10 things single people don’t want to hear…

1) “Why are you single?”
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me this I would be one rich person!
“I have no friggin clue! Maybe if you told me we’d both know!”

fish2) “Plenty more fish in the sea”.
We all know there are plenty of fish in the sea, but there doesn’t seem to be many singles near me looking for a relationship.

3) “It’ll happen when you stop looking”.
I stopped looking years ago and it hasn’t helped me yet!

4) “You must be too picky”.
This is just crazy!! I think if we dated/ married the first single that came along, this would be an absolute train wreck.
{For the record I’m actually super easy going and will pretty much go on a date with anyone. But thankfully right now I’m not married to any old douche}

5) “Don’t settle for just anyone”.
So now I should be choosy.. I thought you said I was too picky.

6) “You are still young, you’ve got plenty of time”.
Good point! But I’d actually really like to spend these “young” years in a relationship.
Oh and every year I get a little older & the body clock seems to be ticking.

7) “Have you tried online dating?”
Just about every dating site out known to man. Including apps, free sites, pay per month sites and none of them helped. Well apart from starting LOTS conversations with plenty of guys and adding numerous amounts of contacts to my phone.

8) “You just need to put yourself out there more”.
I’m not sure where “out there” is? But maybe if you could elaborate that might be a great start.
And as for “joining more groups”. I’m single, I’m not in need of more hobbies.

9) “I’m glad I’m not single, coz I’m not sure where I’d find a man”
Thanks for single handedly rubbing in the fact that you are in a relationship, you have no clue where to help me look and that I have no hope in hell of meeting someone.

10) “I’m engaged” or “Will you be my bridesmaid”
We are honestly happy for you, but all the while dying on the inside!
A few years ago eleven of my friends got married in one year and I was maid of honour at three of them.
It was a rough time, especially as all of my friends started getting engaged.

I’d love to hear any others you have or the statement you hear the most?

  1. Love it! I’m not single, but have lots of friends who are. The video is hilarious and sums it all up quite well!

    Love this: Single is more than a facebook status, it’s a plethora of emotions and a journey of discovery.

    May your journey of discovery be sweet.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue
    is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    Yes!!! Yes yes yes! All of the misguided advice from those already married, ugh! One more I get a lot is that I need to be “alone for a while.”
    I’ve been single for a couple years now (and not dating whatsoever) and not a single person I know waited that long to start dating again yet a couple close friends continue to discourage me trying to date at all. It’s really easy for them to say, they’re married!

      Hi Single@30also, sorry I didn’t reply earlier (I get lost of spam) so often I don’t see ‘real’ comments. Some people need some time on there own, especially if they have relationship hopped. But one thing I am grateful for during this season that I haven’t settled or that I’m not married to any douche (coz I have certainly dated a few). I am hopeful that I will meet the right person at the right time (but who knows when that will be!)
      I hope that you are in a great place. Feel free to jump on my instagram or fb as I see comments on there more readily than on here.

  8. Very good post. I definitely love this site. Keep it up!
