single social handicap

It starts to get a bit old when couples people tell you over and over that they don’t get it, they don’t understand why you’re single. They list all your positives, your attributes, why any one would be lucky to date you then question and re-question how you are single.

Funnily enough, I can’t read minds, alter the universe, predict the future, nor do I have a tracking device on the one, ensuring our paths cross when the time is right.

Your guess is as good as mine Einstein.

While you know it’s not meant in a patronising way, you can’t help but take it that way. It’s almost like their care and concern is a harder slap in the face than the actual reality itself, that you are almost thirty and single.

While they’re listing out all the things that are “right” about you it seems they genuinely believe the sum of these rights equal you dating, being in a relationship or getting married.

Churchill was a wise man; The human story does not always unfold on the mathematical principal that two plus two equals four.

Has singledom become such a recognisable social handicap that people feel obliged or justified to comment on it?
