It happens: You make 1/2 of a tag team that can rival the relationship of Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift or Nadine Lustre and Yassi Pressman. Then, inevitably, she gets a boyfriend—leaving you single, alone, and totally without a shopping buddy.
Here's what really happens when your best friend forever finally gets a new plus one who isn't YOU.
1 You hate him. You hate him a LOT.
"We're official! Francis is really nice. He likes sports. And he likes fashion. I think he's hilarious! And cute! God, he's so cute! You guys will get along. Please be friends with him?" is something your BFF tells you the moment her relationship becomes Facebook official.
So you agree to have lunch with them. You meet the guy. He's alright. You think his hair sticks out in all the weird places. He doesn't look cute? He doesn't look like he's into sports? And he's not that funny. Like, duh, you're funnier.
You hate him from the get-go, because deep down you know you are never seeing your best friend again. Ever.
2 And it's true. You never see her.
Because now she has plans for the next 1,000 years. "Oh, I can't on Thursday. Chris and I are going to dinner, because 1 month na kami!" Or, "I'm so sorry, but I have to go to Jay's barkada thing. Maybe next time?" PLEASE.
3 Hence, you have no one to watch movies with.
You: Hey! They're showing Mockingjay this week. Want to watch Friday?
Best friend: Sorry, made plans with Gab already!
Best friend: But you can watch with us?
You: No, thanks. It's okay. :)
Yeah, so that smiley face? That is a trap. That smiley face means you are angry as hell. But your best friend doesn't get that. She doesn't understand! That smiley face? Yeah, it is also a code for, "You guys are going to break up soon, too."
4 You have so much free time now!
Seriously. You know how after a breakup you realize you can do so many things on your own? Oh my god, this feels exactly like that! You used to do everything with your best friend. Now you are the girl alone at a coffee shop, reading her Kindle. Every weekend.
