How sad for them. If only they knew the truth lol! If your friends and relatives know you well enough, they’ll also understand what is important to you and what isn’t. The fact is, marriage and kids are NOT important to everyone and isn’t on everyone’s check list. Instead of being rude and constantly asking you about your relationship status and when you’re going to settle down, they should be asking you about your hopes and dreams like your creative projects, travel and other accomplishments. Just because your siblings and friends are in relationships or married doesn’t mean that you should follow suit. You are NOT missing out if you choose to be single, even if that is forever! :-)
