How do you respond to that lovely question, "why are you still single"?

I hate this question!

  • I've been single literally my entire life, so responding to this question is pretty much a full time job. Here is how I've responded over the years.

    Between the ages of ten to twelve years old: Believe it or not, I would have people ask me why I didn't have a girlfriend yet, even at this age. I would tell me it's because nobody liked me (I had a low self-esteem as a kid.)

    Ages 13 and 14: When I was in my Jr. High years, my self-esteem had skyrocketed and I was confident. I still had people asking me if I was single and I told people it was because I had bad luck so far (which is true to an extent.) To be honest, I was socially awkward at this age (at least in MY opinion.) I would tell girls I like to masturbate right when I would meet them (I was a weirdo lol.)

    Ages 15-18: Ok, so I'm no longer socially awkward and I thought I had everything going. Yet, I still had no luck. I would respond and tell people it was because I wasn't a privileged, popular student (and that was true.) I stick by to this reason to this day.

    Aged 19 to present day: After I started college, I quit worrying and giving a crap. I still faced countless rejections. To this day, I tell people a BIG reason I'm single is because I don't have money and women in my age group are often superficial about how much money a guy makes. Of course, this stirs up controversy and people try to argue with me but I don't care. I won't change my mind regardless. I also think it's because I'm smarter and more confident than most people I know and girls are intimidated by that.

  • "because fuck you, that's why. I'm single because i want to, because it's better to be single and happy, than to chase girls and be unhappy because you believe in the bs society tells you about not marrying making you a failure. I want the right girl, and it's either that, or no girl. Have you truly found th right girl/guy?"

    I have seen people going REALLY silent for this, look into the air for a few seconds, then either storm off in anger or just leave silently XD

  • When I was single, I'd just say that I hadn't read all the bids yet, or something humorous like that. Usually people would just laugh, and not repeat the darn question.

    To people I trust I tell them that my issues don't make me good relationship-material. Because that is ultimately the true reason.

  • Personally, I respond with a vague truth. "I'm not interested in a relationship right now. I've got too many other things I have to focus on, so dating just isn't a priority."

    It does seem like such an awkward question. What do they expect you to say? "Well, I hold guys to absurdly high standards, get angry when they don't meet those absurdly high standards, I don't believe in privacy, space, or friendships, I'm jealous of their pets, and I'm basically a shit girlfriend. So that's why." XD

  • because my standards are high as heck... and I haven't found a guy who make me feel beyond amazing, giddy, and warm inside. i haven't felt any strong emotional attachments or attractions to anyone yet. it will take a really special guy to do that. in the mean time, I'm very okay being single. less drama and energy, and quite honestly, I'm no where near ready and i don't feel suitable for anybody just yet... mainly because i don't have my life figured out. so why would a guy want to be with a girl who's confused, and doesn't have anything together... career, ambitions, etc. rather save the guys the stress while i find myself.

  • I usually just come back with a "because I'm me" which makes them feel as awkward as I feel when they ask me that.
