Okay this post is about my friends and myself. Me and my girlfriends are in our early-mid 20s. Some of my girlfriends are in serious relaitonships, others are engaged/married.... I am newly single. My girlfrineds have what i call "single-fear", they stay in relationships for fear of being single, or actively seek a new partner for the same reason. They dont want to go out to classy places to help me find a new guy, so i took it upon myself to find a nice guy from an internet dating site. Weve been on a few dates, and its been going good so far. Now, i am stil single,the guy is not my boyfriend (yet, who knkows?) .....but here is my rant. My non-single friends try to give me advice on how "sorry" they are for me bieng single, that it must be "really depressing" to be on your own. They "sympathize" with my"condition.." Im sorry, but if you have a rock on your finger, and: 1) someone to come home to at nite 2) are getting laid on a regular basis 3) you dont necessarily have to work to pay the bills, cus your bf/husband will do it 4) you have a constant partner to share your life with STOP saying you can "sympathize" with the single life. Being single, at times, sucks......but its also not that bad. I wish my girlfriends would stop "sympathizing" over lunch, and acutally come out at nite to see a movie or somehting instead of sitting in with their hubby..... (although yes, i am a tidbit jealous....) men are important, but they arent my LIFE. i have other things going on too. I just wish my girlfriends could see this the same way. what should i do?
