Things you shouldn't obsess over when newly single
Did you know that having a fear of being single is an actual condition? It’s called anuptaphobia. It’s what those people who go back and forth between “single,” “it’s complicated” and “in a relationship” on Facebook have. Isn’t that cool? Now you can post this on your friends wall! JK.
So to all you people who are afraid of dumping your no-good girlfriend/boyfriend because you’re afraid of losing your cuddle buddy and to all you people who just got out of relationships and are claiming your life is over and you’re going to end up alone: get over yourselves.
You're not going to be bored - you will have a life: I don't know what kind of books you're reading that give you the idea single people sit around playing Life and answering questions on Formspring all the time. Single people have busy lives, and in fact, they're probably busier than you were when you were dating what’s-his-name. Just think of all the free time you will have to do that stuff you always wanted to do but put off for lazy Sunday's with your ex. You could probably build a thousand Popsicle stick bird houses in the time you spent being "lazy."
You're not ugly: Oh gee, you just got dumped, and now you suddenly look like Roseanne Barr. Right, because that makes sense. You look exactly like you did yesterday so stop complaining about how you think “no one will want you.”
You're NOT a loser: Being single doesn't make you a loser, asshole! There are a lot of intelligent, law-abiding, charity donating, single people in this world who will kick your ass if you keep calling yourself (aka, all the other single people) a loser.
You're not a failure: There's nothing wrong with you other than the pity party you keep throwing for yourself. Not everything works out, and just because this person wasn't your soul mate doesn't mean you're tainted and un-dateable. Hasn’t your mother ever told you that if you’re dating the wrong person, you can’t find the right person? Or maybe that was Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants that said that…I don’t know, who cares.
You WILL meet someone: News flash! Single people are not extinct! They're still out there making eHarmony profiles and text message dumping people they're not into. Get over it, you WILL go on dates. According to some study made by some dude, there are 102 million single people in the world, so think about that!
