My brother finally got engaged. This makes me happy. It means he will finally quit acting so irresponsibly and get out of the house.

But the bad thing is, now that I'm the only single person in the family... they will start bugging me to settle down with someone, especially since most of my family married in their early 20's.

Anyone else here ever get the "why don't you have a girlfriend yet?" from family members?

no, but as advice do this :

sit down with your parents, tell them :I'm gay. While their shocked and awed, say to them : See if I was really gay that would be your reaction, now leave me time to find the right girl without being hassled. There ya go, unless you are one, well then just say the contrary I guess.

No, I'm pretty sure I never did - even after they knew I actually am as likely to have a girlfriend as a boyfriend. Wink

Seriously though, I got a lot of "Why aren't you married? Why aren't you dating? I work with a guy whose son...." (No one ever seems to work with a guy whose daughter....) I was dating sporadically, but I was roaming the landscape so much, my family never got to meet anyone.

They gave up entirely a couple years ago (female + 35 still = spinster to most people, no matter how modern-minded they claim to be). That was just about in time for me to actually decide to settle down with someone; even though he moved me far from my people, they consider him just slightly below Jesus on the divinity scale because he's male and I'm settled down. They've only recently resurrected "When are you going to get maaaaaaarried?"

My standard answer to nosy family has for several years been "Most people my age have been married two or three times because they were in a big hurry and chose for shit. I'm not really the one with the problem, am I?" I don't know if you're old enough to pull that one off, but pointing out that being in a hurry isn't the best stance in this situation can work regardless of your age Smile

I already did that when my family went to my uncles house for thanksgiving. Now everyone is ashamed and upset with me. It rules Smile

I get the why? question from people, although they may not say it. They don't understand it takes time to find someone that can put up with your shit and vice versa, and that women are all evil. Well, not all of them, but a hell of a lot of them get this "I can do better" thing, and spend years chasing vanity and glance over something better cuz they don't like its toenails or tie choice for tuesdays or someshit.

I put someshit in there cuz i'm too tired to continue ranting.

Oddly enough, I managed to go all these years without blaming all men for the fact that it took time to find the right one. However, you can't deny that men do the "I can do better" trick too - and my experience is that when they do it, it's based almost entirely on the woman's appearance.

But hell, who wants anyone, male or female, who acts like that? Consider it good luck that they got weeded out early. Now they can find one another and breed more shallow yuppie scum. Smile

Yes, but those shallow yuppie scum outbreed us folks who don't like shallow yuppie scum, and people who don't fit that description are fewer and further between. Eventually, everyone will be shallow, yuppie scum Sad

Perhaps I ought to support government eugenics programs... but wait, every politician in the world is shallow, yuppie scum.

Shhhh, don't tell, but the secret is recruitment. We outlive them too, because we aren't having that first executive heart attack at 36.

I've considered doing that actually. But then they'd take it seriously kick me out without a dime. They're very conservative.

Actually, executives (male in particular for the moment, but women are catching up), regardless of healthy lifestyle or lack thereof, often plonk off early if they're Type-A folks who stress themselves into an early grave.

Thankfully my kickboxing is a stress killer...

Don't worry pal, do what I do whenever I need to get out of something: fake your own death. Works for me be it wedding, arranged marriage, or ironically enough, funerals...

Me and my boyfriend get the "when are you gonna get married?" and "when are you gonna have a baby?" crap occassionally, but more often than not we just shrug and run away. I think our families are starting to learn that we won't. Smile
