you can't control, what you can't confront, let them know you're fine where you're at, don't pity me, i'm good at the current stage of my choice......

Best Answer

Make them jealous. Tell them how great being single is. Anytime one of my gal pals pulls this on me... I laugh and tell her how I can have the TV all to myself anytime I want, how I can pick up and do whatever and whenever I want, etc. Too many people are needy IMO and need a partner to validate them and sometimes they do not choose the right partner anyway. So many friends just bounce from one relationship to another then try to tell you how sill you are. I laugh when they advise me.

Funny. All my friends that got married alway envy me for being single, while i envy them for being in relationship, marrige, children.<br />
<br />
I'm 33. all these things are soooo far away from me. I would like to get married, but i feel so distant from everyone. due to face deformity and difficult childhood - this dream looks like mission impossible. <br />
<br />
So, for me, it's not only being single, it's also being lonely. specialy when i'm surrounded with people (that i know or not).<br />
<br />
:(<br />
<br />
and i don't feel like advice from f&f people is making things easier.

Politely tell them that their advice is appreciated, but not needed. Tell them you love the freedom of being able to to do what you want when you want, without having to answer to anyone, without having to be some kids servant. Tell them of all the things you love about being single. Marriage and especially parenthood is not all it's cracked up to be. Most marriages end in divorce, and children often ruin a womans body, age them, deprive them of sleep, money, freedom, etc etc. Their "good news" will probably end up causing unhappiness and tons of stress in the long run. They are the ones I pity.

Stop putting a label on yourself. "...34-year-old-always-single-woman." It makes people think that you don't know what to do to find a man - that's why they keep giving you advice. If you are comfortable being alone then be alone don't be bothered with them and if you do, take the "label off" yourself. Otherwise, we "women" always try to fix and help others - its in our nature. If we don't see you in "need of help" we won't offer it.

If you don't feel sorry for yourself, tell them you're quite happy, thank you for asking.

This is going to sound cliche, but don't let it get to you! <br />

Holy.<br />
<br />
You obviously feel okay about yourself. Do it for yourself! Do whatever makes you happy. Love yourself. It's weird, but it's true that as soon as you fully and completely embrace yourself, and feel good about yourself... a partner often magically pops into your life! <br />
<br />
What about little jokes about meeting a guy at these celebrations? e.g.- ''when are you two going to tie the knot? I could probably meet a nice guy at your reception!''<br />
<br />
etc, etc.<br />
<br />
Little, 'stupid' comments like that go a long way. :)
