    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?

    Believe me, I've told them.

    I mean my dad is getting old and a little forgetful, but my mum's... urgh!

    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.

    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.
