Whether you’re happily single, or hoping to find the one, people have their hearts in the right place, but often say the wrong thing. I’ve put together a tongue in cheek list of 10 things single girls are bored of hearing. Enjoy!
Are you dating? At every family gathering, occasion, friends night out.
If I’m dating, you’ll probably know. Unless it ends badly, in which case you’ll find me happily diving into my Ben & Jerry’s with Bridget Jones.
It’ll happen when you least expect it!
Why thank you Angela for your input from your picket fence pedestal, I’ll be sure to get back to you when Prince Charming appears whilst I’m picking at my toenails.
You aren’t getting any younger, times getting on. Don’t you want kids?
Sorry I couldn’t hear you over the loud biological clock ticking inside me. But thanks for your concern.
You just need to find a nice guy, you’re picking the wrong ones.
No shit Sherlock. All along I’ve been going for the guys carrying signs saying liar, cheat and idiot. That must be where I’ve been going wrong.
I’m so jealous! You can do whatever you want, whenever you want without having to answer to anyone!
Really? I’m not even going to explain this one. I bet you’re not jealous when you’re setting down to cozy snuggles in the winter with the BF whilst I’m struggling for heat out of a hot water bottle.
You could find someone really easily if you actually tried.
TRIED?! TRIED? This isn’t the 100 meters. Of course I’ve tried.
He’s probably just ran out of battery/lost your number/lost his phone/lost his mind/has no credit.
This isn’t the 90s. Don’t make excuses for the jerk. He’s not interested and he’s a jerk.
How long have you been single now?
Oh you know… A little while. *Pretends not to have mentally calculated every hour.*
I don’t understand why you’re single.
This is a tricky one. It’s well meaning, but frustrating all the same. Maybe I want to be, or maybe the people I’ve dated have been idiots. Either way this question usually leads to the “WHATS WRONG WITH ME” panic. So it’s best avoided at all costs.
You should be going out more, get yourself out there!
Sorry? I thought this would all happen when I least expected it! Mixed messages much.
All my single ladies, I hear you!
Until Next Time
