Daily Distraction: #myfriendsaremarried
Posted by Katie Ostoich on September 14, 2012 at 3:18 PM
Ok, so we know that #howdoiputthisgently started a huge trend and there are so, so many GIF-based tumblrs out there...but this one I know will be the new favorite of everyone who sees it. Because, well, I think a lot of you can relate. This one's called #myfriendsaregettingmarried, and with a tagline like "My friends are getting married and I'm just 25 and drunk," how can you go wrong? It addresses many of the well, crappy situations, cliched advice, inappropriate questions and harsh judgements that single women sometimes face. Even as someone who was married at 25, I find this collection of GIFs and captions endlessly hilarious and very, very true. I mean, who doesn't feel this way:
And only the Kardashians could bring you this moment:
The Tumblr pokes fun at not only the well-meaning words that married friends tend to pass on to their single friends -- such as "you need to put yourself out there more" and "you'll find love when you stop looking" -- but also the subtle forms of judgement that can come from those friends if you're, say, going out a lot, ending a relationship that isn't working, or having trouble moving on from an ex.
There are pages and pages of these amazing tributes to the trials, tribulations, and yes, highlights of life of a single twentysomething, so head over to #myfriendsaremarried for a few hours of laughs.
