Panic! At the high tea

Today, while researching tea etiquette for Sunday's tea, I read, "To put milk in your tea before sugar is to cross the path of love, perhaps never to marry." I suddenly panicked that this very lack of knowledge is why I haven't met a man who wants to marry me, and that I never will. I'm only 23. FML

OP, enjoy yourself while you still can! It's up to YOU to decide when you're ready to marry/get married, not some stupid superstition...

That's my reason too. Probably overthinking it, but I also hate seeing people put the milk in before the sugar. Or sweetener. And people who add milk and sugar before taking out the teabag are just gross. Even worse is when they leave the teabag in while drinking their tea.


I leave my teabag in while I drink the tea sometimes. I buy those stringless tea bags, so i'd have to either stick my fingers in my tea or fish it out with a spoon. Too much hassle.

It's all lies OP. I put milk in first all the time for years. I got married...then divorced, a couple of times now. I am reading the singles ads while drinking tea this very morning.
