real life

Sign up to Mamamia's The Lonely Girls Guide newsletter here.

Every month, Mamamia's resident lonely girl Emily Vernem gives you a peek into the real life world of a single 20-something-year-old.

From terrible dating stories and opinions to simply trying to make sense of this world, The Lonely Girls Guide is that friend who checks up on you every now and then - to either make you feel better about yourself OR tell you that you've been doing something horribly wrong and it's time to change.

There's no in-between.
