SINGLE PEOPLE OF the world unite!

Sick of being asked:

Any women on the scene?
Any men?

and worst of all:

How’s the love life?

We’ve rounded up some appropriate responses.

1. “Fine, how’s yours?”

This works best as a response to the “how’s the love life” question from someone in a marriage/long term relationship.

Throw it right back at them. Play them at their own game. Catch them off guard. Out smug them. Imply that you’re footloose and fancy free and they have to go home to the same old face every night.


2. Coy lies

Hey, cross stitch is a noble pursuit, ok?

3. ”Let’s find out”

The best way to truly disarm them. Maybe throw in a wink for good measure.


4. Just add wine



5. This face:

6. “Pizza and I are very happy together”

7. “It’s critical but stable”
