Don't get me wrong--I'm extremely happy for my friends who fall under one of the above categories. But it's taking a toll on me. I haven't even liked anyone in over a year, let alone dated anyone. Sure, I've gone out on a date or two, but it's never the right guy.
I usually stoop down to asking what's wrong with me, but I know better. I haven't met anyone. It's difficult, being a second-semester college senior. There isn't anyone new to meet, and you have to wait until the next chapter of your life. The waiting is the hard part--I'm getting impatient.
On the other hand, I could be in the Middle East this summer, France next year, or anywhere across the United States. Do I really want to involve myself right now, when in four short months I'll be picking up and moving? I want the freedom to make decisions about next year and my life after that and, at this point, I don't want to be tied down.
That's my little rant. I know that I'll meet someone wonderful, but it just hasn't happened. And honestly, it's really hard when all of my friends are infatuated with their significant others, especially around the holidays.
The one thing I will add--if you are lucky enough to have a SO, please do not be obnoxious about it on social media, and refrain from PDA overkill. If you're really that much in love, be confident and comfortable that it is mutual, and don't shout it for the entire world to see on a daily basis.
