See #25, in which I explain that I do not have a single best friend. I’ve got a group of people who I’m really close to in NY, and I have a few in NH as well. A couple of my besties ended up in Boston for college, so I have some there, too.
I’ve broken exactly two (to my knowledge). Both times I felt awful.
In the overall grand scheme of things? Yes. I’m getting a top-notch education at my dream school (and I love my major), I’m friends with some of the coolest people on earth, I love my job as an RA (and because of it I have a baller apartment), I do okay with the menfolk, and I never have to go hungry.
At the moment? Maybe not entirely. I’ve had a really rough semester and because of that I haven’t been able to be there for my friends, something that is incredibly important to me. I don’t get to spend enough time with them and I don’t have the emotional capacity to be a support system. I have made no effort in the guy department (and have even pushed a couple away) because I just don’t have time to be someone’s girlfriend. Things with my parents have been strained at times, and I’m also put in the middle of them and my brother when they have a falling out.
BUT when this semester is over, my classes will be easier and I will have free time for friends and yoga and maybe even dating. And other things (like my parents, financial worries, etc) won’t bother me as much because I’ll be zen and probably getting laid more. So. Is it winter break yet?
I refuse to participate in any kind of slut-shaming.
I’ve actually been thinking about this lately, and the answer is no. I have people who know very different aspects of me, and have a vague understanding of the other parts, but no one who gets the whole picture. I’m kind of okay with it? I can talk to different people about different things, instead of only having one “go-to” person.
I’d like to think I’m a little too young to have already experienced The Best Night of My Life. Putting that aside, I have a couple of questions:
I don’t think I can adequately answer this question without clearing a few things up first.
I have been called many things, but never scrumptious. I think I’d be concerned if someone called me that.
Yes, but I’m usually the big spoon so it doesn’t happen often. What? Stop laughing! I JUST LIKE BEING BIG SPOON, OKAY? This has actually been a point of contention with some guys. Others welcome the change.
If you know my sense of humor, then no. I love laughing, so I’m not going to make it difficult.
Honestly, not a single one! I wouldn’t be able to call anyone if I didn’t have my cell phone.
I would wonder why he never mentioned it before… And think perhaps I don’t want to be involved with him anyway. Who hides the fact that they’re seeing someone?! Sketchy.
I still have his copy of “All The President’s Men.” I prefer the movie.
I’m not really a hand-holder… so yes. A person would have to mean a lot to me in order for me to be willing to deal with the inevitable sweaty hands issue.
