unplanned pregnancy
I wasn’t married, didn’t have money saved and I wasn’t even sure I had maternity coverage on my insurance policy.

The thing about being the only single person in your group of friends is that your alone-ness is on constant display.
okcupid
marriage
Holy matrimony happens for all sorts of people, regardless of education, background or common sense. Why did the Love Boat pass me by?
unpopular opinion
I had four years to pursue all of these amazing and available men who were right in front of me, and I blew my chance. I wasn’t thinking about who would make a great husband one day.
thought catalog
I feel confident that I’d be happy and fulfilled in a relationship but the thing is that I’m happy and fulfilled now.

dating
Everyone simply assumes that I'm doing something wrong, or that there's something wrong with me. I'm OK guys, really!
it happened to me
I don’t care if we’ve been friends for 15 years. You don’t get to call me out for being the only single person at this wedding.
the frisky
When I spend the night at my guy’s place, there is no makeup mirror.
being single
valentines day
Being single on V-Day (or VD as I like to call it) has never really bothered me, because clearly it’s the most ridiculous, fictional non-holiday in the history of the planet.
being single
If everyone on the planet were as innately fuckable as Jordan Catalano, the over-population crisis caused by all the 24/7 boning would have robbed the planet of its resources centuries ago.

Five steps to feeling absolutely fantastic about it being "just you."
