” The world already gives single girls the side-eye; there really is no need to bring up singledom on dates.
You’re so pretty, I’m surprised someone hasn’t taken you off the market!
Some of you may be thinking that this question means the guy is trying to plan a future date for us. There is no faster way to make me feel like I’m failing at life than to ask me why I’m single.
