Think about these quesions seriously. Are you your own Boyfriend? Have you been single for awhile? Life still has to go on though, right? Having a man around does get things done…buuutttt now with him, not around you have to get shit done. So your weekends now include household projects or car maintenance regime. Here are 12 signs that you have replaced you need for a boyfriend by being your own.
1. ME: WHATS FOR DINNER? ME AGAIN: PIZZA
Dinner decisions become easier when you don’t have to consider someone else it’s just you, yourself and you again. You can even decide not to have real food and drink some wine and eat cookies.
2. YOU FIX YOUR OWN STUFF
Fixing stuff around the house is bound to happen, so you’ve invested in your own set of tools to help you with the handy work. You might need to watch some YouTube tutorials sometimes, but you own it and handle your business.
3. YOU BECOME A GROCERY CARRYING MACHINE
Because too many trips suck, so you’ve crafted ways to lift and carry 12 bags at a time to your fortress, and you’ve got stronger arms as a result. Bonus!
4. YOU HAVE A NEW CAREER AS A MECHANIC
Oil changes, brake replacements — you’ve got it covered. You know when and why you need to service your vehicle and you do so with such confidence that the maintenance guys don’t even try to sell you on crap you don’t really need.
5. CALL YOU CAPT. KILL A BUG.
When you see a bug in your space, you might still cringe a little, but then you get right to eliminating it by whatever means necessary. It’s all on you.
6. YOU BUY LINGERIE BECAUSE THEY ARE JUST SOO CUTE
When you see some racy delicates you want to buy, you buy it for yourself — because sometimes it’s nice to lay in bed alone, read a book, and feel sexy as hell with no one to impress but yourself.
7. YOU’RE NOW THE “INDEPENDENT” FRIEND
Whenever people mention you, they typically inject the word “independent” in there somewhere, because that’s exactly what you are. Not having a boyfriend simple just makes you a little bit of a pariah to some friends.
8. YOU BUY YOURSELF GIFTS.
In the absence of the elusive holiday boyfriend gift and, “OMG, I wonder what he’s going to get me?” you’ve already picked out exactly what you want for yourself, and you treat yourself to it. No wondering for you.
9. YOU REALIZE THAT YOU REALLY TRULY LOVE YOU.
You don’t have someone telling you how much they love you or how beautiful you look every day, so you tell yourself. You’ve gotten to know yourself on a deeper level and you’ve mastered how to self-validate in those low moments and that’s a beautiful thing.
10. YOU ANSWER ONLY TO YOURSELF. WHAT’S A BOYFRIEND?
For now, you’re the only one you need to make happy, and you do it by any means necessary. Even if you don’t know how you learn and you figure it out yourself. Because being your own boyfriend only means that you’ll be an even better girlfriend when the lucky man finally comes around.
If made it the far than you should have realised that being your Boyfriend rocks, its hassle free and downright entertaining. But hanging in there hun all this is preparing you for your Mr Right or your Mr Right Now.
