23 Things That Happen When You're The Last Single Friend
As told by Lumpy Space Princess.
One day, you wake up and realize all your remaining single friends are now all boo'd up.
While you're obviously happy for them, you also can't help but imagine a very solitary future existence.
You wonder what you did to earn the title of Last Single Friend.
At first, being on your own more often than usual takes a little denial to enjoy.
You do your best to not come off as bitter when your friends gush over their new loves.
Though you find yourself having nothing to contribute when people ask you about your love life.
And phrases like "don't worry, you'll find someone too!" drive you up the wall.
But, at the same time, you try to bring out your flirtiest side, because you would love to join the club.
But then this leads to you being on the lookout for a potential future partner at every social event, to the point that you actually feel stressed about it.
Every date you force yourself to go on ends up with you just wanting to text your singles group chat like old times.
And the worst is when your coupled-up friends leave you at a bar to fend for yourself as you get approached by creeps.
For a while, this new routine gets very grating.
You decide to use this time and try to make a change, even if it's just physical - a haircut or a new wardrobe.
On the bright side, you now have a bit more time to just relax at home and not feel swamped with plans all the time.
You pick up a few hobbies you've been putting off for forever because hanging out with friends was more tempting.
You also take time to reconnect with old friends as well as make new ones who weren't in your circle before.
You have a whole new appreciation for friendship in general and consciously enjoy every moment spent with your friends more than ever.
And you learn that your true friends have not abandoned you and have not changed as much as you feared.
Except that your confidence has skyrocketed, because you've learned to spend more time alone and still feel amazing.
And you actually feel proud when you hang out with just yourself, because not everyone can.
And instead of secretly wanting your friends to break up with their partners, you offer sound advice when they ask for relationship help.
You embrace all the great new things in your life, and don't take any of it for granted.
And you remember that you are great - whether in a relationship, with friends, or just hanging out with yourself.
