I’m sick of weddings.

I mean, I’m sick of going to weddings on my own.

I mean, I’m sick of going to weddings on my own, where all my other friends are in couples. Sick to the back fucking teeth of it.


  • Quit moaning! Just ask some mild aquaintance guy to go with you.

    Just make sure he knows it's strictly as friends if he's ugly as sin!

  • Oh christ, tell me about it. At the wedding next month I will, as far as I know, be the only single person out of all of my friends.

    There's only one thing for it (and Spin, I recommend you follow my lead on this) - get obnoxiously drunk and cause a scene.

  • I can't stand weddings. I get bored witless. So far I've manage to miss both of my brothers' weddings, and there's one coming up next month which I won't be going to either.

  • Why doesn't lc ask you to his wedding and you take him to yours?

  • No can do - the invites for the wedding said: "We're going to have to keep places fairly limited, sadly, so unless we already know your other half and have invited them, we won't be able to extend the invite to your partner."

    Although everybody's partners are invited, as far as I can tell. It seems clear to me that this so called "wedding" is nothing more than a big practical joke designed specifically to humiliate me.

  • Ah well, me dear, the one wedding you won't be going to on your own is ... yours. Sorry, momentary sentimentality attack.

  • I once went out with a girl I met at a wedding. Within 2 weeks she'd mentioned marriage to me, causing me to run straight through a wall, looney-tunes style, in my efforts to get away. I was 21 at the time, and she was a fair bit older than me. I should have known better...

  • No no no...

    Show them how fab it is to be single!
    Lie! Smile! Get pissed and dance a lot!
    It's great!

    And if they're not convinced - fuck it! You'll be having a great time anyway!

  • Weddings are like prom for me. It's best to go with a gay friend, or alone. That's the only way to have anything that resembles a good time.

    See, I am a proper spinster through and through.

  • The good thing about weddings is that, because everyone gets pissed, couples whose relationships are on the rocks tend to start arguing. I once saw a supposedly "happy" marriage disintegrate during the course of someone else's wedding. Now, if you're single it can be quite good fun to observe all that and think "at least I'm not in that situation".

    Not that I'm a complete bitch or anything.

  • Ah just enjoy yourself, you never know, you might cop off.

  • anika, ic, sooz, yezenia, they all know whats going on.

  • wear a shockingly outrageous outfit and outshine the bride...

    By Blogger frangelita, at 7:19 PM  

  • Free food, free booze, the cynical belief that the happy couple will be divorced in two years time.

    Whats not to like?

    By Blogger garfer, at 10:23 PM  

  • i second frangelita... i have a wedding to attend next week, all ex are invited (or at least 3 of them) and i don't really have a date...

  • Given that a fair proportion of all those couples attending the wedding will be unhappy in their relationship, a fair number will view you with complete and utter envy. Not much comfort I know but true nonetheless.
