We're all experiencing life and our paths are leading us all to the same place but we're all getting there in a different way. There are many days where I get sad and envious of people in relationships, but bad moments don't equal a bad life.I moved into my dorm and immediately ventured out with my new roommates to look for our future husbands.I was surprised and very disappointed to find out, after several interactions with these supposedly grown-up college boys, that they, like me, had just finished high school and had not gained any impressive insight or maturity during the three months between graduation and the beginning of college. My ideas of being swept off my feet in true Elizabeth Bennet fashion took another hit when I traveled to Europe—because who doesn’t fantasize about falling in love abroad?I think one of the most difficult things about being single my entire life is simply comparing my life to other people my age.Sure I look around and I see broken, insecure, and self loathing people in a relationship or even married and I wonder why them and not me?
