10 things single girls are tired of hearing


‘You’re beautiful, why is it so hard for you to find a man’

If you knew, you wouldn’t be single right? and men don’t just date women for their looks, there’re so many underlying factors to consider.

You’re better off single’…

…says a lot of people in committed relationships! Whatever difficulties you think relationships come with single people also want to experience them.

‘Maybe your standards are too high’

If you don’t have standards then you might as well date every other guy who hits on you. Knowing what you want is great and the right guy won’t make you compromise.

‘I feel sorry for you’

Yes, you want a partner but that doesn’t mean you’re desperate for one, and your happiness doesn’t solely depend on finding a man. You’re perfectly happy with your single self, thank you!

‘There’s a lot of great guys out there’

Even with that being the case, great guys don’t always mean they’re “the one” for you.

‘Be patient it’ll happen when you least expect it’…

… Anytime now would great! Telling this to someone who’s been single for long is really a waste of time because, really, how long are you expected to wait?

‘Are you dating anyone yet?’

If you were, you’d probably be home cuddling right now and flooding your social media page with some ‘love lives here’ posts. A very dull question to ask a person!

‘I’ve got the perfect guy for you’

People who usually “hook you up” have said this more than you would have liked and the guys were still not “perfect”. Thanks for the thought, but is he really?

‘At least you have a good job’

Perhaps you could go on dates with your job, cuddle or also talk to it right?

‘The bride is about to toss the bouquet’

How about she toss the perfect man for you as well?
