I have a lot of friends in relationships. When I say a lot, I mean almost all of them. Everyone is coupled up! And that’s totally cool, you guys. But I’m THE single friend. I’m okay with being single. In fact, I LOVE being single. I am having all the fun and going on lots of dates.
For some reason, everyone who’s in a relationship has a problem with my singledom. It’s like I have a plague. “Poor Caitlin, she has…single syndrome.” They look at me like it’s the worst thing in the world and say really stupid and insensitive things. I do not comment on their relationships! Why does everyone have to comment on my lack of one?
I’m tired of people in relationships talking to me about my love life. It’s mine, not yours! Get over it! Here are the most annoying things people in relationships have said to me:
How Are You Still Single?
It's not a curse, it's a choice. I am aware of my good qualities and that I am a desirable companion for some people. I'm single for the sole reason that I don't want a relationship.
But Why Don't You Want A Relationship?
Um...because I don't? Because I've been in and out of relationships since I was like 12? I just need a break!
You'll Find Someone
Yes, I'm fully aware that I will find someone. I am currently not on a massive treasure hunt for my beloved at the moment, but thanks!
I Just Want You To Be Happy Like Me
But who says I'm not happy? I do not define happy as either constantly fighting with my significant other or being disgustingly affectionate all up in everyone's faces.
I Wish I Were Single
You can be if you really wanted to. I feel like the urge to be single when you're in a relationship is a pretty big red flag and maybe you should talk to your boo about these feelings.
Let Me Set You Up With Someone
Your boyfriend's best friend just broke up with his girlfriend? OH BOY SIGN ME UP! I don't want to be set up with your boyfriend's sister's best guy friend, okay? I am doing just fine meeting people on my own.
I Just Wish I Could Go On Double Dates With You
Why can't you and your boyfriend or girlfriend hang out with just me? I don't mind being a third wheel. And double dates are weird.
