No, we aren't jealous. As I just mentioned moments ago, we think you are deeply in denial about how crappy your relationship is and you've both become boring/wimpy/snippy/sanctimonious/exasperated/bossy/self-conscious/annoying and generally unfamiliar to your friends. Why do you think we're jealous of that?
It's not because we're single. Oh right, you think we don't understand how hard relationships are. We've been in relationships and when we found ourselves acting like you and your bf/gf/ltspwhnl we stopped dating that person. "Relationships take work".... well you must love going to work...thankless, stupid, unpaid, soul-sucking work.
But... But what? You have people who deeply care about you & we're concerned because you could be happier. You and your bf/gf/ltspwhnl are each taking advantage of each other to fill a void and you are acting like dicks. Sorry you had to find out this way that a bunch of people are in your corner wishing you fulfillment and self-actualization. It must be so hard to be supported and loved that you have no other choice to spend time with your lesser half, right?
We aren't giving you an ultimatum. We, your friends, wouldn't do that; BUT when you choose to spend time with someone who is making your life worse instead of those of us who love you it's insulting. It's exhausting to listen to you bitch and not change your life. It's heart-wrenching to have hope for you and watch you choose to be unhappy. It's really sad to miss the way you used to be before bf/gf/ltspwhnl.
So fucking break up already. Find someone motivated, who appreciates you, laughs at your jokes, doesn't act out, someone who won't make you feel bad, or manipulate you, or fight with you, or take advantage of your sacrifices, and someone that you really really really like super a lot. You know, like your friends.
