My Friend Told Me ‘No Wonder You’re Single’ During an Argument About My Son Wearing a Mask, and It Hurt Me: Am I Overreacting?

A mom writes in asking for advice about an argument she had with her friend in which the friend told her, “No wonder you’re single.” This mom was very hurt by this comment for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that her last longterm relationship was abusive. She wants to know if she is overreacting to being told such a thing or if she has a right to be upset.
