Dating: Why Are You Single?


Hello lovelies! Since I am pretty much having a horrendous week in the office, I have asked my Wonder Twin (seriously we are, we share the same birthday and we are both dating bloggers!) to guest blog today. Brittany Manson aka Miss Alone in Atlanta wants to discuss that oh so lovely question we ALL have been asked WAY too many times, “Why are you single?” (*insert eyeroll*)

Every now and then (more now than then) when I meet a guy, I’m posed with the question “Why are you single”? I like many women across America CRINGE at this question! What are you supposed to say that won’t make you sound crazy, picky, desperate, lonely, needy, vulnerable, sneezy, dopey, bashful, grumpy….ok well maybe not those last few.

Most of the time when I get this question, the way it’s posed almost sounds like you have a disease, like the underlying tone of the question is saying something’s wrong with you because you’re….dare I say it…..SINGLE! A lot of times women will get on the defense when asked and answer that they are single “by choice” (even though that might not be the case) leaving guys to think they’re not looking for anything serious.

My smart self began to answer with “I’m single for the same reason you are”. A guy countered my response one day with “so you have bad taste in women too?” I said “Yup! That’s why I don’t date them.”

So today I ask to the guys: Do you ask this question when meeting someone and why? Ladies: Do you like or dislike this question and why? Ladies: How do you usually answer this question when asked?

Seeing that I’m nearly spoken for, I’m not asked the question:) Initially, he asked why no one had snatched me up…lol My question is, single as in unmarried or single as in not coupled, no SO? I like where we are and I’m allowing this thing to carry me instead of for once, me doing the navigating. I guess in essence I can’t answer the question. :)

Since I’m single I don’t see a reason to ask them why! What ever the reason is the end result is we’re both single. So is really doesn’t matter why.

And I laugh when I hear the eghh, my career blah blah this/that lie….really!?…look in that mirro,come on…

At least for guys..they always have that excuse of ‘whatif divorce Alimony thing’, which I understand because it sets u back financially.

But it’s really pathetic,sad actually,for me at least to hear a 40+ plus woman say,’my boyfriend!’
A 50+ plus man saying,’my girlfriend?’ Really?! :lol:

So….why are Curling yourself in bed like that,Alone…at 40+? :lol:

Ex, at 50, saying my girlfriend means I get to go where I want, when I want, do what I want, no questions ask, and no one to explain it too. No midlife crisis, like being in my own space, don’t have to hear any griping, snoring or anything else that goes bump in the night. After a certain age for we all get set in our ways, and having someone curl up next to you on a regular basis would disrupt our universe :-)

For all the married, engaged, wanna be engaged folks more power to you just stop thinking because this is what I want, its what everybody else wants and it’s something wrong with them for not thinking the way I think!

Ladies: How do you usually answer this question when asked? Here lately the answer is “I am not single with a big smile” :-) in the recent past I have handled it accordingly………..If the person is being sarcastic or about to go into the black women 10 reasons why they are single, I brace myself and just would say it isn’t my season and I am at peace with that. Being single isn’t the worst but I was single a very long time to know appreciate a good man who loves me for me and rocks and rolls with all of me respectfully~ #humbly

Some people see this as an invitation to an insult in the never ending battle of the sexes.

On the other hand, too few people see this as an invitation to a compliment such as: “I’m still single because there aren’t enough wonderful guys like you around to choose from!”

Which invitation you pick shows your true personality. While most women are trained by movies, TV and their girl friends how to seduce men for sex relationships, few women today know how to flirt with the end goal of both people in the relationship being happy, and not necessarily sex.

I usually don’t answer the question. I make a joke and laugh it off. There might be a few reasons why I am single and given some time I might expound on them, but I’m already on the defensive and uncomfortable because I feel like the real question is “what’s wrong with you?”

I hate the question. I usually answer with the truth. I broke up with someone _____ months ago and have been spending time and having fun with my friends and family. I just haven’t given it any effort. I never ask the question. Everyone at some point in their lives (me in my 30’s) have been single at a point so it goes without saying. Ever sport has time outs.

re folks commenting on your singleness. I was speaking with a great aunt (grandfather’s sister recently) and she went through the spiel of my not being married yet and even went so far to tell me I was going to be an old maid. I laughed it off because what can you really say to your grandfather’s sister? anyway, I told my grandmother about the conversation and – this is why I love my grandma – my grandma had some words. she was like “that so and so gotta lot of nerve calling anybody anything” and then commenced to start running dirt from 40/50 years ago.

Haven’t we had this topic before recently? Sure seems like it.

I guess I’ve been asked why I’m single by friends, but don’t remember a man asking me that. I’m single because the right guy hasn’t swept me off my feet yet. I’m single because it is better than being in the terrible relationship I had before…

O/T already…So…Magnum told me last night he likes me. My question is…he was drunk, does it still count? :-) I’ve gotten the vibe for the past week and a half that he does like me! He’s on his way home today…

Most men ask that question because it gives them a direction to take their approach. To many of us (mainly the ones who don’t have a clue) it is a conversation extender and a way to advertise ourselves against the competition. It is also the silliest and most thoughtless question to ask.

