I often wonder why people always pretend as if they care about you so much when they don’t really give a rat ass. They keep on asking you questions which they use as their weapon of concern. They give you that pity look which looks totally repulsive on their already ugly faces. Relatives… They march to your house with their always deceiving and cunning attitude. Not only in the comfort of your own house on festive season, but also at weddings, funerals, birthday parties, family gathering etc etc. They just couldn’t leave you alone and God knows I hate them!
So they asked me, “Do you have a girlfriend? How old are you now?” and I said “No”. But before I can even give them my actual age and explain the reason for my choice to stay single (which on second thought, I didn’t really have to), they started to point out several names of “cousins” and “friends” around my age who are either engaged or married or even worse, have three kids. They gave me this “look” in between their sheepish smiles and giggles. They were like mocking my lack of companionship and love life. Come on! I’m only 25 and I’m a guy. I don’t have to worry about getting pregnant, menopause and all that shit right? I’m 25, I’m single and that’s my choice.
I wish their hideous outfits and cheap perfumes were all their choices too.
Their next question was “How come you still don’t have your own car?” And I gave up. I mean, WHY?! Why can’t they just leave me alone? All of a sudden they are car experts and they started to decide “which car will suit my personality and lifestyle”. Who are these people?! My GOD!! I decided to leave before they start asking my monthly salary. They are all just disgusting. They crawl under my skin like fuckin leeches sucking on my blood or in this case, my pride and self-esteem.
