The popular mantra is “Fake it ’til you make it”. To me, it’s just being fake. I ain’t knocking it though. It seems to work for and motivate a lot of people. I want it to work for me too. So I fake faking it. I seem to be getting better at it too.
The Kevin Hart meme above has been circulating the internuts as of lately. I never hashtag #teamsingle, but me and Nikko do have an ongoing “single” joke that originated while getting ice-cream at Bi-Rite one day. I told the cashier, “Just two singles please” and as soon as I did me and Nikko looked at each other, tilted our heads back and let out an ugly “wahhhh”. The funny part is, we have a blast being single. It’s just as fun as being in a relationship.
It’s also funny, because while we may have been single – we were never alone. Uh-uh honey.
See, that’s what someone who’s faking faking it says. I mean. It may not be entirely false. You may have got hit on by a bunch of guys at the game, fucked your booty-call that night, and went on a date the next day. But don’t play yourselves ladies. You can fake it to everyone but yourself. You don’t have to be alone to be single. Unfortunately, you don’t have to be alone to be lonely.
