Old Friend: Are you seeing anyone?
Me: No, I’m Single
Old Friend: *tilts head out of pity* Awww well you’ll be fine!
Ummm what? I’m sorry, I didn’t know that being single was a death sentence! Please save your looks of pity and encouraging words for the next girl! I hate that being single is seen as a bad thing. I’m alone, but I’m definitely not lonely! *twirls* Don’t let others make you feel like being single isn’t ok! You’re allowed to be single!
Excuse me!?! *chokes on disbelief* Is that a real thing? No seriously, is being too independent a real life thing?!? Stop saying that! *snaps in Z formation* Whether you’re a Type A Female or not you should be able to take care of yourself, and NO ONE should make you feel bad about that. I refuse to pretend to be a damsel in distress just so that I can attract a wannabe prince charming. I shouldn’t have to act like I’m less than to boost a man’s ego.
Oh my gosh! You are so right! Maybe my standards for my future life partner are a little too high. Maybe intellect, honesty, and loyalty are too much to ask for in one person. *rolls eyes* HECK NO! *snaps in Z formation* Since when did being picky become a bad thing? Why would I not be picky?!? Let’s be honest, we’ve all wished that we could mix a few guys together to make the perfect mate. We’re always like: “If I could mix his personality, with that guy’s looks, and that other guy’s humor…we would all be perfect together!” Lol now THAT is ridiculous. Romance is not like Chipotle, you don’t get to choose what makes a man like he’s a burrito! Lol However, if you don’t like the ingredients in that burrito, don’t accept it! Don’t ever feel bad for being “too picky”.
Girl, I know I’m fabulous! *twirls* But what does that have to do with me being single? Am I less awesome because I don’t have a man? #thatsawkward Your relationship status is not directly related to your level of greatness. Stop letting other make you feel inferior because you’re single.
So a few years ago, a friend of mine decided to set me up on a blind date. *rolls eyes* She wanted to hook me up with a “nice guy” after my bad break up; so maybe her heart was in the right place. *Kanye Shurgs* So I meet the guy for dinner, and at first I thought it was going well…..until it didn’t. Lol we somehow got on the subject of our ex’s (warning sign), and he began to moan and rant about his ex. This poor kid began to cry. And not just any kind of cry….he UGLY cried. You know, sniffling, nose-dripping, gasping for air…UGLY CRIED! I didn’t know what to do! And I’m awkward….like real-life super awkward. So I did what every awkward girl would do in this scenario…I laughed! Lol I didn’t mean to, it just sort of happen, and once I started I couldn’t control it. Well, I guess Mr. Heartbroken got a little offended, and he decided to leave the dinner table. But as he left he bumped the table, and my glass of red wine spilled all over my crème dress. Yep….that’s my dating life. So no, I don’t want you to set me up with a “nice guy”. Lol if it’s meant to be it will, if not you’ll be left with stains…literally!
Yea…I would enjoy it more if you would STOP bringing it up. I feel like people in a relationship noticed you singleness more than you do. And then they feel the need to constantly comment on it, and point out things that aren’t even there. A friend once asked me: “Do you not notice that no one is holding your hand? Does that make you feel lonely, aww Amira I don’t want you to be alone?” Like NO girl, but you saying that makes me feel like our friendship just ended! Lol like what? I don’t really have much advice for this lol JUST STOP!!!
