A Day In The Life Of A Single College Girl In 2017

I don't know what's more, everything being about couples, or Tinder boys.

A day in the life of a single girl is never easy.

Between having to see all of the PDA around campus and EVERY. SINGLE. SHOW. being about girls falling in love with boys, sometimes, being single doesn't seem like the best thing in the world.

8:00 A.M.

I guess it's time to get up and face the world again.

9:00 A.M.

*thinks to self* are there usually this many people holding hands on my way to class every morning? I'm just trying to make it to class on time.

10:00 A.M.

Okay if one more person gets engaged I will literally scream! *scrolls to see the neighbor from home is now engaged* ARE YOU SERIOUS!!

11:00 A.M.

Sitting in Starbucks alone watching all of these couples study together kind of makes me want a boyfriend. *thinks about one time that you had to share a bed and silently cried all night because you couldn't sleep in the middle with all of the covers.* Okay maybe being single isn't too bad.

12:00 P.M.

Calls Becky to go to lunch so I don't have to sit alone again at a four-person table and have EVERYBODY give me the evil eye. Girlfriends make the best relationships because they don't question you.

1:00 P.M.

Sitting in class "listening" to the professor while trying to plan my future wedding on Pinterest. Why does everybody say it is so stressful, I literally have everything planned already.

2:00 P.M.

Class is over and finally realizing that there is a test next week and by no means am I prepared *guess it's a good thing I won't be having any dates this weekend*

3:00 P.M.

Time to meet up with Becky and give her the best relationship advice even though boys never come near me.

4:00 P.M.

It has been an hour of Becky crying her eyes out about her boyfriend of 3 months who cheated on her during Mountain Weekend. *scrolls through Tinder messages while listening*

5:00 P.M.

Has Instagram always been a place where people just brag about their relationships? Why can't I just see more puppies?

6:00 P.M.

Time to cook dinner. Maybe I should just order some Chinese food and watch Netflix and pretend to study? It's not like I have anybody to impress with culinary skills anyways.

7:00 P.M.

Okay for real, is every show about people falling in love?!?! What happened to being strong independent women who don't need no man??

8:00 P.M.



*phone buzzes: You have a new Tinder message! Don't leave them waiting, be the first to say hello!* This won't hurt, right? Maybe we can grab a coffee and I won't seem like a lunatic.

9:00 P.M.

Well, Brad from Tinder only wants your Snapchat and doesn't even know who your favorite 'Friends' character is. On to the next guy.

10:00 P.M.

Okay, maybe I was too harsh on Brad. I have to stop being so picky about boys if I want to end up with one.

11:00 P.M.

Becky just called, she got back with the cheater and knows your mad but will never tell her.

12:00 A.M.

*has heart to heart with self in bed* You don't need a man who just wants to have with you. You are a strong independent woman who deserves everything!
