9 Things Not to Say to a Single Woman ...


Whether you’re young, free and single, or are seeing someone but haven’t tied the knot yet, you’re probably used to being considered single, and you’ll know that there are definitely some things not to say to a single woman. From well-meaning friends asking you if you’re ever going to get married, to people making comments about your biological clock ticking, it can all get a bit annoying, leaving you feeling lonely and desperate – even though you’re quite happy with your single status! Here are 9 things not to say to a single woman; avoid mentioning them at all costs!

1. “Are You Ever Going to Get Married?”

Implying that someone is sad, lonely and desperate by asking them if they’re going to hurry up and get married is just plain rude. Perhaps you don’t want to get married, and you’re happy with your young, free and single lifestyle. Or perhaps you’re waiting for the right man rather than rushing into commitment with just anyone who comes along. This question is definitely a major no-no and is one of the things not to say to a single woman, especially if you want her to remain friends with you!
