I am a world-weary 28-yr old stuck in a deadend job with no husband, no fiance, no boyfriend… heck, not even construction workers whistle and catcall when they see me anymore!

I am the reason my parents have become a punching bag for the older female relative circuit who think nothing of asking my poor, unsuspecting, walking-for-their-health parents: “Aren’t you worried? Aren’t you thinking about getting your older one married off? You have a younger one to think of, you know!”

This blog is being created on the advice of a very smart friend who said “Let it out in black and white- share your angst. Who knows, someone might even propose to you on this blog because you’re so funny, and charming, and intelligent” (all words that I have come to believe are synonymous with ‘Butt Ugly’.) With my luck? It was all I could do not to burst into hysterical laughter. Anyway, as such, I don’t intend to be a prolific blogger. Will only write when something truly blog-worthy happens.

To the women visitors- if you identify with me, shout out, if not, don’t gloat about your weddedness (hmmm, that’s not a word apparently. Strange! Thought it would be. It should be.) To the men- since I will very likely be bashing you, you’re welcome to complain, but please, be decent about it- no profanity. To those who don’t identify themselves with either of the previously mentioned genders…mmm.. I really don’t know what to say. Have fun on your visit here?

Wish all the readers all the best. Thanks for reading.

    Nice writing.

    And thanks for the marriage offer you left on a blog I haven’t updated in ages. My wife was highly amused, and the resulting good mood gave me an extra hour of gaming time! Hooray!

    Very talented writing, much impressed!
    Would also like to mention a common phenomenon that you must, surely, have come across. If you are of ‘marriageable age’ (whatever that is!) you are no longer introduced by your parents / older relatives in weddings/ parties by your name (which they lovingly gave you) or by any of your educational/ career accomplishments(like ‘this is my doctor son) , but instead simply as ..’ the eligible bachelor’. Because thats what you have been reduced too!
