Ladies, we have all been guilty of this a time or two. Your friend is in a happy, healthy relationship and all we can do is hate them for it. From insults to teasing, and in those desperate cases, “John-Tuckering" their boyfriends away from them. Yup, being the bitter single friend can make you do some crazy sh*t. We will tell you that we are doing it for your own good and that you deserve better, but misery loves company, or in this case, single. Now, before you stock your fridge with Lean Cuisines and cry to your cats wearing your chocolate stained Snuggie, let me enlighten you.
First off, being a b*tch to people in relationships will not make anyone want to date you. I know this seems pretty obvious but I know plenty of people that don't understand this. Have you ever heard the story of the bitter single girl that complained herself into finding love? No, you have not. Case closed.
Second, complaining will only make you feel worse. I know that some people view this as venting or a form of therapy, but it is really anything but therapeutic. Complaining only brings up negative feelings and will leave you drained. Also, no one wants to hear about how you are going to die alone, even your best friend.
Lastly, being single is amazing. You are free and life is good. You can do what you want when you want it and no one will be there to stop you. When you are single the world is your oyster, and you get to meet a ton of new people and have a bunch of new adventures. You will have enough free time to hang out with your friends and you will finally be able to take that girl's trip you have been talking about forever. When you are single you can work on bettering yourself and isn't that what really matters?
So ladies, don't be the bitter single friend. As soon as you stop looking for love is when you are most likely to find it. Enjoy being single while you can because honey, God knows that won't be for too long.
