Ah, cuffing season - that time of the year when cool weather sends us searching for cable-knit sweaters, discount beach vacations and warm, human connection. Unfortunately (or fortunately) for some of us, recent break-ups, dwindling love interests and lost friendships threaten to send us into a slump of loneliness while our friends are happy with their new companions.
But fear not, friends. If life has taught us anything, it's that you have to love your damn self. At the end of the day, this game of life starts and ends with you - so it's time to give yourself some of that old fashioned TLC. What better way to start than with a playlist to make you forget your blues and enjoy your new-found independence?
Whether they wronged you or you decided to venture out on your own - these songs are the anthems to single swag. So put the ice-cream down (just for a sec!), stop scrolling through couples photos on Instagram - and hit play.
Bad – Lennon Stella
For that lover who seemed too good to be true..
Switch – 6lack
They didn't understand you, and they didn't listen to where you were coming from. Here's the anthem you need for that long drive to clear your mind.
Main Girl – Charlotte Cardin
For all you babes who took second place, when you should have been first.
Barbie Dreams – Nicki Minaj
Nothing helps you get over them like listening to Nicki call out every dude in the game.

Don’t send the text, listen to a little late-night melancholy instead…
Needed me – Rihanna
For those times when you just need to feel yourself.
Don’t Hurt Yourself – Beyonce Ft. Jack White
You caught them cheating and now you’re *hair flip* onto better things.
Circles – Langston Francis
They can’t make up their mind, and you wasted your time.
Stole Your Car – Charlotte Lawrence
A broken heart exempts you from legal liability, right...? Right?!
Self Control - Frank Ocean
Sit back, relax, and reflect on the one that got away.

It's all going to be ok. We promise.
