happy singles awareness day
Dumbest Question Award: "Why don't you have a boyfriend??"
What do people expect you to say when they ask that? Oh, well I've thought long and hard and I've come to a few conclusions:
a) I don't look like a swimsuit model
2) My high school English teacher senior year once told me I'm intimidating because I know what I want out of life...?
I guess I should find it flattering that people apparently find the fact that I don't so shocking, but it also feels a little backhanded--can one not experience self-worth without being someone's significant other?

(Here I am at my childhood friend, Shelley's, wedding in December. Her dad called me off the dance floor to tell me, in front of my dad, that he can't believe I "don't have a line of guys waiting to go out with me and that I should really try the online dating scene." Thank you?)
My only response: laugh it up.
