How Dating A Woman Who’s An Only Child Will Change Your Views On Love

We can’t announce that we’re only children without being judged. When people hear that we grew up without siblings, they assume that we’re anti-social, selfish, and overly dependent. However, that’s not true at all. In fact, we actually make amazing girlfriends.

  1. We’ll treat you right.It might be true that only children are spoiled, but we’re certainly not as selfish as people think we are. Since we’re used to getting unlimited affection from our parents, we’re going to continue the trend by giving unlimited affection to our boyfriends, because we know they deserve it.
  2. We’re mature.We didn’t have any siblings to keep us company when we were young, which is why we spent most of our days with adults. All of that time listening to our parents talk about the value of the dollar made us more mature, which is why we won’t act childish and bring unnecessary drama into the relationship.
  3. We feel the need to succeed.Since we’re the only child of the family, our parents are counting on us to make them proud. That’s why we put as much effort as we can into our career, education, and love life.
  4. We like our privacy.We won’t freak out if our boyfriend wants to have a night out with the guys, because we know he deserves some private time. It’ll give us a chance to catch up on our reading, anyway.
  5. We’re independent.Even though our parents pampered us, they also taught us to take care of ourselves, so that we didn’t feel the need to rely on a man. Frenchy said it best in Grease: “The only man a girl can depend on is her daddy.”
  6. Parents love us.We’re close with our parents, because they’re the only family we have. In fact, sometimes we get along with our friends’ parents more than our actual friends, which means we’re going to make an amazing first impression with our boyfriend’s parents.
  7. We’ll keep the relationship interesting.We had a few imaginary friends when we were younger, which is why we grew up to be so creative. That creativity can come in handy when it’s time to think of new places to go on dates and new moves to use during sex.
  8. We’re friendly.We didn’t have siblings that were forced to hang out with us, so if we were lonely, we needed to turn strangers into friends. That’s why, despite what people say, we’re actually incredibly social.
  9. We’re great in the bedroom.When our parents weren’t home, we had the house to ourselves. We had plenty of time and privacy to masturbate, which is why we know our bodies so well.
  10. We don’t mind being single. We’re used to being on our own, which is why we don’t mind being single. So if we choose date you, it’s because we genuinely like you, and not because we need you.
