F*cked Up Cliches That Encourage Women To Settle In Love

Not only is there nothing wrong with being single, but it’s actually way better to wait it out instead of settling for someone who’s just good enough. If you’re a woman who isn’t settling for less than she deserves, you’re probably tired of hearing these 10 annoying clichés:

You’re no spring chicken.

Apparently, you’re old now. You should therefore worry about the fact that you aren’t 17 anymore all day, every day, because your worth essentially plummets post-high school. Who could possibly love crow’s feet and a couple extra pounds? You should probably panic and get married, ASAP.

If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one you’re with.

Just love anyone! Find any random guy that thinks you’re cute and love the hell out of him. Fake it ’til you make it, right?

Men are from Mars, women are from Venus.

Men and women aren’t all that different but this cliche suggests you’re from completely different planets and will therefore always have large areas of conflict. But that’s not true — you and your guy should be able to live in harmony even if there are gender differences.

Boys will be boys.

I mean, you can’t really hold a man accountable for his behavior because boys will be boys! So why even bother setting an acceptable standard of behavior? Just be OK with the fact that your boufriend acts like a jackass because his gender gives him a free pass.

The grass is always greener on the other side.

If your relationship super sucks, your life literally will be better with someone else. It’s not just in your head that other people have it better, they actually do.

The cheese stands alone.

Everyone else has paired off and now you’ll be alone forever. You’d better just say yes to someone out of fear that eventually, there will be no one left.

A career won’t keep you warm at night.

You know what else won’t keep you warm at night? A guy you can’t stand so you make him sleep on the couch. A good career will provide you with the resources to keep the heat up as high as you like, buy the most comfortable mattress in the state, and keep the thread count on your sheets at a ridiculously high level. The search for a good night’s sleep will most likely end with a financially stable job, not with a random man.

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

If your friends get married before you, it’s time to panic. Life for women is essentially just a race down the aisle, and you’re losing. Time to find a sucker to drag to a church before everyone starts pitying you for being the only unwed gal in your group of friends.

Your biological clock is ticking.

When you’re in your late 20s and all through your 30s, people become really obsessed with your reproductive timeline. Random people like to constantly remind you of your impending menopause (often extremely prematurely) and pressure you into pumping out a baby with whoever happens to be around. You don’t need that loser guy who happens to be hanging around and you definitely don’t need unnecessary pressure.

You’ll find him when you stop looking.

If love is a goal for you, you should probably completely stop trying and just wait around like a damsel in distress. Do nothing, and expect results! Because why would you want to be in control of your future, anyway?
