Here at BYU it is as if 95% of the single female population is obsessed with the idea of marriage. Everywhere I go I hear girls talking about boys. This would not be a problem, but when it happens all of the time, it become excessive and unnecessary.
First off, I know a girl who has changed who she “likes” about 10 times this semester. The three month mark has not even hit yet. Also, she asks for advice on what to do. For instance, she asked me if she should confess her feelings for this one guy and see if he feels the same way. First things first, this boy, at least to me, is creepy and clingy. So, I advised her to wait it out. There is no need in rushing into things. If you can be a friend with a guy first and prove to him that you have something to offer, then you will get along better if anything more than friendship arises. Did she listen to my advice? No. And now she doesn’t like the guy anymore and everything is a hot mess.
**cough cough I told you so cough cough**
Secondly, one of my roommates told me she is experiencing “single girl blues.” She says that she does not know why “everyone” is finding a significant other and she is not. Now, she has been on several dates, with several guys. I have not even been asked on one single date (which does not bother me at all). Things could be worse, hun. Then, she claims to not know whether or not she “likes” a guy or whether not he “likes” her back. Freaking calm down. Boys are not the world. Yes, I understand that you usually have a boyfriend, but there is no need to get desperate.
Now – relationships should not be rushed into. When they are it usually leads to heartbreak. Take a chill pill and relax. There is a time and place for everything. Just because you don’t have a significant other now, you won’t die. Trust me. Please. That way, I don’t have to wipe the stupid tears from your face which would not be there if you listened. Just saying, honey bunch.
So, here’s to those who are happy in their current relationship situation! Keep doing what you are doing, and please try to knock some sense into those who are aboard the crazy train. Please. I don’t want to beg… but PLEASE!!!
