We Need To Stop Saying This To Single People

Nothing is worse than when the holidays come around and the Single You get the typical interrogation by friends and family as to why you haven’t found someone to be joined at the hip with. In fact, it’s a big reason why we dread meeting relatives!

Here are the most annoying things you’re going to hear about being single this season and creative ways on how you can answer them (unless you have a significant other, in which case, brace yourself for “when are you getting married?”).

Why are you still single?

Ryan Gosling hasn’t accepted my marriage proposal yet.

Have you tried online dating?

Have you?

Maybe you shouldn’t be so picky.

You’re right, I’ll accept Gollum’s proposal. At least he has a ring.

Do you want me to set you up with some of my friends?

Again, is one of them Ryan Gosling?

There’s plenty of fish in the sea!

Actually, due to global warming and over- and indiscriminate fishing practices worldwide, entire reefs are getting destroyed and the marine ecosystem is at stake. The only thing plenty of in the sea, is not fish, it’s pollution.

Don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll be next.

The only apt response to that.
