Racy Stacy: One less lonely girl

Racy Stacy, Herald Reporter

So, you’re the last single one in the friend group. I know it can be hard trying to find time in your schedules and still getting that one-on-one time with significant others. While there are some negatives, there are also other positive aspects to keep in mind.
    First and foremost, don’t forget to be happy for your friends. Sure, being single in a group of couples isn’t the ideal situation, but if they are happy, you should be happy for them, too. Ask about how their relationships are going, but don’t forget the root of your friendship. Take the time to have just a girl’s/guy’s night and focus on one another. Try to get to know all the significant others. See these additions as new friends instead of losing your old friends. It’ll make all situations better.

    Take this as an opportunity to spend time on yourself. Treat yourself to some “me” time, whether that be relaxing at home, finding a new bar to go to or testing out some hobbies. You never know what you might discover about what you like or something new about yourself. 

    If you’re on the search for a significant other, try a few apps. Or, if technology might not be your style, go hang at a bar and see what happens. But always remember, do not settle just because you are single. Being alone can teach you a lot and shopping around the dating scene will let you know what kind of relationship you’re looking for in the future.
    The bottom line: Being single is not the end of the world, you will find someone, so don’t get discouraged. Always remember that your friendships are important and treat them well. Significant others can come and go, but you can always fall back on friends. Sometimes, the single life is a good life.
