The first couple times I saw one of these little witty remarks on someecards, I thought it was hilarious. You know, because I was 22 and it seemed like everyone really was getting married while I was at the bar crying to the bathroom attendant about my life. But, four years later, this whole concept of millennial women shaming other millennials who are getting married or the self-deprecating “humor” that just comes with still being single at 25 (God Forbid!) has become exasperating.
The other day, I received a message from a friend who told me she felt depressed because one of her good friends had just gotten engaged while she still had zero prospects for marriage. I wanted to comfort her, but I was at a loss for words.
