13 Feb BEING SINGLE AND THE SOCIETY
“Valentine’s Day kemana? Oh iya sih. Nggak punya pacar ya? Kasian.”
“Saknoe di rumah dewean. Nggak punya gandengan. Sama bantal guling, tidur.”
We know it. We know it. So stop joking about that. Because we have done it ourselves. lol. (There are some people that i know, who love to bully themselves)
Only the singles know how it actually feels. We don’t think of gift giving. We don’t plan any romantic dinner. We don’t buy new dress or watch make up tutorial. We don’t buy flower bouquet also.
It’s like being single or does not have any “close enough but not yet official” couple is something erroneous. It’s not literally like that though. Sometimes, people love to joke about that. Sometimes, people love to be sarcastic about that as well. Once again, I don’t buy those jokes.
What I am concern is the kids. My friends told me that her junior high school cousin start considering why she hasn’t got a boyfriend. “I need to find someone soon. I don’t want to spend
Sad Sat night alone.”
Trust me. It’s not only her. There are still a lot of story which talk about same thing, same matter. We, who are mature enough know that it’s just a joke or sarcasm. But those little boys and girls don’t get it as a joke. I just can’t imagine there’s a new unwritten rule: If you don’t have boyfriend/girlfriend, you’re not cool.
a glimpse of yesterday’s joy. I am not the bride, of course. XD
