"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!

"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.

So I have this concept I call "Emotional Velociraptors" - they're the people that stay in your life testing your fences for weak spots after you've set a boundary.

I love movies. Who doesn't?

Film has been leaving an impression on our lives for over a century.

Some of the things we remember most are the images. The shots that seem otherworldly.

How does the director and the DP figure it all out? How do they see the colors?

I've seen some shots that have left me breathless.

It's all genius.

Redditor dilapidatedbunghole wanted to talk about the beauty of cinema, by asking:

"What is the most aesthetically pleasing movie you've ever seen?"

How high was God or whoever when they designed the human body? Clearly they needed a crash course in anatomy.

The body is amazing and resilient, but it can also be a hot mess.

Why are so many areas susceptible to pain? Like, one bad fall on a knee and you could be hobbled for life.

They should be more bulletproof. And the eyes, why so fragile when a wild eyelash gets caught in a blink?

So many questions. If the body was intended to last ten decades or so, it should be a bit more bionic.

Redditor MrBowls wanted to get into details about anatomy and it's issues, they asked:

"What’s the worst designed part of the human body?"
