As much as I would look on the positive side and think 'I might meet Mr. Right there' (because that was always in the back of my mind), the reality was that my married friends would all have each other, and I would once again feel like the lonely fifth wheel.

'Glamour' Blogger: "I Don't Make Friends With Single People"

Recently, "Glamour" blogger Melissa Melms decided it was time to take douchiness to a whole new level with a post titled: "We Can't Be Friends Unless You Have a Boyfriend. I'm Serious…Kind of."

Mitch (Ryan Reynolds) is an underemployed actor and dude-about-town who's never met a skirt he wouldn't chase—or couldn't catch. Dave (Jason Bateman) is his best friend and complete opposite.
