25 Things Not to Say to Singles

Do you know what things not to say to singles? My friends and I came up with this list. Sure some of them make us cringe and want to shout, “WHY?!!”. Other’s make me want to pass out from embarrassment. Either way, they sort of kind of make me chuckle too.

  1. I’ll be praying for you sweetheart!
  2. Any dating possibilities on the horizon?
  3. Have you tried online dating?
  4. You’ve just got to be patient.
  5. It usually happens when you least expect it.
  6. I bet you have so much free time, lucky!
  7. Well you’ve got such a bustling career anyways.
  8. So confused why you’re still single! You’re amazing!
  9. People can have kids later and later these days, don’t worry. IVF is really booming!
  10. More time for you to do you! Just focus on yourself!
  11. My aunt/uncle met her/his husband/wife at forty five!
  12. Honestly I wouldn’t deny dating apps, you never know!
  13. I loved singleness, sometimes I miss it still!
  14. Let me ask my man if he’s got any hot single friends.
  15. Are you really picky? *winks*
  16. Bouquet toss time wink wink nudge nudge.
  17. We’ll laugh about this one day.
  18. His heart is still being prepared. Your heart is still being prepared.
  19. There are seven billion people in the world, chances are you’ll pair up with one!
  20. You’ve already got one cat. *chuckles nervously*
  21. Maybe you just need to get a change in scenery.
  22. You should write letters to your future significant other. I wonder what they’re doing right now.
  23. You went to the movies by yourself!?
  24. Men are the worst.
  25. Women are so complicated.

Do you have things not to say to singles you think I should add to this list?

  1. “It’ll happen when you least expect it.” I agree that this advice is well-intentioned, but very unhelpful haha! I find that it only breeds discontent because then I’m constantly hoping it will happen when I’m in unexpected circumstances!

    I feel like singles often are encouraged to make the most of the season God has us in, and that is good advice, but I wish more people would say that it’s also okay to be sad about being single. More than one emotion can exist at once.
