9 Things You Go Through Being 'The Single Friend'

Everyone at some point in time has been the single friend. What people don't tell you is, it's fun being single, until you're the only one that doesn't have a date Friday night.

1. Trying to make plans with your girls on a weekend is almost impossible

No, really, it's okay. I'll just sit here and rewatch Gossip Girl and drink my wine by myself for the millionth time in a row.

2. You're constantly getting set up with their friends...and they normally don't go well.

Either he's a total douche and you're miserable or he instantly wants you to fall in love with him so he has someone to keep him from third wheeling like you.

3. You pretty much get to sit in silence while they all discuss their relationships. 

You basically just sit there and agree with what's being said, but you don't really have a relatable piece of advice to give.

4. You always hear "you're so lucky you're single."

Like yes, it's lovely sitting in my bed alone every. single. night. You really should be jealous.

5. You get to be the cute couple photographer when you go on group outings.

That cute Instagram picture my BFF posted with her boyfriend? Yeah, I probably took that.

6. You get to third wheel on their dates because they feel bad. 

But no, "you seriously won't be third wheeling".

7. You can't relate when your friends talk about engagement rings and which one they know they're getting.

Yeah, I need to find a boyfriend before I talk about having a fiance...

8. But, you already know which bridesmaid dress you'll be wearing at all of their weddings

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride...

9. Your ex sometimes starts to not sound so bad anymore...

...and then you snap out of it and realize you're still content being single.

Being the single friend has its perks. No, seriously, I swear it does, I'm 100% fine, honestly...

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
