A few days ago I was talking to some people from college. Both of their relationships had ended approximately a few weeks ago (I don't know if it was their choice or not - I got the impression it wasn't). They were both talking about how they needed to learn it's ok to be single, which they apparently hadn't learned yet (judging on their sad faces). They clearly pitied themselves for having to be single. I nodded, smiled and wondered where people get the idea that your life is only worthwhile when you're in a relationship. Of course I understand you can be sad if a relationship ends, but they had been single for a while already.
Then they started talking about how they hoped there were some cute boys at the party that night. Rebound, anyone? ;)
