Springtime! That glorious time of longer days, warmer temps, and the promise of summer Fridays just around the corner. It's also the start of, ugh, wedding season. For all of you out there who are engaged and looking forward to your #cutenamemashupwedding2016, CONGRATULATIONS! No, seriously. It's great.
For those of you who are single... welp, here we go again. If you're not head-over-heels, can't-believe-I-existed-without-you in love with someone, then this is kiiiind of the worst time ever as your weekends slowly get sucked into the black hole of white tulle and frosting. But as you hemorrhage all your money this summer on everyone else's weddings, fear not! There are a few ways to not only survive wedding season, but actually have a pretty damn good time.
Friends with benefits
If the idea of going to a wedding solo sounds about as sadistic as trolling your ex's new girlfriend's Instagram page, you can always find a friend with benefits. But no, not that kind. Make a pact with a SAME-SEX friend (if you're hetero, opposite sex if not) who will be your standing +1 for the rest of the season, and vice versa. Weddings really are great places to potentially meet other single (horny) people and if you're looking for the next great love (fling?) it would behoove you to appear available and approachable.
