Many of us are frequently asked this question. Some, myself included, haven't heard it in quite some time. So, which is worse, the repeated reminder of loved ones or the deafening silence of the seemingly indifferent?

I vote for the deafening silence of the seemingly indifferent.

Being a widower and 63, the question does not bother me nor the lack thereof. Of course, if it is a single lady asking the question, Then that could be a good thing? biggrin

As a man, I rarely hear "So...are you dating anyone?" unless it is from an older female such as an aunt or co-worker who has grandchildren of her own. I usually get "So why aren't you married?" as the person asking the question notices my barren ring finger. I never have a good come back. I usually just say to the person asking that "I'm Catholic." and they usually respond with a "Hmm, OK". I've never have asked this question to any female since I always just assume that they all have boyfriends. I would have to say the posing of the question is more troubling than the silence.

So they're probably all thinking..."he can't get married because he's Catholic? I guess he must be considering the priesthood. I won't introduce him to my attractive niece after all."

I had forgotten about that one, "So why aren't you married?" I am more likely to be asked if I am married or if I have kids. It is difficult to answer regardless of the way the question is phrased.

If you are referring to the deafening silence of the seemingly indifferent eligible men, I vote for that...

Susan, Here in Oklahoma, Sometimes saying you are Catholic is worse than saying you are an atheist, I have had customers pray over me, When I told them I was Catholic. boggled
