What not to say to single people

“So, when are you getting married?”

“Don’t worry, when the time is right, it’ll all fall into place!”

“You’re too picky!”

“You should learn to compromise”

“Your life must be so exciting!”

[All other generic problem solving type gyaan]

What can you do instead?

  1. I hope you know that you’re amazing and you deserve to find exactly what you’re looking for.
  2. I know it’s not easy to watch someone else get lucky when you’ve been trying for so long.
  3. Damn, that sounds hard. It must be difficult.
  4. I’m happy you’re no longer dating people who made you feel horrible.
  5. I’m sorry it’s been difficult for you to find someone to connect with.
  6. Whether you’re single or not, I hope you know how loved you are. You don’t need to be a romantic partner to add value to someone’s life.
