Iʼm the best friend. Yes, that best friend. I comfort my girl friends when they are coping with a break-up. I advise them when a relationship is in jeopardy. I play middle man when they are trying to grab the attention of some boy, and yet I am still single. Maybe one day a guy will come and sweep me off my feet, but until then I am the single best friend.
From my experience, being the only single one out of my group of friends doesnʼt make me have less worth or feel badly about myself. If anything, being single makes me feel empowered. I have so many more things to worry about than just boys. When I look back on my high school years there will be no “high school sweetheart” or “ﬁrst love”, but there will be that undying independence that I developed. I am my own person. Living my life without any interference from a male counterpart has allowed me to develop other interests and hobbies. The fact that I am okay with myself without anybody else makes me even more eligible for a relationship.
So to all you single ladies out there who are surrounded by girls with boyfriends: donʼt suffocate yourselves in jealousy. Take a step back and look at the bigger picture. You are all beautiful, independent, young women who will one day have a guy in your life. The time might not be right now, but it will surely come. If you have proved that you can live without a guy and be your own person now, then you can do anything you set your mind to in the future.
