"Single people of reddit, why are you single?" –– That was the question Redditor JokersRedAce asked the online community and let's face it: It's a rather loaded one.

The truth is... There's a host of different answers here, all of which are valid.


"Because I'm..."

Because I'm in a constant internal battle between the part of me that wants to be more outgoing, and the part of me (that's rather potent) that wishes to keep things as they are, because it's comfortable and predictable.

"I personally..."

Giphy

I personally am not in a rush to link up with another person. I want the freedom to make drastic life choices without negatively affecting another person who I feel deeply for.

That's probably just a lie I tell myself though cause yeah I'm shy, introverted, and fear rejection.

"I like..."

I like being alone. Socializing is more of a chore for me.

"I'm mainly insecure..."

I'm mainly insecure about my look as I have no idea if girls find me attractive or not. I also am not confident to ask people out.

"I recently..."

I recently celebrated 1 year clean and sober after a ten year battle with substance abuse. I honestly never thought I'd reach this point.

I've been rediscovering myself over the past year and I've come out of a string of toxic relationships and I'm just not ready yet. I will be though. One day.

"I don't trust..."

I don't trust people enough. Don't get me wrong I don't have antisocial personality disorder, but I've been screwed over by the people I trusted too many times to overcome the fear of doing it again.

"I can barely..."

Giphy

Crippling anxiety, I can barely send first message to someone I consider my closest friend, let alone to a match on tinder

"Bad..."

Bad at dating apps. Too anxious to meet up with strangers and too awkward to keep up a conversation with only minor info to go off of.

"Haven't found..."

Haven't found the right person. Some people give me a hard time about being single or not going to dances in high school as I never had a date. But hey, I'd rather be single and happy than taken and miserable!

NitroWheels

"I'm recently..."

I'm recently out of an abusive relationship, and I'm trying to reconnect with myself and not unintentionally use anyone else as a crutch.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
