I (a single working woman in a big city) have seen many of you in the past couple of months but it never worked out between us.
Let me tell you why.
First things first, I think the term 'landlord' is very passé. Lordship left our country with the British Empire. So, let's settle for house owners, which is what you are.
Yes, I am a single woman living away from family and working odd hours. Does that give you a reason to judge me? You own the flat, not my life! *rolls eyes*
I know you are not even aware that you are reinforcing gender identities defined for women. So here's a reality check.
When you asked me those awkward questions, ever so casually, about my working hours, my drinking and smoking habits and more, here's what I wanted to tell you.*Do you have a boyfriend?
Okay boss! I am totally confused about what best behaviour is. And this is all too much for me. I'm outta here.
Okay enough said. My point is, as long as I keep the house clean and my rent is not over-due, why should you bother about my personal life?
