We regret to inform you that you have successfully entered the glum realm of permanent singlehood.
Don't misunderstand us; we're not trying to minimize the benefits of having time to yourself, working at your own pace, or even just lounging about in your jammies all day.
Imagine, though, that your life was like a stripboard that never changed: orderly, static, and perhaps a little too predictable.
This is a somewhat boring description. You may find certain drawbacks to lifelong singlehood as you venture further into the unknown.
Brace yourself, for the tone is about to shift to something more conversational and compelling.
Having the option to forego showering on days when you don't feel like it, finishing a TV series you've started, etc.
However, here's the catch! At times, the complete absence of sound might be uncomfortable.
The reverberation of isolation can be a difficult guest to get rid of.
