Why are so many amazing women choosing to be single? With the Increasing number of Single Women in Society, it’s natural to be thinking about this question.  Some young women choose on the onset to remain single. Then, there are women at varying ages that divorce to become single.

Finding the perfect mate is expected as you are growing up. Young girls dream about their wedding day.  In the past, it was drummed into our heads that for a women’s life to be full and fulfilled, she must get married. This is becoming less and less the case today.

Article about Women Choosing to be Single

Info from this article (click to read)   shows that women are choosing freedom and independence over relationships with men:

“A study released earlier this year in the Journal of Women’s Health which involved 80,000 women showed overall they became healthier when divorcing or separating from their husbands.

Signs of improved health included a decrease in BMI, waist size and diastolic blood pressure, as well as better eating and greater physical activity.

Other research also shows women are happier than men being single, such as a survey of 3,500 Australians in 2014 that found 76 per cent of women reported being satisfied with single life as opposed to 67 per cent of men.

Just last month an Italian woman “married herself” in front of 70 loved ones, saying her happiness did not depend on finding a man.

“Each of us must first all love ourselves,” she was quoted as saying.”

Yes we must all love ourselves first and foremost before we can love someone else. That will help promote a healthier relationship.  I’m not sure marrying yourself is the answer, nor is it necessary.

Also from article:

“Fiona Barlow from the University of Queensland’s School of Psychology said although historically there had been a “single tax” on women’s happiness, there was mounting evidence to support the marked upsides of being unattached.

Dr Barlow said this was especially true for women who were single by choice.

“There is a lot of evidence that single women can be extremely happy, especially when it’s not forced upon them,” she said.

“Single women maintain really strong friendship groups throughout the course of a lifespan so they have lots of people to rely on,”  Dr. Barlow”

A Women’s Personal Network definitely contributes to her happiness as a single person. It’s so important to have friends and acquaintances to go out for dinner with, see a movie or a show, visit a craft or art show, etc. The key to happiness is found inside each one of us. Social Connections, staying busy, having hobbies, etc. all contribute.  Read our article here to learn more.
