What’s up azizams. Shit’s about to get real tonight… well kind of. I’m going for some major honesty right now and I’m hoping you can understand.
I was at a friend’s barbecue a few weeks ago- My girlfriend and I were the only two people there that weren’t in “a couple.” And there’s nothing wrong with that– in fact, half of my friends from college are married (scary right) and I have no problem with it. Until… someone “pities” me for it.
At the BBQ, everyone else started sharing stories of how they met (over it) until one girl interrupts and says, “Guys, let’s stop– Farrah and X aren’t in a couple, this is uncomfortable for them.” (paraphrasing).
Excuse me? Since when is your stupid ass story about how you fell into your boyfriend’s lap “uncomfortable” for me? It might be boring and redundant… but I am by no means uncomfortable with a person’s relationship just because I am single. If that were the case, then my best friend from college and I would have NOTHING to talk about anymore.
Furthermore, why is it that people automatically ASSUME we are single because we can’t get a boyfriend?
