Why Are You Single?

Recently, in a store, I saw a book called: "Why are you single?" Now, I honestly don't know why I'm single. If I had to guess, I'd say it's because I have not yet met Mr. Right.

I figure though, that if any one ever asks me that question, I better have my answer ready. I wasn't sure what it would be, until today, when I was trying on one of my mother's rings. "You like that?" my mother asked.
"No, I don't like rings in general. I wouldn't know what to do if I had one." That, my friends is why I am single. I don't like rings.

That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it.

Not liking rings can definitely be a problem considering that most of what I know about attracting girls revolves around their interest in shiny things and jewelry.

Oh, my dear, we do need to get together before it's too late.... :P

I hate rings too- always have. God-willing, when it's the right time and you marry your bashert, when you're pregnant you can just take them off and claim swelling fingers.

Although you get used to it. Sort of.

It's funny that you post this. The kids (my friend's kids) were asking me today. My friend said it's because I haven't met the right man yet. I suppose I could be married, if I settled, but I don't want to settle.

Hah! Very interesting take on why you're single. I'm gonna go with your original thought though. Just haven't met the man you're meant to marry yet.w

BJG- I guess I am an exception. A shiny screen on an electronic gadget is gonna attract me a lot quicker than any piece of metal and rock.

G6- Where does this come in? And yeah, can't wait. :-D

SA- But it's worth it, right? Lol, that's what they all say about the cons of marriage and stuff. :-P

Michaltastik- I am thinking this might make a great top ten post... :-D

Jessica- But this sounds better, doesn't it? And the first one is too pbvious, why would they still be asking?

Anon- True, but that don't excite me either.

If the key to finding a girl lies in either shiny things or electronic gadgets, I should have no problem, I'm good with both.

If you really don't want a ring, say so. But do be clear about what you mean. I know someone who said she didn't want a ring. It was not that she didn't like rings; she just didn't think they were worth the expense. But her fiance (or his parents) did not want to look cheap, so they bought her a long rope of pearls instead. She confided in a friend that she would have preferred a ring to the pearls. Ah,well, that was not a very good match. They divorced after their baby was born.

A few shadchanim i met sat down with me, gave ma good one over and said 'so-why are you still here' (emphasis on STILl) and that's when I smile and say 'cuz Hashem WANTED me to be here?!?!'
of course I can always say 'cuz I haven't found The Right One yet, but I like bringing 'Yiddishkeit & Bashertness' into my response :)
