I am blissfully single and enjoying every moment of my life. I can watch any movie I like, eat whatever and whenever I want and go where I prefer. I am in no hurry of settling down or getting hooked on someone as I am rather peaceful in being single and am still waiting patiently for the right person. But the whole world doesn’t think so! Where ever I go or work, people come up with annoying things to tell me only because I am single. As if I deliberately want to be single, I am sure if everyone had a choice they would have picked the perfect ride or die to live their lives with. I don’t get why everyone has taken up an agenda of sorts to get me hooked!
I have experienced so many annoying and out of line things people express to me about why I am single.
Are you gay?
One of the most annoying things people come up with is about being a gay or a lesbian. If you are not straight or not seeing someone then probably people think that there is something wrong with you. So, because I choose not to have a partner or maybe haven’t found the right one means that somehow I am gay. Well! Maybe I am very happy, have you ever thought about that.
When are you getting married?
The first thing my relatives greet me with after not seeing me for a whole lifetime is, When am I gonna eat cake? First of all, buy your own cake and eat it too. Oh! and who is this guy your hiding? Don’t you want to get married? Relatives always want to dig into your personal matters, and I find this extremely annoying. Why is everyone so bothered about my marriage?
You should probably put on some weight or lose some weight
How dare you! Why don’t you lose your ugly face? I am very feisty and I just don’t react nicely to rude people. Hey, I am fat, voluptuous, chubby whatever you want to label me as I don’t care. I know what I am, and I am very happy about who I am. Just try not to justify that my weight is the reason why I am single.
Try changing your hairstyle
As if changing hairstyles would get anyone suitable alliances. If such is the case, none would be single today!
You’re too picky that’s why you’re single
Ah! Hello! I have standards period!
You should meet my friend, you two will hit it off instantly
Suddenly everyone tries to be a matchmaker and keep getting single people invitations to lunches and dinners with the notion of getting them hooked to a suitable relative or friend of theirs. Can’t we find partners for ourselves on our own?
Try online dating
Urghh!!! This is one suggestion every single must have heard of a thousand times. It seems nowadays that everyone is finding their partner virtually. Not that anything is wrong with that. But, I honestly don’t need to hear another E-harmony love story. Everyone thinks that we are single because we haven’t found anyone and so they suggest us to try online dating to catch hold of someone over the net.
You need to be seen more often and at the right places
People think that we need to be more outgoing and popular if we want to have a suitable hookup. Some people have suggested going to the bar, church, clubs and popular hangout joints as we don’t know about them!
You’re gonna be the crazy cat lady in a few years
You are so lucky to be single
This is also one of the most irritating things people say. It either is a distasteful reminder that we need to get hooked on to someone soon or it could also mean that just because someone had a bad relationship, we might have it too.
You must have a ‘Sex Toy’
I feel like punching the wall as I am writing this. As sad, distasteful and rude as this comment may sound. People have asked me this on many occasions, especially men. First of all, that’s none of your business. Second of all, THAT IS NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS.
Oh poor you! I am glad I am not single.
I hear this often from many of my friends and I don’t understand whether to take it as a genuine comment or a rebuke.
I want to scream and tell them to go suck a lemon and of course many other rude and feisty things. What are some of the most annoying things people have said to you guys on being single? Comment below.
