Are You a Wedding Slut? 3 Telltale Signs

By Josie Brown

The bride’s dress is so perfect that you start blubbering the minute she walks down the aisle. The catch in the groom’s voice when he says “I do,” makes your heart break. And when the bride throws the bouquet, your vertical leap could earn you a slot in the Olympics.

Why do you lose your cool at weddings?

Because you see them as validation that there is a happily ever after — and you feel you’re long overdue for yours.

But so far your track record has been rocky. You are always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

Worse than that, you’ve become a wedding slut.

Here are the telltale signs:

1. You get drunk.
By doing so, you think that gives you a pass to get out of control. Well, you’re wrong. Instead, it gives you a bad rep– something that is unattractive to any man who may be attractive to a long-term relationship.

2. You get down and dirty.
Now that you’ve given yourself permission to let down your emotional defenses, they’ve ended up somewhere around your ankles along with your Spanx, thanks to some groomsman who found you an easy mark for some coatroom delight.

3. Forget “I do.” Your next day mantra is, “Did I do THAT?”
If you regret any action you may have done, just know that you’ve done yourself a disservice. Worse yet, if your pal the bride (or the groom) isn’t angry at you for ruining the festivities, you’ll be dissed for being the party’s biggest joke.

Do yourself a favor:  don’t ruin your reputation — or your life — by projecting your own personal relationship fears onto what is supposed to be the happiest day of the bride’s life. Instead, be happy for her.  By graciously sharing her joy, you’ll be a person others will enjoy being around– including any possible Mr. Rights.
