We all know the question, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a sound?”
You know what’s even more of a prevalent and well-known saying us twenty-somethings have to answer over and over and OVER during the holidays? “So.. Do you have a new romantic relationship in your life?”

If it wasn’t bad enough that we have to spend the cuddle season alone and miss out on one more Christmas present, we now have to be reminded of our non-existent love life, and attempt to explain to the 400 relatives why we have yet to settle down.
It’s like, I get it. I get that at twenty-six years old, the majority of people around me are in serious relationships and continuing to go through the milestones with their baes (I actually despise that word and can’t believe I am keeping it in the final draft of this blog post). I also get that I’m alone. And not because I Netflix & ChillByMyself every night, but because I am constantly asked WHY I am single.
