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!
unfortunately I am not single, anyway If I am single I would answer, its my life..
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!"
Because I can't find someone who has the same thinking as me... And the guys that I have met recently is still on their beast modes

Are you offened when someone asks if you're a "believer"?Twice within the past two weeks I've had people ask me this question which I find terribly offensive. A darling young mother and neighbor, in front of her three children with lovely Old Testament names, blurted out at the end...

What is the question you dread the most?I hate it when someone asks me "How old do you think I am?" I am not good in guessing people's ages. What if I say 50 and the person is only 40.. OMG! that would hurt the person's feelings and I certainly don't want to do that.. so I try...

someone asks you for your opinion and then they get angry because they don't like what you think. Why bother asking?
