Being Single During "Cuffing Season," As Told By Michael Scott

Being Single During "Cuffing Season," As Told By Michael Scott

Seeing couples in public just makes you want to scream.

It's that time of the year again-- the infamous "cuffing season." The cold winter months have single people everywhere longing to be "cuffed" or "tied down" by a significant other. While I'm not necessarily longing, I will admit it can be a little lonely.

Michael Scott would agree.

1. You attempt to shoot your shot at someone and end up getting r-e-j-e-c-t-e-d.

We've all been there.

2. Seeing couples in public just makes you want to scream.

Come on, guys.

3. You try to talk to someone you find attractive and end up getting nervous and tongue-tied.

That's a little embarrassing.

4. Your friends in relationships go out on dates and you don't want to be a third wheel...

But it's still distressing.

5. You make an effort to suppress your emotions.

And go a little overboard.

6. Then you find yourself reminiscing and shoot your ex a text.


7. Eventually, you come to your senses and realize #6 was a mistake.

You're better than that.

8. Sometimes you just want to eat your feelings.

Bring out the Ben and Jerry's.

9. You get in your "feels."

We all do sometimes.

10. But you realize you're just being dramatic.

It's not that serious.

12. You don't need another person to validate your being.

It's overrated, anyway.

11. You've got great friends who are there to laugh and cry with you.

They can be the best company.

12. You know your self-worth.

Treat yo'self.

13. You're...

14. And you know there's no need to desperately search because...

Being single isn't the worst thing in the world! Love yourself, and the rest will follow.

There Is No Greater Feeling Than Looking Into Someone's Eyes And Seeing A Future

There is no greater feeling than love.

If you would've asked me a year ago how my life would be now, I wouldn't have an answer. But if you asked me right now where my life would be in a year, I'd say somewhere with you.

The definition of 'love' on Urban Dictionary is:

"an affection with no limits or conditions: completely loving someone. It's when you trust the other with your life and when you would do anything for each other. When you love someone you want nothing more than for them to be truly happy no matter what it takes because that's how much you care about them and because their needs come before your own. You hide nothing of yourself and can tell the other anything because you know they accept you just the way you are and vice versa."

It started at the end of my summer going into my freshman year of college. I was ready for this new chapter of life- college. I had no expectations except for cute boys, fun parties, and many memories with my new friends. I was like any other girl going to college; not looking for anything. Everyone always built into my head "why would you want a boyfriend your freshman year," "experience the college life single," "you'll meet plenty of boys at school," "just have fun..." but in the blink of an eye none of that mattered.

After being placed in group chats and facebook pages, there was always one boy who caught my eye, but little did I know we met before. Do you ever read that stuff on twitter where it is like "what if you have already met the love of your life and had no idea?" Yeah, it kind of felt like that. We were at the same prom, beach, senior week, and college parties, and I had no idea that some stranger was going to mean so much to me one day.

I went from having the mindset that boys are stupid to not being able to take this boy off my mind. I have only ever been "in love" one other time, but this love does not compare to that. It doesn't even come close to it. This love is greater than any love, and he is greater than any boy.

It is crazy how fast things can change and how comfortable you can become with another person. There is no greater feeling than being able to look into someone's eyes and see a future.

6 Reasons Not To Date College Boys As Told By Scott Disick

They have no priorities or responsibilities

So I just started watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians for the first time from the very beginning. I actually am really enjoying the show, despite my preconceptions on the Kardashians. One thing that I decided is...I. Hate. Scott. Disick. That dude is the absolute worst. I began to think about boys (yes, boys) my age and how they act terribly towards girls and themselves. So, I decided to write an article about it and use Scott as the lead example. Let me know in a comment how you feel about Scott because I need someone to hate on him with me.

1. They are disrespectful.

Like Scott, these guys think they all should have things handed to them. They don't understand respect and hard work. If they do work hard they think people need to bow down at their feet. Honey, everyone has to work. Get over yourself.

2. They are all about sex.

They make all these stupid sex jokes that aren't funny and they guilt you into not having sex with them. They always talk about or make jokes about sex. If you aren't in the mood then you're a bad girlfriend.

3. They are selfish.

They only think about their needs and how hard their lives are. It's all about them and if it's not then they throw temper tantrums like little kids.

4. They are stupid and do stupid things.

For example, they get super drunk and make bad decisions, then try to shift the blame off themselves. They all have excuses and somehow try to blame their mistakes or poor judgment on you or their friends or like the wall.

5. They have no priorities or responsibilities.

They sleep until noon, but they also complain that you do things without them and "never spend time with them."

6. They seem nice and fine for a bit, then turn into assholes so quickly.

These douchebags all act so nice and things seem so sweet, until you have sex with them or don't do something they want you to do, then you are, as Scott says, a "peasant."
