    A total stranger introduced herself to me at a party I went to today. She asked for my name and out of blue she asked “Are you married?” Of course I said no yet the weird thing was I heard her tell someone else she was with someone. This doesn’t make must sense. I wonder what this means or I am jumping to conclusions.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Sounds like conversation to me, probably means nothing.

    She may have just been trying to get to know you. Or she could have been asking for a friend.

    It’s an interesting situation because I’ve never been asked that question before by anyone in my life that close or the when are you getting married question as well Even close relatives who have known me for a long time don’t even ask me these questions. This question made me think and wonder what God is doing in my life. I Also have no intention of getting married at this point of my life.

    I like to put people back in the hot seat, so my favorite answer is, "No. Why do you ask?"

    She would expect a witty response from you.

    I'm not really good at these replies is probably one good reason, I'm still single.

    It's a fair question. Maybe she just wanted to joke about marriage with other married people, or something along those lines. More often, people ask me if I have any kids. Usually in the context of their kid is eating Elmer's glue, or has a piano recital etc.

    You could expect ladies asking you "trick" questions in the future. Be sure to have witty replies with you.

    The goal is that your reply strikes their curiosity and humor to start a conversation going.

    Practice helps. I never get any practice so I'm terrible at it.
