Sisters, it's time to buck up!
You know what i'm talking about. The cookies. The chick flicks. The self-pity facebook statuses. The my-life-sucks-without-a-man blog posts. I am here-to-hither-fore-ever-beiber-more cancelling the pity party.
You know what I mean...
when you just know that a boyfriend is what you need, that he'll solve all your problems, that life will be magically better if you have a man. (and magically delicious?)
NOTE: this epidemic can apply to boys just as well. so if you are male and the shoe fits, just reverse whatever pronouns necessary and carry on.
Look, I've been there. I've sooOOOoo been there. But here's a few honest, blunt truths:
1. A boyfriend won't make you happy if you aren't already happy.
2. No man wants to be with a girl who thinks that way.
3. The not-so-vague, semi-desperate facebooking is not helping your case.
Because really, what guy in his right mind would read the following...
"i hate men!"
"why can't i find a good guy?"
"i'm just soooo lonely."
"well, another friday night at home..."
"where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?"
*insert not-so-vague song lyrics or meme of choice*
...and think to himself, "Gee, she sounds attractive and fun!"
Answer: They don't think that.
Here's a better idea: Get a hobby. Get a job. Read a book. Be interesting. Learn to take care of yourself. Go volunteer somewhere. Be independent. Be happy now. Odds are, your romantic chances will improve dramatically. But even if not, your life quality sure as heck will.
So put a smile on your face, put down the angsty social media, go out there and live your life. Because guess what? Life is already magically delicious just the way it is.
I'm now giving you all a virtual pat on the bum for motivation
