Weddings are like celebrity deaths ”” they come in waves. And this year we've had far too many of both. Here's what it feels like when all of your friends are getting married, but you're still livin' it up!
2. The Sound Of Yet Another Engagement Announcement Hurts
Hearing yet another friend announce her engagement starts to sound like nails on a chalkboard, and you dread going on Facebook because you know you'll see nothing but photos of happy couples standing on train tracks. It's almost like they're taunting you on purpose...
If all of your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do it too? Hell no! You're better off this way because you know you're too cool to follow trends and you're wedding anniversary (if you even have one) won't be the same as everyone else's.
4. Reflecting On Your Breakups Makes You Realize You're Better Off
...and still get to! That 25-year-old actor at a party? You can tap that! That well-put together stock trader? You can tap that! That guy whose name you didn't really catch but he has a nice smile? You can tap all of that! You have no legally binding contracts that say you can't!
6. But You Know You Can Find You're Soulmate. When You're Ready.
You can hit da clubs all you want! But nobody else can because they're too busy deciding if raspberries or strawberries make a better filling for their wedding cakes. You're definitely still dancing. Nobody's stopping you from doing that. But you're dancing for one.
For a moment ”” a brief and lonely moment ”” you question your own mortality. Why were we put on this Earth if not to find love? Are you too picky? How was Jennifer, who's frankly kind of lame, able to find someone, but you're still single and your mom says that you're great? Nevermind. Don't think about it.
9. But Then You Remember How Great It Is Being Single
You remember that you're free! You don't have to check in with another person! You don't have to fall into thousands of dollars worth of debt just for one wedding! You can starfish all over your bed, purchase an expensive purse without running it by someone and swipe right on all of the beaus on Tinder!
