All the Attached Ladies!
Dear attached ladies,
I have been meaning to talk to you for a while. Yes you, right there. The one with a doting boyfriend, a cute crush, a lifelong partner. I really need to talk to you. Especially the ones who are my friends.
Please, please, for the love of humanity, spare me the details of how amazingly awesome it is being in a relationship. Don't tell me about how your respective other (henceforth known as 'he') keeps you up at night sending you lovey-dovey messages. Don't tell me about how he writes you love songs. Don't tell me about how he likes to cuddle you post-romp. Don't tell me about your first kiss, the first time he held your hand, the first time he told you he loves you. Don't make me your alibi if you're going out of town just to meet him. Don't tell me about how you fall asleep on the phone at night, and he's still on the line listening to you breathe. Don't tell me about how he sends you flowers everyday. Don't tell me about how he tells you he misses you everytime you talk. Don't tell me about how he is going to fly down from another country just to meet you. Don't tell me about your fights and how you much you hate him, when the next moment you're going to go right back to him again. Don't tell me about your uncertainties and doubts. Don't tell me about in spite of everything, you really, truly love him.
Because it just makes me realize how lonely I am.
