The Struggle Of Being The Only Single Girl In Your Friend Group
Madison Herley

Unfortunately, we've all been single at some point in our lifetime and lucky enough I'm in the spot as of right now. So hopefully some of you single girls out there can relate to these situations and struggles. No one wants to be the only single person in their friend group, however, it happens. The times you find yourself single while all of your friends are in relationships can be very much depressing and frustrating for yourself and for your friends. If you've ever been in this position, you"ll totally relate to the following situations:

1. Forced set ups or blind dating.

Just because you're single doesn't mean you're desperate. People need to understand that just because they know a guy doesn't mean you want to sit through an awkward meal with them and pretend to want to get to know them.

2. Always being the odd one out.

You're always the one that has to sit alone because everyone else is with a partner until you end up sitting next to some creepy one man who smells bad.

3. Witnessing awkward PDA.

I get it, you're so in love, but can't you take your hands off each other for a second? I mean we're in public, and no one wants to see you making out before class.

4. People say things like, "I promise, you'll meet someone when you least expect it."

For some odd reason, people in relationships forget that this quote is to make those single people to feel better about themselves. A little advice, we hate that quote.

5. You're always taking their picture for yet another Instagram post.

How many pictures does a couple need of each other? Let's be real, I doubt people are looking forward to all the cute pictures you have been posting non-stop.

6. Your wing woman/soul sister is no longer with you.

Well, guess it's time to have fun on your own time by yourself.

7. Seeing everyone in love makes you feel even more alone.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F06%2F636165837526243967379505586_alone.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=376&h=314b5c99b01b0a84f5fee2fb208ff8d9c60980c217f753d9f6f316d5de72aa2b&size=980x&c=396854144 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F06%252F636165837526243967379505586_alone.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D376%26h%3D314b5c99b01b0a84f5fee2fb208ff8d9c60980c217f753d9f6f316d5de72aa2b%26size%3D980x%26c%3D396854144%22%7D" expand=1]

Not that you aren't happy for them, but when everyone close to you has a significant other it just emphasizes the fact that you don't. And that feeling sucks.

8. You're sick of hearing that right now isn't the time for you.

You've heard it once, you've heard it twice. Enough is enough.

9. You will always be the third, fifth, and seventh wheel.

10. You find yourself drowning in work just to distract yourself.

You find yourself drowning yourself in school work, work and extra work, in order to distract yourself from being alone and the thought of it.

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,
