Don't you just hate hearing, "the right guy is probably just around the corner" or "look at this way, you're putting your studies first" just because you've never had a boyfriend? We feel ya, Candy Girls!
1 No, I don't want to go on a double date with your boyfriend's friend.
"Do you want me to set you up?" = "Hey, I feel really bad for having a boyfriend while you don't so let me get rid of this guilt by setting you up with any of my boyfriend's friends..."
2 Not getting roses, chocolates or stuffed toys is not the end of the world.
I don't need to wait around for Valentine's Day to receive my favorite things! I can afford flowers, sweets, and toys all on my own. Thankyouverymuch.
3 There's a difference between being picky and having standards.
If there's one thing I hate hearing, it's that I'm too picky, too fussy, or too hard to please. Well, if I weren't, I'd just end up with the first guy that gives me attention and that, my friend, is not love.
4 Boys are not the center of my universe.
Just because I'm alone doesnt mean I'm lonely. Trust me, I'll be fine by myself.
5 February 14 is just another regular day.
February 14? What do you mean it's not just another Saturday?
6 Social media on Valentine's Day aka no thanks.
Instagram on Valentine's Day is either really cute or really disgusting. There is no in-between.
7 I don't need a boyfriend to have fun on Valentine's Day.
They say that Valentine's Day is a day that celebrates love. Well, I love myself so... time to celebrate me!
8 Look at all the TV shows you could've been watching...
My loss? I'm having the time of my life with my chips, dips, and TV shows.
9 "What do you mean you've never had a boyfriend?"
If I had a dollar for every time someone said this to me...
10 Love in the movies looks way better than love in real life.
Reality? No thanks, I'll stick to my mushy rom-coms for now.
