This girl at my job has stated that she is single and I stated the same thing but I noticed in my case a female co-worker poked fun about my status and said-"I need a woman so I can stop eating out so much"


But no one says anything to girl who is single and I want to why???????????????

I don't think that she was making fun of you, she was only trying to encourage you to find a girlfriend... someone that would take care of you, like cook you dinner. You're 34 years old and she probably thinks you overdue to settle down with a "nice girl". You are overreacting, as usual.

So how old is this single girl at work? 20-something?

Why do you spend so much time on dating sites then? Seems like you feel that you need to be someone.

I haven't seen that as an expectation too often. Usually, it's the single women that are seen as the lonely spinsters, and the men are seen as playboy bachelors.

Maybe you should learn how to cook

Please, that is so not the case. In fact, I believe that single men aren't critiqued as harshly by mainstream society as single women. After all, women are supposed to get married and have a family and blah blah blah. You don't hear single guy jokes but you DO hear single women jokes aka Old Maid.
