10 things Latino relatives tell you when you’re 30 and single
Seriously, just stop.
I turned 30 this year and while I’m not one to stress over my biological clock, it seems as though everyone around me has become very concerned with my single status. Fortunately, my parents have never been the ones to pressure my siblings and I to settle down and pop out babies. They’ve always been much more concerned with seeing us successful, financially stable, and happy. But their friends, my grandparents, and even some of the random older women in my life, seem to think there’s something cray about the fact that I’m 30, not married, and not running around chasing two or three kids. Here are 10 things I’m tired of folks telling me once they discover I’m 30 and single.
Thanks, I appreciate that. But I’m still beautiful and fabulous with or without a man.
Thanks, but I smashed that clock a long time ago. Oh, and thanks for that incredibly awkward moment.
It’s okay, I’m good, Abuela. Really.
So, I’m doing really good at work. Why haven’t you asked about that?
Oh yeah? That’s nice.
Next subject, please!
Wait, so having standards is a bad thing?
And I'm just so over this conversation.
Just because I’m single doesn’t mean I’m cooped up at home with no social life.
We just started dating, can you chill out?
