Single people can be thrown the most invasive questions. So of course, they have to find witty answers. This is partially to save face, but also to make the other person embarrassed for even asking.

u/Loveablealienstitch asked: What's the best response to "Why don't you have a boyfriend?"

Not gay.


For the last time mom, I'm not gay.


The GD question just won't go away. And I get asked every single day. But the way they ask it is not a disguise like, "how was your day, do you like to kiss guys?"


Do you need it or just want it?

"Do you need me to have a boyfriend?"


But what if they say "yes because you look miserable" or something like that, then what?

Then walk away.


"Don't you see him? He's right beside you". said in a very creepy/crazy voice also works

Lucky duck.

I've just been incredibly lucky so far!


No green thumb.

"I don't have a green thumb! All my plants and boyfriends keep dying!"


I'll give it a go. I've never been killed.


What a hunk.


I do, he's in the refrigerator. Want a slice?


Gives a new definition to "My boyfriend is a hunk... of meat."


We love a good Vine reference.

I'm a lesbian, Karen.


I thought you were American.


People can be like those Kinder Eggs they used to ban in the United States (for some unknown reason). On the outside, you're getting something you think you know. A person might be small, appear timid, or made out of chocolate. It's the inside, however, you need to be wary of. Sometimes a person might be more talented or dangerous than you realize, and the other times they'll probably just embarrass someone who deserves it with those hidden talents.

Anyone who's taken a biology class knows you can't fight genetics. What we're made of is decided long before we're even a twinkle in our biological father's eye.

Let's face it––some things will never stop getting under your skin. Your complaint might be entirely legitimate, too. That dude who you run into at the supermarket never places her shopping cart in the cart return. Your boss is an ass. There are fires burning in the Amazon and people in power are exhibiting a rather laissez faire attitude toward the matter. You know, the usual.
