9 Perfect Reactions To The Invasive Questions Every Woman's Family Asks During The Holidays

Going home for the holidays can be the highlight of the season. Free food and socializing with your family can be a stress relieving experience.

Everyone wants to catch up on how you're doing and how college is going.

Unfortunately, after your 21st birthday, people start asking about "milestones" in your life. People want to know when you're getting married and having kids.

These questions are especially invasive for women who do not plan to get married or have children. If you are asked one of these nine questions, here are the perfect reactions to them.

1. "Are you seeing anyone new?"

Trust me, if I was seeing someone new, then you would have heard about it. I would have run into this house and told everyone about my new bae. Since that did not happen, you should assume I'm very single. Find me a full-time college student with a job that has time to look for a partner.

2. "Are you still seeing [insert name of ex-partner]?"

Nope, I'm not. Did you notice that I didn't mention their name in the last 20-minute conversion that we've had? Or that they're not here meeting the family. Just assume that they're canceled and never going to be spoken about again.

3. "Have you lost weight? It will help you find a boyfriend."

Do not ask about my weight when we're about to sit down to a 2,000 calorie meal. Have you lost weight? That's what I'd like to know.

4. "When can we meet your partner?"

Considering that they're not currently here with us, the answer is no. It's too soon and I'm not ready for them to meet my crazy family. Remember, I want him to like me.

5. "Are you planning on getting married?"

Do you see a ring on my finger? That's how you'll know I'm getting married. Turn your Facebook notifications on and you'll be very up-to-date on the state of our marriage.

6. "Do you want to have a big wedding?"

0/10 do I want to have a big wedding. Just for asking, you are not invited.

7. "How many kids do you want to have?"

Stop. Asking. Women. About. Having. Kids. There are many women who do not want children or cannot have children. If I didn't bring it up keep your thoughts to yourself or ask someone else.

8. "Do you want to be a stay-at-home mom?"

Have you asked my partner if they're staying at home with the baby? No? Then don't ask me. If my partner isn't expected to stay home, neither should I.

9. "Are you moving back home?"

I haven't decided if I'm moving back yet. If you want to pay my rent, you can let me know.

Before You Double Text Read These 10 Reasons On Why He Hasn't Responded To Your Text

If he has left your last message on 'Read' or 'Delivered' here is why.


It's all fun and games until your newest boo doesn't text you back. You're panicking wonder if you did something or how busy are they to not have responded to you. It's a shot to your pride when you are contemplating sending a double text, so you type a message and delete it, just to repeat the same process over.

1. He is overwhelmed with school

School can be very stressful at times, and everyone processes that stress differently. He may be able to give you the attention you desire because his proprieties lie with his academics.

2. He is not interested and doesn’t know how to tell you

Communicating is important, but not all guys know how to. He does not want to hurt your feelings, so instead of telling you straight up he is not interested, he just doesn't give you any more of a reason to be interested in him.

3. Your last message was not response worthy

Whether it was a bad joke or a dying conversation, he did not feel the need to respond. He did not feel like the conversation was worth continuing or that he could bring anymore excitement to it.

4. You are making assumptions about him

Don't make assumptions about a guy and push those assumptions upon him. If you want to grow with him, you can't believe everything you hear. Guys find it disrespectful when you take false information and try to use it against them.

5. He is busy

If he is apart of athletics, has a job or takes part in any extracurricular activities his amount of free time is very minimal. Scrolling through twitter feed or Instagram is a force of habit, but texting takes a little more energy he is not willing to use.

6. He is napping

Boys sleep. A lot. They stay up all night playing video games and get exhausted during the day. His phone is probably on Do Not Disturb while he takes a three hour nap, just to wake up and forget to take his phone off Do Not Disturb.

7. He has heard rumors

You have potentially done something in your past that he is not fond of and he would rather not continue talking to you. Whatever has been said, he believes it and does not see a point in continuing something with you.

8. Someone else is occupying his time

No girl wants to deal with the thought of her guy dealing with another woman, but there is always a chance. He may not be giving you attention because his attention is with another a girl. He trying to play both sides of the fence but cannot equally give you you both all his time. You just so happen to be the girl that receives the lesser of his time.

9. Playing video games

You know it. I know it. We all know it. Guys are addicted to the controller. Whether it be Fortnite or 2K, they are always some how online gaming. They game for hours and do not want to take a break to text you back.

10. He forgot

Boring, but true. Once he forgets to reply he probably won't reply period. Once forgotten, they typically feel like there is no point and it is just too late to say something back. If you see him in person, don't take it personal, make a funny joke out of it and forget it ever happened.

Now you no longer have to wonder why he hasn't texted you back. There are so many reasons why guys don't respond or even text back hours later. You have to decide whether it is because of his schedule or if he is up to no good.

If He Won’t Post You On His Insta, Sis, You’re Wasting Your Time

So he posted a picture with you, but didn't tag you... that's a red flag.


Over the years, I wasted a lot of time chasing people, and I mean, haven't we all?

There is always some part of us that keeps us believing that eventually if we stick with it, they might come around, but... it never happened. We could use all the plays in the book: hard-to-get, wearing red, and even claiming them with cute pictures on social media (my personal go-to), but let's face it, if they weren't feelin' it then they just weren't feeling it.

If this sounds familiar, then here's the good news—today is the day we are going to set you free from this trap.

Don't be like me, wasting your time on someone who doesn't show they care isn't just a bummer, but it's holding you back. For one, it's holding you back from someone who will make you the start of their show. Every minute you pine for someone who doesn't appreciate you is a moment you could be out there finding someone who can appreciate you and make you happy. And two, it's holding you back from spending your precious time on doing you and living your best life. Don't let that be you.

So yes, it's time for you to quit spending your time pining when you should be out there shining. The first step is to start getting real about the social media red flags someone is waving that tell you they are less then what you deserve.

1. He doesn't let you follow him 

Ok, this is a given. If he won't let you follow him, block him, right now, I'll wait. Did you do it? Good. If a potential S.O. is hesitant to accept your follow request, he's hiding something and that's no way to start a relationship. Whether it's a girlfriend back home or a couple of unwarranted MAGA posts, he's gotta go.

2. Refusing to post pictures with you

If instead of posting the cute couple candid of you two swooning he posts a friend group picture where he's mid-sneeze, that's a no-go. For one, he could have other chicks he's trying to hide you from OR he's just not that into you. Boys know IG official is a thing, don't let him rope you into this childish game.

3. Yay, he posted a picture with you, but he didn't tag you

This is the biggest red flag in the book. You go from being S.O. potential with a brain and bangin' personality to just a hot side-piece to up their IG game. If he can't tag your name then he is way less then you deserve, and you should untag him ASAP.

When it comes to relationships, it is so easy to glorify the good moments while dismissing anything that looks bad. When in reality if someone likes you it'll will all feel pretty dang good.

Sometimes we hang on so tight to someone, we don't realize it's only us making the effort and I know, it's hard to hear that someone you care about may feel differently than you—I won't ignore that—but in a weird way, do yourself a favor. You know that you can do better, you deserve better, and you should never settle for less.
