Films to Make You Want to Be Single (part 1)

Are you wondering which films indeed will make you happy to be single? Below are some of the best picks.

1. 500 Days of Summer (in 2009)

Initially, it may make you feel for Tom as well as his heartbreak. When you come back to it later, I will realize you have been Summer too. You indeed cannot force yourself to get with someone that fails to make you happy, however high a pedestal he puts you on. Also, it will make you realize the difference between infatuation and love.

2. How to Be Single (in 2016)

The film will show you how beautiful life can be if you are experiencing a breakup and you think it is the end of your life. It will show you that becoming single is a blessing in disguise, instead.

3. Gone Girl (in 2014)

Regardless of how crazy Amy was, this person will show you how to take your life into your own hands and stop counting on others to make you happy.

4. Ghostbusters (in 2016)

The women are all badass and single. All of them are incredibly intelligent in their respective fields as well as proving they do not need a significant other to become successful.

5. Blue Valentine (in 2010)

Hands down. The film is a heartbreaking (yet realistic) portrayal of the relationship unraveling.

6. My Best Friend’s Wedding (in 1997)

The movie is funny and charming. However, it is tender and raw, as well in some parts. You may especially love that it places the struggle of Jules with herself center and front, rather than the drama with others.

7. Forgetting Sarah Marshall (in 2008)

It may be the only thing that will make you laugh when you are in a breakup black hole. You will empathize with the lead.
