“I’m soooooooooooo sorry!” My girlfriend B texted the other day.
I glanced at my phone, a little confused by her message when the follow up message popped up.
“My husband deleted you on from my account on Facebook so I just added you back… add me, add me!” it read.
I rolled my eyes and sighed in resignation ; this was not the first time this had happened and I knew for a fact that this probably wouldn’t be the last time either.
Single girls get a bad rap, we really do… especially the girls who are not homebodies, no matter how “nice” or “tame” we are. In the eyes of boyfriends and husbands, we are the bad influence, the ones who are steering their women in the wrong direction.
Pleaaaaaaaase… All girls know the betches who get married first are the REAL party animals – the ones who still have that rocket fuel of all night binge drinking and dancing on table tops type partying left. Single girls… we’re just tired man… tired all the time because although we don’t go hard, we still have the option to go (which these days we prefer not to take naaaa mean?)
I think the misunderstanding is this: Men think that single girls are the reason why your girlfriend/wife is partying it up and going home drunk.
But here’s the truth: We’re not! Single girls don’t ask their attached or married friends to go out because we know her priority is her boyfriend/hubby.
However, when she asks, there’s no reason to say no. Single girls have a lot of time and freedom, attached girls have less, and married girls have even less than that so when an attached girl or a married girl has time (or has had a particularly bad argument with her significant other), she will immediately call her single friend (me!) for a night of fun. I am tired by midnight but as a good girlfriend and being the trooper that I am, I will party on… to the point where married girlfriend gets drunk and I have to call her husband and ask him to pick her up. .
My best friend’s boyfriends have disliked me because as mama hen, I am constantly making sure her drunk ass gets home in one piece and my friend B’s husband knows for a fact that every time they have a fight, she will call me and ask me to go out for drinks and eventually ends up passing out at my apartment.
So let’s get this straight, I am being a supportive friend dammit! If it wasn’t for me, who knows what my friend aka your drunk ass girlfriend/wife would be up to. I am the one who makes sure she’s drinking fewer glasses of wine than she’s drinking, I am the one pushing away sleazy guys who are hitting on her and I can’t help it that she wants to party when I just want to sit in my house clothes and take my make up off for an early night.
Men, let me break it down for you. We’re the ones taking care of your girlfriends/wives when we go out. We’re the ones who are acting as her therapist. We’re the ones convincing our girlfriends to stop arguing with you. And most importantly, we’re the ones suggesting she go home and have make up sex with you.
So yeah, you can thank us later.
