That moment when everyone is complaining about being single and you realise you're happy being alone  
 In all honesty though, in the last few days I feel like I've noticed and influx of couples and people wishing they were "a couple" and once I took a moment to think about it - along with an awkward comment, "you must be an awesome girlfriend"* which I also have mega problems with - I realised that I am so happy and content being me. A lot of it probably has to do with that whole idea of "you can't be happy with someone else until you're happy with yourself" and that's totally true, if you put your happiness on the shoulders of others they will fail you and you will end up twice as miserable. 
I'm sick of people pining over couples. Yes, it's nice to be loved and to love, but there are so many other things in life, experience them! 
One day you will experience being in a couple, and it will be beautiful or terrible or all that you've ever hoped and more or a resounding disaster. Being in a romantic relationship does not make your life complete and it should not be a goal for everyone over the age of 8. It really gets on my nerves when 13 year olds are desperate for a boyfriend or girlfriend, to be perfectly honest, it scares me. When and why did it become so horrible to be single? You still have friends, family, acquaintances, you still have a life. Don't put it on hold for any reason. 
 
 
* I am not a girlfriend, and the idea that I, or anyone, is "a great girlfriend" for a singular, superficial act (in this instance I had baked cookies) makes my stomach churn.
