Dear Carol

Why am I the only single girl in school?


 
I’m the only girl in class who doesn’t have a boyfriend. One friend whines on weekends about how much she misses her guy, then says, “You wouldn’t know because you don’t have a BF.” 
 
Dear Boyfriendless,
Go through your school directory, put a dot by each girl who truly has a BF, and you’ll find that most girls do not have boyfriends. I also assure you that if you’re friendly to lots of guys, something will eventually spark. Meantime, what concerns me is not your boyfriendlessness (if spell-check will let me get away with that word); it’s that your friend is so obnoxious. Next time she launches into her veiled bragging, say, “I get it. You’re miserable without him. Shame, but let’s talk about something else.” She’s trying to make you jealous, so why buy in? Plan active weekends of hiking, pumpkin-picking, shopping, movies and costume-crafting with her…or with more thoughtful girls.
