The number of "hey cutie" or "wyd tonight" has left me wanting to stay home every Friday night. And what's worst is that when you finally get up and go out on a Friday night, you run into that guy who sent you that "hey cutie" or "wyd tonight" text and you have to come up with a lie on the spot as to why you didn't respond.
Gets a little tiring doesn't it ladies? Instead of sulking under your covers on a Friday night, get yourself together, delete those dating apps and get go physically put yourself out there.
