A new engagement seems to pop up on my newsfeed every other day. In fact, my sister got engaged last week. It’s enough to make you question your life choices and wonder why you’re not engaged yourself, let alone even dating anyone.
Don’t panic just yet, though. Sure, boyfriends (and I’m assuming fiancés) are great, but have you ever had a mountain of nachos? Here’s why you shouldn’t wallow in single self pity and embrace the fact that you’ve actually been in a great relationship for years…with food.
1. It hits the spot every time.
Meanwhile, men can’t seem to find it.
2. It’s cheaper than a bf.
Especially during the holidays.
3. The cheesier the better.
I can definitely do without cheesy pickup lines. But mac and cheese? I’ll eat a gallon of it in one sitting. You think I’m kidding…
4. It doesn’t play games.
Think back to when you had your first Crunchwrap Supreme. It was love at first bite, and you’ve had a great relationship ever since.
5. It always smells amazing.
That overpowering cologne? Not as amazing.
6. You don’t have to share it with anyone.
Table party of one, please? I’d like one of everything on the menu.
7. It’s not judge-y.
Go ahead and finish your plate. Who actually brings food home, anyway?
8. It’s there to comfort you in a time of need.
A bf is quick to be like, “It’ll be fine!” Meanwhile, you know it’s not going to be fine. At least not right now. That’s why Ben and Jerry’s exists.
9. It cures a hangover.
Hypothetical bf: How many shots did you have last night? *insert judging voice*
Super greasy bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich: How many shots did you have last night? Right on! I’ll have you feeling better again in no time.
10. You don’t need to be monogamous.
Imagine eating one type of food for the rest of your life? That would probably be the saddest news anyone could ever tell me.
So go ahead and snuggle up with a bowl of popcorn and Netflix and chill by yourself. It’ll be the best night you’ve had in a while.
