What It's Like To Be The Only Single Girl In Your Entire Chinese Family As Told By The BuzzFeed People

I feel like I should prepare FAQs sheet about my single life and hand them out at family gatherings.

I'm always nervous at family gatherings for very good reasons

My relatives always give me the third degree about my love life or the lack of it

"Do you have a boyfriend?"


For the millionth time, I'm single as fuck.

"How are you still single?"

"Are you a lesbian?"

"Even your younger cousin has a serious boyfriend."


Good for her. What has this got to do with me?

"You're not getting any younger. Maybe lower your standards?"

"Don't you want to get married and have kids?"


In my own time. Please!

"You look a little fat. Maybe if you lose some weight guys will find you more attractive?"

"Have you considered blind dates? I know this nice boy..."

"When I was your age I was already pregnant with my second baby..."


I'm not strong enough to give up my freedom and sleep yet.

I look over to my cousins for help and they're like,

And I'm like,


You're dead to me.

They finally lose interest in me and move on to their next prey and I'm like,


I sit back and watch my other single cousins suffer through the same thing I had to go through

"Take your time. Good girls are hard to find and you have to focus on your career..."


The night finally ends and I can go home and have a peace of mind
