Hey everyone

Just that really. If a guy you are chatting to/ chatted to/dating, has asked you this, what did you say?

Not witty but simply 'I know my worth'

Not witty but “no-one has met the standard”

'I don't want to settle for second-best'

@CountFosco I used that once at work when someone rudely kept asking why I didn’t have a boyfriend. It back formed because they believed me.

To a married person: “I don’t know, why are you still married?”

To a single man trying to chat me up... “Now, you tell me...”

“Just lucky I guess.”

Do single people really interrogate other single people as to why they're single?

TheMotherofAllDilemmas Thu 14-May-20 22:10:59

I think they say it as a way to flatter you but it is an over used live.

TheMotherofAllDilemmas Thu 14-May-20 22:11:15

Line, not live.

LilMissRe Thu 14-May-20 22:17:14

Just lucky I suppose 👍🏼

''just lucky I guess!'' is the best answer!
