1 Am I going to be that awkward photographer who takes all of your couple photos for Instagram?
When you see such cute couple pictures on your timeline, don't you ever stop and wonder, "Wait a minute, who actually takes these photos?!" My bet's on the poor soul otherwise known as the best friend.
2 Wait, this still means we're best friends, right?
I don't know what it is about girl friendships that just trigger your possessive side. I mean, my best friend is my best friend! She's mine, and mine alone!
3 Does this mean I have to wait for 4-5 business days to find out whether or not you can hang out?
All of a sudden, last-minute plans are impossible because their calendar seems to be filled with romantic dates and getaways.
4 I hope I don't have to hear about their first date like 10 times.
But I probably will anyway. *rolls eyes a hundred times*
5 *Thinks of all the possible excuses I can use so I don't have to hang out with them and be the third wheel.*
Oh sorry, I can't. I can't because I do not want to go anywhere where I will just be reminded of my single-dom.
6 How dare he take my best friend away from me!
I mean, really, who does he think he is?!
7 How am I going to finish family-size pizza with now?
It was almost perfect. I ate one-half and she ate the other. Now I'm here, sitting alone with a half-finished pizza.
8 ...and watch the same rom-coms over and over again?
If you're a bird, I'm a bird!!! Right Becc— oh wait.
9 Am I going to end up alone with eight cats?
Time to welcome Sally, Martha, Clarisse, Edna, Fran, Jean, Caroline, and Buttons into the family.
10 I'm not jealous though, really.
I mean, really, if my best friend is happy, I'm happy. When all is said and done and you've gone through these 10 flexible stages of grief when your best friend starts dating, you can't help but shed tears of happiness because your best friend is finally getting the happiness she truly deserves. You go, girl.
