How to Answer "Why Are You Still Single?"


If there’s one question every person who’s not in a long-term relationship dreads hearing it’s, “Why are you still single?” Most folks realize it’s rude and intrusive and right up there with questions like, “Have you gained weight?” But there are some clueless types who don’t get it and will still ask and when they do, it’s best to reply with a witty comeback.

A Reddit thread is here to help you have yours ready. It asks, “What is the best response to “Why are you still single?” And these are some of the top replies:

  • “I'm too beautiful.”
  • “I like the classic ‘because the odds here are good, but the goods here are odd.’”
  • “Best one I've heard lately: ‘Supply-chain issues.’”
  • “Just lucky, I guess!”
  • “Because my goal isn't to be in a relationship, it's to be in the right relationship.”
  • “My response last time was ‘How are you not?’”
  • “I answer back with ‘would you marry me?’ Works on both men and women.”
  • “Because having another adult who has any say in the course of my adult life is obnoxious”
  • “‘What do you think?’ It’s like the Uno reverse card, they asked a potentially uncomfortable question now they gotta answer it themselves.”
  • “Go full-on Cher from Clueless: ‘you see how picky I am about my shoes, and they only go on my feet!’”
  • “To tolerate me would require a skill level not yet reached by any mortal being.”
  • “My stock answer: ‘I can count on one hand the number of marriages I’ve seen that I’d want for myself.’”
  • “Poor decisions. Some of them were even mine.”
