Your response to everyone’s favorite question: “And why are YOU single?
I have been asked with this question a lot of times and my answer has always been the same, “di ko alam..” (I don’t know). I used to be annoyed with this question. Why do they worry about me being single? I don’t even mind being one and I don’t actually treat it as a problem.
I have actually put into a blog a list of 10 reasons why my status is Single. One of the reasons I cited there was, maybe because I don’t act my age. Almost all people my age would be out every night or go dating once a week, partying, but I am not. I would rather go straight home after work and sleep and wake up to a new day, or spend a night with friends eating or watching a good movie. I am not friendly. I don’t mingle with new people – I’m shy like that.
I didn’t know the right answer to tell anyone who would ask me why at my age, I am still single. Until that one night when I had a few drinks with one of my girl friends and we talked about us being single still all this time. During our conversation it suddenly popped into my mind the answer which I told her at an instant.
“Sometimes I think that the reason is that maybe… maybe I am too fragile for anyone to handle. So nobody dares.”
Well, who cares?
I am happy as I am anyway. 😉
