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!

"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.
