A LAD has shared the brutal text message he received from his mum about Christmas, asking why he can’t find a partner – and singletons can seriously relate.
Adem Waterman, from London, shared a hilarious WhatsApp exchange on Twitter which asked whether it was “his looks or personality” stopping him from coupling up.

The screengrabs have since gone viral, racking up 48k likes, prompting Twitter users looking for love to share their own insensitive remarks made by their parents.
In the exchange, Adem’s mum kickstarted the conversation by asking if he has a partner to include on the Christmas card she was sending him, to which he said it was just him.
Unimpressed, his mother shot back: “Okay will do. Do you think it’s your personality or looks?”
Finding it all too relatable, many others eagerly shared their own savage remarks made by parents and grandparents – proving Adem wasn’t alone.

“My dad literally told me to look for a boyfriend in the local Morrison’s since I go there so much. Parents are f****** ruthless” wrote one.
Another said: “Several family members have decided my sister and I no longer exist as we’re both single.”
A third added: “If it makes you feel better, my uncle gave me a chat recently about how I should think about freezing my eggs. MY UNCLE not even my mum.”
But it didn’t end there as some took the opportunity to share some other brutal remarks their grandparents have made, about, well, anything.
Do you think it’s your personality or looks?
One person wrote: “I phoned my Nanna once after yet another job rejection. She said ‘Do you think it’s because you’re past your best?’ I was 39.”
Another added: “When I phoned my gran to tell her I’d given birth to a baby girl and I was naming her Violet, my gran said, ‘Oh, I won’t write that name on the card in case you change your mind.’ And she didn’t. The card said Baby.'”
A third said: “My family are also savage! I have recently lost weight and got the following ‘compliments’ 1: Where is your belly? 2: Your face isn’t round anymore 3: Bet it’s easier to get around without that weight. I think they mean well.”
Elsewhere, a woman sent unsolicited pic of bloke’s ‘dreadful little willy’ pretends to be a doctor to shame him.
