I’m not quite sure why it is, but, society hates on the girl who has a boyfriend. For some reason, if you have a boyfriend who is not your fiancé or your husband, or, is not ready to make that kind of commitment—he’s not a priority to your life or your plans. Your friends will judge you, your family will judge you and—it’s just a cycle of non-stop complaining and nagging.
Let me say: f*ck that noise, guys.
When you’re in a relationship in which you’re in love, respect, and honesty, f*ck what everyone else thinks. Tell them to take their opinions of your relationship and stick ’em where the sun don’t shine.
1. “You let him control you too much.”
There’s a fine line between controlling and having mutual respect for one another. If my boyfriend is uncomfortable with something I do, say, or wear, we’ll talk about it and come to an understanding and compromise because—it works both ways. If I’m uncomfortable with something he does/says, we can talk it out just the same. Respect is the most important thing in a relationship.
2. “You spend too much time together.”
Don’t tell me how I should spend my time. It is my time. If I want to spend it in bed with my boyfriend binge-watching old episodes of That 70’s Show and ordering nachos—I will.
3. “You’ll get sick of him eventually.”
You know what – everyone’s going to get sick of your bad attitude eventually, too.
4. “I miss who you were before you two started dating.”
Everyone in life grows as human beings—with or without relationships. It’s not fair to tell someone you dislike the person they have become, especially if they are happy and not harming themselves or anyone around them. Stop being bitter.
5. “F*ck him, let’s go get guys to buy us drinks.”
Sure, going to the bar and partying with randoms is fun when you’re single, but, just because you’re single and your friend is in a relationship doesn’t mean she’s going to disrespect her man to please you. Be considerate.
6. “You’re too young to be tied down.”
Excuse me, Linda, last time I checked time was a concept created by idiots. Just because I’m young, doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy my time with someone. And, the younger I fall in love, the more time I have to make memories with that person. Suck on that.
7. “Good thing I don’t need a man to make me happy.”
Neither do I, crazy. But, my boyfriend makes me happy on top of my already self-happiness. I don’t need anyone to make me happy, I have someone who adds to my happiness.
8. “Just wait until the Honeymoon stage is over.”
Just wait until you’re single and miserable for the rest of your life.
