Being single. Yes, I remember those days. Remember them well. Didn’t like them one bit. Well, except for the part about me being independent and not having to answer to anyone, but that’s another story.
Yesterday, I ran across an article called: “19 Things You Should Never Say to a Single Person” by Erin Meanley. Here’s the link. Oh. My. God. Did I ever relive my not-so-good single days reading this piece. Sheesh. It really is unbelievable the things people say without thinking.
Here are some of my favorites (and yes, people have said them to me):
-So, why are you single? Translation: What the heck’s wrong with you?
-You’re too picky. Would you rather me settle and be divorced in a year?
-You’ll find the right person for you. Yeah? When? And how many duds do I have to date before I find him?
-Wow! I wish I were single and in your shoes! Yeah, because being alone every night is fun.
What have you heard along those lines? Use any yourself?
