    I've been single for 2 years, and I haven't found a girl - besides, I'm not bothered about relationships just yet.

    They ask me every time I go home, which is every 2 weeks.

    What do I tell them?

    "No"

    Why is that a big deal? Unless they were trying to set you up with the neighbours dog or something, I can't see how them asking you if you have a gf would be an issue

    It isn't, them asking it all the time is.

    I'm from an Asian background; this happens to me on a daily basis, not a biweekly basis and I've learned to live with it. Just tell them no, that's all you need to say.

    so just ignore it the next time they ask or say 'i dunno' and leave it at that

    Just tell them you're looking for the perfect girl - someone with the looks of Jessica Alba, the money of Miley Cyrus and the brains of Carol Vorderman.

    At least you had a relationship 18 years ago. I'm single for life.

    Tell them you are happy with your right hand. After all, it's sex with someone you love with worry-free contraception as a bonus.
