Ugh to Singledom

Being single has its perks, don't get me wrong.  However, it has begun to be completely miserable when going out with a group of friends that somehow managed to all be coupled off.  I mean, sure, there's the few stragglers of the group, but I (as one of the single people) can't help but feel stupid going out with 5 couples.  It's just not the same as it used to be.  Also, at dinner, why is it such a big deal if you sit at the head of the table?  I mean, attention is going to be drawn on you no matter what.  No one wants to make it more obvious, but it saves the whole 'pity invite' of sitting next to a friend's significant other. 

Sometimes I feel as though the couples look at me IN pity, thinking, 'I wonder why she can't get a bf.  It can't be that hard.'  Ugh.  It IS hard, though.  It is.

I hate being the token single one.  Thank god for my group of single girlfriends.  It didn't used to matter as much as it did now; I guess it comes with age.  Everyone is so caught up with engagements and marriage that they leave us single people out of the loop.  Oh well, I guess when my times comes, it comes.

being single does have it's advantages, big ones, but sometimes you don't like feeling like a 5th wheel. i can relate to that.

I can feel that happening to me soon. I'm starting to realise that all my friends and the people i know are starting to find the right one and that i have a long way to go before i find myself being together with a girl, it starting to worry me because i know i'm already behind but people say love is not a race but i can see my friends coupling up and me being one of the guys being left out in singledom, i hope things get better for those who are single and feel left out.
