They just assume...

Sometimes the things people assume about us because we're single really bug me! What is the most annoying thing someone has assumed about you, just because you're single?

I probably didn't react the best today to one. I hate it when people assume I can't cook because I don't have a family. Today was a food day at school. After my coworker tasted my meatballs, she commented, "You're becoming quite the cook." I probably just should have said thanks, but I've been cooking since I was ten. So I just said that I always have been. She was miffed. But she's like that. Everyone always assumes I just don't cook because there isn't a man in my house! It's annoying.

I have a married friend who was searching the bar for cute guys for me Saturday night. It ticks me off that she thinks I can't- or wasn't- doing that myself! I told her that if I noticed anyone I really wanted to talk to, I would make it happen. What she is oblivious to is the looks I get and return all the time. The guy standing right in front of us stared me down and smiled when I returned from the bathroom. He turned out to be obnoxious and we kind of got him kicked out, but there could have been others. It was just really crowded and I find it harder to cruise for men that way. Just because I'm single, that doesn't mean I'm unable to attract and choose my own men!

oh I totally agree with ya shywon! :) I had a cousin that used to do that same thing with me. She would pick put some random guy and I was suppose to fall for him. I stopped hanging out with her for that reason. Now I have a coworker that tries to set me up! I finally had to tell another coworker to talk to her and tell her to stop! I have no problem finding men!

Don't you just love it when people assume that you should be happy to get any single man in your age group, as if you shouldn't be able to have someone who suits your own taste?

What's even funnier to me is that she thinks I need help picking out a man, but the fact that I finally fixed my own oven didn't shock her at all. It's like because I'm not needy, I need men forced upon me!
