My decent into spinsterhood at the ripe old age of 17

I have never had a boyfriend.  Well okay there was that one guy in 9th grade who I held hands with for three days, hid from on the fourth, and on the fifth day broke up with him over text while he was at a boy scout meeting. But I don’t consider our five day world wind romance as one I should mark down as my first relationship. 
Here’s the thing that shocks people the most I really don’t care about finding a boyfriend. No I am not a lesbian because according to the rules of society if I am not actively on the hunt for a boyfriend/in a committed relationship I must be a lesbian. Sorry to all the girls out there but I have no interest in your vagina. (That being said if Mila Kunis showed up at my door and asked me to marry her I would be all over that shit.) Unfortunately everyone else in my life expects me to be in relationship. My uncles who are encouraging me to “play the field a bit while in high school” my great aunt who happened to point out that my body could use some toning to attract the guys, to my mother’s half serious jokes about my best friend of seven years and I. (Sorry Ali love you to pieces and I know everyone assumes we’re gay for how much time we spend together but I do not  see you that way girly) even the guys at work can not seem to fathom why I won’t go after the available, kind- of -my age guy who also works there. (Again sorry Vito, love you, but I have no interest in dating you)
I really see no need to rush into a relationship for a myriad (favorite word) of reasons:
1) I’m seventeen….
2) I haven’t found a guy I have liked in that way yet (except for boy in western civilization class but that’s a story for another day) and I’m not going to date someone just for the sake of being able to say I have a boyfriend.
3) Nice available guys aren’t exactly falling from the trees here. Going to a school with a graduating class of 250 you tend to know everyone and all the good guys were taken in fourth grade.
4) another thing… I am not a size zero never have been never will be. That means guys tend not to look at me as much as all my  thin blonde track friends (no jealousy just fact) and so that adds another factor into the whole dating game, some guys don’t like big girls (except the creepy old guys that come into the hardware store seem to have no problem staring at my boobs), I’m cool with that we all have our preferences.
So to end this rant, when I decide to date is my business and I don’t need everyone in my life giving me there input because honestly I don’t give a fuck. 
(P.s I wrote this right before bed and didn’t even read it over I’m just going to post it 🙂 )
Hugs and all that good stuff
**fun fact: in the 1800s if a woman was still unmarried at the age of 28 she was considered a spinster**
