Unhappy Schoolgirl

I was told the other day, “You need to find a guy”. I was told this because most of my other friends have boyfriend and I don’t. What gives that person the right to tell me I need a guy without considering wether I wanted a boyfriend or not. People always throw these snarky comments at me about being single as I have been for a while and it is not fair, it is my choice at the moment to not have a boyfriend and I am happy with that. One of my other friends comes up to me quite often and continues to complain to me about how unhappy she is without a boyfriend and how she wishes that she could be the girl that gets all the guys. I constantly reply with, “If you’re not happy with yourself, you won’t be happy with someone” and “You don’t need to be the girl that gets every guy, you are perfect the way you are and if they don’t like it, they are missing out”. It really saddens me that society has pushed it into her brain that this is what she needs to be happy, have a boyfriend and be beautiful and popular. Ladies, if you are reading this I want you to know that you are beautiful and you do not need a man to make you happy. We are much tougher than we look and much smarter too, you can be as successful as you want and do what ever you want with your life, it’s all up to you.
