Answering a Question from a Fan (?)

I don’t know if I would really call this person a fan, but the title made it sounds catchy. Anyway, I was recently asked this question, and I wish I could say I was surprised, but I tend to hear similar comments quite often.

Q: You seem like a cool woman, so why are you in your 30s and still single?

Here is a tip for you and all people who think to ask this of a lady – never ask a woman that preposterous question for a myriad of reasons. Most important reason – what the heck do you think her answer is going to be? I mean, seriously?! Is she all of a sudden going to tell you that one deep, dark secret she has hidden from everyone that drives men away? About the bodies buried in her backyard? About the one time at band camp that no one will stop talking about? About deformity that her clothes mask?

On another note – the only true answer to this question is simple for most anyone (except some of the examples listed above) and that is – she just hasn’t met the right guy yet.

I hope that this clears some things up – and – You are Welcome :)
