Single or dating
Here's how being 25 and single changes everything you knew about relationships.Your ride-or-die happy hour buddy is trading margaritas for some Netflix and bae, and your weekend plans will cease to exist because your friends have other plans with their SO. They're having better sex, they're shacking up, talking marriage; a few of them might be already engaged.No need to monitor someone else’s social media activity.Ever feel like the social media police when you’re in a relationship, constantly checking to see if your significant other’s ex is ‘liking’ photos or posts?
You'll crave for something more — dare I say it— serious.
We spent our weekends downing mimosas during bottomless brunch, scouting the cheapest happy hours and — if we were feeling "rich" — heading out of town for a girls trip.
While I did sneak in a date here and there (but only on weekdays because I didn't want to waste my weekends on a pointless date), the last thing on my mind was getting serious with a guy. Being single was never a big deal to me, but when all your friends (IRL and on Facebook) slowly start flashing their shiny engagement rings, 0r a "Say Yes to the Dress" marathon comes on, you start to think a relationship may not be such a bad thing.
Chances are there’s someone in their circle you’re not going to like.10. Save this money towards something that betters you in the long run.
Once upon a time (or, like, four years ago), I was 21 years old, fresh out of a relationship and enjoying all the aspects of single-hood with my other single friends.
