In the last six months I’ve had a lot of people ask me if I were married after looking at my “SNARKY” ring on my left ring finger. Obviously they don’t look at it closely. It’s a silver ring with “SNARKY” engraved on it. Who in the world would have a wedding ring that says “SNARKY”? I mean, I may actually consider that in the future, but . . . come on!
Today, someone asked if I were married (which I said no), asked if I had kids (if I weren’t married why would I have kids? Do I look like a single-parent?), and then after I told him I lived with my parents, he asked if I had a boyfriend.
I said no.
His next question: Why don’t you have a boyfriend?
At this point I was fed up with his questioning, so I said, “I don’t need one!”
Is it normal for people to ask me why I don’t have a significant other now? Why would you even ask that in the first place? If I met someone who was single, I am not going to ask, “Why are you single?”! Gosh.
Next time someone asks me why I don’t have a significant other, I should really be snarky and say the following:
Do I need to have a boyfriend to be a someone? Do I need to bend over backwards to get a man who might not respect me even the slightest? To set one thing straight: I don’t need a man to fulfil whatever emptiness you think I might have in my life. I’m a material girl and damn proud of it. If I wanted a man to make me happy, I may as well get an android or something because they will be easy to train and never argue back with me. Now piss off and stay out of my private life.
Har, har, har.
Honestly, if you were single and someone asked why you don’t have a boyfriend/girlfriend/ANYTHING, how would you respond?!
I mean, it’s one thing to have my MOTHER ask me why, but to have an acquaintance and others asking me this? Gosh. SOD OFF.
