But there's a huge pressure from everybody to be in a relationship. I'm going to be true to myself and not get into one, because I don't want one. People tell me all the time that I'm so opposed to being in a relationship that I'm going to miss being with the person I'm supposed to be with. I'm not worried about that. Sometimes it's frustrating. All of my friends are in relationships, my parents keep asking if I'm a lesbian (just because I don't want a boyfriend..), my guy friends get a little touchy/clingy sometimes because I'm the only single girl in the group, therefore the only one they can hit on safely. My supervisor/main coworker, somebody I have to spend 7 hours with 4 days a week, kept on hinting that he wanted to go out, asked me out a few times, now it's uncomfortable working there. And he's uncomfortable because it's obvious that I'm uncomfortable. And it's like the more I don't want to be looked at that way, the more guys hit on me. It's like I put out a vibe or something. Complete strangers, friends, coworkers...I've taken to wearing a ring on my left hand. don't get me wrong, it's not like I think I'm oh-so-sexy and irresistable. Most guys (some girls) will hit on anything with a vagina who doesn't have a boyfriend hanging around. To be female is to have this problem. Why is there such pressure in our society to be part of a couple? I don't get it.
