Why should you say you are single when you are in a relationship?
You may not be married, but that does not mean you are single.
How can a woman who is not married, but has been cohabitating with a man who is the father of her four children still claim to be single?
Oh, she is the celebrated single mom with the single dad of her kids?
You can only claim to be single if you are not attached or engaged to any man or woman.
It would be misleading to claim to be single when you have a regular mate in your life.
You are not single, because you are hooked!
Try dating a single man who has a girfriend and see how she would react!
I have seen a jealous girlfriend beat up another girl who wanted to snatch her man.
She almost stripped the boyfriend snatcher Unclad on the street!
It would be better and safer to use the term "unmarried" or "yet to marry" and not claiming to be single.
"Are you married?"
"So, you are still single?"
"You are not married and you are not still single, then what is your status?"
"I have a regular date."
"Oh, I see."
She swallowed a lump of saliva and hung her head.
It was better and safer to tell her the truth.
To let her know that I was already hooked.
I have seen sexual harassment online and offline once you label or tag yourself "SINGLE".
Many "wannabes" rush to lure or talk you into a relationship.
It would be better to let them know the truth.
I am not single, I have a man!
Or I am not single, I have a woman.
Give me a break!
