So great…basically a list of why I should be happy I can be selfish and standoffish, and not want others in my space or to touch my things. Exactly why I LOVE being single!! It’s kind of like when you don’t have a date for a wedding, and everyone is like, “It’s ok, maybe there will be a hot guy there you can hook up with!” And then you get to the singles table filled with old aunts and cousins that are 13.
Ok, this actually is more “sad” in the sense of:
Creepy. As. FUCK
Well, basically this story is tale as old as time. Girl meets Girl. They become “BFF” – Best Friends Forever. Or until Girl meets Boy. And then you have the first few months, when Boy and Girl go from BF and GF to one entity, attached at the hip, only to appear in public in the form of “couples.” As in multiples. As in, they try it out with Girl #1, who, let’s be real, we can call her Lonely Girl, a few times, and it’s just plain AWK. As in, they stop asking her out, because Girl and Boy are now a they, and Lonely Girl is not. And the “Theys” only want to be with other “Theys”, not ( shiver) “Singles”.
So, slowly but surely, that once Forever in BFF gets tossed out the window. You maybe text occasionally. Still refer to each other as “Best Friends”, but when was the last time you really saw each other? And then it happens. Lonely Girl realizes that her once BFF, who basically promised to be there for her in singleness and in health, hasn’t answered a text, email, call, message via carrier pigeon in months. And who does this really suck for….Lonely Girl.
Hey There, Lonely Girl….
Because at least 1/2 of Siamese Couple has the other half still, and all those other couple friends. Lonely Girl is basically left in the dust to repeat the cycle again. The Cycle of the Single Gal. And she doesn’t even get to benefit from her BFF’s new Boyfriend’s hopefully decent taste in friends. Or even bad taste for a slutty hookup.
The Cycle of the Single Gal
I’m not kidding. This is real. It exists. It is not a joke. It is real….
And as I write this, I am watching Hoda and Kathie Lee tell me I need to change my attitude…thanks ladies!! I’m sure by next National Singles Week, I will be planning my wedding!!!
