84. SINGLES: WHAT NOT TO SAY
Posted by thejellyfarm
Most of them dish out crassy, irrelevant information that really makes for great reading while you’re at the hairdressers. (Frankly I’d rather be reading my favourite book than choke my brains with articles about how pleasing your man in bed will make you a better girlfriend or wife. But since that’s about the only intellectual thing you’re going to find at your local salon, one just has to make do, I suppose.)
But having said that, every once in a pink haze of candy flossed features, comes an article I can actually sit back and relate to.
O my gosh! Did I say relate?!
I mean I’m single for god’s sake! I’m NOT an expert at relating at all. A dog relates better than me. I have zero networking/social skills only opinions and a few jokes to spare.
So here I’d like to share a nice charming article from ‘Glamour’ magazine about the 19 Things You Should Never Say to Singles and I can swear by at least 10 that I’d like y’all – whoever is still my friend these days, especially the married and settled ones – to please never ask or mention these in front of me when asking about my single life.
It would save me from thinking about finally getting that much needed lobotomy.

19 Things You Should Never Say to a Single Person
Why do we have so many sayings and maxims for dating? A single gal is likely to get slammed with them ad nauseam as soon as she expresses any unhappiness at her situation.
About thejellyfarmIn real life, I am a television writer and producer...er no...scratch...a television director....noo, scratch....a media loser.....wait, that doesn't sound quite insulting enough....... OK, ahem. In real life, I'm an idiot box expert with a penchant for the creative. In short, I'm a loser with no focus or direction in life. I just go where the creative flow takes me. Mostly it takes me to clogged up drains and stinky oceans but it's going.......going.....somewhere. And this blog is an expression of that mindblowing roadblock. Creative frustration is a great motivator and here is a result of that.
