The girls of Single Admissions, Kat, Peta and Alisha, are twenty-somethings missing one thing: a boyfriend. If love is a battlefield then single life is the apocalypse. To survive they must answer life’s big questions: How many Facebook status updates are too many? Is it possible to drink your body weight in alcohol? And is it really that bad to be single? For anyone who's ever sent text messages under the influence, danced on their lonesome or been asked the question — repeatedly — "When are you getting married?" "No Seriously, when?"

The Single Admissions story is of three young women navigating the perils of relationships. Through a mix of dark satirical humour and blatant pop culture currency, Single Admissions is a twenty something’s best friend.

EXTRACT: When I was little, I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. A princess. Stay with me. Other kids wanted to be doctors, astronauts, mothers but no. I wanted to be a princess. I get to wear a shiny dress, and have jewels and I get a prince charming. All I have to do is fall asleep, or get poisoned by an evil witch, and then my prince would appear and give me the kiss of life.

EXTRACT: The worst part of one night stands is getting home. How do you do it? You could pay for a taxi, but it won't come and if it does it will cost you an arm and a leg. You could catch public transport if you are near it. But you never are, you're always in the fucking middle of nowhere. They should run a bus. A slut bus. A bus that travels around suburbia picking up the whores of the night so we can all go home together and compare notes.

"This is a tale told by women, for women, but I really think everyone who has ever loved, or loved and lost, or loved briefly and then tried to figure out how you're going to get home afterwards, is going to find something to laugh at, or something to cry over here."
