Is it just me or do you guys notice that your friends start to change once they started dating 'seriously'?
Once upon a time when you guys were hot, young, single and happytreefriends, you'll go everywhere together, like Siamese twins, hand in hand, flirtatiously flipping your long silky hairs together like in Gossip Girl, going window shopping without having to worry about curfews and whoever that needs to be contacted every 5 minutes or so.
And when the devil comes, when hormones start to reveal its ugly red horns, your circle of friends will seems to diminish to a petty few. Less of them agreeing on meet ups, a handful of them will actually go window shopping with you, and even lesser number of them for lunch dates, etc.
Sigh, I seem to be doomed with this boyfriend-less crisis now. Most (90%) of my friends are attached. To ask them to hang out is like coaxing a bull to climb up a tree. Totally utterly impossible. And even if they do agree on meeting up, it's not always a pleasant one.
Because things come in package now that she's attached.
Yes, we are physically attached to each other.
Suddenly the boyfriend tags along like breastfeeding baby to his lactating Mom.
Go shopping? Ok, bf tags along. He can hold our shopping bags for us.
Go for lunch? Ok, my bf needs to eat too.
Go for movies? Oh, he haven't watch this movie. Can he come?
How can you say no? She's your friend for Pete's sake! (just an expression)
You'll feel totally neglected, useless, emotional and abandoned. Like you're the extra limb that has to be severed from otherwise a perfect body.
Aih, where art thou, single girl friends? I need you!
p/s: Derma exam tomorrow. All the best!
