If you’re not in a relationship, it’s likely that at some stage someone is going to ask – ‘Why are you single’. You need to prepare for this question and have an answer that is quick but doesn’t offend the asker.
Generally, people who ask “why are you single”, are doing it out of a place of concern. Your friends and family may ask the question because they want you to be in a relationship and happy.
You need to explain to them that your single status doesn’t preclude you from happiness. Your answer needs to be natural and shouldn’t make anyone feel awkward.
