New Survey Ask People Why They Think They Are Single!
Let’s face it, being single sucks. But did you ever stop and wonder why you’re still single when everyone around you is coupled up or married? Well, a new poll asked people just that and some of the answers are a bit surprising.
When it comes to personality traits, not being outgoing enough is the top reason why both men and women think they are single (men 44.6%, women 43.7%), followed by low self-esteem (men 33.3%, women 31%). But when it comes to physical traits, men are more likely to say it’s because their abs aren’t toned enough (33.9%), while women are more likely to say it’s because they are too fat (36.6%).
But it turns out, a lot of people are currently single simply because they want to be. In fact, 47.5% of people say they are alone because they decided to be single, while 31.8% say it’s because they haven’t met the right person, and another 17.1% say it’s because they are currently not looking for a relationship. What’s more, 65.2% blame themselves for being single, while 26% blame the people they’ve dated, and 12.9% blame their family.
The survey also asked people about lying on dates, and it turns out that 66.7% of men have lied, while only 57% of women have. As for what they lie about, number of sexual partners tops the list for both men and women (men 44.6%, women 44.4%). But for men the second biggest thing they lie about is income (37.5%), but for women it’s their weight (33.3%).
