    How do you respond when someone asks "why are you single?"

    I'm looking for funny, witty responses.

    Men are seldom if ever asked this question. The assumption is because he has not asked anyone to marry him. In other words he's single by "choice". It's really non of anyone's business why you're single but if you just want a funny  or sarcastic answer you may say something along the lines of,
    "I decided to work my way though all the a-holes before settling down. Who knew there were so many?"

    I would smile and simply say, "Mind your own business."

    I like to say, "Because I am too much woman for an average man to handle."  If it is a man asking me that question, I will add, "Why, are you up for the challenge?"  No wonder I scare men away.

    "What's wrong with being single?" to shame them into not asking inappropriate questions. Finding mutual attraction these days is hard enough, people!

    well, I wasn't really trying to be funny and witty, but when I was asked this question awhile back I replied "well- look what I've got to pick from!"
