Dear Groundhog,

I fight between loving the single life but also really wanting a boyfriend or attention from guys, how do I be at peace and live my life without thinking about my potential prospects all the time?

Sincerely,

The Single Mingler

Dear The Single Mingler,

First of all, it’s a totally normal human experience to love your solitude and independence and want some company at the same time – so if you think you’re alone in this, you’re not. I honestly think that there are merits to both, so it’s really a matter of what you think is best for you right now. And remember that your worth is not defined by your relationship status. While UD is a great place to find a potential spouse, it’s also not the only place you can find them. I would say to open yourself up to the possibility of any kind of love story – whether it’s that charming cowboy you met at Billy Bob’s, the checkout guy at Target, or the guy who sits next to you in class. Or maybe it’s someone you haven’t even met yet. Trust me, you won’t have failed college if you don’t get that ring by spring.

Sincerely,

The Groundhog


Dear Groundhog,

I have broken my phone 3 times this semester and every time I feel at first a little anxious but then begin to feel free and disconnected from the attachment of a phone. I always contemplate continuing to live without one but don’t follow through. Is God trying to tell me I shouldn’t have a phone?

Sincerely,

Dear Phone Hater,

Remember that phones are a useful tool. Like anything in life, you can get addicted to it and develop some unhealthy habits – but phones are not the devil. I know we all witnessed the graphic destruction of a phone last semester on top of the Charity Week Jail™, but your life doesn’t have to look like Fr. Thomas’ unfortunate demise. 3 times within one semester is quite the record though. Maybe you should invest in a better phone case? Your parents would probably appreciate it too.

Sincerely,

The Groundhog
