Be prepared to possibly shed a tear.

In my household, leftovers were always a good thing. I felt like food the second day was better than the first. In China, 'sheng nu' better known as leftovers are deemed as a negative. In this case, leftovers are women over twenty-five who have yet to be married. While every culture is different, when it comes to America -- it's rare these days to find a twenty-five year old couple in a serious marriage, yet alone a serious relationship.
In this short video, SK-II takes you into the daily life of young women who happen to live their daily lives being seen as leftovers by not only outsiders, but friends and family. It's hurtful and it definitely hit's him. If your parents or family members ever questioned why you're still single or when you're going to have kids, you can slightly relate -- but nothing can relate to being called a 'leftover'. Keep scrolling to check out an empowering video below.

How would you feel if you were called a leftover?

What's the rush on commitment anyway?

IT wasn't long ago that a lot of girls and women were taught by friends and family members that being single past 25 was the end of the world. I remember running into a girl I knew on the eve of her 25th birthday. She was incredibly depressed that she would become an 'old maid' at the stroke of midnight. More than one girl I dated had set a deadline for herself to at least have an engagement ring in hand before 24 or 25 so that her friends wouldn't look down on her. One went as far as to tell me that she would buy the ring and set a long engagement when I told her I thought we should get to know each other better first. I blame some of it on fairytales and the mistaken belief that a girl's eggs got stale after 25.
Ah this was too much. sometimes I feel pressure cuz my mother always say how she want grandchildren. How can I even have kids is I barely have a boyfriend? I feel the pickings are small for me in my area. Most male peers just want hook ups, barley have education, barley have income, but do have many children with different women. I don't want any part in that.
So annoying. When men date a lot of people and move on they're romantic, when we do it, we're leftovers.
likewise! I just take it day by day. @MyAffairWith I'm in no rush.
@jordanhamilton I hate that it exists in our society but I just do my own thing and deal with the rest
