Some from friends in relationships ( mostly less than perfect.) some from random dickheads

Well you are doing it all on your own.
Why haven't you found anyone yet?
You haven't had much luck with men have you?
Spinster!
Why don't you try online dating?
It would be nice to see you paired up with someone!
Take up a hobby!
Well you didn't do the married bit.
Well you are doing it on your own aren't you?

Agggggrrrrr!

Just seems like some folk have to rub it in!

Just tell them you prefer to be single? Or "I maintain high standards"....

Tell them to wind their neck in, it's got nothing to do with them. Funny how so many people assume you can't possibly be happy or content unless you're in a relationship hmm

Shrug shoulders ... 'Dunno, lucky I guess'

"Do you think it is appropriate for you to comment on my personal life"? (Random Dickheads)

You know, that's a pretty hurtful comment...I'm sure I could highlight things that are less than perfect in your life, but I like you too much to want to make you feel uncomfortable" ('friends', well intentioned but not very close)

Feck off and stop patronising me..unless of course you want me to get depressed at all my failures and chuck myself off a bridge (friends and family, close, but who should know better)
