Help For Single Girls: Witty and Snarky Comments Welcome
If there's an uncomfortable question about being single, I've been asked it. Usually I just slouch down in my chair and hope that if I don't make eye contact, my family will forget I'm there and stop bombarding me with awkward questions. But I've got to face them eventually- so to not only help myself, but other single girls who are dreading the upcoming holiday season, I'll be writing a single girl's guide to surviving the holidays, but I'm not so good at knowing how to answer the uncomfortable questions dropped on me by family, so I need your help.
Here's how it works: take a look at the questions below and leave a comment in the comment box beneath this article with the question number next to it with how you'd reply if someone asked you the question. Extra points for creativity, wit and snarkiness! And if I pick your answer, I'll give you a shout-out in my article.
