Everyone's Talking About This Single Lady’s @NotEngaged Instagram Account Aired September 12, 2018

It seems like everyone’s Instagram feeds are full of baby announcements, wedding hashtags and of course proposals these days. But one viewer has found a way to celebrate herself, each and every ordinary day.

On her way back from an engagement party, single New York lady Mary McCarthy texted a photo of her dinner to friends with the caption “when you’re not engaged but you have tacos.”

Her pals thought this was so funny that they encouraged Mary -- who has, in her own words “been a bridesmaid about seven million times” -- to create an Instagram account embracing her hilarious takes on singlehood.

@Notengaged now has almost 50,000 followers, and the 30-year-old chronicles the adventures of her and her “unwed hand” everywhere from a trip to London’s Buckingham Palace to a Friday night cleaning session in her bathroom. Mary never expected the popularity of the @notengaged account or the wedding proposals she’s received.

“I don’t need anymore of those,” she quips.

Before she married John at 37, Rach endured years of awkward questions about her relationship status, so she really digs the way Mary embraces her life just as she is. So much so that she decided to send this single lady, her unwed hand and a friend on a “Not Honeymoon” in the Dominican Republic!
