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.’
Others joked about their families also making comments about being concerned with their love lives.
Many responses came from those who’ve received insensitive comments about their weight and career
‘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.

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.’
Others revealed they’ve also been questioned about being single, with one even advised to freeze her eggs
