing really.

[rebelmouse-image 18355245 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My TV remotes had a space on the other side of the bed for waaaay too long.

First they attacked my Saturday nights, now my Fridays are under assault. Rude.

[rebelmouse-image 18355246 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Ordered a couple large pizzas, both for me, got a couple bags of chips and some soda. Ate all of it in bed over the course of 12 hours while watching Netflix. If I had been with someone else you could call it relationship goals but nope.

You're on a roll - no sense in breaking with tradition, ey comrade?

[rebelmouse-image 18355247 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

This one time I was single and then did that for my entire life so far.

Dancing alone means no one is sweating on you, so that's fine, right?

[rebelmouse-image 18355248 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I was dancing in a nightclub, and Jason Derulo's "Riding Solo" came on. I started crying because I, too, was "riding solo."

Alcohol may have been involved.

And this, of course, is peak single.

Eat microwaved food over a sink.

People Divulge The Craziest Baby Names They've Ever Heard
Wes Hicks/Reddit

When it comes to naming children, there are all kinds of different approaches.

Some parents like to honor the legacy of a late relative, while there are those who prefer naming their baby after a revered fictional character–"Luke" (Skywalker) being one of them.

But let's be honest. Baby naming can get way out of hand, and it's the child who becomes a victim by having to live with a name they might get teased for...like "Blanket."

With so many streaming platforms and too many recommendations to watch your friends' favorite shows, how do you prioritize what shows to watch?

Those who can afford to sit in front of the TV all day–because that is the commitment it takes to start making a dent in your viewing playlist–must choose wisely in determining which shows to start binging.

If a show fails to grab your attention from the get go, you might be prone to ditch it and go on to the next one on the list.

The risk of course is you might be missing out on something that is worth sitting through the slow-burn, exposition-y episodes of a show that is trying to establish itself at the beginning but becomes wildly rewarding towards the end.

But who has time for all that?

Apparently, there were many TV show viewers whose patience ran thin.
