Am I that ripe?

Seriously, meat market anyone? What’s with the setting up itch that seems to hit womenfolk once they get married?

Was having a FB chat with an old friend I haven’t seen in yonks, now happily (I guess) married with a kid. The usual jazz about how are you, what have you been doing, blah, blah, blah…

And then…

“so any thoughts of getting married?”

Eh?

“No”

What I really wanted to say is I’m 27. Not to mention bat-shit crazy. Why on earth would I want to marry or settle? Everybody I talk to complains about marriage. I hardly think the wifey would be happy with workaholic, crazy business idea, scuba diving, porn star photographing husband right? Well the latter I can understand, only because I don’t really have the opportunity any more to photograph porn stars…sob…

So what is it with the mid twenties, married girls? Do they just want everyone else to jump the bandwagon?

Mind you this girl’s very sweet but when she hinted she wanted to hook me up with a bird with wider shoulders than mine (I’m sure she’s a nice girl as well but I like my chikas hote/cute…what can I say, I’m shallow) I decided enough was enough and moved on to the fact that I was now an alcohol peddler.

Surprised uncomfortable silence. As much as it is possible on FB chat (which sucks by the way).

Done deal.

think 27 is when your feet start slowly inching toward the grave, one toe at a time :p

what precedes that convo is this:

friend whom i haven't met in a while: so, you have a bf now?
me: nope
friend: ah, better find one soon no.
me: but why?
friend then starts telling how great it is to have one and how we must think of settling down eventually. doesn't help that some of them have already started popping babies out :-s

Gah we totally are at the wrong age. However thanks to experience in handling these situations I now have a perfect arsenal of awesome comebacks to these nosy dimwits who thinks I should get married asap just because they have;

1. What? And spoil my great sex life?
2. Why aren’t you dating/divorced yet?
3. It gives my mother/father something to live for.
4. I already have enough laundry to do, thank you.
5. Is this a proposal?
6. Because I think it would take all the spontaneity out of dating.
7. I’m waiting for you to get divorced so I can marry your wife/husband.
8. It didn’t seem worth a blood test.
9. The mail order bride/groom hasn’t arrived from Russia yet.
10. “I’m not done boozing and whoring”
11. Because having both a husband and a child would be redundant.
12. I’d have to forfeit my billion dollar trust fund.
13. I’m waiting for your son/daughter to turn 18.
14. Why settle for just one.

Lol. I guess they just want to have other couples to go out with becuase they've realised taht all their other friends are still single and enjoying life!

Btw - January has been a busy blogging month for you! I'm so pleased! :)

Oh fruits! I just told a whole bunch of relatives just last night that I'll marry a tree if any one of them came up with another 'Darling you should think of settling down now' nonsense. It shut them up for a bit, Charm Bracelet makes her exit!
