"Why are you still single?"

Mar 23rd 2014 new
I was at a family gathering and once again caught off guard when my aunt asked me, "Why are you still single???" Too stunned to answer, I fell silent for a moment and then just mumbled an "I don't know." It irked me that I didn't have a great comeback. So what did I do? I googled it off course tongue The two responses that I found and will try next time are, "I think life is too short for me to not spend it with someone I deserve." or "My prince charming took a wrong turn and is too stubborn to ask for directions." tongue If you've ever been asked this question, what was your reply or how will you reply if asked?

I once read a post about polite answers to this and other inappropriate remarks. Some of my answers have been,
"Why not?"
"I didn't realize I had to be married."
"Ask the guys." or
"You haven't been praying hard enough for me." :) Always with a smile and a laugh.

Depending on your personality, don't rule out a good offense: "I don't know, hook me up, will ya?" laughing SOMEBODY'S gotta know my man, maybe this person does.

I'm single never married because the husband who will be committed to a real sacramental marriage in the Catholic Church has never appeared on my journey yet....
The operative word is YET.

Because there hasn't been a smart, handsome, intelligent man that has woken up from his sleep and met me yet that I have decided to marry wink

You have to find something glib to say as people do not realize that they are being ignorant when they say these remarks. The older generation at least have an excuse, because they don't know any better.

Mr. Husband is yet to find me. God bless his eyesight :-) ♥.... Good question. Perhaps you have not had me on your prayer request as you should. [Big grin]♥ God timing has never failed me yet and it's beautiful when it is His time ♥ Why haven't you hooked me up, I guess you're slacking ♥

My response is usually one of the following:
"Look at me. Do I look like George Clooney or Bradley Cooper?"
"Can't afford not to be."
"Cuz girls keep clicking on the --------'s profile above mine"
"If I knew, I wouldn't be standing here talking to you." (If asked by a female)
"Why do you ask? Interested?" (If asked by a female)
