You and your friends are always hanging out and keeping each other posted on what’s going on. As you’re updating each other on your lives, you realize that all your friends have boyfriends…and you’re still a single pringle. Even though you’re a happy single pringle and aren’t desperate to change that, here are some things you can do when all of your gals have significant others.
You don’t want to ditch your old friends just because
they have boyfriends—in fact, that would be major girl code violation. However,
now can be a great time to make some new buds! Since your old friends are
probably spending more time with their sweeties and a little less time with
you, you have more free time to hang out with other people. Get to know the new
girl in school or pick a new partner in science class this school year. Your
old friends will still always be there and, hey, you can always introduce your
new friends to them. The more the merrier!
time with your family
Focusing on family is always a good way to deal with
anything. If you find yourself having more free time because your friends have
boyfriends , take this as an opportunity to hang out with your siblings more or
your parents. Organize a family game night and spend some quality time on a
weekend night in. Siblings can be great friends and your parents will totally
appreciate—and take notice of—you making an effort to get to know them better.
a new hobby
To keep yourself distracted, you can
start a new hobby. Maybe you’ve always wanted to paint, or learn how to make
flower headbands or bake rainbow cupcakes. Search some fun, cool ideas and hit
up your local crafts store for supplies. You’ll feel super proud and
accomplished when you see you created something adorable. And even if your
baking skills aren’t up to par, the process will be super fun anyway!
extra mile in school
Now that you are looking for new things to do, you
can direct some of that energy on school. Maybe you’ve been having a hard time
in science or don’t really understand an assignment for your English class.
Take the extra care now to catch up on your schoolwork or make appointments to
talk to your teachers after class about anything you don’t understand. This
will totally pay off when you get your grades and they’re higher than ever.
Find a babysitting job or hit up your local ice cream
shop or retail store for a potential gig. Making some extra spending money will
totally make you feel better. Not to mention you’ll be able to build up a
resume for the future, buy some cute new outfits for school, and even show your
parents you are totally responsible. A win all around!
