Single Men Reveal Their Most Embarrassing Meals They've Ever Made For Themselves

[rebelmouse-image 18359930 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We have all had a quick and lazy meal, but these single guys take it to the next level.

Reddit user WeathermanDan asks:

Single men of reddit, what's the most "single guy" meal you have ever made?

Get ready for some extremely low-effort meal ideas!

The un-chopped salad

[rebelmouse-image 18359931 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bought a head of lettuce and ate it like an apple over the sink while occasionally dribbling salad dressing over it where I planned on biting.

Meal for 1-5

[rebelmouse-image 18359932 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Stouffers Family Meal. Family of me.

The easy clean up meal

[rebelmouse-image 18359933 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I've thrown the bottom of the bag tortilla chips in to the jar of salsa and ate it with a spoon.

Meals that make you get wild

[rebelmouse-image 18359934 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I had ice cream for dinner on friday because I'm not drinking this month and still wanted that crazy friday feeling of letting loose

One pot for life

[rebelmouse-image 18359935 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Former single man.

I pretty much lived on one pot dinners. Cook in it and eat from it.

Sometimes when I was feeling fancy I would use a plate but I would lay a tortilla on the plate before putting food on it, saved me washing the plate.

Whatever is left in the fridge will do

[rebelmouse-image 18359938 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

With nothing in the fridge I have resorted to eating the entirety of a parmesan cheese container. Popped the top off and went at it with a spoon like the shameless sack of man I am.

Everything is better fried, so fry everything

[rebelmouse-image 18359939 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When I moved into my own place my dad bought me a pretty fancy deep fryer. I would toss a couple of corn dogs, 3 or 4 chicken strips and a handful of onion rings in it and let them all deep fry for about 10 minutes. That was my dinner. Not as "oh, look at the silly man eating from a can" as some of the other answers here but to me nothing screams "single man" quite like an entire meal of frozen food deep fried.

The alternatively made meal

[rebelmouse-image 18359940 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches... made with an iron.

A meal with your wing man

[rebelmouse-image 18359941 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My brother and I once opened like eight cans of pasta of various varieties, dumped them all into a pot and stirred it all together. It was amazing.

Eating like an animal

[rebelmouse-image 18359942 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Pizza and I ate it over the sink like a rat.

Meal in a can, with accessories

[rebelmouse-image 18979982 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A can of chilli, cooked not by decanting it into a pan and warming it on the hob, or by pouring it into a bowl and microwaving it... but by taking the lid off the can and putting it directly onto one of the oven's rings.

Then eating it directly out of the red-hot can with a spoon, whilst wearing oven-gloves.

Getting the most out of that canned chili

[rebelmouse-image 18979983 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Canned Chili in between pieces of sliced bread. I called it a taco.

The lone ranger meal

[rebelmouse-image 18979984 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Arrives at restaurant:

Host: "How many?"

Me: "Just me, one please"

Host: "You'll have to wait 15 minutes"

Me: "Can't I just go sit at the bar like always?"

Host: "I'm going to have to see some ID"

Me: shows ID, gets a nod and walks to the bar to have some wings.

The false meals

[rebelmouse-image 18979985 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I ate a box of Oreos for breakfast on a Sunday once.

Last night I ate half a log cake.

Eating tuna out the can.

Peanut butter dipping buffet

[rebelmouse-image 18979987 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Not single anymore, but when I was I frequently made meals of granola bars dipped straight into the peanut butter jar.

Desperate and dry times

[rebelmouse-image 18979989 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One day all I had to eat in my apartment was this giant jar of crunchy peanut butter that had a label indicating it was a part of some sort of UN humanitarian program for African nations. I got it from my grandmother who received it as part of a help package for elderly pensioners. It was extremely dry and tasted like cardboard. Lived two days on it, until my pay day.

With time comes wisdom and flavor

[rebelmouse-image 18979990 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

You want the real answer? The real answer? The bowl of cereal that's been sitting on my kitchen counter for the past three days.

Simple solutions

[rebelmouse-image 18979991 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Cornflakes at 10:30 pm because I just got back home from a trip, the supermarkets were closed for the night, and that was the only food in the house. I used water.

A creative alternative

[rebelmouse-image 18979992 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I wanted pizza. I did not have pizza. I was extremely broke. I did, however, have wonder bread, ketchup, kraft slices and a couple of leftover hotdogs.

I called it 'hobo pizza'. You may think because its easy and cheap to make, and kinda resembles pizza (bread, tomato, cheese, processed meat) but actually I called it that because it was like eating a hobo's ruptured hemorrhoid on a piece of his cardboard bed.

The meal that never ends

[rebelmouse-image 18979993 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

2lbs of Shepard's pie. Store bought. Started eating it and just...didn't stop.

People Describe The Absolute Laziest Things They've Ever Done

Are we being lazy or is it self-care?

That is what you should ask yourself first, before you judge.

Life is an arduous journey and a constant energy suck.

It was inevitable we'd find shortcuts to get by.

It's all about survival.

Redditor Batman_In_Peacetime wanted to hear about the times we just didn't care enough to try harder. They asked:

"What is a lazy thing you began doing when you realised you can live with it?"

Be it on a blind date, at a party where you don't know anyone, or sitting next to someone on an airplane, starting a conversation with a total stranger is difficult.

As much as we'd all like to be friendly, far too often we find ourselves at a loss for words.

It doesn't help that we generally have no idea of what these people's various interests are, making it anyone's guess how they'll respond.

But some have this problem solved, finding a go-to topic which is always guaranteed to get a response, no matter who you're talking to.

Redditor Blugged_Bunny was curious to hear what people thought was the best way to begin a conversation with strangers, leading them to ask:

"What is your go-to 'small talk' topic with strangers?"

People Explain Which Things Are Stupidly Overpriced

Quality comes with price. That's a fact you can't escape. If you hire someone to fix your home, and want them to do the best job, you're going to have to pay above average prices. That's fine. Pay the people what they're worth for the great job they did. However, we live in a world where everyone is looking for their payout, even if what they've given you is less than ideal.

Don't overpay for any of these.

People Divulge The Opinion That Is The Smallest Hill They're Willing To Die On

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.