Next time someone asks you that, tell him that the question is unoriginal and thoughtless, and go back to sipping your drink. He will either find a way to rebound politely or leave.

I remember once we were at my mom’s and my kid was about six years old. Well, a neighbor and good friend of mine (as they live in a cul-de-sac) was bringing her puppy over. Well, my child is scarily afraid of dogs. The puppy wanted to play with my kid. She took off running…none of us could catch her. My mom’s door was open and she ran in the house and the dog right after her. That was sooooo funny to watch because we were all saying “stop running.” By that times folks were in their yards cause she was screaming like a banshee…lololol Guess they thought someone was under attack or something. Naturally, I had to pick my baby up and calm her down.

That was sooo funny to watch. Wish I would have video’d it.

Woman shot and killed at northwest Atlanta bar

That officer stopped a man who was leaving the lounge “in a panic,” Lee said. “But as it turns out, that subject is claiming to be the victim of a robbery and a witness to the shooting.”

“We later learned that while he was detaining that one subject who was claiming to be a witness, two suspects casually walked out and got into a car and left the area,” Lee said. “They didn’t run or cause any alarm [or give] any reason for the officer to believe that they were involved.”

@Bluz: If you’re gonna be honest with him, be honest with yourself. “I thought in the beginning it was just going to be friends with benefits, so I didn’t care to know how much he drinks.” You may have said FWB, but you always had more somewhere in the back of your mind.

At some point, Bluz, you are gonna have to just relax and let things be what they will be. I know people with your disorder, and I see them try to control things in order to make sense of chaos. I’m not saying that you are in chaos, I’m saying that, at least with them, their thoughts would race and they felt out of control. A way to cope with that was for them to be very prescriptive and exacting about other aspects of their lives. Unfortunately, that tended to alienate the other people involved in their lives.

Anyway…she says that she sees a lot of hope in Magnum and that he wants to be healthy and doesn’t want to drink so much.

I don’t ask that question. It always seemed like a dude’s lame way of playing himself up by trying to imply that the chick is too good to be single.

I will say this, the kid’s mom is young and she’s got three little ones…bad choices. She’s trying to get light together (yay for her), just landed a pretty descent job. But, when you breed with hoodlums, likely that’s what you’re going to have. Y’all hear me talking about my kid’s got her dad in her veins??? She’s not a hoodlum or heathen but she’s him….alllll the way…lol Anyhoo, the one thing I think she’s doing wrong is rather than have patience with him, she just wacks him and yells at him. He’s young enough to be sent to the corner and it have an effect on him. Make him sit it out sometimes, rather than resorting to just wacking him. Not saying totally eliminate but he’s a tough piece of leather and she’s going to have a run the next few years with him.

10 First Dates Mistakes….Seems everyone is a relationship expert these days…..lol

Location, Location, Location! – Absolutely no first dates in the living room, yours or his. This sends the wrong message to a man. It tells him that you are entirely too comfortable too soon. If you spend the first date on his couch, where will you spend the second?

What Time IS It? – Grandma said it best, “Ain’t nothing open after a certain time but legs.” The later the hour the more relaxed you become making it especially hard to pay attention to detail, which is imperative on a first date. Also, dates earlier in the day allow for more flexibility. For example, if you hit it off you may want to add another activity to the date that wasn’t originally planned.

Clothes are Necessary. – Men are visual. The first thing we see often determines the first thing we think. So, remember to dress appropriately. Yes be sexy! But don’t let it all hang out. Leave something for the imagination; guessing is good as it adds to a man’s intrigue.

No Job Interviews. – “Where do you work?” “How much do you make?” “What are your future plans?” No one likes to be bombarded with a ton of questions during a first encounter. Cultivating conversation and listening intently will reveal everything that you need to know about him.

Attitude. – Believe it or not men are often nervous on first dates, so smile, be approachable. He is busy trying to make a good first impression, so throw him a bone [unless, of course, he’s a dog.]

Don’t get too cozy. – Refuse to be blinded by his charm and your attraction to him. Don’t become too comfortable. No sensual touching or hugging and cuddling on the first date. Men will often test you in this to see how far they can get which we, at times, use to measure how easy it will be to get you in bed.

Marriage!? Yikes! – Take it easy. Too serious and intimate of a conversation can potentially scare him off. Slow walk it (him).

Let’s Talk About Sex. – Just not on the first date. Your conversation tells a lot about where your mind is, revealing a piece of your character. Men observe this and act accordingly. Conversation goes a long way in creating the perceptions of the mind. Remember that.

Insecurities. – Insecurity is either a turn on or a turn off, either way you lose. It is important to be sure of yourself and to project that. Confidence is contagious but the absence of it cannot be hidden. Be confident in who you are! Real men find that sexy!

