Confessions From A Perpetually Single Girl

Hard truths from the friend in your group who is literally always single.

Confessions From A Perpetually Single Girl
Huffington Post

We all have that one friend that is the perpetually single friend. The one that is the constant third wheel, the one that gives all the relationship advice, etc. Well, that friend is me. Hi, my name is Claudia, and I am a perpetually single friend, nice to meet you! Here are some things you may not know your perpetually single friend feels:

1. What ever happened to alone time?

Yes, I do love you and I love your significant other (SO) , but I don’t love hanging out with both of you together all the time. You are my friend and I would love to hang out with just you, nothing against your SO, I just don’t want to be the designated third wheel, as well. Sometimes, one-on-one time is all I need.

2. Why am I the relationship advice guru?

Yes, I know you think it’s ironic that the friend who is literally always single is the first one to dish out the relationship advice, but do you know why? It’s because I feel that sometimes maybe what you need is an outside opinion, a view from someone who isn’t in your situation and, therefore, won’t have any bias. Feel free not to take my advice, it could always turn out to be horrible, but I’m just looking out for you in the best way I can.

3. Please, stop setting me up with people.

Please don’t try to set me up with someone unless I specifically ask because otherwise, that’s gonna be an awkward date. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful that you care so much, I just want to find my own person on my own terms and at my own pace.

4. No, I don’t need a constant reminder.

I can take a joke now and then, hell I even joke about always being single. But, I don’t need it to be the butt of every single joke or statement about me. I’m other things too besides single! And, if your friend isn’t single by personal choice, like me, I don't think they love being constantly reminded of it.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
