Dating before age 16
Your ride-or-die happy hour buddy is trading margaritas for some Netflix and bae, and your weekend plans will cease to exist because your friends have other plans with their SO. They're having better sex, they're shacking up, talking marriage; a few of them might be already engaged.
They're also making everything a "we."Case in point: Every time you see your BFF, she strings her BF along, making you the designated third wheel.
But as all your friends opt for more romantic plans with their SO (and Instagramming the whole thing), you're trying to avoid social media as much as possible.
The FOMO But instead of ranting with your BFF about how 23 is way too young to get engaged, you've stopped because well, you're 25, and it's a pretty normal thing to do at that age. Sorry parents, your kids are cute and all, but the fact that you're responsible for tiny lives is just mind-blowing.
Holding yourself accountable to a “plan” of any sort is only going to stress you out even more when you don't achieve it.
Besides, it's more fun when you don't live life by the book, in my opinion.
Here's how being 25 and single changes everything you knew about relationships.Please, don't think you're going to be the one that will change his fuckboy ways. There has to be something more — a common interest — to make him relationship material. It's about someone who's genuinely excited about your plans and personal goals, whether it'd be your career or your dream to run a marathon. Like that wise Facebook meme once said, having "swag" doesn't pay the bills.This is probably the best thing that'll ever happen to you because you can go about your life living your unapologetic, authentic self. Once upon a time (or, like, four years ago), I was 21 years old, fresh out of a relationship and enjoying all the aspects of single-hood with my other single friends.We spent our weekends downing mimosas during bottomless brunch, scouting the cheapest happy hours and — if we were feeling "rich" — heading out of town for a girls trip.
