Listen. Not every college girl wants a ring by spring or really even cares about finding a man. With the popularity of going to college just to walk out with a Mrs. Degree, all the confident and single ladies tend to get overlooked.
Well, ladies, in case you haven't caught on to 2019's biggest dating trend, I'll share it with you—it's loving yourself and staying single. Here what these 11 strong, independent, college girls say about their plans to stay single alllll 2019.
1. Boys are dumb. Simple as that.
"The male species literally is incapable of using their brain at 20-years-old, I'm going to wait until 30s so maybe they will know how to use their common sense. Sorry boys." - Shelby, 20
2. I want to grow on my own.
"I want to focus on learning more about myself and challenging myself. Also, relationships are complicated so I'd rather spend that time worrying about or focusing on school." - Molly, 18
3. Self-love is the best love.
"I need to learn to love myself more than I have been the past two years. I just got out of a two-year relationship (which I am still severely heartbroken over) but I am actually excited to be living life for me." - Caitlin, 20
4. The time spent on focusing on gaining someone else's love will now be spent on finding love within myself.
"It's not that I plan on staying single, I'm just not going to actively put myself out there and fine tune myself. I have spent the past couple of years doing everything I could to find a guy, dating apps, blind dates, letting my friends run my dating apps, socializing a little extra and it just makes me so tired. I want to focus more on myself and what I like to do. Take myself out for a nice dinner and spend time with me. Not watching Netflix but actually getting to know who I am and love myself again, because how you can expect somebody to love you and know you if you don't even know or love yourself?" - Leah, 23
5. Time for some power moves, sister.
"I'm achieving my career dreams without any man holding me back or making me second guess myself or my decisions!" - Jenny, 21
6. Someone print this on a damn t-shirt or something.
"I'm trying to get A's, not Baes." - Holly, 20
7. Well, to put it simply...
"Men are trash." - Bobette, 22
8. Your potential should not be defined by a relationship.
"I've found there's more to life then having a boyfriend. Right now, I'm transitioning from being a college student to my career and I think the last thing I need is to worry about starting a relationship. I'm going to focus on loving myself this year." - Sarah, 21
9. So much time has already been wasted...
"I plan on staying single because boys have been too much of a waste of my time already." - Erin, 21
10. What's the move in 2019? Self love. That's the move in 2019.
"For myself, honestly. I just want to focus on me." - Lex, 19
11. I'm the best me when I'm single.
"I just function better when I'm by myself. There's no extra stress and no need to please or impress anyone." - Jordyn, 20
