Attention, single ladies everywhere! Yes, I am talking to you!
Can we talk for a second? Something has been on my mind. Call me paranoid all you want -- but it seems to me that the second a lady gets into a relationship, the squad goes MIA.
I'm sorry to call all the single ladies out like this. I don't know if you're meaning to be dicks, or if your behavior is just coming off as dick-ish by proxy. As a gal with a boo, I just think you need to know about a few things here. We coupled girls still want to chill with you. Having a boyfriend doesn't make us lepers, OK?
Coupling off doesn't mean I'm codependent
I still want to do things with you guys. Coupled people have interests outside of relationship-land. We are not in high school or college anymore. Boyfriends are no longer douche-monkeys we chase around like sad puppies. It's not about bragging about a relationship and it's not the bullshit "You'll find someone someday, sweetie" card (even though you guys will because you are badass).
What I'm trying to convey here, ladies, is that being in a healthy, happy couple doesn't make a woman a pathetic dependent in a relationship. She doesn't need to be with her boyfriend every single second. I certainly don't. I don't put him before you when we have plans. I'm not going to bring him everywhere I go or back out of girls night last minute just because he wants to hang out with me.
