“Hi. I’m not engaged but I’m ok I promise. follow the adventures of me and my unwed left hand as we realize things are ok,” is what you will first see if you visit Mary McCarthy’s Instagram account.
She is a 30-year-old woman, whose posts make fun of engagement photos. With her un-bejeweled hand, she enjoys her single life as she visits places and spends good time in New York. Her sense of humor has boosted her 28,999 Instagram followers.
Despite not being engaged, through her pictures she pokes fun at the traditional post-engagement ring photo.
“when u say yes omg i’ve never been happier. his name is sugar and his love is real. i’d like to thank everyone for being there on this crazy journey love u babe…”
When all you want is to take some rays of sunshine, but you end up in a newlywed couple. Just perfect!
She told Good Morning America:
“It’s basically how I’m living my life, and how I’m single and I have my own apartment and how single girls are doing just as fine as everybody else. As jokesy and silly as it is, I try to skew it more to empowerment … even though there’s the emoji with the huge tears streaming down.”
Mary told ABC News that she has started mocking engagement photos since 2016, after the engagement of one of her friends.
She has triggered many comments with her mockery, among which were these: “Too true of our lives right now,” wrote one Instagram commenter. “Not engaged!!! That’s us!!!,” wrote another.
McCarthy is enjoying her freedom right now and in case her engagement day arrives, she doesn’t plan to get a ring.
“It’s looking like that won’t happen for a while but [I] will. [I’ll] ask for like a cool necklace or a horse or something instead of a ring.”
