Love, Kate: My Best Friend’s Life Is Perfect and It Makes Me Sick

Dear Kate,

My best friend’s life is perfect and I have to admit it makes me sick to my stomach. She’s the same age as me (late twenties) and we graduated at the same time, but she already has it all: great husband and two cute kids who she gets to stay home with. My friend makes me regret my own choices in life that have led me to still be single. What makes it even worse is that she’s oblivious and complains to me about her husband, while I haven’t had a boyfriend for four years. Am I allowed to remind her of how good she has it? —Zoe

Being anti-drugs (and, 90% of the time, anti-booze) and anti-unsafe-sex and anti-casual-meanness and anti-thoughtlessness and anti-assumptions and anti-random-no-big-deal-style-dishonesty can really make you seem anti-fun, I realize, but in actuality, it’s so much the opposite.

As usual, I brought TRUE ELEGANCE to the spa on Saturday, a.k.a. snuck in for some heat (wet, and dry) and some nails (I chose a bright pink Vinylux color with “POP” in the name to honor the fact that we had been cheers-ing like maniac toddlers with sippy-cups all day) in the midst of a fairly epic friend-hang with my pal Anna. Anna lives in “NorCal” which I like as a short form since it looks like the kind of corporation most northern Californians would hate. Anyway, once I saw a fully dressed and seriously corny guy in the lounge at the same spa take a zill selfies and then ask various staff members to take pics of him posing - this is seriously in the white-robe chill-space with the magazines and cucumber water and everyone just slip-slip-slippering around - so I didn’t feel TOO bad taking a photo of my sandy locker shoes, you know?
