If you’ve been single at some point of your life or are single right now, you’ve for sure gotten the worst question of all time, “Why are you still single?” Seriously, WTF kind of question is this. Like, why are people even asking this. Usually, the person who asks such ridiculous questions is in a long-term "committed" relationship. The usual follow up is a long speech about how it’s ok and that you shouldn’t worry about finding your better half... "You'll find them when the time is right". Thanks, but no thanks. As if they’ve got life figured out or they’re some sort of relationship guru. And you just smile and nod, patiently thinking to yourself, “FML, FML, FML…” So here are 20 best answers to the world’s most awkward question, “Why are you still single?”
1. Have you ever heard of married super heroes? Exactly.
2. Because I haven’t forwarded that chain message back in 2005.
3. Because I want my cat to grow up in a peaceful environment.
4. Because I’m insane and emotionally unstable.
5. Because… *start crying uncontrollably*
6. Because the other side of my bed is taken by my cat, laptop and remotes.
7. Why are YOU still in a relationship?
8. If I tell you, I would have to kill you.
9. Because I’m too busy building my empire, bish.
10. Because you have to be freaking amazing to change my relationship status.
11. If you could go ahead and mind your own fucking business, that would be great.
Teleport is a new video speed-dating platform where you get set up with five people that you share similarities with and get to go on five dates in 30 minutes.
Afterwards, you're able to continue messaging the people you met during the dates if you both chose the option to keep talking to one another.
It is designed for people of all sexual orientations.
To get paired up, you get yourself a "ticket" for different events that pique your interest, such as one called "Outdoor Adventure anyone?" then you will get to meet people who also signed up for the same event when it begins.
Teleport will officially launch in Montreal on June 17 at 8 p.m. and you'll be able to start signing up for events that evening, which will allow you to go on dates with people of similar interests.
"Starting June 17th, we will have weekly events on Thursdays, 8 pm where people are smartly paired," Teleport told MTL Blog.
Why do the creators think Teleport is necessary in today's world?
The creators of Teleport, Chad Goodman, Tyler Greenberg and Michael Ding have been working on the app for two years now. "We completely evolved the way you meet new people," the creators told MTL Blog.
"The future of social is live, in the moment, and as exciting as the real world. We believe that the best encounters are face-to-face. When you can see their smile, hear their voice, and feel their energy."
"Swiping right will never replace that magic. But, swiping and texting have replaced real connections. The very apps that seek to bring us together are what are making us feel so alone."
They concluded by saying, "Dating should be exciting, in the moment, and face-to-face, not a mindless game, swiping on fake profiles. Teleport is inspired by the real world, and we believe that it’s the first real dating app.”
How can I make a Teleport profile?
Once Teleport launches on June 17, you'll be able to go to either the website or the app, which you can find under "Teleport Dating: Video Events" on the Apple App Store, and start building your profile.
When creating your Teleport profile, you'll be asked different questions like your star sign, how often you exercise, "do you enjoy drinking?" and more to help the team at Teleport get to know you better.
You can also write a bio about yourself and add various photos.
Once your profile is all set up, you can take a look at the events happening for Montreal and see which ones you'd be interested in video chatting people at!
The report compared key indexes of attitudes toward LGBTQ2+ people across 34 countries. Canada ranked seventh based on social acceptance, sexual activity rights, civil union rights, marriage rights, adoption rights and military service rights, as well as anti-discrimination and gender identity laws.
Canada ranks seventh, after mostly European countries
The top five countries on the list were in Europe. Sweden, the Netherlands and Spain made the top three.
According to the report, Canada's provinces only introduced same-sex civil union rights in the early 2000s, while Sweden registered same-sex civil partnerships in 1995.
However, Canada was faster than Sweden to adopt gay marriage rights. Canada legalized same-sex marriage nationwide in 2005 — with some provinces legalizing it as early as 2003 — while Sweden legalized it in 2009.
Compared to Sweden's 94% social acceptance rating, 85% of Canadian society was found to be socially accepting of LGBTQ2+ communities.
Gender identity and anti-discrimination laws
Sweden, the Netherlands and Spain all have anti-discrimination laws for LGBTQ2+ people, the report shows.
The report says that in Spain, since 2007, all documents can be amended to a person's 'recognized gender.'
Comparatively, in Canada, transgender people have been able to change their gender and name (but not their sex) since 2017 — the same year Bill C-16 came into effect, making gender identity and expression a Constitutional right.
'Conversion therapy' has been illegal in Manitoba and Ontario since 2015, and Vancouver and Nova Scotia since 2018, according to the report.
"Public security was informed each time but today I called the police who have opened a case. At first I thought it could be an accident/ wild animals, but the way the heads were removed, I feel it's unlikely."
The resident said they're "deeply shaken up" by the matter. They concluded their post saying, "Please keep a close eye on your cats. Found by a cement pipe by the water on Lakeshore near Bowling Green in Pointe-Claire."
CTV News reportedly went to visit the area with Glance and found a "fifth cat" while there.
This article's cover photo was used for illustrative purposes only.
The production wouldn't confirm which celebs were in town, but based on social media stalking, Jennifer Robertson headed home — leaving Montreal — on April 26.
Jennifer Coolidge posted a photo on April 10 with what appears to be an Air Transat plane in the background. However, we weren't able to confirm whether the photo is of her quarantine hotel room or whether she's currently in the city.
What's the plot of the movie?
IMDb summarizes the plot like this: "Desperate to avoid his family's judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter convinces his best friend Nick to join him for the holidays and pretend that they're now in a relationship."
The film is expected to be released this year — likely around the holiday season.
Where has production been spotted in Montreal?
The movie is being shot in Pointe-Claire, according to IMDb, as well as at Studio MTL Grandé in Pointe-Saint-Charles, according to Le Journal de Montréal.
But the production was also spotted on location in NDG and Montreal West on April 28. Two Montrealers filled MTL Blog in on what they'd spotted around the neighbourhood.
Pamela Breton told MTL Blog there were "no parking" signs related to the production all over Avenue Marcil in Monkland Village.
Linda Mundry said she saw crew — and possibly some of the cast — around the corner of Avenue Marcil and Avenue Monkland.
According to a filming notice from the production, Single All The Way filmed inside Saint Philip's Anglican Church on Avenue Connaught in Montreal West from April 23 to 26.
If you ever see the movie, keep an eye out for signs of Montreal.
