I'm single, not pathetic

This Sunday at brunch (I like to say that because it makes us sound sophisticated) my friends and I were talking about another girl who is in a crappy relationship. I realize this seems to be a theme with me lately, but it's the truth. I'm not going to get into the details because I'm not even friends with this girl, but I will say this: Life is way too short to be miserable in your own home.

Anyway, this girl is in a crappy relationship because she doesn't want to be single or go through certain things alone. "Well, she sees how I am struggling to find a guy, and she doesn't want to go through that, so she's just staying with him," my single friend said.

So let me wrap my head around this: this girl, who has been through a lot, is so afraid of not finding someone else, that she is staying with a guy who seriously treats her like ass and is probably (definitely) (without a doubt) (I would put money on it) cheating on her? And being in MY situation is what is so scary for her? Being single is a worst thing than being treated like complete shit?

I may be single, but at least I am (usually) always sure of myself and I know that the people I'm hanging out with are with me because they want to be, not because they feel guilty or are too lazy to end our relationship. I'll take that over being able to have my Facebook status say "in a relationship".

  1. Amen. To all of this. People keep telling me I'm too picky about the guys I date. Sorry that I want to actually be interested in a guy.
