Modern Family star, Ariel Winter, is officially a single celebrity. According to UsMagazine.com Winter posted a .gif of Kim Kardashian saying, “I’m like dropping hints that I’m single.” She captioned the post, “When you’re surprised people just haven’t gotten it yet… .” Before this post on Saturday, it had been unclear if this celebrity relationship had come to an end. Winter posted a vacation picture in which she was writing her name and then-boyfriend Laurent Claude Gaudette’s name in the sand in April. Since then, Winter posted the Kardashian .gif, and the celebrity couple has unfollowed each other on social media. We can take the hint.

In celebrity news, Ariel Winter is a single lady! What are some ways to announce you’re single to your network without being obvious about it?

Cupid’s Advice:

Being single again can be as exciting as getting into a new relationship, and you’ll want people to know. There are plenty of ways to announce that you’re single and ready to mingle without coming off as desperate or obnoxious:

1. Relationship status: This is probably the most 2016 way to announce that you’re single again. Log on to your Facebook account, and change your relationship status to single, or go onto your Instagram and take your boyfriend’s initials out of your bio. These changes are extremely subtle, but people do take notice.

2. #Single: Take a cute selfie, or post a picture of you doing something fun with friends. Add a few hashtags after your caption, and throw #single in there. Again, subtle, but noticeable.

3. Word of mouth: If you’re not into announcing your new relationship status on social media, tell your close friends first and let the word spread naturally. Your friends will meet up with old friends and when people ask if you and your boyfriend are still together word of your single status will slowly get around.
