Snarky replies when a nosy person asks where you were

What to say when someone asks where you were

You may have been out having a late night with your friends and you are feeling fantastic until you get the text, “Where were you?”

Unless you are in a seriously committed relationship you are under no obligation to share where you are every minute of the day with a nosy person. It’s nobody’s business, and even in a healthy relationship, we all need to maintain our own sense of identity and spend time alone with our close friends.

If you have an ultra-jealous partner who wants to know where you are at all times, they may feel threatened that you’re spending time with people without including them. People approach things from their own place of insecurity, some partners feel the need to be the most important thing in their significant others’ lives.

If you get tired of someone overreacting because you haven’t checked in and they don’t know where you are, use one of our clever comebacks.
