Not married

The look I give people when they ask why I’m not married (see photo)….

It’s generally the first question I’m asked especially within the Indian community. Even an Asian taxi driver asked me when I was in Derby, he also thought it was appropriate to tell me I’m getting a bit old now 😂 and no I had never met him before that journey! 

I get so used to the question that I shrug it off most of the time. Guess how many of those people ask me about my career: 0

I’m not against marriage, I also don’t think it will be the most important thing in my life. Let’s appreciate and celebrate other achievements, career, hobbies, going to Antarctica etc! 

An “aunty” told my niece when she was five that we would have to find a “nice boy” for her. I held my tongue at the time and wish I didn’t. How about encouraging her to achieve her goals, travel, be whatever she wants.

Anyway, rant over! Anyone else get annoyed over these questions?
