Weddings as a single person can be weird.
I know what you’re thinking. Yes, weddings are festive celebrations of love and an opportunity to witness a covenant between two people we (presumably) care about. There’s a lot to love about them. Cake. Pals. Chaotic dancing. I’m not here to rain on anybody’s parade.
Let’s face it. Stuff can be more than one thing. My favorite sweat shorts can be comfy and unfashionable. Kale can be healthy and overrated. Weddings can be fun and complicated. Especially for us single folks.
There’s a lot to weigh and wade through. Finances. Emotions. Recovery. Do you know anyone going who might be willing to split a rental car? Will there be a boat load of annoying clichés that make marriage out to be God’s ultimate goal for every human person?

I get it. I’m a human person who happens to be single and attends weddings. What I’ve found is that our feelings are going to happen whether we want them or not. If we don’t deal with them, they’ll just end up coming out sideways.
