As cliché as it is, communication is the most important thing in every relationship.
I’ve come to the conclusion that my actual soulmate is my best friend and — to borrow from the Internet — men are trash.
I find myself getting more and more frustrated and angry at them.Whenever they ask me to hang out I come up with some excuses to avoid them. Well, reader, what you do next is going to depend greatly on your answers to a few additional questions.It’s so weird for me to see them together romantically because we’ve always been good friends.Now it’s transitioned to something else and I don’t know how to handle it.I’m a person who really appreciates having strong friendships and good friends, so I’ve become really good at knowing quickly who I’m going to be friends with and have learned how and when to cut toxic people out of my life.
Some annoying part of me has always gravitated to couples of friends, though, and I’ve found myself being the unnecessary third leg of the group.Unfortunately for me, my best friend is involved in a successful, committed relationship, while I am extremely single.When your person has another person, it’s sometimes necessary to make them share. So, like any good friend would do, I have inserted myself into their relatioship as a permanent third wheel.It’s basically the Sophie’s Choice of third-wheeling.And even when you know where to sit, the servers are always confused. Personally, I’m totally cool with the boyfriend paying.Not that I mind being alone, but Valentine’s Day is a drag for those of us that live the single life.
