7. “Why are you single?”

8. “The right guy will come along when you stop looking.

9. “Why haven’t you gotten married?”

14. “When you get your life together, things will fall into place.”

15. “You should focus on settling down instead of going back to school.”

16. “When are you going to have kids?”

17. “When you become a real adult and live with someone…”
