"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 is no bigger mystery than what happens to us after we die.

But even those who don't practice an organized religion tend to believe that there is a Heaven, a happy joyful place where our souls will remain for eternity.

No two people share the same idea of what heaven would be like, but everyone who believes in it probably has an idea of the first thing they'd do after entering the pearly gates.

Redditor WeDidItGuyz was curious to hear what would be top on everyone's list upon entering the afterlife, leading them to ask:

"If heaven exists, what’s the first thing you’d do?"

"Fun facts" generally refers to a tidbit of information about a specific topic which the general public might not have otherwise known about.

But the first word in that term can be misleading.

Indeed, some "fun facts" reveal information that isn't remotely "fun" in the slightes.

Redditor Alternative_kachocho was curious to hear some "fun facts" which were anything but fun, leading them to ask:

What's a 'fun fact' that isn’t fun at all?"
