Being single—especially as your get older—has major plusses. You live your life free and easy, you’ve got more time and money to spend on yourself, and you can live more spontaneously. But that doesn’t mean singledom doesn’t come without some major drawbacks, as well. Chiefly: Your married friends and family are constantly interviewing you, testing you, and wondering when you’re going to settle down yourself.
1.“So, are you dating anyone?”
The classic. If you were dating someone you wanted the other person to know about, you probably would’ve mentioned it, or they would have already met them. This is especially irritating if it’s asked by someone you haven’t seen with in a while.
