#PetPeeves: 10 Things Couples Are Tired of Hearing From Single People

The minute you are in a relationship or you get married, your set of friends and acquaintances get divided into two groups – the singles fraternity and the couples clan. And the former will leave no opportunity to take a dig at your newly acquired relationship status. Here are some of the things couples are tired of hearing from single people. Singletons, you've been warned!  



1. So when are you getting married / starting a family?

People, let us breathe (and allow yourselves to do the same). Couples don’t just tie the knot or pop out babies as soon as they get into a relationship or get married. Well yes, some do, but not everyone, so stop being so nosy! We'll get there in our own time.



2. How did you meet?

It’s fun in the beginning to tell the story. But after a while it gets so boring to explain those sparks-flying-and-butterflies-in-stomach-wala story that even we wouldn’t want to listen to it!



3. Can you actually imagine spending the rest of your life with him?


Things All Couples are Tired of Hearing From Single People


Yes. We already did the imagining part, and that’s why we are together.



4. Is everything the same as before marriage/ when you were single?


Things All Couples are Tired of Hearing From Single People


Of course not. Did you hear your own question? HOW can things be the same when my life isn't?



5. Is the seven-year-itch an actual thing?


Things All Couples are Tired of Hearing From Single People


Not sure, but we kinda feel like you're using us as resource for juicy topics to gossip about with this question.



6. Don’t you guys fight?


Things All Couples are Tired of Hearing From Single People


Yes, we do. It’s every couple’s right, and we often make use of it. But then we also fight with our noisy neighbours and the newspaper boy and the pizza delivery guy…aren’t you going to quiz us about that?



7. Who wears the pants?


Things All Couples are Tired of Hearing From Single People


Both of us wear trousers. Oh, no, wait - you meant who’s bossy? Depends. Are you going to go tell him what I said?



8. Come on. You must wish you were single sometimes.

The grass always seems greener on the other side, but you know what, we’ve been there and done that when it comes to meeting newer jerks every day with whom there seemed a remote possibility of happily-ever-after…it’s not fun.



9. It’s not a couples' thing, is it? / We didn’t think you’d want to come since you’re married and all.


Things All Couples are Tired of Hearing From Single People


Don’t take it for granted that we do only "couple" things or only attend or host "couple parties". We still want to hang out with our old friends who are single! Do you think we would even have been having this conversation if it was the other way around?



10. “I’d get sick of being with the same person for a long time.”


Hey, nobody is forcing you into a relationship. And this works for us.
