How do you respond to others when they make silly, annoying or repetitive comments about you being a single person?
What kinds of things do people say to you?
I had a couple of relatives who thought it was hilarious to regularly ask me, “So how’s your boyfriend?” I would usually reply, “Which one?”
Or there was, “So when are you going to get married?” and I would sometimes reply, “I’m waiting for an archaeologist. After all, the older I get, the more interesting he’ll find me.” (Thanks for that suggestion Agatha Christie)
Or how about “I’m waiting for TAFE/College to run the course ‘Husband-hunting 101.'”
Or how about “I’m pretty amazing, so I’m waiting for God to send me Mr Amazing before I’ll even bother looking.”
