I blame my mother for any future or past relationships I have had…
But not really.
My mom has ALWAYS been one of these weird pushy moms that wants her daughter to get married at age 18, well maybe not that soon, but like the day after my college graduation.
I understand where she is coming from, but as a young woman I already feel greatly pressured to be in a committed relationship. Por ejemplo: Women are not supposed to be promiscuous and sleep around we’re supposed to wait for someone “special”, but no more then 5-10 “special” people in our lifetimes. We’re portrayed as being needy, and clingy, and desperate for love and I’m not entirely sure if that portrayal stems from reality or real women have just become that way over time.
I don’t know I feel like young single women are viewed as desperate, ugly, clingy, needy, “fat”, angry, self conscious, bitter, AWFUL …. the list goes on and single young men are fun, womanizers (but cool womanizers), happy, confident….. (insert more positive words)
It does’t help that one of my family friends is getting married in June and I am a bridesmaid, and of course it had to be made known, the only SINGLE bridesmaid.
