Somebody just asked me when I plan to get married, when they specifically knew I had officially and painfully ended a 7-year relationship just last May. They knew how traumatising that whole ordeal was, and that I’d never be able to answer such a daft question when that whole thing went down just 4 months ago. Just 4 months ago. I’ve been single for 4 months. They know I’ve been taking this time to heal. They know I’ve been focusing on rebuilding my fractured self-esteem and identity. When do I plan to get married? Aren’t you only supposed to ask that question to people who are IN a serious relationship, and not to someone who JUST got out of one?
Wow, I can’t believe how insensitive and hurtful some people can be.
