So, to branch off from my break-up thread... Since I've been single, I've noticed that I've completely started ignoring and avoiding friends of mine who are in relationships, and gravitating towards other singles. What can I explain this as? Is this a biological prerogative for sex? Or is it that I enjoy reveling in other people's loneliness to help me escape from my own self-pity? Oh, and when one of my single friends is like 'Oh, I met a guy', I get all defensive and then go all quiet. The hell is wrong with me? I should be happy about being single, not upset about it. Also, if you're lonely and you know it, clap your hands.
