I try to keep in mind that if someone bumps into me after not seeing me in a while, I may be asked if I have a husband and kids since I'm in my late 20s. It's probably just small talk and nothing more in that case since the person is trying to catch up on what's happening in my life. It would be nice if someone didn't jump to the conclusion that being female means I will relate best to casual small talk about dating, marriage, and/or kids but that's society for you and it does happen. Especially with family who hasn't seen you since you were little kid.
FWIW, I get the "You have a boyfriend yet?" questions. Some people just want to know since I suck at using Facebook. Others think single woman = fail and want me to know they are keeping track of how long I'm "failing".
Heaven forbid I take a few months off from dating after a break up. I mean, after ending a 4 month relationship in September I can't possibly take a few months to recenter myself and try to find a better man. Oh no. Something is wrong with me if I'm not scooped up by a new boyfriend by October.
Oh, and don't even try to have standards like attractiveness, steady job, good credit, own place, intelligent, and good personality. You are just being picky if you don't settle for the first guy who buys you a drink at the bar. Clearly if I stopped waiting for the Knight in shinning armor to arrive I would see the goodness in the heart of the homeless guy by 7-11.
But heaven help you if you come to terms with the fact that you are chasing a fantasy and bring home 7-11 guy.
Luckly, 95% of my family is sane and I have no problem kicking toxic "friends" to the curb. For the most part, my family's realized that not only is it impossible to backseat drive my life because I'll just ignore them without guilt, but I don't need the help.
