This is Thin Privilege

In freshman year a group of my new friends and myself went to get some coffee. The girls were talking about their current relationships, and it turned out almost all of them were seeing someone. I didn’t even get to say anything,  when the only single girl automatically turned to me, rolled her eyes and said: ”Well, it looks like we’re the only ones single here, huh?”.

The thing is, I’ve been in a great relationship for six months then (and still am, three and a half years later), but she never had to ask or listen to me. I am obviously bitter and single, just because I look a certain way.
