Today every student has to move to a different city at some or the other time for their studies. And if not this, they surely have to go for jobs out of their hometowns.
These days bachelors face many problems while living alone and that too with some really fundamental needs. Here are the most discussed problems existing in the society regarding bachelors in India.
These days you'd find this board almost out of any housing society, especially in the suburbs which have become the hub of students and IT companies. The youth faces a big problem for accommodation into the suburbs. It's seen that they are charged much higher than any other tenants. And at any point of time, the society could have a meeting and decide to kick them out with almost zero notice. Bachelors are often thought as to create nuisance in the society and leave bad impressions in the minds of children living in the society. But is this applicable uniformly to all singletons?
The 'Rishtey Wali Aunty' is a famous joke but at the same time, is so true. They'll keep poking you all the time and will tell you to settle down, get married and then have children and what not! So irritating! Aren't they?
Late night parties are often doubted with being involved in drugs and alcohol. It is embarrassing if you are sometimes caught coming late to the house by your parents or some relatives, you are often doubted as a drug addict or an alcoholic. And then obviously followed by long boring lectures on life and priorities.
As soon as you turn 26 or 27, kids of the colony start calling you uncle. Don't worry! Not your fault. Happens to everyone. But unfortunately, this is a problem which can't be solved. Bachelors have to face some really epic problems, I tell you!
This is the most awkward moment. When you are happily roaming with your girlfriend or even just a friend and then a family friend or a relative spots you, all the joy ends there and then. And then a constant hammer hangs on your head until you reach home and finally get a lecture about being a spoilt brat. Obviously, our society very well knows how to mind others' business!
The same happens with single women as well.
If you are a bachelor (especially male), you are often thought as a free person and so expected to work late in the office. This is a pure exploitation. Your marital status should never be a factor for discrimination.
If you are not getting married, then you might be taken as a gay man. Mom and relatives start cribbing about what could possibly have been their mistake in raising you, and then all kind of melodrama following. So frustrating! Why don't they just get that we are busy making our careers and establishing ourselves! And c'mon, only getting married doesn't mean settling down!
It's very embarrassing if you are caught watching porn by your parents. Obviously, you are not a kid, plus even if you are single, it doesn't mean that you don't have needs. You're an adult and surely have a personal life.
When you are away from the house, you obviously feel home sick but above that you constantly miss a partner with whom you could share anything or the one who you know is waiting for dinner after the long office schedule. There is someone who waits for you to get free, and that feeling of belongingness is very special. But as bachelors, we miss it all the time.
Often when students and employees are out of their hometowns, they face problems with basic needs like food and water. Obviously, we don't expect it to taste like a five-star hotel but yeah we need good food which is at least worth eating. Another prominent issue is that of water scarcity and quality. Often in college hostels, the quality of water is very bad. It also inhabits many bacterias and disease-causing agents which put a lot of health risks. In the metro cities too, there is a lot of scarcity of water.
Bachelors are always thought as of dating someone, nobody ever agrees if you say that you are single. Oh, c'mon is being in a relationship or getting married the only life goals? There is so much to do. And even if you are dating someone, is it supposed to be a news? And everyone has a right to choose if they want to talk about their personal life or not.
