'Why Are You Still Single?' 7 Ways To Answer The Dreaded Question

Being Single: 7 Ways To Answer 'Why Are You Single?'

How many times have you been asked, "why are you still single?"

I don't know what it is about the question that irks me so much, but even when it's meant to flatter, it can feel a bit silly. It implies you don't want to be single — and maybe you don't — but would you ever ask someone why they're in a relationship if they seem happy?

Also, how are you really supposed to respond to this question? It's one that makes you overthink. It sets itself up for a long-winded answer or a pity party, even when your reason for being single is simple — you just want to be. 

Luckily, with the magic of Twitter's trending topics, we came across #ImSingleBecause tweets and found a whole new slew of ways to answer the much-dreaded question. See our favorites below.
