uh oh. i say some of these to my single and avidly looking friend.  ???

but i dont know. what's the right thing to say ba? i mean without being rude and all.

wala naman siguro gusto sabihan na "ang sungit mo kasi. you're so childish. you're so demanding. ang taas kasi ng pinapangarap mo. ang pangit mo kasi. you're so losyang na." di ba?

1.  It happens when you're not looking. >talaga lang ah! well, i hope totoo toh!

2.  There are plenty of fish in the sea. >marami nga! kung wala namang kahit isa man lang dun ang gusto ka! panu yon?!

3.  So, why are you still single? >care mo?

4.  You're too picky. >di naman! :D

5.  You'll find the right person for you. >sana nga... haay...

6.  He's out there. >oo nga, alam ko andyan lang sya pero asaaan!

9.  Have you tried online dating? >duh! me seryosong tao ba dyan!?

12.  When the time is right you will meet someone. >tamaa!

I find the lines "You'll find the right person for you" and "It happens when you're not looking" incredibly annoying and irritating. so bull for me.
I just realized I am not meant to be somebody's "someone" nor anyone's "The One";I am "The Only One" and I am meant for no one but "me,myself,and I".

Re: 19 things you should NEVER say to a single person:

1. What's wrong with you?
2. happy ka ba?
3. you're getting old and single pa
4. huwag ka ng choosy!
5. mag ampon  ka na..
 

Above are the rude questions that shouldn't be asked to a single person..

** 5 lang naisip ko  :P :P

i'm a single mom, a widow, and i've been the recipient of most of those remarks several times it makes my ears hurt. my standard answer is that good and decent guys in my age range are either married or gay. which is actually true since i'm in my mid-30s. and i'm awfully suspicious of guys in their 30s who are still unattached.

as for friends who are single and ranting about being single, i tell them, "mag-abroad ka kaya. baka pang-foreigner ka" or if they want to have kids, " humanap ka na lang ng sperm donor." hehe..

okay lang sa akin yung mga nasa list... i've heard them all and i know most of them mean well naman especially the oldies who think being "matandang dalaga" is the end of the world. mas nakakapikon yung iba who try to make you feel inferior because you're single...

my sister said something like "bakit single ka pa? mas mabuti pa pala ako... i have a hubby and 2 kids." tinarayan ko nga... :p

and i had a co-worker who thinks the solution to all my problems is to find a boyfriend. laging "look for a boyfriend!"... sabay isisingit how she is SOOOO happy with her husband and makukuha ko lang yung same happiness when i find my own man... eww.

^baka naman kasi sis eh walang ibang lalakeng nagla-interes sa kanya kaya super promote sya ng "look for a boyfriend" line niya.or wala siyang friends at bored siya sa buhay niya.

la lang.kairita lang yung advice niya.

^ang galing mong mag-analyze, sis! i didn't mention it but: first and last boyfriend nya nga talaga yung husband nya and they met online... wala rin siyang friends masyado at pati yung facebook nya less than 50 friends and mostly, officemates namin... lol

dun na sa husband umiikot mundo nya at akala nya ata ganun ang gusto ng lahat ng babae. kahit yung practical things like nahihirapan akong mag-commute, sasabihin nya "look for a boyfriend" para may hatid-sundo. or nung nagkasakit ako, dapat "look for a boyfriend" na sasamahan ako sa hospital... irita lang minsan kasi 'di naman ako humihingi ng advice! >.<

sabi ng friend ko saken "bakit wala ka pa ring boyfriend? ang ganda ganda mo eh!" di ko alam kung matutuwa ako coz sa totoo lang di ko rin alam kung paano sasagutin. pero natutuwa na rin ako at least may nagsasabi pa rin na maganda ako kahit walang nagkakagusto sa akin ngayon. :)

@wuvshoe: sabi na nga ba eh.sa post mo pa lang she sounded na super happy siya kasi,FINALLY,she's not alone.she has a husband and her world is finally complete.what a lame excuse!

sa sabi naman ng sister mo,kung sa akin sinabi yan,sabihin ko,"eh mas mabuti pa talaga ako sayo,hindi ako losyang dahil wala akong mga batang sinasaway at may pera ako pang-spa/salon/shopping".kairita lang uli sa mga nagsasabing inferior maging single.

@fall2pieces: sagutin mo na lang sis,"kaya nga lalo akong gumaganda eh kasi wala akong sakit ng ulo,wala akong hinihintay na text reply,walang nagbabawal sa akin na pumunta sa ganitong lugar/gawin ang ganitong bagay,nag-aayos ako para sa sarili ko,at reregaluhan ko ang sarili ko ng mamahalin/magandang damit/shoes/bag/make-up/etc. dahil wala akong inintinding anniversary o monthsary."

I watched Eat,Pray,Love kanina.love ko yung eksena na nagsh-shopping si Liz at Sofi sa Italy.sinabi ni Sofi na bilhin ni Liz yung sexy dress.ang sabi ni Liz,"for whom?".ang sagot ni Sofi,"for you".very much nakaka-relate ako sa eksena na yun,especially when someone's asking,"nice hair.may date ka?in love?" ang sagot ko lang lagi ay,"thanks.nope,new hair for me."

love it! ako minsan naiinis kasi pag sinabing ang ganda ko daw ngayon at blooming in love daw ba ako.. naku gusto ko isipin di ko naman kelangan maging in love para magpaganda/maging maganda.. i want to feel beautiful for myself and not for somebody else.

#17 has been said to me a lot of times! i know may kasamang compliment yun kahit pano pero nakakainis pa rin kung palaging ganyan ang sinasabi sa kin pag nalalaman na single ako. ang sagot ko na lang "eh anong gusto mong gawin ko mangharbat ng lalaki at piliting ligawan ako dahil maganda ko?" (maldita mode, LOL!)

meron pa kong cousin laging sinasabi sakin "ang tanda mo na wala ka pa ring asawa!" minsan gusto ko siyang sagutin ng "eh ikaw ang bata mo pa mukha ka nang losyang sa dami ng anak mo!" ang bad ko hehe!

ako talaga bad trip sa mga ngsasabi sa akin "uy kaw kelan ka naman mag aasawa, mahirap ang tumandang dalaga"... aba syado naman silang stressful pa kesa sa akin..sagot ko naman "nag eenjoy pa po ako ng pagiging single, saka po bukas na lang ,hapon na kasi hehe! pag mga tahimik na araw na lang..." biro ko lang yun...kainis kasi...

korek.. hindi ko rin ma-gets ang logic kung bakit kelangan iugnay na ang blooming/pretty ay isang taong in love.

1.  It happens when you're not looking- edi sana naging bulag na lang pala ko

2.  There are plenty of fish in the sea.-o sige sabihin mo sakin pag may nabingwit kang matino ah!

6.  He's out there.- sige kumatok na lang siya pag anjan na siya

i know some mean well, naiinis lang ako pag pauli-ulit tinatanung.. ay bakit minamadali ako?

eto pa "tomboy ka ba?" o sige suntukan na lang!  ;D

i don't know why it's such a problem for other people when they find out your single..