Go Home…..Alone! – We are all adults and have the right to do what we please with our bodies, but when looking to establish a healthy relationship, sex on the first date is not the way to go. If you give him all of you on the first date, he has no incentive to pursue you how you truly deserve to be pursued.

I feel you on wanting to straight snap and vendettas. Not to sound all hordy tordy but I’ve had a couple of incidents in my 15 year stretch where folks tried and tried…meant it for evil but it turned for good. Sometimes folks that undermine and spend their time planning and working and spinning that kind of evil, you have to wait for retribution. Indeed it’s coming. In my personal life, I’ve had it done to me. Not often but like I was saying yesterday, going blow for blow just pulls me in and stand me in the line-up to get what’s coming to me for partaking. Live and let live. Let folks do what they do, all the while you’re moving on, over and past it. I know it’s all cliched and stuff (that’s getting to be a favorite line of mine…lol), but living well and igging the hell out of folks sometimes works a bigger wonder than “get back.” My mama taught me that when it came to fast tail jealous heffas or when it came to my temper and learning how to sometimes let stuff slide and wait for payback to make it’s way back around to them on it’s own.

As a man, I don’t usually ask the question simply because why are you still single isn’t the issue. The real issue is what are you, as a woman, going to do about your situation, if it’s something you want to change. I want a woman who knows she isn’t the perfect specimen, or God’s gift to man, but is wise enough to know or seek to know her flaws, vulnerable enough to share them and courageous enough to change them. As long as she knows why she is single, I don’t need to know or care to know. I just need to have enough courage to trust her to make the best decisions for both our sake.

You know, you get the referral from another client, but you happen to be out of the office on the day they drop in. She does a consultation and takes the client. Since we are an LLC, we are technically self employed. I don’t work for my firm, I bought in and work with them. So, I found out after the fact that chick had snaked like 3 of my potential clients from the client who referred them to me. Ain’t that some ish? And she’s one of them “damsel in distress” type females when it comes to the opposite sex. Ohhhh, she just burns me up! As my SIL says, she makes my a$$ itch.

I almost wonder if work would be work if there wasn’t someone there that you had to put up with. I don’t think y’all understand how serious I am when I say I don’t socialize/fraternize/schmooze any of that at work. I don’t go to lunch, attend parties/showers, I don’t meet folks for drinks. I come to work, do my work, go home. that’s it. I’m pleasant. I exchange basic greetings. I’m not all up in your mix. don’t get me wrong. I listen and pay attention but I don’t dig. I don’t care enough. a previous boss wrote on my performance review that I’m extremely private which can be mistaken as stand-offish but I’m always lauded for my ability to stay out of office gossip and politics etc. it burns me up that this chick in particular was obviously taking my silence for weakness. like I’ll try disco because she likely won’t say anything. that’s what burns me up.

Maccy Do Ro "Guuja the Troll"

I just don’t believe in sharing with that, that I have built for myself without a person showing some effort for it.

To SlimUno, my head is not in the Clouds, I admit my sins and faults, I don’t hide them in a closet like some demanding OOOooo it’s in the past leave it there (That’s a form of lying). So I am guessing you also Celeb worship since you obviously came to their defense. I just pray if you have a child they not idolize these false heros and think “Oh, well so in so can get away with it, so can I” this is the problem I have. To tell you the truth, I read an article a couple years ago of a star quarterback in texas who raped a cheerleader and instead of throwing his butt in jail and ending his career, they punished the cheerleader and threaten her Scholarship and career. And to put the icing on the cake, forced her to cheer for her rapist, this one reason why I despise Celebs. If that where my daughter, their would have been a second story “Crazed farther blows Star-Quarter backs head off with 12 gauge for getting away with raping his daughter” but someone like you sounds like you support what these celebs do. So if support them, you are just as guilty. And I would like to know a VERY good reason why those who live an American dream life-style deserve a second chance on such crimes, when you and I both know if it where us who did it we would be nailed to cross. So please enlighten me oh great one.

maccy – where is your previous post? I’d like to get caught up before I start passing judgment. as for celebrity worship – I most certainly don’t worship celebrities but I’m also not for attempting to use one to make an example out of just because they are celebrities. when it comes to criminal justice the problem, in my opinion, isn’t “celebrity” so much as the entire criminal justice system is, for the most part, jacked up. there is no “fair trial” and this goes for confirmed criminals, celebrities and your average joe blow. countless folks are locked up and the lawyers, judges, prosecutors who locked them up know they didn’t have a darned thing to do with the crime they were convicted of. countless people are acquitted and there is very little doubt that they did it. don’t hate the players, hate the game.

ITL – sorry (about feeding the animals).

Although, i did go back and read the line about a “farther” so I guess Maccy is a he. Or a long way away. Or gassy with an extra “h”.
